Beat the Summer Heat with Grumpy Panda's Refreshing Beverages!

As the sun blazes and temperatures soar in Norfolk today, even the most ardent coffee aficionados may find themselves yearning for something more refreshing than a traditional steaming cup of joe. But fear not, we at Grumpy Panda have got you covered with invigorating alternatives that will cool you down while still offering that delicious taste you crave.

For Coffee Lovers

How about substituting your regular hot coffee with our fantastic Iced Coffee recipe? It's super easy to prepare and promises a delightful experience for your taste buds.


  • 60ml of Grumpy Panda's freshly roasted coffee, cooled (We recommend The Every Day Grump for its sweet, chocolatey, caramel, and nutty flavour.)
  • 120ml of cold milk
  • Ice cubes
  • Optional: sugar or sweetener to taste


  1. Brew your coffee and allow it to cool.
  2. Fill a glass with ice cubes.
  3. Pour the coffee over the ice.
  4. Top up the glass with cold milk.
  5. Stir well and sweeten to taste if desired.
  6. Enjoy your refreshing iced coffee!

For those feeling more adventurous, we encourage you to try cold brewing. Immerse your coffee grounds in cold water for 12-24 hours, strain and serve over ice. This method is an absolute game-changer for savouring coffee on these scorching summer days.

For Chocolate Lovers

If you lean more towards the cocoa side of things, we've got something for you as well. Our Iced Hot Chocolate is an excellent summer beverage, offering a cold, chocolatey delight.



  1. Combine the hot chocolate mix with a bit of hot water to create a paste.
  2. Stir the cold milk into the paste until well mixed.
  3. Fill a glass with ice cubes.
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture over the ice.
  5. Stir well and relish your delicious iced hot chocolate!

With Grumpy Panda, you can beat the heat while still indulging in your favourite caffeine or cocoa fix. We deliver freshly roasted coffee and artisan hot chocolate straight to your doorstep, promising a perfectly refreshing experience, with no heat required!

Unveiling the Cupping Scores of Our Speciality Coffees!

Ever wondered how coffee professionals distinguish a great coffee from an average one? It all boils down to the 'cupping score'. This numerical coffee quality indicator is what sets speciality coffees apart from the rest.

At Grumpy Panda, we're proud to offer a range of speciality coffees, each with their unique cupping scores. From the exotic notes of our Congo-sourced "Hoity Toity" to the robust flavour of "Juju Java" from Java, our speciality coffees cater to the most discerning palates. Each coffee's cupping score is a testament to its quality, aroma, flavour, aftertaste, acidity, body, and balance.

In this blog post, we'll demystify the concept of cupping scores and introduce you to our top-rated speciality coffees. Whether you're a coffee aficionado or a casual coffee drinker, this guide will enhance your understanding and appreciation of what goes into your cup of Grumpy Panda coffee.
