Extra tasty coffee in a unique 250g package.
Two Chimps support the farmers and workers in the country of origin.
They make sure they pay between 30 and 150% more than the ‘going rate’ for their green coffee, meaning the farmers are paid more for their crops.
This in turn leads to the opportunity of better living conditions and, potentially an even better harvest.

Behind the Scenes:This Organically Certified coffee is grown in the Gualme area of Copan in Western Honduras.
Gualme is a relatively high altitude area of Honduras, meaning they experience greater fluctuations in both temperature and humidity. Although this makes it a challenging environment to dry coffee, Gualme does produce coffees with pronounced acidity and a great complexity.
This year the farm where this particular coffee comes from; La Cascada, benefitted greatly from a new centralised drying facility. The facility provides conditions which are much more suited to drying coffee, allowing farmers like Saul to showcase the full potential of his amazing coffee.
The coffee cherries were hand-picked when ripe, floated and then washed. Next, they were pulped and fermented overnight before being left to dry on raised beds.
The majority of the work carried out on this farm is done by the owner, Saul Moises Mejia and his family; all of who live at this farm in Honduras.
Roasting: At Two Chimps, they hand roast coffee. They use the roasting process as a way of showcasing the natural flavours and aromas from the coffee. If a particular coffee is roasted too dark, these flavours and aromas will be lost, and instead, you will find burnt and bitter notes. Because their coffees are of such high quality, they don’t need to roast darker to hide any bad flavours. All of their coffees have a natural sweetness, and they give this sweetness room to shine through.
Each coffee has an individual and unique flavour. Some have notes of chocolate, while others can be more fruity for instance.
