The Dad’s Pies secret to making a great pie. ‘Let’s only ever make pies we want to eat,’ came the cry. Then ‘Let’s also make them good for you,’ came another cry. So once we’d worked out where the echo was coming from, we began a lifelong pursuit of pie-fection – mixing wholesome, top-notch ingredients with plenty of love and care.

Proud to say Pay-It-Forward has been a great success for our essential services.

Next time you're in have a chat about how you can help. It's not just the service stations doing it.

Fair Trade Coffee

Fairtrade provides a more equitable alternative by:
  • paying producers a fair price, and ensuring workers a decent wage
  • paying a premium to be used to invest in projects that benefit local families,  the local community and the environment and
  • creating direct and long-term trading relationships between farmers and traders.

Colombian Decaf

Altura Colombian decaf uses the Swiss-Water decaffeinating process which is 100% natural.

The Swiss-Water method is the most traditional, as it involves no chemicals.

This decaffeinating process effectively removes a minimum of 97% of caffeine from the green bean to ensure that it can be classed as a true decaffeinated coffee.
