Sustainable coffee is now available on selected days at Haresfield Beacon, Lodge Park and Dover's Hill, thanks to Off Road Bean, which serves drinks and snacks from its self-contained Land Rover unit. Find out more about this ecologically minded vendor.

Sustainable drinks and snacks

Operating from its Land Rover Defender vehicle, Off Road Bean serves Fair Trade coffee and light snacks with sustainability in mind.

From using only compostable cups and lids, to utilising solar, LPG and lithium batteries instead of noisy generators to ensure quiet running, the vendor is unlike most conventional coffee outlets.

Why not stop by and treat yourself to a hot drink and a bite to eat next time you're at Haresfield Beacon, Dover's Hill or visiting Lodge Park? Please also take home some used coffee grounds, which are great for compost and fire-lighters.
