We launched our Christmas Coffee blend in 2019 and it was a huge hit! We are very excited to release our 2023 Christmas blend which brings together some wonderful coffees from around the world with flavours that will make any Scrooge feel the Christmas spirit. Our Christmas Coffee Blend focuses on using great, fresh crop coffees that work together to create something fun and exciting for the Christmas season.
This year we are continuing to support FareShare Sussex, an organization that works to distribute surplus food to those in need. Please head over to their website to find out more about this great program that tackles food waste and hunger in the UK.

This year's Christmas blend contains the following 3 great coffees:
Varietal – Red Bourbon
Preparation – Washed
Location – North of Kibuye
Altitude – 1600+ masl
In 2015, we visited the Bwishaza co-operative for the first time and have been buying coffee from them every year since our first visit. Bwishaza washing station is co-operative owned and works with around 500 small-hold farmers. Most of these producers have just a few hundred trees and will harvest coffee every few days during the season, which runs from March to June. Our Rwanda natural coffee has been directly traded with producers and we are able to offer full transparency and detailed information on these coffees.
Costa Rica El Mirador
Varietal – Villa Sarchi, some Catuai
Preparation – Natural
Location – West Valley, Costa Rica
Altitude – 1500 masl
El Mirador is located in the West Valley to the north-west of the capital, San Jose. The farm altitude is around 1500 masl and is located on the southern slopes of two volcanoes. El Mirador is owned by Olman Aguilera, a second-generation coffee producer. His family have been involved in coffee production for several decades. His coffee is processed as a patio dried natural at a local dry mill helping to create wonderful fruit flavours.
Brazil Daterra Estate
Varietal – Various
Preparation – Pulped Natural
Altitude – 1000 masl
This coffee is great for multiple brew methods and works very well in milk based drinks. If you like a medium roast filter coffee or cafetiere with lots of body, and if you tend to use milk, then this will work well too.
This coffee works well for all brew methods.
Filter: Dose 15g, water 250g.
Espresso: Dose 18 gram to 40 gram yield over about 30 seconds.
Speedy delivery and very tasty coffee. Will be trying more roasts.
Easy to use website. The subscription service is easy to pause and adjust. Great coffee beans at a great price.
Delicious. Bought for my husband as a present.
Should have ordered more 😅
The Christmas coffee blend is very good - as is the Rwanda product. These were repeat orders. Unfortunately, for my most recent order, I forgot to tick the box asking for cafetiere grind and so have now got 4x 250g packs of beans. I have a grinder myself, but my coffee order was intended as gifts to indivduals whom I know do not have grinders. Had to resort to plan B.
The default order appears to be beans rather than ground. But my mistake.
