Certified Organic by the Soil Association, George Street Blend is our go-to house coffee. Strong enough to shine through milk, George Street is carefully roasted to highlight the coffee’s robust, natural flavours, while also pushing through a deep sweetness that helps create a syrupy body. This version of our mainstay blend was created by combining two coffees from different sides of the world: the Peruvian coffee San Ignacio, which provides sweet caramels and red berries, and the Ethiopian Fahem, which adds sweetness and body.

Located in the north of Peru, close to the border of Ecuador, the town of San Ignacio is nestled along the Andes mountain range. With around 15,000 inhabitants, it’s the largest population centre within a two-hour driving distance. The area is characterised by steep and lush slopes, covered in curling, single-track roads. In 2001, 106 coffee farmers came together from the local town to set up a cooperative. They used this platform to share knowledge and tips, in order to help each other improve quality. Thus, UNICAFEC was formed. Nowadays, the cooperative counts a total of 385 members, one third of which is female. In fact, this particular lot is 100% female produced.

The Fahem coffee plantation is located in Ethiopia, in the Limmu Saka district of the Jimma Zone in the Oromia region. The farm covers 200 hectares with an altitude ranging from 1,855 to 1,958 metres above sea level. The farm is located in one of the most beautiful natural forest areas of the country, so the plantation is managed with maximum care to keep the natural ecosystem intact. There are more than 15 tree species on the plantation serving as shade trees for the coffee, and the farm works in harmony with the surrounding farmers by involving them as out-growers.

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.

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