  • Tastes Like

    It’s love at first sight. Sweet blackberry and marshmallowy vanilla notes go starry-eyed for florentine flavours of toffee, fig and roasted hazelnut.

  • 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

    Despite only exporting coffee since 1917, Rwanda enjoys a perfect coffee-producing climate. High altitudes and good levels of rainfall give young coffee plants ideal growing conditions, while volcanic soils provide them with an abundance of nutrients. The Rwanda harvest runs from March to July, with export shipments starting in August and ending around December. Brew some Rwandan beans and expect a gorgeous, fruit-flavoured freshness reminiscent of red apple or berries.

    Coffee in Rwanda is usually traced back to its washing station since individual producers tend to have very small lots (with, on average, 183 coffee trees). This lusciously sweet coffee is washed processed at the Kanya Washing Station, which Kanyamibwa Edmond established in 2014. The team uphold rigorous processing standards. First, the coffee is dry fermented for around 24 to 36 hours. The producers then remove the mucilage before spreading the beans on raised beds to dry. The drying stage lasts for 15 to 22 days.

    Washed coffees leave us smitten with their heightened complexity, lush acidity and clean taste.

  • Scores on the Doors

    To become ‘speciality’, a coffee must first gain a ‘quality’ score. Pro coffee tasters find this score through a snazzy testing process known as ‘cupping’. The coffee will be scored on many attributes including taste, aroma and mouthfeel. If the coffee is marked at lower than 80 points, it won’t be ‘speciality’. It’ll be commodity instead (the sub-standard stuff).

    Never heard of cupping before? We’ve written a page all about it. Head over now to find out more about coffee cupping.

  • 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?

    Chimps love a banana. As in, really, REALLY love. So just imagine the love I’m talking about when I say I’m bananas for you! ?

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.
