In 2016 Peter and Carol Johnston bought John Watts and Son, Carlisle coffee roasters since 1865. Watts is a successful and iconic Carlisle business so the Johnston’s decided to retain the original name. Their plan is to evolve and expand the business. They have extended the range of coffee and now seven Fair Trade coffees.
“Having a stall at Brampton Farmers Market is not only a good way to expand the business but also to connect with local food suppliers as we want to source everything that is used in the café and shop from within 50 miles.”
‘We are launching our new Christmas Hamper this year. You can choose from 6 different coffees or teas, all with tasting notes and a Boden travel press or tea-mug, a yoyo mug. These can be posted out.”
