How to choose the best coffee for you

With so many coffees available, how do you know which is the best coffee for you?

Jump straight in ?

What will you like? How much do you need to order and how many cups of coffee will you get from a bag?

These are just a few of the questions you may have when deciding upon the best coffee for you.

Fear not. We are here to help in your quest. We have put together this guide of three simple options, all of which can help you choose the best coffee!

Coffee Wizard

Ask our wizard.

Firstly, let us introduce you to our coffee wizard. This simple to use wizard will help you in your quest for coffee by asking just four questions.
Our wizard can be found here or at the bottom of the home page. ‘Ready for Greatness?’ Click: ‘Let’s Go!’

First question:

The first question the wizard will ask is ‘What time of day do you normally drink your coffee?’

All our coffees have been crafted with particular times of the day in mind; morning, daytime and evening.

For example, our current Colombian coffee has a dark fruit punch, making this ideal for the mornings when you do need coffee to punch you in the face. Next up, our El Salvadorian coffee ‘The Tiny Horse’ has a moreish biscuit sweetness making it a great coffee to drink all day. Finally, our decaffeinated coffee is perfect for the evenings, especially if caffeine stops you from sleeping.

Second Question:

What do you like to make your coffee with?

We like to know this so the wizard can recommend a coffee to suit.

For instance, we wouldn’t necessarily recommend a bright, acidic coffee for an espresso machine. Why? We feel the pressure needed to create an espresso will heighten the acidity too much, often making it taste a little sour.

Instead, the wizard would recommend something roasted a little differently.

Third Question:

Would you like coffee ground for your chosen device or whole bean coffee?

Here at Two Chimps Coffee, we offer a completely bespoke service. Offering whole bean or one type of grind size for ground coffee alone just isn’t cricket.

We grind your coffee to match your particular brewing device, chosen above. Alternatively, we leave it in whole bean; the choice is yours. We have five grind sizes available, to match the five brewing methods above.
Cafetiere, Pour Over (Filter), Stovetop, Espresso Machine or Aeropress.

Fourth Question:

How often do you drink coffee?

This is the last question the wizard will ask.
With this information, the wizard will know the right frequency for delivery, along with the correct amount of coffee required.

That’s it. All done. Just like that. The magical coffee wizard will suggest a coffee subscription based on your answers.

It will even calculate how often you need a coffee delivery. Magic.

Not what you’re after?

Never fear, you can scroll down to see the complete range too.

We have six single origin coffees to choose from, along with our mystery subscription.

Some of our coffees have been roasted lighter and have fruity notes with a bright acidity, while others are roasted slightly darker and have more chocolatey, often nutty notes.
