  • Tastes Like

    Here’s a coffee that’ll take you on a journey. Start with full-bodied notes of creamy chocolate (oooh…), then get a little zing of citrus (oh my!). And then, what’s that? Red berry sweetness? Heaven.

     

  • How to Brew

    While this coffee tastes awesome in every device, our favourites are an espresso machine, Aeropress & moka pot.

  • Behind the Scenes

    This high-scoring speciality coffee is grown by small holder farmers in the Huila region of Columbia.

    Huila is a top-class coffee growing region. It was the first department in Colombia to start coffee production, did you know? Today, it’s known for its pioneering community of farmers and awesome coffee growing conditions. High altitudes? Check. Mountainous landscape? Check? And mineral-rich soil the arabica trees love? That’s another big ‘check’ right there!

    These conditions all combine to give us a stella coffee with the perfect balance of acidity and sweetness.

    Washed is the processing method for this scrummy coffee. The main difference between natural and washed processing is that water is involved with washed (surprise surprise). Also, the washed method separates the bean from its outer layers before (rather than after) laying it out to dry.

  • Scores on the Doors

    Cupping is the process used to find the ‘quality’ score of a coffee. Because we only source and roast speciality coffee, it must get a score of 80 points or higher to be granted speciality status. If it doesn’t get this score, it’s not good enough for us. To find out more about cupping, take a look at our step by step guide to coffee cupping at home.

  • Roasting

    When roasting, we never ‘over roast’ any of our coffees, simply because we don’t need to. The process of roasting is a great way to highlight some of the natural flavours and aromas of the coffee. Roasting a coffee too dark can result in these flavours being hidden and, instead, can produce a bitter and burnt coffee. The coffee we source is of very high quality. This allows us to bring out the flavours when roasting, rather than trying to hide them. Instead of having a burnt or bitter taste, our coffees have a natural sweetness.

    Every coffee we hand roast is completely unique. Some coffees we roast have lighter notes, like citrus fruit, whilst others have a slightly darker note of chocolate or nut for example. We source our coffee from small farms and cooperatives around the world. These farmers and their workers work incredibly hard to produce an excellent product. We feel it’s only fair that we produce an equally amazing product.

  • Why buy speciality coffee from us?

    You might not realise it, but by purchasing speciality coffee from us, you are supporting farmers across the globe. We pay between 30 and 150% more than the ‘going rate’ for our green coffee. This way, the farmers are paid more for their crops. This gives the opportunity for better living conditions, and revenue to invest into a great harvest, year after year.

    We like to keep the supply chain short. With less in the chain, we can be sure that more makes it back to the farm and its workers.

    It’s people like you who are helping to make a difference. Well done.

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.
