  • Behind the Scenes

    Hey, coffeeholics! Let’s hop over to the Fazenda Santa Hedwirges in Sul de Minas, Brazil. Fourth-generation coffee farmer Hugo Brito currently heads up this large coffee farm. The Brito family have grown speciality coffee here for nearly 100 years. At present, they grow Yellow Catuai, Red Catuai, Arara, Rubi, Mundo Novo and Topázio varietals. Wondering what your Baboon in an Air Balloon coffee is? It’s a Topázio, the varietal developed in 1960s Brazil!

    Hugo Brito is making Fazenda Santa Hedwirges coffees even better with snazzily advanced technologies. The team recently spent four years researching new drying methods. They settled on a static box approach that allows them to dry the coffee in a slow, carefully controlled manner and turn it daily. They manage the system via computer programs for super-duper exact attention to detail.

    This scrummy lot spent 19 days on the drying patio, which is a tad longer than Brazil’s usual 7-10 days. This is exciting! The extended drying time permits a few more days of fermentation and a fuller fruit flavour. A first-class ticket to coffee captivation? You bet!

  • What does the score mean?

    For a coffee to make the grade as speciality, it must gain a ‘quality’ score. Q Graders use a process known as ‘cupping’ to find this score. If the graders give a coffee less than 80 points, it’ll be marked as ‘commodity’ rather than ‘speciality’.

    Graders score the coffee on a wide number of factors such as mouthfeel, taste and balance. Never heard of cupping before? We’ve written a page all about it. Head over now to become a coffee cupping clever clogs!

  • Roasting

    We are proud to say that we never over roast our coffee. Never ever.

    We use the roasting process to show off all the natural flavours and aromas within our green coffee beans. Over roasting, which often occurs with commodity coffee, masks all these lovely flavours with a bitter, burnt-tasting edge. Using high-quality, perfectly ripe beans means there’s nothing bad for us to hide in the first place – these beans are full of good stuff! Our job is to create bespoke roasting recipes which put all that luscious flavour and natural sweetness centre stage.

    The coffee farmers from across the globe put everything into producing an outstanding product for us. It’s only fair we do the same for you, right?

    As we source our coffees from small farms and cooperatives, all our coffees are wonderfully unique. Some are creamy and full-bodied, some more fruity and light, perhaps with hints of berry. Ooooh, how to decide?

     

  • Why buy speciality coffee from us?

    Enjoy a fresh cup of Two Chimps coffee, and you are supporting coffee farmers and workers from across the globe. We always pay between 30 and 150% more than the ‘going rate’ for our green coffee (them’s the unroasted beans). In doing so, we’re helping to make sure the farmers receive more for their crops. This opens the opportunity for better living conditions, plus funds to invest in an even better harvest next year.

    For us, keeping the supply chain short is very important. Shorter chains mean more goes back to the workers and their farmers.

    Keep doing what you’re doing, coffee lover. You really are awesome.

  • Where does the name come from?

    Take a sip of freshly roasted coffee and it’ll sweep you off your feet…

    To a place where skunks do the salsa and cats eat cupcakes…. And you see baboons in balloons! 🙉

    Have tried a few excellent varieties of coffee from Two Chimps but for me Baboon in an Air Balloon is the best. I ordered a second bag after just 1 cup!

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.

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.
