Delivery Info

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

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.


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. If you have any left, just reseal the pack and keep in a cool, dark place. Roasted and packed in the UK by Taylors of Harrogate, HG2 7LD.

Grown by long time Taylors partner Pedro Gabarra Teixeira, this yellow bourbon lot is sweet with a silky-smooth body, but with a brighter and more vibrant acidity than your typical Brazilian coffee. One that we’d describe as pleasantly fizzy.

Pedro is a 5th generation owner of Fazenda Pinhal, one of a group of farms he owns and operates in the Minas Gerais region of Brazil.

As well as producing incredible coffee, Pedro and his family are genuine stewards of the natural world. With only 35 per cent of the farm’s land devoted to coffee, and the rest preserved as national forest and pastureland, it’s no wonder Pinhal was recognised as Brazil’s most sustainable coffee farm in 2019.

PEDRO GABARRA TEIXERIA

The ProducerPEDRO GABARRA TEIXERIA

Fazenda Pinhal is a 914 hectare farm located close to the city of San Antonio De Ampoaro in Sul De Minas. Its owned and run by the Gabarra Teixeira Family, who acquired the farm in 1994, and employ 49 people in peak season.

Surrounding the coffee farm, which only represents 35 per cent of the farm’s total area, is a vast expanse of natural land which the family preserves, protects and invests in. This includes a nature reserve, Eucalyptus forest that’s being regenerated and pastureland for cows, as well as a bird aviary and sanctuary that they have set up to rehabilitate injured birds, many of which have been rescued from illegal trafficking.

It’s this passion for coffee and the natural world that’s kept us buying coffee from Fazenda Pinhal, and Pedro’s other farms, for the last 15 years. As well as showcasing specially produced microlots like this one through our Discovery roastery, he is the producer of our Brazil single origin coffee found in supermarkets, and his coffee has been a mainstay in some of our most popular supermarket coffee blends.

The coffee

The coffee

While the majority of Fazenda Pinhal’s coffee is mechanically picked – the norm for Brazilian coffee – this yellow bourbon microlot was hand-picked for ripeness and hand sorted.

Rather than being transferred straight to a patio to dry after harvesting, as is standard with naturally processed coffees, it has gone through an additional 5-day fermentation, before being dried on African raised beds for 15 days.

We expect this extra fermentation is what gives this coffee its fizzy, almost phosphoric acidity and a brightness that’s uncharacteristic of Brazilian naturals.

How to brew Free Bird

This is a versatile and balanced coffee that works equally well as an espresso shot, the base for a milk drink, or a black coffee. Our best result? We found it to be a brilliant all-day slurper on Aeropress.
