  • Tastes Like

    And they all lived pineappley ever after.

    …because they had a cup of this awesomely tropical coffee! Tantalize your taste buds with its juicy pineapple sweetness and jammy apricot flavour. There’s a refreshing, tea-like body, plus a curious hint of pistachio…

  • How to Brew

    While this coffee tastes awesome in every device, our favourites are a Cafetiere and Filter.

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

  • Behind the Scenes

    We source these high-scoring speciality beans from the Karongi district in western Rwanda. Coffee beans grow very happily in Rwanda; it treats them to regular rainfall, good soil structure and lovely high altitudes.

    Smallholder family-owned coffee farms pepper the Rwandan landscape. Farms tend to be small – often no larger than one hectare each – and organized into coffee cooperatives. This allows farmers to work together and share washing stations for their coffee processing.

    Gishyta is one such washing station. It opened in 2010 in an area of the Karongi district sporting year-round rainfall and first-class volcanic soil (arabica coffee trees just love this!).

    Today, the Gishyta station is owned by Providence. He has big aspirations for the station’s future and is currently developing new tracing practices which will allow him to identify, support and train local smallholder farmers.

  • Scores on the Doors

    Ever heard of Cupping?

    Cupping is the process used to find a specific coffee’s quality score. Here at TC, we only source and roast speciality coffee or, in cupping terms, coffee that scores 80 points plus. And in taste terms? Coffee that’s utterly DELISH! The best in the business.

    Coffees receiving scores of less than 80 points are marked as commodity. This dull, flat-tasting stuff ends up in most instant blends and supermarket coffees.

    To find out more about cupping, take a look at our step-by-step guide to coffee cupping at home.

  • Roasting

    Coffee roasting is the process of transforming raw green coffee beans into dark brown, beautifully fragrant gems we can grind for brewing. Green beans are soft and spongy and taste like grass (not yum), but they keep lots of lovely flavours locked inside. And roasting? It’s the clever process of putting this flavour and aroma centre stage!

    Here at TC, we never over roast our coffees. Large scale roasters often over roast to hide unpleasant flavours in their low-quality beans. But our hand-picked speciality coffees don’t have any bad flavours, so there’s no need for too much roasting!

    Instead, head roaster Andy creates bespoke roasting methods for each coffee. We roast with love and care to create naturally sweet coffees bursting with freshness and flavour.

    Each coffee we (hand!) roast is unique. Some are ‘lighter’ and offer bright acidity and floral flavours, while others have darker, creamier notes of chocolate or nut. Ooooh… which will be your favourite?

  • Why buy speciality coffee from us?

    Treat yourself to a bag of Two Chimps, and you’ll be supporting smallholder farmers across the globe. We go beyond Fairtrade requirements to pay between 30 and 150% more than the going rate for our green coffee, ensuring the growers receive a good price for their crop.

    We keep the supply chain short and source as directly as possible. Maintaining constant contact with our ethical coffee importers means we know our coffees and their growers inside out, and helps us to support farmers in the best way possible!

    Because coffee’s better when it’s kind, right?

  • Where does the name come from?

    Human beings are funny. We do wacky things like skydive and play tiddlywinks and stick big green trees up in the house at Christmas.

    And chimps? They’re equally charming. Yet to see a tiddlywink-playing chimp, though.

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.
