Apple and raisin flavours remind us of crumble, while those hints of toffee call up sweet shop treats. And the smooth chocolatey body? It’s like the best sort of hug you can imagine…

Behind the Scenes
This head-turning coffee is grown on the Fazenda Recreio. You’ll find this high-achieving coffee farm located in São Sebastião da Grama, a tiny city in the Brazilian state of São Paulo. This small city, and indeed the Fazenda Recreio, played a key part in the speciality coffee movement in Brazil.
The farm has been in the Dias family since 1890 and is currently headed by Diogo Dias Teixeira de Macedo. Mr Diogo Dias began his Fazenda Recreio career in 2000 and takes a unique approach combining tradition with top-class innovation. The result? Truly exceptional coffees every time. His skill is continually recognised in national and international contests, and the farm has scooped seven victories in different Cup of Excellence competitions.
Fazenda Recreio maintains 68 fully-furnished houses for its workers. These ‘colônias’ were common in the latter half of the 19th century but are relatively rare nowadays. Just another way Fazenda Recreio is staying on top of its coffee game.
Scores on the Doors
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!

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.
