With a brand new look Sweetbird delivers the best flavours, creativity and innovation. After 18 months of development we are very happy to share the new Sweetbird brand with you. We have undertaken extensive research as part of the project, staying true to our Drinking ThinkingTM culture. The new brand conveys quality and care, all elements which go into the creation of the products themselves. We have achieved our goal in creating a well crafted, well thought out brand to be loved by everyone, from store managers
ordering the new look packs to customers enjoying the finished drinks. So although the talkative little bird has transformed into an inquisitive bird foraging for new flavours and taste experiences, our values are the same; to bring you a collection of creative ingredients for making delicious drinks whilst generating generous profits.
Welcoming Zuma frappés to the Sweetbird brand; same great product, brand new look. Following the successful re-brand of Zuma chocolate, sauce and chai, we are proud to share Zuma frappés in their new Sweetbird branded tins. We want to assure everyone that these are the very same Zuma frappés, all seven delicious flavours, just re-branded. The contents of the tins remain free from anything unnecessary, and made with the same premium ingredients to give you great tasting quality frappés every time. The
frappés are moving to sit alongside smoothies to create a complete Sweetbird ice-blended category, making your menu simpler and staff training even easier. Add to this the versatility of the entire Sweetbird range of syrups, smoothies and purées and we hope you will understand why it makes sense to move the frappés to Sweetbird.

Aiste Stancikaite worked in the coffee industry for many years with Zuma, Sweetbird and Cosy. When developing the concept for Sweetbird’s re-brand Aiste was the obvious choice to help convey the carefully crafted, descriptive brand aesthetic we needed to reflect the care and attention that goes into the creation of our products. We caught up with Aiste to find out more about her talents and how the Sweetbird illustrations were created.
What brought you to Bristol?
Tell us a little more about yourself?
Do you like how the brand has turned out?
I’m originally from Lithuania although I’ve been living in different cities in Europe for the past 8 years. I studied Fine Art and then spent a couple of years after graduation traveling and working in cafés, which is where my coffee obsession started.
Yes, I think it looks great. I love the combination of strong digital colour and hand drawn illustration representing each flavour.
Where did it all start with your illustrations?

I picked up drawing again a few years after my studies because I just really missed it. After some time I put a portfolio of my work together, and started sending it to art directors.
I moved to Bristol from Belgium after a friend told me good things about the city. Once I settled in, I started looking for a stable job in the coffee industry which led me to Beyond the Bean.
How do you create your drawings? I draw the main object in pencil on paper, as it’s my favourite medium. I then scan it and use Photoshop or Illustrator to combine all the elements together - whether digital or done using other traditional mediums such as gouache paints.

Let our creativity inspire you and take the hard work out of menu development. We understand the pressure of running a coffee business. With a team to manage, customers to look after, and a million and one chores to do the last thing to think about is often the drinks on your menu that aren't coffee. Which is where Sweetbird, Cosy and Zuma come in. Each has its own distinct style, Cosy for tea, Zuma for all things rich and chocolatey, whilst Sweetbird is known around the world for its full fruit flavours and go-to ice-blended solutions.
Yet, before each product is added to any range, there is Drinking ThinkingTM at play behind the scenes. You'll find plenty of examples throughout this brochure, Zuma Turmeric chai beautifully complementing Sweetbird Mango smoothie, or Sweetbird Raspberry purĂŠe bringing out the rich dark notes in Zuma chocolate. We hope you enjoy making our recipes as much as your customers will enjoy drinking them.

bootcamp To keep your jars in tip top condition, knowledge and regular maintenance is essential. How to maximise the life of jars.
How do I load my jar properly?
You can keep your jar running smoothly with these tips and tricks:
Most blending problems can be avoided by loading your jar properly. Always load your blender with liquids first, followed by soft solids like bananas or spinach, and then hard dense items like ice and frozen ingredients. Always secure lid before blending. Do not fill the jar above the highest measuring line, to do so may cause the contents to overflow.
• Spin the blade manually by the shaft on the bottom of the jar before each use to lubricate the blade shaft. • Don't use your jar as a storage container or let liquids sit in the jar overnight. • Ensure the motor has come to a complete stop before removing the jar from the base. • To maintain the best seal between your lid and jar, do not store jar with lid in place.
How does the dull blade blend? The blade spins over 300 miles per hour, so it doesn't need to be sharp to get the job done. Instead of chipping away at ice and frozen fruit with sharp edges, the large, blunt design pulverises virtually anything.
Why is my jar cloudy? Grinding grains, legumes, beans, rice, or nuts may result in a fogged appearance. Using some greens, spices, and protein powders will also cause it to have a cloudy appearance. Please note that this is a cosmetic alteration and is not covered under your jar warranty. It does not affect the performance of the jar. 34
How do I get the stain out of my jar? • Add the juice of 1 lemon, 2-3 tbsp. of baking soda, and some water to jar. Run on a high speed for about 10 seconds, pour the water out and scrub with a non-scratch sponge. • Vinegar mixed with baking soda and some water will also work. Run on a high speed for about 10 seconds, pour the water out and scrub with a non-scratch sponge.
An exclusive, patented square design with a fifth side and large capacity produces thicker, faster blending and shorter customer wait times. Its extra-wide base, along with a more aggressive blade nearly 4-inches long, has helped the WildSide+ jar to raise the bar in the commercial blending category.
The FourSide Jar's square shape and patented single-prong wingtip blade create a better blending vortex to micronise ingredients. This smaller jar is perfect for eateries that sell lower volumes of blended product.
Rebel+ Jar - NEW The same features that make Blendtec blenders the safest blenders in the world are now available for Vitamix owners. The Rebel+ jar is safer, faster, more reliable and allows for tamper-free blending. Our patented blade is 80% thicker and 30 times stronger than any blade on the market. Please note this jar is NOT compatible with Blendtec blenders.
Coloured Jars (available as Fourside and Wildside+) Coloured jars and lids make it easy for you and your employees to quickly select the right jar every time to prevent crosscontamination of allergens. Send a clear message to your customers that you care about their well-being. Choose from yellow or pink.
Cold Foam Jar - NEW Creating cold foam has never been easier. Select the Small Milkshake cycle on your blender and in 18 seconds this circular bladed jar delivers creamy smooth cold milk for hundreds of uses.
Twister Jar The Twister Jar lets you expand your menu offerings, blending the world's thickest recipes. Nut butters, hummus, thick shakes, dressings and more, the thicker the better! Simply add ingredients and twist the lid while blending.
Rapid Rinse Station Not a jar but perfect for keeping them clean. The Rapid Rinse Station reclaims valuable counter space with its minimal form factor, and is perfect for stacking multiple Blendtec jars. Best of all, it can reduce exposure to harmful sanitizers that irritate skin and cause lost time on the job. 35
welcome to the
foam party Introducing the latest development from the minds at Blendtec; the Cold Foam jar. Cold foam started appearing on high street menus throughout 2017 but up until now there has been no simple way to produce it. Blendtec have developed a jar which turns 200ml of cold skimmed milk into silky smooth, mousse-like thick foam in only 18 seconds. Whether used on its own to top iced coffees, or flavoured with any number of other ingredients - see the next page for our suggestions.
the science of cold foam While in operation, the cold foam jug performs 2 main functions: 1. Produces air that is dispersed within the milk during a liquid or aqueous phase, known as an â€œin air interfaceâ€?. 2. Unfolds water soluble proteins within the milk, which bond to each other and stabilise the air produced within bubble walls, causing the milk to foam.
Why only skimmed milk? The presence of fat weakens the protein structures, inhibiting their bond formation and subsequent ability to trap air. As semi-skimmed and whole milk have more fat, they are less effective at forming a cold foam. 36
Why is it more successful using very chilled skimmed milk? Colder liquids are more viscous. Viscosity plays an important part to help trap air bubbles. Therefore, the colder the liquid, the more viscous it is, the greater the propensity to trap air bubbles.
Can I use the cold foam jug with any blender? The cold foam jug can be used on any Blendtec blender, other than the NBS. It's easy to set the cold foam programme as you would set any blending cycle.
Any further questions? Ask your Blendtec supplier for a How to Cold Foam fact sheet to get you started.

the cold foam
Cold foam is great on it's own, but add Zuma, Sweetbird and Cosy ingredients for light and very profitable drinks. Making any of the drinks shown here, or creating even more recipes of your own is so very easy. Once we started mixing and matching ingredients and seeing what worked, we were hooked on cold foam. Our tips when developing your own recipes is to start small with the amount of anything you add. Cold foam is such a fickle thing, too much of anything and it won't foam. Just the right amount and you will have delicious flavoured foam to top, or make whole drinks at minimal cost. Don't feel limited to cold drinks - we used cold foam to top our turmeric hot chocolate as a low fat alternative to whipped cream and it's delicious.

An uplifting cup of organic tea for a bright spring day – perfect for you and the environment. When we created our range of teas we wanted to make sure they were not only eye-catching but also gave customers the peace of mind that comes when choosing anything organic. Each blend in the range is pure, simple and approved by both The Organic Food Federation (OFF) and The Vegan Society. All our black teas are Fairtrade too. Established in 1986 The Organic Food Federation is now one of the UK’s leading certification bodies operating nationally in all areas of organics. More and more people are choosing organic as production is environmentally sound and
fully sustainable. Organic produce, such as Cosy tea and matcha, is traceable from the farm to the cup because at every stage of its journey it is inspected and certified. This ensures the integrity of any product marketed as organic. So rest assured any of our products bearing the OFF logo are up to these high quality organic standards. We also offer organics in the Zuma collection - Turmeric chai, 40% Organic hot chocolate and 100% Cocoa from Peru. Cosy offers 9 organic teas for every day, take your pick to suit your mood.

get spicy this
Think beyond simple chai tea and lattes this summer by blending up some new ice cold chai frappes and smoothies. We have developed our chai recipes over many years to make sure the balance between the spices is just so. Blending black tea extract with natural ginger and cinnamon, our Spiced chai can be enjoyed as a tea when made with hot water, or an indulgent chai latte with steamed milk and a dust of cinnamon. For the days when tea or coffee isn't so appealing our Vanilla chai combines black
tea extract with vanilla, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. A scoop of Spiced chai in a frappé offers a change from the every day too. Launched in winter, our Turmeric chai is an incredibly versatile ingredient. Use it to make a straight up mellow yellow latte, a golden hot chocolate, or even add to any number of smoothies and frappés for a cool taste of the exotic.
