Coffee Explorer Box
This variant is currently sold out
Every month we sit down with our barista's and pick a different two independent roasters. From these roasters we chose Filter and Espresso beans - these beans are roasted fresh for us and we carefully package them up and send them out to you to enjoy.
This is a limited edition box only available until the last day of the month - on the first of the month it will then be replaced by our next two picks!
May’s box contents:
350g bag beans from Square Mile (single-origin espresso from Brazil and filter from Columbia)
250g bag beans from Carringtons (Brazillian espresso or 48hrs washed single-origin filter from Columbia)
1 x brewing notes

Filter or Espresso?
As a general rule if you have a specialist espresso coffee maker then espresso roast is for you. Filter roasts tend to give a cleaner, sweeter coffee taste - perfect if you are brewing your coffee with a drip system such as V60 or press method such as Aeropress or a Cafétierre. However, if you prefer a darker more ‘roasted’ flavour espresso beans can also be brewed using the filter brew methods above - in particular Aeropress.
How many cups per bag?
We estimate around 15 - 18g of beans per cup of coffee (depending on the type and roast) - so we reckon you'd get approx 15 - 17 cups of coffee per 250g bag. The box will give you approx 1 cup per day for the month
We stock a few items here which are great to get you started (and all will make a fine cup of coffee) but if you really want to invest in some serious gear check out our recommendations here.
