Facts

  • Tastes Like

    Put a spring in your step with the freshness of strawberry and apple fizz. Team this with frangipane-like notes of almond (plus little tickles of chocolate), and you’ve got a bright coffee for your cup!

  • How to Brew

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

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

  • Limited Edition

    Here at Two Chimps Coffee, we source from small farms, cooperatives and estates. We’re proud to source seasonally – this means lots of fresh coffee and an ever-changing selection! Our main coffees change every 8-12 months, while our limited edition coffees change more frequently (most likely every 3-4 months).

    What sets our limited editions apart? They are that little bit more interesting and diverse, and will not necessarily follow a pattern of characteristics. If you are looking to try captivating new coffees every few months, then our limited editions are for you! Dive in!

  • Behind the Scenes

    We sourced this crazily delicious microlot coffee from the Sampieri and Zilli family farms in Huatusco de Chicuellar. This central highlands city is located in Veracruz in eastern Mexico. Fun fact: Veracruz is where farmers first planted coffee when it came to Mexico from the Caribbean! Coffee growing is a major part of the culture here. Visit at the end of the harvest and you’ll find locals celebrating La Viuda Del Café, or the ‘Coffee’s Widow’ festival. This festival gets its name from the lonely coffee plants after the harvest. They’re said to be in mourning until ‘courted’ again next year. Bless em’!

    This limited-edition coffee is extra special. Why? Because its washed processing involved a starter culture. Generally, the complex coffee fermentation process only uses compounds already in the coffee. In this lot, however, the processing team added a specifically created starter culture to the fermentation tank, and made the fermentation time two-to-three times longer than usual. The cool combo of starter culture and extended fermentation brings out valuable volatiles (alcohols, esters and the like) and enhances the fruity sweetness of the coffee. Gives one bangin’ aroma, too!

    The proof is in the pudding, as they say. This snazzy new method increased the SCA cup score by almost 3 points! And that’s BIG news!

  • What does the score mean?

    Every coffee has a score. If it’s below 80 points, the coffee is commodity. If it’s super-delicious, free from defects and scored 80 points or above, it’s speciality coffee!

    Speciality coffee is better all round: acidity, balance, mouthfeel, aroma… Speciality coffee ticks all the boxes!

    But, watch out. Don’t choose your coffee based purely on the score! A higher score might denote a more experimental coffee, or one with a very interesting lemony flavour, for example. This doesn’t mean you’ll like the flavour more than one that scored a little lower. Go with your gut – you know what you enjoy most!

    Our awesome TC coffees all sit in the scrummy 80-90 region. We tend not to go for anything in the high 90s, as scores this high sometimes indicate an exceptionally rare coffee rather than one we think you’ll love! We always keep your cup in mind when selecting our coffee range!

  • Roasting

    Every coffee that comes through the Two Chimps doors is different. They all have their own characteristics: some are chocolatey, some are more acidic, some are fruity… The coffee farmers work hard to produce these stellar beans, and we want to complement their awesome green beans when we roast.

    We always roast with the beans’ natural flavours in mind. We never over-roast any coffee (so you won’t get the burnt bitterness you sometimes get with instant granules). Instead, we keep our roasts light to showcase all the gorgeous flavours in these high-quality beans. No over-roasting at Two Chimps Coffee – only smooth and sweet coffees here!

  • Why buy speciality coffee from us?

    When you buy speciality coffee from us, you support workers and farmers in your coffee’s country of origin.

    We make sure that we pay between 30 and 150% more for our speciality coffee than the going rate for commodity coffee. This ensures the farmers are paid more for their crop and, therefore, have the opportunity to invest in better living conditions and more resources. The result? Better harvests, year on year.

    We like to keep the supply chain as short as possible when sourcing. A shorter chain means more money will make it back to the farm.

    So from all of us at Two Chimps Coffee, thank you! Thank you for helping us make a difference.

  • Where does the name come from?

    Felix was the third chimp, so Andy and Laura’s new baby (congrats, guys!), is the fourth.

    Welcome to the world, Autumn! 😊 Or, should we say, Autumn the Fourth! 👑

    Can’t recommend two chimps coffee enough, found them at a local food market giving out free samples and it was the most amazing coffee I’d ever tasted and I’ve been hooked ever since, that was about 4-5 years ago, maybe even longer, their service is amazing and their coffee is genuinely some of the best around, great company and ethos, I dread to think how many bags of coffee I’ve had from them but every single one has been delicious and they make great gifts too.If you want great coffee and want to get your great coffee from people with a real passion for coffee then Two Chimps are the people to speak to.Their packaging is also 100% recyclable which is nice and shows they care.Keep up the good work guys.

    I love Two Chimps coffee, and I love the way the company works. The small team are friendly and responsive and fun. They added special notes to my delivery on request, to make sure my crazy dogs don’t get a chance to attack the package!The coffee is excellent quality, e.g. hand-picked instead of machine picked (to avoid under or overripe beans that make the coffee sour or bitter). This means I actually save money, as I’ll make myself a good quality cup and take it with me, instead of risking a bitter or sour takeaway from a café where I don’t know if the barrista is skilled or not.Plus, using my home Stovetop moka pot is a great way to get away from my desk and focus on something non work for 5 minutes…and the kitchen is filled with a satisfying coffee smell. Making a quality coffee is also a way that I can just demonstrate some everyday love for my partner.

    Have been a customer at Two Chimps Coffee for two years now and I have never been disappointed. Every now and then, we get to try different coffees and switch things around. Love the little surprises they send sometimes as well! Overall a very pleasant experience.

    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.
