Launch of NEW Devon Roast on the English Riviera

Costa Rica Plantation Coffee Company launched their exciting new 'Devon Roast' brand at the prestigious South Devon Tourism & Hospitality awards in Torquay.

Costa Rica Plantation Coffee Company launched their exciting newDevon Roast brand at the South Devon Tourism and Hospitality Awards at the Riviera International Conference Centre in Torquay.


Owner, Peter Blake supplied the coffee (and tea) service at the event with delicious Huehuetenango Coffee specially selected for the evening. Coffee technician Roger Keys was on hand to ensure the coffee was perfectly prepared.Guests were also given a bag of freshly ground Huehuetenango Coffee to take home.

Costa Rica Plantation Company also sponsored and presented the South Devon Tourism & Hospitality Awards' Best Cafe/Tearoom category.


The NEW DEVON ROAST brandreflects the fact that all the coffee is freshly roasted by coffee experts right here in Devon and delivered fresh, ensuring an amazing taste.



Peter Blake recently took over Costa Rica Plantation Co from previous owner Beau Neilson and has moved to the English Riviera from Shropshire.

Peter said, The Costa Rica Plantation Co has been trading from the same premises in Abbey Road for over 60 years and two employees, professional roasters Paul Bell and Gary Ireland have 40 years sterling service between them. I want to build on these fine traditions and work towards a much wider understanding locally of the greatly superior taste of freshly roasted coffee and its powerful potential to attract customers and keep them coming back. Ive also brought in a coffee technician and great character, Roger Keys, who really knows and loves his coffee and is superb at passing on that passion to others.

When Costa Rica Plantation Co started 60 years ago, it was importing beans exclusively from Costa Rica but the company now selects a range of the very best beans from around the globe, expertly roasting them on-site, then immediately packing and delivering the coffee when the flavour is still at its peak. New additions include Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance and Organic products from single estates around the globe.

The English Riviera has been developing quite a reputation for locally produced food and drink, and coffee has the potential to make a huge difference to customer satisfaction.

Costa Rica Plantation Company does not hold any stock, preferring to await orders before preparing and packing. All the coffee is delivered absolutely fresh where and when the customer wants it friendly, expert service and really good value is paramount.
