  • Tastes Like

    Add a taste of the tropical to your mug with this zesty limited-edition coffee. The chocolatey body starts things off on a familiar note but then – zing! – taste those lemon and lime flavours! And then – aloha! – tangy-sweet passionfruit with whispers of blackcurrant… Bright, zesty and delicious!

  • How to Brew

    While this coffee tastes awesome in every device, our favourites are an espresso machine, Aeropress & moka pot.

    Head over to our brew guides for making coffee for more.

  • Limited edition

    All of our coffees come to us from small farms and estates. This means that when a coffee has been harvested, processed and drunk, it has gone for good.

    With our other coffees, we aim to swap coffee every 8-12 months. With this limited edition, this will change more frequently, most likely every 3-4 months.  The coffees available as limited editions will be interesting and diverse in flavour to each other and will not necessarily follow a pattern of flavour.

    If you are looking to try new coffees every few months or so, then this could be for you.

  • Behind the Scenes

    We source this tropical-tasting coffee from the Tinganga Estate in Kiambu, southern Kenya. Tinganga is a 182 hectare coffee farm owned by a fab publicly held company called Sasini. Sasini are all about fairness and community. Alongside providing union membership and accommodation for employees, they invest in primary education and school supplies. They have, for instance, collaborated with our speciality importer to provide new IT supplies to the Njenga Karume primary school. Top marks!

    You’ll find Kiambu located just a stone’s throw from Nairobi, the Kenyan capital. It boasts a long history of coffee production. Since decolonisation, local Kenyans have owned and managed most of Kiambu’s coffee estates. Despite falling coffee estate numbers in recent years (land prices are going up, up, up…), the Sasini Estate is still going strong and producing stellar lots!

    Kiambu conditions are a recipe for arabica awesomeness – it is close to the equator, sports semi-volcanic soil rich in iron and offers lots of cheery sunshine!

  • Scores on the Doors

    To determine the quality score of a coffee, a process known as cupping is used. Trained tasters known as Q graders will taste the coffee and score it dependant on a number of factors. A score of 80 points or higher is required to gain a speciality title. If it scores lower, it doesn’t make the grade. Fancy giving it a go? Read our guide about coffee cupping to learn more.

  • Roasting

    When we roast our coffees, we like to bring out and enhance their natural, amazing flavours. We don’t over roast any of our coffees, so we avoid any burnt or bitter tastes. The coffees that we roast are full of many natural flavours, it would be a shame to mask these or turn them into bitterness.

    Some of our coffees will be very sweet and creamy, and others will be delicate and almost tea-like. We are thankful for the hard work and care that the coffee farmers put into growing these beans and want to do them proud when we roast their beans. We always aim to find a great selection of coffees and flavours that stand out from the rest.

  • Why buy speciality coffee from us?

    The coffees that we choose are ethically sourced from small farms or single estates around the world. We purchase the best coffee and pay much more than the going rate price to the farmers – so when you buy coffee from us, you are in turn, helping the farmers. In fact, we pay between 30 and 150% more than the ‘going rate’ for coffee beans. This supports the farmers in their crop, their development and also ensures they have sufficient living conditions for them and their families.

    We also keep the chain between the farmers and us as short as possible. A shorter chain means more of the money will make it to the farmer and their workers to spend on next years crops. So, all in all, buying one bag of coffee can make such a difference – thank you!

  • Where does the name come from?

    I’m hard at work, typing away.

    🦅 Oh look… a pigeon.

    No, back to the keyboard.

     

    🎶 Ahhh, my fave song is on the radio!

    Nope, come on, keep typing.

     

    ☕ Freshly brewed coffee?

    Yes please! That’s one worthy distraction!

I bought some two chimps coffee from a local deli and was impressed. I followed that by buying a couple of 50g sample packs which were delivered a few hours later. I live locally and requested delivery by post due to my work commitments and I guess the two chimps team found the time to pop them round. Can’t complain about the service! So I’ve tried 3 different roasts and like them all. This is the only coffee I’ve drunk outside of Melbourne Australia that has no bitterness at all - they are all really smooth. I’ll definitely be buying more.

The coffee blending experience was a great way to spend a Sunday morning. Very enlightening, good fun, and the coffee is genuinely excellent. Andy and Laura's passion for their business and their product comes shining through - clearly a business that prioritises substance over style, but manages to do pretty well as far as the latter is concerned in any case!

Did the Barista Basics workshop, absolutely loved it! Andy was very welcoming and so informative, he really knows his stuff and is a great teacher. After demonstrations we were let loose to have a go with the machines ourselves, with some very drinkable results. Thanks Andy! :)

First tried this coffee when visiting relatives in Rutland. Self catering cottage supplied the coffee and when back home decided to order some. The coffees are lovely and we like the different varieties. I buy decaf on subscription and like to look out for new coffees to try. The delivery and service is excellent and I would highly recommend.

This was bought for us as a Christmas gift, so we weren't totally sure what to expect. We were made very welcome, and there was a huge amount of information. Great tasting of 5 very different coffees, and a chance to make your own blend from these 5 different beans. Easy place to find, ample opportunity to ask questions, very knowledgeable 'Two Chimps' !!

First and foremost, the coffee is excellent: varied, well chosen and with accurate tasting notes. I have found the subscription service to be reliable and good valuable - the coffee arrives fresh and undamaged, without over packaging and is packaged in such always as to be delivered through the letterbox. The website is a pleasure to use, and in addition to the coffee, there is a wide range of coffee making apparatus and consumables such as filters for V60 and Chemex. These are reasonably priced and always dispatched promptly. Finally, there is a knowledgeable human at the end of the phone should you have a question.

I look forward every week to receiving my lovely freshly roasted coffee beans and their quirky names always make me smile! The service is superb and speedy, nothing is ever a problem. I bought an Aeropress coffee maker for a Christmas present and had great advice from Laura. I would (and do) highly recommend them.

Where have you been all my life?!I can only drink decaf, and I drink it black, so it's got to be great coffee. Until now, I've never found one that doesn't have any bitterness or is weirdly weak. The "how many llamas ... " coffee is truly outstanding! Smooth, full of flavour, and sets my day up just nicely, thank you very much.Thank you Two Chimps. Great mornings are finally here.

I was really delighted with my Christmas hamper from ActionCOACH Oakham. Even more delighted that it contained your coffee. I like to seek out independent coffee roasters and I will be definitely be buying more - it was delicious!

Getting decent coffee is a pain, well at least it was. I discovered two chimps through a friend and I don’t regret it. They provide high quality coffee delivered to my door and there is always a different one to try. A lot of single origin coffees which all have different flavours, their coffee is ethically sourced. No query is too much trouble and their website is easy to use. However they don’t just do coffee but their hot chocolate is good, as are their teas. Mint tea with hot choc is fab I haven’t been allowed to try marmite hot choc. Free delivery is included what more could you wish for. My only complaint is I sometimes run out at the end of the month, perhaps I should order more ?, the ability to order 300g bags? Just a great local family business with excellent customer service.
