This smiley face is always there to welcome you when you pop in for a coffee at Hermitage Rd and Co Coffee and Bagle bar. Since she works so hard to remember all of her regular’s coffee and treat of choice, we thought it was only right that we found out a little but more about her…

Her full name is Magdalena Dorofejczuk (you’d need a strong cuppa before even attempting to spell that)

  • She is from the small town of Radzyn Podlaski in Poland
  • She has worked in coffee for 15 years
  • She favours the exoctic fruity notes of a medium roast Etheopian served straight up as an espresso or with a touch of milk in a cortado.
  • She has her very own coffee van called Iris & White which she loves to bring to local train stations (Arlsey Tuesday to Friday 5:30am to 8:30am), festivals and she has even brought it along to make Espresso Martinis at weddings for her coffee shop regulars. 
  • If you fancy having Iris come along for your private event then come and have a chat with Magda.
  • Her favourite thing to do that doesn’t involve coffee is running and hiking.

We try and do our bit to help keep the world beautiful. One way we try and reduce waste to help the environment is to serve our coffee in reusable cups. You can bring in your own coffee cup and we will give you 25p off your coffee. We also searched high and low for the best re-usable cup we could find and settled on the Upper Cup, which helps insulate your coffee so its nice and hot. You can buy two different sized 8 oz (perfect for cappuccino and flat white) and 12 oz (even better for long black and lattes) in our shop. Let’s save the world one coffee at a time.

Our beloved charity toaster is also helping us raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Come and help yourself to toast, jam, marmite and peanut butter and just pop some change into the charity box to help us raise more. We are hoping to raise a whopping £20,000 for charity across the family business in this our 20th year, it’s a big goal but we are running, sky diving, swimming and walking our way towards it. Suddenly toast seems like a much easier option hey!
