Foundation An icon for our foundation genre coffee.


The coffees curated in the foundation genre are balanced and clean. They will be complex with low bitterness and a pleasing acidity. Flavour like this can only be achieved by growing the right coffee in the right place and paying meticulous attention to detail during the harvesting process.

How this works

We select one special coffee at a time to show case in each genre. As the coffee harvesting seasons change and new lots arrive at the roastery we change the coffee we are showcasing. Coffees change every 5-8 weeks and information about which coffee we’ve selected is included on each box of capsules you receive.

Postage icon


We do not charge postage for deliveries to the UK. International orders will have postage fees calculated at checkout. 40 capsules will fit nicely through your letter box. For larger orders our courier will ring your doorbell.

Short Capsule Short

Layo Tiraga

This fully washed Sidamo hails from southern Ethiopia’s Guji zone, a region traditionally famous for unruly, naturally-processed coffees. Layo Tiraga is a far more delicate beast, which is why we’re so excited by it.

Easily one of the sweetest Ethiopian coffees we’ve tasted this season, expect candied citrus and caramel with gentle floral aromatics.

Long Capsule Long

Mi Bendicion

Mi Bendicion is a small farm located in the Intibuca Department of Honduras, owned by Victoria Cocepcion. At 2.5 hectares, the farm only produces 25 bags a year of this Lempira variety and we have snapped up most of it.

This washed coffee is round and complex, showcasing the depth of praline and soft spice, accompanied by juicy notes of red apple and honeysuckle.

Taster Pack

Our taster pack presents you with four capsules from each of our genres. Explore the flavour of the coffees we source and curate.
