Behind the Scenes
Back to us for its second year, we love this coffee from Jabiru. Grown by smallholders with around one hectare of land each, some of Guatemala’s best coffees come from this area of Huehuetenango. Why?
The north-facing aspect of the mountains allows the sun to take its time reaching the growing plots, which helps create a sweeter, rounder & fuller tasting coffee in the cup.
Coffee from Jabiru is fully processed by the smaller holders growing the crop. It is always washed and then sundried as the smallholders don’t have access to mechanical dryers. However, due to the mountain surroundings, they also don’t have that much flat area available. Every option is used, including rooftops and patio areas. The coffee is also turned regularly to ensure that there is no overfermentation.
What does the score mean?
We only source and roast speciality coffee here at Two Chimps. Cupping is the snazzy process that decides if a coffee will become speciality. It determines the coffee’s score, and the coffee makes the cut as speciality if this score is 80 plus. If the score is below 80, it won’t get the ‘speciality’ title (it’ll be commodity instead). Professional Q Graders score each coffee on factors such as taste, aroma, mouthfeel and more.
Take a look at our page all about coffee cupping for more information.
Here at Two Chimps, we hand roast your coffee with love, care and obsessive detail. We never over roast for the simple reason that we don’t need to. Every coffee we source is high quality and naturally sweet, and we use the roasting process to highlight these flavours. Commodity roasters, meanwhile, often overroast to mask the ‘off’ taste in their low-grade beans. The result? Bitter-tasting coffee you don’t enjoy drinking.
So brew the coffee you deserve – naturally sweet, impeccably roasted coffee from Two Chimps!
Why buy speciality coffee from us?
No matter how much or how often you purchase freshly roasted coffee from us, you are helping coffee farmers around the globe. Wow… bold claim.
But one that’s absolutely true. Here at Two Chimps, we always pay between 30 and 150% more than the ‘going rate’ for our green coffee beans. This is considerably more than the Fairtrade minimum. Because we pay more, more gets back to the farmer and this, in turn, means the farmer can invest and improve year after year.
What’s more, working with ethical coffee importers allows us to keep the supply chain as short as possible. This way, we can make sure a higher percentage of the payment makes it to the farm and its workers. Because coffee can be tasty, but it’s got to be kind.
Where does the name come from?
As part of our carbon-reducing plan, our head roaster, Andy has bought a bike to get to work on.
It’s taken him so long to choose the right colour, he could have knitted it himself! ????
