Behind the Scenes
Today we’re heading to Brazil to the farms of Jordana Tacila Almeida Conti and Vivian Gonçalves De Freitas Campos Borges, two amazing women growing coffee in the storied Cerrado Mineiro region. The Catuaí varietal benefits massively from Cerrado Mineiro’s mineral-rich soil and steady climate. Combined, they give coffee from this region one second-to-none, utterly (but not butterly) unique identity!
Best of all, this coffee is part of the Café Delas Programme. Every Café Delas coffee is sourced from skilled women farmers. A portion of every sale is reinvested in programmes promoting gender equality and female empowerment. Tasty coffee that makes the world a better place. What more could you want?? (Ethical biscuits notwithstanding).
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!

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?
Our Great Auntie Mary very kindly gifted us our very first paper tape machine, (thanks auntie for helping us be green), and therefore she deserves the coffee to be named after her. Plus, she has a canary. Doesn’t every Auntie Mary?
