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.

La Falda

The ProducersLa Falda

La Falda is the name given by our importer partners Caravela to this lot of coffee from Garzón in Huila.

The name La Falda translates to “The Skirt” and comes from the shape of the mountains against the horizon, which looks like a skirt.

The lot is made up of coffee from 10 producers who all live in and around the town of Garzón.

Made up from popular disease resistant cultivars Caturra, Colombia, Castillo and the variety Typica, the coffees are all washed before being sent off for decaffeination.

Decaffeination

The coffee and ProcessDecaffeination

To remove the caffeine, the coffee is sent to the Descafecol plant in Manizales. The decaffeination process at this plant uses ethyl-acetate, which is derived 100% from non-GMO Colombia sugarcane mixed with mountain water. The process removes 99.7% of the caffeine in the coffee.

The natural EA process helps to preserve most of the original flavours of the coffee while adding some subtle fruity notes and complexity to the cup.

With the coffee being decaffeinated in Colombia, rather than in another country, this coffee has a much lower carbon footprint compared to many other decafs.

The EA decaf process is as follows:

Coffee is transported to local decaffeination plant Beans are steamed to open the pores for 30-40 mins Beans are rinsed for 10 hours in Ethyl-Acetate. (E.A.) Beans are steamed again to remove any E.A. residues Then dried using hot air to reduce moisture below 12%

The entire process takes 24 hours on average.
