Paddy & Scott’s launch flagship Coffee Shop at University of Suffolk

Suffolk-based coffee impresarios, Paddy & Scott’s, have launched a flagship Coffee Shop at the University of Suffolk.

The Cargo Cafe on the Waterfront has been re-launched with Vertas, one of the fastest growing multi-service facilities management companies in the UK. This-uber cool space has probably the best view of the vibrant Ipswich dock area. The team has used the exposed concrete shell as inspiration for the design and introduced squirrel cage lighting, hide chairs, up-cycled wood and furniture to create an urban/London look and feel.

The whole project has a strong environmental feel. Students will be served coffee grown on the Paddy & Scott’s farm in Kenya and can even invest in their own coffee tree on the farm.

Scott Russell, CEO and Founder of Paddy & Scott’s, explains: “We’ve banned all single use plastics and will be using fully compostable coffee cups and lids made from corn starch. We’re also introducing a discount program for students who wish to use their own cups.”

Keith Buet, group operations director at Vertas Group, shared his delight in joining up with the firm for the relaunch. “This landmark building deserves a strong brand, and in Paddy and Scott’s we’ve found a partner which shares our values of sustainability and integrity.”
