And, as a natural accompaniment to a meal, coffee plays an important role in that experience.

That is why we are proud to be partnering with Soul Coffee – a company with a keen understanding of coffee and its local heritage.”

Speaking about his company’s push to revive Sri Lanka’s coffee culture Rinosh Nasar, CEO and Founder of Soul Coffee, said, “Coffee has a long and rich history in Sri Lanka and we are proud to play a part in reviving that aspect of our culture in today’s environment. This partnership plays a big part in that revival as it marks the beginning of two great heritage brands coming together – Ceylon Coffee and the Mount Lavinia Hotel – which will greatly enhance the local coffee experience we provide visitors to our beautiful island nation. I look forward to exploring further opportunities to add value to the coffee experience with the team at the Mount Lavinia Hotel.”
