Whether you’re new to coffee or a coffee aficionado we’re certain that you’ll find our coffees an absolute delight. Here is a little snapshot of our process.
The coffees must score above 80.
And we aim for >85/100 points in the categories of Fragrance/Aroma, Flavour, Aftertaste, Acidity, Body, Balance, Uniformity, Clean Cup, Sweetness, and Defects. Have a look at the full protocols, if you’re interested.
We aim for a light to medium roast profile.
Dark roasts exist to hide defects in poor quality coffee. There’s nothing to hide here, since our coffees are all of astounding quality and the origin’s delicate acidity and florals are preserved.
All our coffee is roasted to order.
Each order is hand-roasted according to profiles we have crafted for each batch of coffee. It’s sent to you with the roast date written on the pack and should be consumed within a maximum of 4 weeks from this date.
Freshly and efficiently delivered.
Rather than hiding delivery fees within the price, delivery is charged at a flat fee of £2, although offered free for subscriptions and orders over £15. Most orders are sent in 200g boxes which conform to the Royal Mail Large Letter spec. This minimises cost, materials, and environmental footprint.
We will strive to keep lowering costs.
In spite of raw coffee prices surging around 15% in the last year, we also structure our pricing using thin margins. We pass on the savings to you whilst retaining the highest standards in quality and ensuring our sourcing meets Fairtrade standards or better.
We only sell what we drink ourselves!
This is a labour of love, after all.
