Tropical limeade? Check. Sweet grilled peach? Check. Waves of strawberry? Check. A spatula-brandishing, probably apron-wearing father bossing it on the BBQ? Cheeeck.
Here it is – an explosively flavourful coffee for your king-of-the-grill Dad!
How to Brew
Ah-may-zing in every device, but especially suited to a filter, Chemex or cafetiere.
If you want to know more, see our brew guides for making coffee.
Whether you’re looking to experiment or just fancy something different, limited-edition coffees are the ones for you!
Our limited editions are utterly tantalising and a tad more eccentric. They will often be the exciting results of new coffee experiments or avant-garde coffee trials. Eeeee-xciting!
We source all our coffees from small farms, so when they’re gone, they’re gone. Our regular coffee line-up changes around once a year, while our limited editions change every 3-4 months. Be sure to grab a bag while you can!
Behind the Scenes
This next-level speciality coffee grew on the Garigekhan Estate in southwest India’s Chikmagalur district. The estate is ideally located in the mountainous Giri range. Pop over and you’ll find premium arabica coffee growing happily alongside pepper, turmeric, oranges and lemons. They all love the area’s top-notch conditions!
The ‘Garigekhan’ name comes from D.A. Graham, the British man who established the estate. He was greeted by two large ‘Garige’ (Red Cedar) trees when he first arrived, and the name stuck!
Garigekhan is managed and supported by the Kelachandra Coffee Group. This awesome group are champions of sustainable, socially-conscious coffee production. They’re currently developing schools in the villages adjoining their estates and providing living quarters and playschools for employees. They are pioneers of shade-grown coffee, too. Shade-growing is awesome – it slows down the trees’ growth rate and gives the flavours in the beans more time to mature. On Garigekhan, coffee grows beneath a leafy canopy of Ficus, some of which are nearly 100 years old!
Scores on the Doors
Remember that much-coveted A* grade at school? Well, speciality coffee is the A* of the coffee world. And these Daddywaddydoodah beans are some of the best – they’ve got a score of 85!
Certified ‘Q graders’ evaluate the coffee using a tasting process called cupping. Then, they score the coffee out of 100. If it scores 80 points or more, it gets the speciality medal. Anything lower, and it doesn’t. Here at Two Chimps, we only source and roast speciality beans because we can follow their full traceability. They taste miles better than anything low-grade, too!

Roasting is a magical process. We take green coffee beans and carefully roast them into aromatic, chocolate-coloured beans that taste drop-dead gorgeous.
Each element of the roasting process is key, from the temperature to the time. Before roasting, we analyse the density and moisture content of the beans and then adapt our bespoke methods accordingly.
Over-roasting is something we never do (it’s banned at Two Chimps!). If we’re looking for a light and fruity roast, we will shorten the roast time ever so slightly, while medium-dark roasts require a little longer in the roaster to give the coffee’s natural sugars time to caramelise. However we roast, we always time it to the second to get it just right!
Why buy speciality coffee from us?
What’s the point of speciality coffee? Is it just fancy packaging and tech talk? Nope – it’s so, so much more! All our speciality coffees are hand-picked and hand-sorted to ensure faultless beans. Unlike commodity coffee, which includes bitter, under-ripe cherries, speciality coffee farmers only pick their cherries at peak ripeness.
Bulk picking means supermarket roasters have to over-roast their beans to get rid of impurities. What do you get from this? Nothing but bitter and burnt flavours. Your Two Chimps coffee is the exact opposite – vibrant, fresh and perfectly roasted!
What’s more, we hand-roast our speciality beans multiple times a week to ensure we’re always delivering the freshest coffee to your door. Dull, warehouse-stored coffee is dreary; only fresh is best for Father’s Day and beyond!
Where does the name come from?
He’s no mere parent. He’s much more than a dad. Way beyond a father…
He’s your Daddywaddydoodah! ?
Say thanks this Father’s Day with awesomely fresh coffee. Best gift guaranteed.
