Curious Roo is a fairly new roaster to the scene but if you know west London you will know Artisan cafés (in Chiswick, Putney and East Sheen) this is their coffee and it's delicious! Run by husband-wife team Edwin and Magda they roast their beans in a converted warehouse in Chiswick and have recently opened a Curious Roo cafe in Ealing.
We love how the espresso makes a consistent and well balanced drink perfect with milk and we chose an unusual filter from Vietnam. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

These very special coffees come from smallholder Arabica producers living within the Central Highlands of Vietnam, known as the K’No people. Characterised by their local language, the K’No people are one of many ethnic minorities in Vietnam. Dung K’No is a commune of around 500 households, for whom the main source of income is agriculture. For many families, coffee farming is the only source of cash earnings. Other crops may include rice, maize vegetables and fruit trees such as bananas and peaches; however, these are mainly reserved for personal consumption.
