Behind the Scenes
Behind the scenes
This utterly phenomenal coffee grows on the Kateshi Coffee Estate in The Northern Province of Zambia. The Kateshi Estate opened in 1972 as one of Zambia’s first coffee-cultivating estates. At the time, it was home to the main mill for all coffee grown in the region. And it’s gone from strength to strength since then; its natural and honey processed coffees won first and second place respectively Zambia’s annual Taste of Harvest competition. Top marks!
Community is at the heart of the Kateshi Estate. It was the first Zambian coffee estate to employ women for male-dominated roles such as driving tractors and bulldozers. It is also home to a health clinic that provides essential, free healthcare to over 4000 local residents. It’s got a football team, too: the Kateshi Coffee Bullets!
You’ll find Zambia’s Northern Province bordering Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. With its proximity to the equator and lovely, high altitudes, the area offers some of Zambia’s best coffee-growing conditions. Top marks, again! Coffee is the region’s main produce, followed by crops like maize, millet, groundnuts and beans.
Here at Two Chimps, our main coffees stay with us for around 8 – 12 months. Our limited edition coffees however, change more frequently. We source our coffees from small farms, cooperatives and single estates, meaning when a coffee has been harvested, processed and drunk, it is all gone. Our limited edition coffees will change every 3 – 4 months and are a great way of trying new and interesting coffees more frequently. They won’t follow a pattern of particular flavours or characteristics, but we can guarantee they will all be super interesting and tasty!
Scores on the Doors
Speciality coffee is scored and graded by a process known as coffee cupping. It must receive a quality score of 80 points or higher to receive this prestigious title. Each coffee is rated on lots of elements such as taste, smell and mouthfeel. The scorers, known as Q Graders are people who are fully trained and qualified to score coffees. If you’d like to know more about cupping coffee or to have a go yourself, browse our guide, cupping like a pro.
We hand roast all of our coffees to bring out the most from each bean. We keep our roasts lighter too; to avoid any bitter or burnt notes. This way, you get to taste every flavour and characteristic of each coffee that the farmers worked so hard to produce. Lower grades of coffee will play host to undesirable flavours within the beans, resulting in a darker roast to mask these, but leaving a bitter taste. Luckily for you, we don’t need to do this. All of our coffees are smooth and sweet with natural flavours throughout.

Why buy speciality coffee from us?
When you purchase a bag of Two Chimps Coffee, you are supporting the hard-working farmers who grow and harvest these amazing coffees.
We pay between 30 and 150% more for our coffee than the commodity-grade price. This, in turn, means more for the farmers, giving them capital to invest in better living conditions and an even better crop next year.
Keeping the supply chain as short as possible allows more money to make it to the farm and it’s workers. So from the team here at Two Chimps – high five and thank you!
