Owners Steph and Alex Ridgway have long wanted a business that draws the community together through quality products and sustainable practices. Whether it be the lavish vegetable garden in the backyard of Rainworth General or the small batch roasting, the owners aim to create an experience that is more than a quick coffee catchup.
Part of Neighbourhood Coffee’s efforts to be a sustainable business includes their inclusion of a ZeroWaste composting system which allows them to use their food and paper scraps for feeding the garden. Continued partnerships with companies like BioPak extends the possibility for them to further their recycling efforts with takeaway cups.
After first opening their Rainworth General in October 2015, they have since opened a beautiful Roastery space and cafe to the public. The location offers on-tap iced tea, coffee including specialty brews and tasty food. The space is beautifully designed and offers dine-in or takeaway options.
