Our Coffees

Our Coffees

All the coffees in this section are hand roasted in small batches in one of our two coffee roasters. The roaster in the shop window was purchased secondhand in 1936 and is still in use today. We also have a larger roaster in our warehouse behind the Crouch St shop. We roast 14 different types of coffe bean which we sell 100% pure or in 3 House Blends. Costa Rica is by far the most popular coffee in the range and is the 'House' Coffee in our first floor Morning Coffee Rooms. Open daily 9:30 to 12:30. It is also used for our popular 99p Take-Away coffees.

Bulk Coffee
We can 'contract' roast to your specifications any quantity of coffee from 10Kg. You can specify the coffee type and darkness of roast, or you can specify a blend roasted to your taste. Please phone or email for more details and bulk pricing. Trade enquiries welcome.

This Arabica coffee is highly rated by most in the coffee industry. Just about all the coffee grown in Kenya is pooled and graded by the government, with 'AA' being one of the higher classifications. This system gives a constant quality to each grade allows one to buy with the confidence that the coffee is always going to be the fragrant, sharp and full flavoured cup that you know and love.

A 'Peaberry' is produced when the berry of a coffee plant matures with only one half of it actually producing a bean. This bean then grows to fill the berry and is said, as a result, to gain in nutriment and hence acquire a better flavour. In comparison with Kenya flat beans the difference manifests itself in a smoother less acidic coffee.

A fairly ungraded coffee, which is dried with fruit still attached to the bean. The husks are the removed by milling which produces the irregular shaped beans so often seen in this coffee. The flavour of this coffee is usually described as gamey or chocolatey and sometimes as winey. Overall this is an unusual, pungent and piquant Arabica coffee which must be tasted. Produce of Ethiopia.
