A world of teas at new cof­fee house

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A NEW in­de­pen­dent cafe is set to open its doors in Amer­sham next week.

Jacs, an in­de­pen­dent cof­fee house is to open in Amer­sham af­ter agree­ing a lease with Sor­bon Es­tates.

The start-up busi­ness will open in early Septem­ber in 47 Hill Av­enue, Amer­sham.

The spe­cial­ist, ar­ti­san tea and cof­fee house will of­fer cof­fees from around the world and a range of more than a dozen teas.

Sand­wiches made with lo­cally-sourced in­gre­di­ents, pas­tries and hand­made cakes will also be avail­able.

Jacs says its unique of­fer­ing is its en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly ap­proach to cater­ing.

It of­fers eth­i­cally sourced prod­ucts and all take­away pack­ag­ing is 100 per cent re­cy­clable and biodegrad­able. In­stead of sell­ing wa­ter bot­tles, the shop will of­fer a fil­tered wa­ter point to re­duce the amount of plas­tic be­ing dis­posed in land­fill.

Cus­tomers will be en­cour­aged to make a do­na­tion to help fund clean drink­ing wa­ter in Africa.

The cof­fee shop’s in­te­rior will also re­flect its sus­tain­able roots, with up­cy­cled fur­ni­ture and re­claimed wood.

Lo­cal en­tre­pre­neur and owner of Jacs Peter Wells said: “I am re­ally ex­cited to be open­ing up my first shop in Amer­sham.

“The town has a proud his­tory of sup­port­ing in­de­pen­dent businesses as well as cham­pi­oning good causes; we hope our eth­i­cal and en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly ap­proach will be some­thing the lo­cal com­mu­nity will ap­pre­ci­ate and sup­port, as well as the qual­ity of our teas and cof­fees”.

Di­rec­tor of as­set man­age­ment of Sor­bon Es­tates Chris Nay­lor said: “Jacs will be a trendy but ac­ces­si­ble ad­di­tion to the businesses avail­able on Hill Av­enue. It will pro­vide the lo­cal com­mu­nity with a so­cial hub, of­fer­ing ex­cel­lent food and drink with an eth­i­cal mes­sage at its heart.”

Jacs is ex­pected to open on Satur­day, Septem­ber 3 with live acous­tic mu­sic and ex­tended open­ing hours.

Nor­mal open­ing hours will be Mon­day to Fri­day from 7am to 7pm, Satur­day from 8am to 6pm and Sun­day from 10am to 4pm.
