  • Tastes Like

    Imagine tangy-tart baked Bramley apple topping a slice of malt loaf, sticky with raisins and dark brown sugar. Then add a little sunny-bright orange zest to finish…
    Oh, wait, you don’t need to imagine… that’s just what this coffee tastes like! Dive in!

  • How to Brew

    While this coffee tastes awesome in every device, our favourites are a filter or cafetiere.

  • Behind the Scenes

    Julio and Octavio Peralta grow this awesome coffee on El Bosque, their family farm. El Bosque is something of a hidden gem. Snuggled away in the dense green forests of San Fernando, in the Nueva Segovia region, it enjoys top-notch coffee growing conditions. Coffee has been in the Peralta family since the early 1900s, and in 2008 they started experimenting with pioneering new methods. These are coffees you don’t want to miss!
    Nicaragua grows some stellar coffees today, but harvests haven’t always been easy. Political disturbances meant that coffee growers had a difficult time in the late 90s, and a drought at the turn of the millennium presented further challenges.
    Nicaragua’s farmers persevered, however, and have gone from strength to strength in recent years. They place an exceptional focus on quality and maintain very high levels of traceability. Their coffees tend to showcase fruit flavours and treat us to a clean, complex acidity.
    And it gets better! Because the Nueva Segovia region, where this coffee is grown, is deemed one of the country’s best! Awesome!

  • Scores on the Doors

    To gain Speciality Coffee status, the coffee has to receive a score of 80 points or higher. The points are made up using an array of attributes such as the smell, acidity, and mouthfeel to name a few. To taste all of these attributes, Q graders use a coffee cupping process; a pure and exact method to taste coffees.

    Intrigued about coffee cupping and want to find out more? Check out our guide to Cup like a pro. you can even give it a go at home.

    When we receive our coffee beans, they are green and unroasted. We ensure that the roastery’s moisture and humidity are optimised to keep the beans at their very best.

    To roast, we build a profile for each coffee to bring out the beans’ natural flavours. We never over roast, and so you will never taste bitter or burnt flavours in the cup. Only sweet, smooth and creamy notes prevail.

  • Roasting

    Speciality coffees are bursting with amazing natural flavours, aromas and body. Each bean is different from the next; not only in taste but also in moisture, density and size. With this in mind, we roast each coffee differently to suit all of the above.

    We build a roast profile (recipe) for each coffee and we roast by hand and in small batches to bring out the very best in each bean. We freshly roast multiple times each week to ensure you receive the best and freshest coffee each time.

    The coffee farmers do us proud with their amazing harvests, and we want to continue their amazing work when roasting.

  • The Decaffeination Process

    In 1967, Kurt Zosel investigated new ways to separate mixtures of substances. From this initial research, the sparkling water techniques that are now used were born. They have been used to decaffeinate coffee since 1988.

    This natural and pure process uses naturally occurring carbon dioxide combined with water to create a subcritical condition. While doing so, the conditions create a solvent substance for caffeine in coffee.

    The carbon dioxide gently draws the caffeine molecules away from the beans, and the process is continued repetitively until the beans can be classed as caffeine-free. This process is gentle on the coffee to not take away the natural flavours and aroma of the beans. It’s organically certified too.

  • Why buy speciality coffee from us?

    The coffee farmers produce amazing coffees, and they deserve thanking for that. To ensure that they get the price they deserve; and money to spend on investing in their farm for the future, we pay between 30 and 150% more than the going rate for speciality coffee than that of commodity coffee.

    Without you drinking our freshly roasted coffee, we couldn’t do this. So it’s all down to you lovely peeps – high five!

  • Where does the name come from?

    Where does the name come from?
    Nellie’s not keen on caffeine today. In fact, she doesn’t even want to hear the word. Time to get those earmuffs out…
    Oh, wait, she doesn’t need to. Because she’s found an awesome, Sparkling Water Process decaf instead! Sorted!

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.
