Depending on the purchasing price or conveniency, coffee farmers are free to decide which factories to sell cherries to. This means the factories members various from time to time.

Roast & despatch days are currently Monday to Friday. All orders placed after midnight on Thursday will be roasted and dispatched on Monday.
We create a new and unique profile for each coffee we roast. Although the profiles are different, our approach is always the same, to highlight and accentuate the flavours created at the farm and mill. This means we don't label our coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. All of our coffees are omni-roast, meant to be delicious however you brew. We believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.
