We can offer latte, cappucino, expresso and macchiato or a straight forward black coffee with hot or cold milk on the side. As well as enjoying a cup of coffee in store, take home some coffee beans to enjoy at home or we can grind them for you ready to use.

The breads we sell are delivered daily from our local baker here in Abingdon (Wootton Road), De Gustibus.
All De Gustibus breads are handmade using their own, unique long fermentation process and recipes for maximum flavour and keeping qualities. They are made with fully natural ingredients with no flour improvers or emulsifiers.

Listed here are those we stock most regularly but they do produce many more. Most of their breads can be ordered through us here at Added Ingredients (01235 537405) so by all means visit their website too ( see what they have and phone us to order (before 2 p.m. each day for delivery the next day; Friday 2 p.m. for Monday) Some breads are only available at their Borough Market site and shop so if you're lucky enough to visit the famous foodies market do see the rest of his range.
Listed below are some of the breads we sell regularly:

  • Old Milwaukee Rye
    The American pumpernickel made farmhouse by New York's Delis as Pastrami on Rye or the famous Reuben Sandwich. Wheat flour 65%, Rye 35%, Molasses, Fat, Egg, Sugar, Salt, Yeast, Caraway
  • Six Day Sourdough
    The ferment is started from a tiny bit on the first day and refreshed for days and then on day six handed up and baked to a succulent but mild bread with excellent keeping qualities. Wheat, rye, wholemeal, sea salt, purified water and malt make this delicious special and yeastless bread
  • Ciabatta
    The classic Italian loaf (the slipper), specially baked with extra virgin olive oil for days of natural freshness and maximum flavour, the softness unique to our creation makes it the best selling ciabatta
  • Tomato Ciabatta
    Italian herbs and sun dried tomatoes give our own creation its special taste
  • Spinach Ciabatta
    Succulent leaf spinach and a hint of spices makes this bread truly unique
  • Garlic Bread
    Forget the pizza place / supermarket kind and indulge in a sourdough ciabatta like flat bread, spiced with our own herb selection and balanced with garlic to give it maximum flavour. Toast it, spread butter on it and be spoiled for choice
  • Olive Focaccia
    Soft and moist with a distinctive taste of fine blended herbs and green and black olives finished with extra virgin olive oil, good eaten on its own, grilled, filled or topped, you will find nothing like it
  • Fresh Rosemary & Sea Salt Focaccia
    The classic Italian pre-pizza bread, deliciously eaten with melted cheese or garlic topping, or just on its own
  • Walnut bread
    A rustic loaf made with wheat, rye and wholewheat, walnuts, good with cheese but anything else goes with it as well
