  • 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

    We source this uber-brewtiful coffee from Chelbesa, one of the finest coffee-producing areas within the famous Gedeb Woreda in Ethiopia. The coffee trees are grown under protective shade cast by dense, layered semi-forest vegetation. This allows the cherries to grow and ripen slowly, enriching their pulp with sweetness. Chelbesa is an excellent example of sustainable farming working hand in hand with nature, also known as agroecology.

    SNAP Specialty Coffee was established in 2008 by coffee-passionate entrepreneur Negusse D. Weldyes. In 2019, they expanded to build a new wet mill in a small hamlet called Danche within the Chelbesa Village. Once completed, the goal was to purchase exclusively red cherries from the nearby farmers in Chelbesa Village. Around 495 smallholder farmers deliver their cherries to the mill. Coffee production in the area is high due to the fertile redbrown soil, which is iron-rich and has a high acidity content.

    Once the fruit has arrived at the wet mill, they are sorted with the help of floatation tanks. This method separates all floaters (under-ripe cherries) from the perfectly ripe. This process also cleans the cherries with fresh water. This mill holds multiple ceramic fermentation tanks, which helps bring precision to the coffee they process. The material also speeds up fermentation due to heat retained within the ceramic. Once removed, they are placed on raised African drying beds for 28-35 days.

  • What does the score mean?

    Take a peek at your fresh coffee’s cup score (it’s the one out of 100). Is it below 80? Then it’s a commodity coffee. 80 points or above? Then you’ve got yourself a bag of super-delicious, entirely defect-free speciality coffee!

    Speciality coffee is the coffee crème de la crème. The top dog. The best of the bunch. It’s cherries are picked by hand at perfect ripeness, it’s flavours are interesting and naturally sweet… it’s the only coffee your mug deserves!

    But, watch out. Don’t choose your coffee based solely on its cup score. Remember – this mark is only the opinion of the Q Graders who cupped that coffee. A lower-scoring coffee might taste less avant-garde, but its flavour profile might be just what you’re after! Play around, try different tastes, and go with the coffee you prefer!

    Each coffee in our Two Chimps range sits in the 80-90 points range. We tend to avoid coffees with scores in the high 90s, as this often indicates a very, very rare coffee rather than one we know you’ll love!

  • Roasting

    We never ‘over roast’ our coffees. Not ever. Instead, we use the roasting process to show off all the natural flavours and aromas within your coffee.

    Big-name commodity roasters often use the roasting process to mask undesirable flavours in low-quality beans. Overroasting (when coffee is roasted too dark) gives the coffee a bitter and burnt taste. So, essentially, they are replacing foul tastes with bad ones. Not what you want, is it?

    We only source high-quality speciality coffee here at Two Chimps. Our premium green beans have nothing bad to hide – just lots of delicious, naturally sweet flavour! We roast gently to put all these flavours in the spotlight and bring you coffee that’s lusciously sweet and perfectly flavourful!

    The coffee farmers put everything into producing an outstanding product for us. It’s only fair we do the same for you, right?

  • Why buy speciality coffee from us?

    Thinking of popping a bag in your basket? Do – it’ll be the best thing you do all day! Because when you choose Two Chimps, you are supporting small coffee farmers and producers across the globe.

    We always pay between 30 and 150% more than the ‘going rate’ for our green coffee, which helps to ensure the farmers receive more for their crop. This opens the opportunity for better living conditions, plus funds to invest in an even better harvest next year.

    Keeping the supply chain as short as possible is a priority at TC. The shorter it is, the more goes back to the farm and workers. Simple.

    Keep doing what you’re doing. You really are awesome.

  • Where does the name come from?

    This roast is truly brewtiful. Red roses and a box of chocolates are so predictable, but this is everyone’s perfect Valentine’s date.

    Just tried this as a milk-based espresso and I didn't regret it! Lovely fruity notes, and on another note - free delivery in record time - I ordered Thursday night and it arrived on Saturday morning!

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.
