Making great coffee in the comfort of your own home has never been so important.
With the work from home culture rising post pandemic, it’s so important to upgrade your coffee setup and learn how to make the best coffee you can at home.
Here are our popular coffee brew guides so you can learn from our Founder and coffee expert James Bellis.
There is no shame in drinking coffee for Cafetiere or otherwise known as, the French Press.
It’s a classic brewing device that was first invented back in 1923 which demonstrates that it stands the test of time in a world full of innovation. The Cafetiere uses immersion brewing technique to allow the coffee grounds to extract from the coffee over time before serving.
The Moka Pot was invented shortly after in 1933 by an Italian inventor and then popularised in Italian culture. This methods provides the closest experience to an espresso without using a machine.
This is because upward force is applied during the extraction process, providing a more rich and robust drink.
The espresso machine is one of the best mechanical inventions created within the nineteenth century. The rich, caffeine fuelled crema produced from the power of 9 bars of pressure, applied to finely ground espresso results in a truly wonderful coffee experience.
Pair this with silky milk or an oat alternative to enjoy a gorgeous, well balanced cup.
The rise of home espresso machines have provided you with the luxury of cafe standard coffee cutting out the role of the barista and reducing the cost to enjoy organic, speciality coffee at home.
Other filter coffee methods are also available at more affordable prices. For example, the V60 Brewer is a staple coffee brewer which uses the drip coffee method.
The Aerobie Aeropress coffee maker is a hugely popular coffee brewing device since it not only makes incredible coffee, it’s lightweight, portable and easy to clean.
Similar to the V60 but on a larger scale the Chemex coffee vessel is perfect for those obsessed with perfecting filter coffee. Why?
The Chemex filter papers are thicker than normal, meaning more coffee oils are trapped inside the paper during coffee extraction, which results in a cleaner cup.
Ideal if you’re looking to pick up the subtle nuances associated with single origin coffees.
Making the perfect cup doesn’t stop at the brewing. Grinding your coffee beans fresh is a sure fire way to produce the best quality you can at home. Why?
When coffee connects with oxygen in the atmosphere, it begins to deteriorate ground coffee at a rapid rate. This has a hugely negatively impact on the flavour produced which is why we always recommend grinding coffee fresh.
There’s an art to this however, which is why we produced a guide on how to grind coffee so you can make coffee like a pro.
So you probably love sipping on a flat white every morning but you’re on a budget and can’t afford a milk frother yet?
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Learn how to froth milk in a Cafetiere and you’ll be producing silky, gorgeous foam perfect for pouring your morning coffee.

There is so much noise on the subject of sustainability these days, and rightly so. With our planet in serious danger, more companies need to drive smarter initiatives that give back and offer sustainable solutions for our future.
There are many ways to do your part as a company and as a consumer of products. It’s a vast topic though, so we thought we’d do our bit and help explain the question, what is sustainable coffee?
There are so many ways that you can choose to be sustainable by the coffee you decide to drink and where you buy it from. Firstly, a simple action is to begin recycling coffee grounds at home which can make a huge difference. Plants love the spent grounds.
Additional ways of operating sustainably include buying ethical coffee from recognised reputable suppliers.
There’s tonnes of information to consider when looking for the right coffee roaster to buy from. We thought we’d share all of our insight by putting together an expert guide to buying ethical coffee to be more conscious about the environment.
One of the biggest questions we get asked, is how do you actually store coffee? There are common myth’s such as ‘leave your coffee in the fridge’ which are not correct.
The best way to store coffee at home is in a sealed bag or a airtight jar. Here’s more information on storing coffee.
There are around seventy countries across the world that grow and produce coffee. Very specific growing conditions are required for particular bean varieties to harvest.
These coffee origins provide over 160 million bags of coffee globally every single year which is a staggering sum.
Fortunately, when looking for coffee online, you can discover your favourites by learning more about which coffee origins suits your preferences.
Each country and region has its own unique flavour that are characterised by soil conditions and altitude in which the coffee is grown.
Whether you’re looking for a coffee from Brazil, Ethiopia, Colombia, you’ll be sure to find your favourite coffee beans online.
So what the heck is coffee roasting and does it even make a difference to the flavour of your coffee?
The answer is yes, it’s a hugely important part of the coffee making process.
Although, luckily you don’t need to worry about it as that’s all down to our method of carefully selecting the green beans from different origins and regions across the world, blending them and then adding them into our coffee roaster ready for cooking.
Once they’ve come out, they’ll be cooled quickly and will be left to de-gas for 24 hours before adding to your coffee bag. From here it’ll be ready to be shipped to your UK wide house or office location.
Did you know? Before coffee beans end up in your cup, they are ground fresh before use and even roasted in a coffee roasting machine before being added to the bag they are transported in.
So what’s even crazier than that? Coffee beans in their original form are actually green beans that are found inside coffee cherry’s that form on plants across many coffee growing regions across the world.
If your loved one, relative or friend has a birthday coming up and you’d love to surprise them with a freshly roasted bag of healthy coffee then look no further.
