Christmas postal dates
It's time to think about getting your Christmas coffee orders in. Imagine running out over the festive period..sacré blue ! We cannot guarantee pre-Christmas delivery of course since we're all in the hands of the hard working post office workers but you will have the best chance of receiving your order if you place it with us no later than 1pm on Friday 17th December, for 2nd class, and 1pm Monday 20th for 1st class. We will continue to roast and dispatch week commencing 20th December and will be open for local pickups until midday on the 24th. The Roastery will then be closed until 4th January so we strongly recommend you order enough coffee for Christmas to see you through into the New Year.
Sebastian Ramirez La Plata Gesha process pack
We thought we would finish 2021 in the way we intend to start 2022....with a BANG !
Our final release of 2021 is something very special from one of the modern masters of Colombian coffee processing, Sebastian Ramirez and his farm El Placer.
Sebastian has become known for exceptional quality and only grows Pink Bourbon, Wush wush and Gesha. We were lucky enough to get our hands on two lots of his Gesha, processed with two different ways that each result in something exceptional.
Side by side they are quite a treat and demonstrate how the processing methods applied to one of the world's most exclusive varieties alters flavour characteristics. Both processed in Sebastians preferred Carbonic Maceration method with one as a natural and the other washed.
For their initial release we are only selling these as a process pair in 150g tins.

Finally we wanted to say a massive thank you to all our customers for your support throughout another year. We're continually striving to offer interesting and varied coffees, and roast them with the latest tools and techniques available. We 'think' we're doing a good job but it's not us that makes our business work. It's you, our customers. If you continue to enjoy our coffees and the service we provide then we can say we have really done a good job and we'll continue doing so to the best of our abilities going forward.
Enjoy your festive break and if you celebrate Christmas then we wish you a merry one.. with some delicious coffee to help you along the way.
