Mano a Mano (‘hand to hand’) combines unique coffee blends with sustainable sourcing. They believe that great coffee begins on the other side of the world, where coffee farmers work hard, cultivating their crop with the same dedication to authenticity, transparency, and quality as themselves. Mano a Mano’s best-selling blend, the Espresso Blend contains beans from different botanical varieties, geographical origins, and flavour profiles that are expertly blended to create a balanced, rich, and clean shot that is filled with caramel, cherry, and chocolate notes. While their ingredients change seasonally, Mano a Mano’s intention remains throughout the year. Open Monday to Friday 7am – 3pm and closed on the weekend.
