Coffee & Chocolate Explorer Pack
This variant is currently sold out
This pack includes artisan chocolate to match the coffee we have chosen. It really is the perfect indulgence and a real treat to receive.
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 picks!
January’s box contents:
250g bag beans from Curve (Chelbesa espresso from Ethiopia or El Rancho filter from Guatemala)
250g bag beans from The Gentleman Baristas (Top Hat espresso from Nicaragua or Gatsby filter from El Salvador)
1 x 70g Honduras Milk Chocolate 59% with Ethiopian Coffee from Bare Bones
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 15g - 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.
