Congregations will politely agree to differ over styles of worship. They’ll live and let live over Christian doctrine. But oh dear, when it comes to after-church coffee it’s nothing short of jar wars. Cappuccino? I’d prefer Cubano. Mocha? Make mine Macchiato! So, when buying in bulk, your first stop has to be CRE. Best of all, many exhibitors are committed to fair trade and ethical sourcing for coffee, tea, chocolate and even ‘green’ building materials. You’ll discover specialist goods and services for churches not easily found on the high street. And meeting the characters behind the coffee beans makes all the difference. In our opinion, nothing beats it.
