One of the country’s leading coffee experts has chosen Harrogate’s Pannal Business Park to open a new venture.
Mike Riley, the former Head of Coffee at Taylor’s of Harrogate, has taken a 350 sq ft office within the former Dunlopillo headquarters, to launch his Kipanga Coffee Consultancy.
From his Pannal Business Park base, Mr Riley, who has been in the coffee business for 25 years, will import coffee beans from around the world and then sell on to more than 150 small roasters within the United Kingdom.
His new office has already been kitted out with a top-of-the-range coffee roaster and coffee making machine, as well as a sampling facility.
Another new tenant within the former Dunlopillo office block is digital agency, Adigi, who have just moved into a 560 sq ft unit.
Nick Prescott from commercial property agents Gent Visick said:
We are delighted to be able to accommodate both Mike and the Adigi team here at Pannal Business Park.
Pannal Business Park offers flexible accommodation and is the home to a growing number of diverse businesses.
