We also offer bespoke coffee training covering all aspects of coffee brewing & roasting for any skill level. Please get in touch if you would like more information about organising a unique course tailored to your needs.  



  • Do you include a roast date on your coffee bags?
    Yes we do, it's above the Best Before date next to the Weight on the small white label
  • Do you supply brew recipes for your coffees?
    We avoid giving out brew recipes for individual coffees on any given brew method because each brewing 'system' i.e water, temp, grinder, brew equipment etc will be different enough for the recipe to be largely meaningless when trying to compare our brewing system to yours. However we do offer general Best Practice Brew Guides for a number of the popular systems & these are a great place to start when tweaking to find the coffees sweet spot.
  • Should I rest the coffee before brewing?
    Yes as we roast daily to order the coffee is very fresh, we recommend resting coffee for at least a week. The roast date is on the small white label above the Best Before date & next to the Weight. If you can't wait a week a nice hack we've found that works is to grind your coffee & let it stand 20mins this accelerates the resting process & your coffee can be brewed & enjoyed straight away, however the best practice proven method is to rest coffee over a week.
  • How should I store my coffee?
    We recommend storing in a cool, dark place away from heat, a kitchen cupboard or pantry works fine. Try to minimise exposure to air and moisture, so avoid the fridge. Coffee can be stored in the freezer in a sealed container indefinitely & ground straight from the freezer without defrosting.
  • Where do you ship to?
    We ship to the UK & Europe
  • How long will it take to get my coffee?
    We roast, post & deliver coffee 5 days a week. Our aim is to have all orders roasted & shipped the next working day Monday - Friday. The shipping method you select will determine the length of time it takes for your coffee to arrive. More detail can be found about estimated delivery times on the shipping page.
  • Can I change the delivery address of my subscription?
    Yes if you want to change the delivery address of your subscription send us an email with your new address & we can amend it for you.
  • When will I receive my subscription?
    Your first subscription will be Roasted & Shipped the next working day from when you started the subscription, unless you asked for it to be shipped at a point in the future.

  • Can I pause my subscription?
    Yes if you send us an email we will be able to pause the subscription until your ready to start it again.

  • Accessibility

There is a shallow step into the building, access to the brewlab/roastery/training area is via a narrow walkway, and use of the equipment (espresso machine/grinder/roaster) during the course requires standing.
