Congratulations are in order to Isle of Wight based, Jasper’s Artisan Coffee, who is among the Great Taste winners of 2018.
Great Taste are the world’s most coveted food awards and celebrate the very best in food and drink. Out of over 12,600 products to be judged, Jasper’s Artisan Coffee was awarded 2-star Great Taste award, which means judges dubbed it above and beyond for its Cloud9 Espresso Blend.

Another badge of honour for Jasper’s
As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind-tasting by hundreds of judges.
Peter Newill (Coffee Roaster at Jasper’s) explains:
“We are delighted with this award. It shows yet again that the high quality coffees that we offer, as a small Island roastery, are recognised at a national level. We should also thank the businesses across the Island that sell our produce and we look forward to adding the Cloud9 to the range.
“Our congratulations also go, of course, to the other Great Taste Award winners on the Island this year.”
