FAQ's & Storage

Frequently Asked Questions:

What strength is the coffee?

We advise this coffee to be a strength of 3.5 out of 5. Punchy but not over powering. 

Are the beans oily? 

No, these beans are not oily, if you have particularly sensitive machine/equipment, these beans should be perfect. 

Where to store the coffee?

We recommend storing the coffee in a cool, dark, dry cupboard, before you open them. Once opened, reseal the bag and they can be safely stored in the packaging, and we recommend to consume them within 4 weeks of opening.

How many coffees do the bags serve?

250g - serves 13-15 coffees. 500g - serves 26-30 coffees. 1kg - serves 55-65 coffees. We recommend one kilo bag to serve 2 coffees a day, to last a month.

What's the best before date?

All our coffees are roasted to order, meaning they couldn't be fresher. We advise a best before date of 6 months from the order date. 

Why plant trees?

  1. Restoring animals’ habitats, which, in turn helps increase biodiversity by giving endemic species the chance to thrive
  2. Removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by putting it back into the plants and soil, and therefore helping to reduce global warming
  3. Cleaning the air by removing pollutant gases such as nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulphur dioxide and ozone by trapping these gases in their leaves and bark 
  4. Restoring local ecosystems that have been destroyed by deforestation or other external factors
  5. Reducing the impact of flooding and soil erosion, which helps to protect nearby communities and their livelihoods 
  6. Providing an income for tree planters in lower income countries.

Espresso Brew Guide

Brewing espresso is a lot like brewing tea; if we leave our bag in too long we risk over-brewing the tea and extracting “stewed” bitter flavours from the leaves but if we do not leave it long enough our tea risks being weak and insipid. This means we must exert control over our brewing process to ensure that we extract all of the desirable flavour compounds whilst leaving behind the compounds responsible for unwelcome bitterness and astringency. This is easy with a teabag – we can take it out whenever we choose – but achieving the same control with espresso is slightly more complex.

Coffee does not extract homogenously during its brewing cycle. Most extraction occurs during the first third of its brew time. Typically fruit acids and bean fragments that contribute towards body extract first, followed by sugars, and then bitter compounds.

‘DIALLING IN’ OUR ESPRESSO

Understanding your grinder is the key to achieving desirable DOSE and BREW TIME. Whether you are using a modern “on-demand” grinder or a more traditional “dosing grinder” you should be able to control both DOSE and GRIND TEXTURE, both of which are critical to brewing balanced espresso. Here’s how...

Using scales, weigh a consistent dose of ground coffee into your double espresso basket -16g - 18g is a sensible choice for most espresso machines.

Aim for 36-40g of liquid espresso or roughly a ratio of 1:2 (18g of ground espresso to 36g of liquid espresso). 

Is it within your target brew time window? We recommend 20 - 30 Seconds.

Yes = SUCCESS!

Your espresso is probably well brewed and should taste full, sweet and balanced.

No = If you haven't extracted 30-40ml of liquid espresso, in 20-30 seconds, your grind is too FINE and your espresso will most likely taste thin, bitter & ashy.

Coarsen your grind slightly then grind and discard at least 20g of coffee to remove traces of the previous grind setting

No = If you have extracted too much liquid espresso (over 30ml for single espresso, over 60ml for double). Your grind is too COARSE and your espresso will most likely be weak and sour.

Make your grind slightly FINER then grind and discard at least 20g of coffee to remove all traces of the previous grind setting

Extra smooth & full-bodied, low acidity coffee with lab tested caffeine content. Medium/dark roasted with notes of creamy chocolate & malt. UK's strongest 100% Arabica coffee.

The Crafty Craft:

Uniquely roasted using a high air-flow technique, this elevates the natural sweetness to give a smooth and pure taste. Unlike traditional roasting, the chaff, the skin of the bean, that surrounds the raw bean is removed during the air process whilst in normal roasting this is burnt onto the bean. This makes the resultant air roasted beans more pure as the beans will taste less burnt and acidic. 

 - Tastes amazing when consumed black and without sugar. Perfect for those on a calorie controlled diet. 
 - Caffeine tested. 110mg per 30g espresso, based on 18g serving.

    Gym Brew-The perfect extra boost in energy.

    As a regular serious gym nut who trains 3-5 times a week along with HIIT sessions always looking for a good energy boost prior, as most of the so called best pre workouts are littered with insane amounts of caffiene amongst other untested ingredients I keep it simple. Beet juice-pre workout with a strong black coffee along with some basic carbs for energy. Tried this morning and apart from the superb taste my energy levels were without question increased with obviously enabled me to train harder for longer. Superb tasting effective coffee for the gym.
