Carbon negative coffee



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 our seasonal coffees to shine through.

Born in Caxixe Quente, Jose Depulpo now lives on a property that he bought in the late 1980s. At that time he had only 1,500 coffee trees; now, years later, the farm is home to around 13,500. Despite this increased production, Jose has ensured that part of the property is set aside as a reservation forest. Jose works with his son, Josimar, and they rarely employ any outsourced labour. Effort is made every season to separate lots by variety, time of picking and the location on the farm. Josimar has undertaken coffee training courses in the Alegre region and plans to continue his father's legacy, modernising the farm and improving wherever he can.

This Ugandan Coffee that we call Midnight Flyer is a fully-washed coffee from Bugoye, a recent washing station development with a focus on fully-washed lots. The coffee is processed and sourced from somewhere between 300 and 500 farms. This is because the farm sizes in the Rwenzori mountains are very small, making it almost impossible to get a single farm lot within the region – meaning farms are grouped into specific areas. Midnight Flyer gives Donna a backbone of fruity sweetness and gentle acidity, without skimping on the complexity.

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.

Coffee however you choose. Available in 250g or 1kg bags.

Our selection of coffees: George Street Blend, Donna Blend, Roaster's Choice Single Origin or Decaf. In Whole Bean or Ground.

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.

Learn more about how we give back, and download our inaugural impact report, here.

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.
