Delivery Info

Our roasting schedule

We roast coffee twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday, and all coffee orders are dispatched within two working days of ordering. The coffee you receive from us will be roasted and sent to you fresh, without exception.

Delivery - Just coffee

Delivery is £3.50, or free if your order is £20 or over. Our
delivery service is Royal Mail Tracked 24, meaning delivery time averages one
working day. Your coffee will likely arrive Thursday, but occasionally Friday.
If your coffee doesn’t arrive by Saturday, then please get in touch
at roastery@taylorsofharrogate.co.uk

Delivery - Just equipment

If you’re ordering brewing equipment only, things work
slightly differently. Delivery will always be £5.50 and your order will be sent
by DPD Next Day. It will be dispatched the next working day, and will arrive
the next working day after that.

Delivery - Coffee and Equipment

If you’re ordering coffee and brewing equipment together,
then postage will be £5.50 and your order will be sent by DPD Tracked. But
because your coffee will be roasted to order on the next Tuesday, the whole
delivery will be sent out on the Wednesday and arrive on the Thursday.

100% Arabica Coffee Beans. For maximum freshness, drink as soon as possible. Once opened, keep in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Roasted and packed in the UK by Taylors of Harrogate, HG2 7LD.

Finca Las Alasitas is owned by the Rodriguez family.  

"Alasitas" translates to "buy me" in the local Aymaran language and if the name alone doesn't sell the coffee to you, the incredible depth of hazy, tropical fruit flavours will.

Las Alasitas

The FarmLas Alasitas

Pedro Rodriguez and his family began to invest in their own plantations in 2012, and Las Alasitas is the biggest of the seven farms that they own.

This Gesha micro-lot lies on a lush, steep mountain valley outside of the town of Caranavi.

The farm covers 20.6 hectares at 1600 metres above sea level. Due to its fertile soils and high altitude, the quality of coffee produced at Las Alasitas has gained a cult following around the world.

At Las Alasitas, Pedro hires pickers from the Villa Rosario community to selectively pick the coffee during the harvest. These pickers are trained to select only the ripest cherries, and make multiple passes throughout the season to ensure coffee is picked at its prime.

This is our first year buying coffee from Bolivia. We’ve been so impressed by the quality and we managed to catch Daniella Rodriguez at World of Coffee in Milan for a catch up – hoping to create a new relationship with delicious coffee for years to come.

Buena Vista / Agricafe

Milling and ExportingBuena Vista / Agricafe

The Rodriguez family own a wet mill and exporting company, collectively Finca Buena Vista and Agricafe.

At the mill they process coffees from their own seven farms, these coffees are exported under the name Fincas Los Rodriguez. At the mill, they also process and buy cherries from small-holder farmers from the area and these coffees are referred to as Finca Buena Vista.

Through Buena Vista and Agricafe, they have introduced a sustainable model for the producers who supply them at their mill. They built this on three mantras: economical sustainability, social understanding, and environmental awareness – the Sol de la Mañana program.

High-profit crops like coca (grown for the drug trade), which are easy to cultivate and can be harvested all year round, are a constant threat to the Bolivian specialty coffee industry. Established coffee trees are often dug up to make way for coca plantations. A lack of government support to produce coffee means individuals like Pedro Rodriguez are even more integral to the continuation of specialty coffee in Bolivia.
