According to a recent report by Royal Mail, consumer trends show the ‘Subscription Box’ market is forecast to soar by 2022. With lives becoming busier be that longer working hours or ferrying children to their respective activities; consumers are taking the opportunity to shop online during any free moment they can find.
We at SD Bell’s have stepped up to the plate to ensure our customers can benefit from a weekly, fortnightly or monthly subscription. Managing Director Robert Bell encourages customers to sign up to the tea and coffee subscriptions as they, “enable everyone to taste coffees they may never have chosen to try.”
There is something to cover all tastes and budgets. Should you be a coffee connoisseur you can choose from a medium or a dark roast subscription. Perhaps a tea enthusiast? Then the choice of a Natural Black Tea, Flavoured Black Tea or Green & Oolong subscription will keep you going.
Keep an eye out for our event-based subscriptions allowing you to sign up a loved one for a short period of time.
Our Speciality Tea Selection tins are a tea-drinkers delight! Sixty speciality string-tag teabags individually wrapped and available in three varieties:
We have curated a range of gift hampers to suit all tastes and budgets, each named after locations and landmarks significant in SD Bell’s long history.

Robert meets with Farm Manager Guido Maciel and Ipanema Industrial Director Rodrigo Rodrigues at Rio Verde coffee farm. The farm is one of Brazil’s oldest, founded, would you believe, in the same year as SD Bells, 1887.
In the Minas Gerais, about 5 hours drive north of São Paulo. Nearest town Alfenas. It’s winter. Weather is like a normal Northern Irish Summer but with a bit less rain🤗

There are 8,000 seedlings in this bed, and 1.3 million on the plantation. All planted by hand, and the lucky ones will mature by September ready for transplant into the fields.
Close-up of the seedlings. Look closely. The bean is planted in nutrient-rich sand, flat-side-down, and is pushed up from below by its plucky little root.
Robert picked these yesterday afternoon. Red acaia beans, 3 nice ripe ones, plus some over-ripe. Like raisins on a vine, the black bean looks unappetising but is a coffee cuppers delight. The ‘mucilage’ (flesh) on the cherry, rather than being removed by mechanical ‘pulping’ has been absorbed into the bean, giving it a fruity sweetness.
Robert with a one-yr old Acaia coffee tree. Will be productive in 3 years. A very resilient strain, very productive.
The flavour profile of these coffees, grown in the Sul de Minas area of the Minas Gerais region is full bodied with fruity aromas and citric flavours.
Following Robert’s successful tea trip to Darjeeling back in April, he is travelling again, this time to Brazil to discover the secrets behind one of the most innovative, quality driven coffee farms in the world!
Over the next few days Robert will be sharing photos and expertise gained from his trip. Watch this space too, for the forthcoming roasting/ tasting evening, which will take place at the end of the summer.
