In five words explain your business

Welcoming, High Quality, Inclusive, Community, Tasty



What’s your favourite drink and brunch and why?

Pete: Piccolo latte with Anthony Andrews Black Benedict

Stephanie: Formosa oolong tea and Scandinavian waffles with sour cream and fruit compote

Why did you want to become a card partner?

As we have our own young son we have always wanted Elements to be very family friendly and the Derby Mums card fits perfectly with that. We’ve just introduced an updated version of our children’s menu. At Elements we want to provide a comfortable and welcoming space to think, relax and meet friends and family!

What is the biggest trend of 2019 for you?

Vegan and non-dairy options, we have a range of choices including plant based milks, vegan dishes and vegan afternoon teas.

When did you get your lightbulb moment in business?

After a bereavement and period of illness we decided it was time to focus on our pipedream and so we opened Elements Tea and Coffee House.

If you could give your 13 year old self a few wise words what would it be…. ?

Worry less and have more fun. Life is far too short.
