The best business coffee shop, ever?
Welcome to Coffee Exchange (CX), an independent coffee shop located in the heart of the Isle of Man’s premier business district. With many decades experience in the corporate world, owners Jane Dellar and Stuart Peters wanted to create somewhere businesslike for busy people: sleek and chic rather than the more traditional high street offering.
The CX project was born after a frustrated conversation one day (as consumers ourselves): “how hard can it be to offer great coffee, simple but good quality home-made food and employ staff who are friendly without being intrusive and efficient without being abrupt”? The answer is that it’s very hard! We’ve learnt some expensive and frustrating lessons, and we’re still learning! The one thing we choose to import is our coffee (until they grow it on the slopes of South Barrule) - it’s the foundation of our business and we think ours is the best-tasting house blend you’ll find anywhere. Every cup is ground to order to ensure it’s fresh and full of flavour. We offer it optimised for sit-in customers in 12oz cups with a 16oz option for take-outs - and whilst our Cappuccino and Americano feature two shots of espresso, the others are single shot so you get the flavour without being overpowered by the caffeine hit (a second shot is free if you like that buzz!).
We want you to enjoy the CX and feel at home here - so there’s free wi-fi (ask for the current password) and we’re keen to listen to your suggestions on how we can improve (our personal email addresses are on the contacts page).
