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 it to have 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 Colombian coffee Los Vascos and the Ethiopian Jiramato. Together, they offer a crowd-pleasing combination of sweetness and strength.

Los Vascos is a cooperative of producers who work together under the name ASOTBILBAO. Each producer has a small farm, lush with coffee trees and nature reserves – a combination that makes the area look more like jungle than farmland. The cool weather of this mountainous region creates a terroir that is known for its deep butterscotch sweetness and light fruitiness.

Jiramato isn’t the first time we’ve used an Ethiopian coffee in George Street, but it is the first time in over four years. Ethiopia is one of our favourite origins because of its often complex, vibrantly fruity coffees. But the Jiramato shows that Ethiopian coffee can be not only bursting with acidity, but also full of calm, balanced and caramel-like flavours. It’s absolutely delicious.

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.
