coffee

"As dark as the devil, as hot as hell, as pure as an angel and as sweet as love"

We've been roasting the world's best coffee in our 2kg San Franciscan roaster since 1994, resisting the temptation and logic of roasting on a more commercial scale, to stand by the philosophy that we can bring out the best in any coffee working this way. To give some context, each batch produces just enough for 8 supermarket size packets. Often, one roast is taken entirely by one customer!

We believe we have curated the largest range under one roof, offering some of the rarest and most prestigious beans from every country that grows high-quality coffee.

The best tip we can offer to enhance your enjoyment of any coffee you try is to suggest that you grind your own beans freshly as required.

    This coffee is produced from bushes transplanted from the famous Blue Mountains of Jamaica. As such it is a very refined, smooth coffee with complex aromatics that include cedar, ginger, spice, nutmeg and chocolate. It is more full-bodied than its prestigious cousin and offers up a very syrupy quality in the cup. The mountainous, moist cultivation area has loamy soil and a variety of native shade trees. Korofeigu Farmer's Cooperative Society is located in the Bena Bena valley of the Eastern Highlands between Goroka to the west and Henganofi to the east. The Coop is comprised of 97 members (some of whom are seen above near a nursery), with a total cultivation area of 112 hectares.

    When sourcing coffee from Peru we look for coffee that can deliver a complex array of flavours. Typically we would hope to find notes of cream, caramel, lemon zest, marzipan, dark chocolate, pineapple, lemon, lime, pomegranate, bergamot, nutmeg, blackcurrant, raspberry, cherry, cane sugar and cocoa. We buy from different producers in Peru depending on quality and availability. They are all from worker's co-operatives and where organic, sustainable farming methods are used. In fact, that is quite easy as I am yet to see an offer of coffee from Peru that is not produced in this way. Recently we have been supporting the Cafe Femenino project.

    As with other fine African coffees, the coffee taster's lexicon is put to good use in describing the character. Notes of blackberry, baking spices, caramel, cranberry, raisins, berries, citrus, cream, lemon, strawberry, grapefruit, floral, cherry, vanilla, caramel, tangy orange, berry jam, lavender, honey, sweet black cherry and figs are described. Rwandan coffee is not mass produced as we know it in the west. It is known as the land of a thousand hills. Many farmers grow their produce on hillsides and within lush, untamed valleys on very smallholdings.

    Our most caffeine laden bean, roasted in the inferno of hell. It's a real wake me up call that will invigorate or derange you. Don't say we didn't warn you! Made with the same highest quality Robusta coffee as our Vietnam Dragon Balls but given a slightly darker roast. This enhances the bittersweet dark chocolate, malty character whilst losing some of the herbal and fruity notes.
  10. As low as £7.00
    This special, premium robusta type coffee has a super thick liquor, dark chocolate body and flavour plus more than average caffeine! It has almost twice as much caffeine as the Arabica variety. Enjoyable in its pure form and useful to add a kick to your favourite espresso blend. Whilst Robusta coffees are not generally renowned for their fine flavour this treasure from Vietnam is a noticeable exception. It is particularly delicious when made with condensed milk. Our customers have really taken to this coffee and it is now among our most popular. It certainly lives up to its name! Artisan roasted in our 2kg micro-roaster.
  11. As low as £10.00
    This blend is adjusted to maintain a constant character according to availability.

Although often firstly bought for its name, it becomes the once bitten forever smitten favourite of those that drink it!

    Yemeni coffee at its best has a very rare and wild character, with a heavy body, chocolate-like flavour and exotic wine-like aroma. Each year the Rayyan mill offers Zamarrud Al-Yemen (The Emeralds of Yemen). It is composed of the best-tasting coffees from several growing regions in Yemen and offers the true 'Mocha' character. This careful selection is the reason that a batch earned Coffee Review's highest score ever of 97. Aromatic and flavour notes reveal this coffee's complexity: Cocoa, muscatel grape, mango, dried berries, candied fruit, tangerine, peach, strawberry jam, plum wine, cherry, maple syrup, coconut, marmalade, honeysuckle and sweet waffles.
