Tiki Tonga spurs Tottenham to coffee heights
Football club is UK’s first to ban instant coffee.
Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium is the first in the UK to serve only top quality coffee. There’s no instant and no milk powder – fans will be able to enjoy proper espresso and filter coffee, served with fresh milk. The coffee is provided by Tiki Tonga, the brand that offers blends for both social drinking and for sports, delivering the benefits of caffeine to athletes in a wholly natural way. Tiki Tonga’s sister company, Caffeine Limited, is supplying the stadium’s coffee machines, including advanced espresso systems from Schaerer and Gaggia, and bulk brew machines from Bunn.
Spurs recently announced Tiki Tonga as the official supplier of coffee, with club legend Ledley King and Saracens captain Brad Barritt, who is co-owner of the coffee brand, serving the first cups to the public at the stadium’s The M restaurant.
Brad Barritt said, “We are delighted to partner with Tottenham Hotspur as their Official Coffee Supplier. Tiki Tonga Coffee is inspired by sport and strives to bring people together.
“We are immensely proud to be sharing our story and serving our product throughout one of the finest stadiums in the world and hope the loyal fans and visitors enjoy our coffee.”
Justin Stockwell, managing director of Caffeine Limited and co-founder of Tiki Tonga, said, “As both a sports fan and a coffee advocate, I’m delighted that Spurs have set a new standard in coffee service at stadia.”
Tottenham Hotspur has strong sustainability commitments. The club says it was drawn to Tiki Tonga because it is ethically sourced, with full traceability from bean to bag, and the brand supports both local and international charities – The Matt Hampson Foundation and LIV in South Africa.
Tiki Tonga’s product will be on sale throughout the stadium on matchdays and via a Gaggia barista machine in The M for non-matchday visitors.
