  • Tastes Like

    Who stole the tarts? This coffee did. It’s sweet like jam tarts full to the brim with strawberry jam. We’re tasting the vanilla warmth of toasted marshmallow, too.

  • 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’s gone for good. Our other coffees change every 8-12 months, while our limited editions change more frequently, most likely every 3-4 months.  The coffees available as limited editions will be interesting and diverse and will not necessarily follow a pattern of flavour. If you are looking to try unique new coffees every few months, then this could be for you!

  • Behind the Scenes

    The country of Kiambu is located just a stone’s throw from Nairobi, the Kenyan capital. It boasts a long history of coffee production thanks to its mineral-rich volcanic soil.
    However, Kiambu speciality coffee estates are disappearing. Rising land value and urban expansion from Nairobi mean speciality estates are having to close their doors. But the Sasini Estate is still going strong – whoop whoop! The farmers’ top-notch local knowledge and breadth of experience mean they harvest exceptional coffees time and again. And here’s some just for you!
    See how this coffee is processed by the Natural Method? That’s pretty exclusive for a Kenyan coffee (washed processing is the usual Kenyan way). Natural processing allows a little fermentation to take place in the beans, creating a standout cup with a heavier body and sweet, fruity profile.
    The Sasini Estate handpick their lovely coffee beans before drying them in the sun on raised beds. They get the A-list treatment, as expert producers regularly turn the sunbathing beans and cover them at night to protect against moisture damage.

  • Scores on the Doors

    A process known as cupping is used to find the quality score of coffee. This quality score will determine if a coffee can be granted the title of speciality coffee. A target score of 80 or above is set for a coffee to be given this title. If it scores lower, it doesn’t reach the grade. Read our cupping page to find out more about what coffee cupping is.

  • Roasting

    None of our coffees will ever be ‘over roasted’. The time a coffee spends within the roaster is our opportunity to show off its natural flavours and aromas. If we were to roast a coffee too dark, the natural flavours would be lost and would be replaced with burnt and bitter notes in your cup. As the coffee we source and roast is such a high grade, we won’t ever need to hide the flavours as they are all awesome!

    Our coffees are all unique in their own beautiful way with a never-ending combination of flavours. For instance, some of our coffees will be full of chocolatey notes, some will be packed full of fruity notes and others will have something in between. The incredibly hard-working coffee farmers put everything into nurturing and harvesting their coffees. We aim to do them justice.

  • Why buy speciality coffee from us?

    By purchasing coffee from us you’re making a huge difference to the coffee farmer whom we purchase our coffee from. We want to give coffee farmers the opportunity of an even better harvest next year, not to mention better living conditions. With this in mind, we always pay between 30 and 150% more than the ‘going rate’ for our beans.

    To support the farmers further, we keep our supply chain as short as possible. This allows more of the money spent on their crop to return back to the farmer and their workers.

    So from all the farmers and us, thank you.

  • Where does the name come from?

    Money doesn’t grow on trees. Pomegranates do (fun fact)… and so does glitter! They’re called Sparklerellus Arbor trees, and we’re off to plant one now.

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.
