WITH a major focus on keeping local partnerships central to its business model and strategy, Mana Coffee’s new grab-and-go café offers coffee made from locally grown coffee and beverages made from local fruits.

Mana Coffee’s newest outlet is now open on the ground floor of ANZ House at the bustling Victoria Parade in the Capital City, targeting the busy working professional downtown Suva.

Its co-director Mue Bentley Fisher said their approach remained to support locally-made, authentic Fijian products.

She said they would also ensure that while embracing the international cafe culture they are considerate towards tastes and ingredients that are closer to home.

In a media release issued yesterday Ms Bentley Fisher said the new cafe now offered Suva’s first Nitro Cold Brew coffee on tap, only available at Mana Coffee’s ANZ House outlet.

Mana Coffee’s grab-and-go café offers its signature locally-roasted house blend, supplied by South Pacific Coffee Company (SPCC).

“SPCC cold brew coffee is made from 100 per cent wild Fijian grown coffee beans,” Mike Dennis, founder and owner of SPCC said.

“Our beans are dried, processed, roasted and brewed at SPCC in Nadi and 100 per cent Fijian made.”

In addition to great coffee Ms Bentley Fisher said they offered a range of healthy cold drink options, such as Food Culture Fiji’s healthy detox juice, filled with nutrients from local moca (spinach), turmeric, ginger, pineapple and banana.

“Our fruit slushies are also made from 100 per cent seasonal local fruit pulp, including mango, watermelon and soursop, supplied by Icefruit Fiji, based in Nadi and newly opened at Damodar City in Suva, featuring their amazing locally-made gelatos — highly recommended,” she said.

Mana Coffee operates its main outlet, which will service their new grab-and-go cafe, at 8 Selbourne St, corner of Des Voeux Rd. Mana Coffee is locally owned by Darran and Mue Bentley Fisher and was established in 2020.

“We’re thrilled to now be located in the heart of Suva, where the coffee culture is truly alive.

“We look forward to offering customers in the area our signature locally-roasted house blend, supplied by SPCC, cold drinks and quick and easy meals.”

The new café outlet will also exclusively supply Lami Kava at the new cafe outlet.
