The Donna Espresso Blend is our nod towards a more traditional coffee flavour. First, we find coffees that have the inherent characteristics of deep chocolate, with low acidity and lots of body. We then roast a little darker than our other coffees, to the point where the natural sugars are browned to a dark caramel quality. Donna tastes robust and strong, but still allows the unique characteristics of East Timor and Peru San Fernando to shine through.

The coffee Lacau, from East Timor, is the result of the hard work of a cooperative producer group who collectively tend, pick and process their farms. The word Lacau is a conjunction in the local Mambi language, with “la” meaning “to go” and “cau” meaning “pulling”– a reference to the picking of the coffee. In Donna, Lacau gives the coffee a natural sweetness which we roast into a deep, dark caramel.

The Peruvian coffee San Fernando comes from producers in two isolated valleys in the Andes, belonging to the cooperative from which the coffee gets its name. The history of cooperatives in Peru goes back decades, and their collaborative nature is central to what makes Peru one of coffee’s most crowd-pleasing and reliable origins. The Peruvian coffee profile is all about balance and light sweetness, and San Fernando is all that and more: a calm acidity supports light caramel notes, underlining a creamy body with a gentle chocolate note throughout.

We don’t label our coffees as espresso or filter, dark roast or light roast. Why not? Simple. Our coffees are made to be delicious, however you decide to brew them.

For every single coffee we roast, we create a totally unique roasting profile, specially designed to bring out the best flavours from that specific coffee’s origin, farm and milling method. 

This is specialty coffee, so it deserves special treatment. Our roasting profiles simply ensure that the coffee keeps all of its character, however it ends up in your cup.

All of our coffees are tested weekly by our professional tasters to ensure quality and delicious flavour. They’re our Quality Control team, and they taste, evaluate, and refine every single one of our coffees, every single day.

Our coffee is roasted and packaged in state-of-the-art nitrogen gas-flushed bags, to help keep it at peak quality for over a month. Your coffee order will come from the freshest possible roast, and will always have weeks’ worth of peak freshness left in it.

We dispatch Monday to Friday from our roastery. You will receive the most recent roast.

Every single one of our coffees is ethically sourced from trusted producers, then sustainably roasted at London’s first carbon negative coffee roastery.

We pay over twice the fair trade price for our coffee, then give back by contributing to a number of international initiatives – not to mention by planting trees to ensure we soak up more carbon than we produce.
