  • Tastes Like

    Coffee’s answer to the nostalgic sweet shops of memory, this special coffee from Zambia matches strawberry milkshake with the richness of treacle and a zing of black wine gums.

  • How to Brew

    While this coffee tastes awesome in every device, our favourites are a filter or cafetiere.

    Head over to our brew guides for making coffee for more info.

  • Behind the Scenes

    Established in 1972, Kateshi is one of the first coffee estates in the country. Modern-day Kateshi is governed by two principles: sustainability and equality. The estate strives to maintain excellent community relations and protect local natural resources.

    This naturally processed coffee has enjoyed an extended anaerobic fermentation period of up to 72 hours before sun-drying on raised beds.

    Kateshi has been recognized in Zambia for challenging stereotypes within the coffee farm industry. They were the first farm in Zambia to employ women to stereotypically men’s roles, such as driving larger farm vehicles like tractors and bulldozers. This intense focus on gender equality for Kateshi means this coffee directly affects women’s empowerment in the coffee farming industry.

  • What does the score mean?

    Speciality coffee is coffee’s answer to the A-Star. It’s the coffee crème de la crème. The only coffee Mum deserves. Grown with care at high altitudes and hand-picked at perfect ripeness, speciality coffee is hard to beat. Its flavours are bright and exciting, its profile naturally sweet… perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch!

    How do you know if it’s speciality in your bag? Take a peek at the cup score (it’s the number out of 100). Is it 80 points or above? Then it’s speciality! Below 80? Then it’s a commodity coffee…. Blehhh. Don’t worry, though, here at Two Chimps we ONLY source and roast high-scoring, naturally sweet speciality coffees for your mug. Because we know you and your ma want the best!

    Quick tip from the Chimps. Try not to pick speciality coffees based only on the number. Go for a score above 80, always, but remember the nitty-gritties of the number are often down to the opinion of the Q Graders who cupped the coffee. Exceptionally high scores tend to indicate coffee that’s really rare or a bit wacky in flavour.

    The best approach? Be guided by your tastebuds and choose a coffee you love!

  • Roasting

    Fresh, carefully roasted coffee beans are what you want. Over-roasting is like scorching your toast big time – you get flavours that are bitter and burnt.

    We never over-roast any of our coffees here at TC. Why? Because we don’t need to. All our beans are speciality arabica and hand-picked to ensure peak ripeness. Ripe beans are naturally sweet (think about a ripe, burstingly juicy blackberry), so provide us with delicious layers of flavour to highlight in the roasting process.

    Compare this to supermarket stuff and instant blends, which are often over-roasted to mask the unpleasant taste of low-grade robusta beans. Over-roasting hides these bad tastes… but replaces them with burnt ones!

    Choose speciality Two Chimps instead, and you’ll find a cup bursting with bright flavour and natural sweetness!

    Can’t recommend two chimps coffee enough, found them at a local food market giving out free samples and it was the most amazing coffee I’d ever tasted and I’ve been hooked ever since, that was about 4-5 years ago, maybe even longer, their service is amazing and their coffee is genuinely some of the best around, great company and ethos, I dread to think how many bags of coffee I’ve had from them but every single one has been delicious and they make great gifts too.If you want great coffee and want to get your great coffee from people with a real passion for coffee then Two Chimps are the people to speak to.Their packaging is also 100% recyclable which is nice and shows they care.Keep up the good work guys.

    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.

    Have been a customer at Two Chimps Coffee for two years now and I have never been disappointed. Every now and then, we get to try different coffees and switch things around. Love the little surprises they send sometimes as well! Overall a very pleasant experience.

    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.
