Delivery Info

All our coffees are roasted to order, and right now, we roast once a week on a Tuesday. On Wednesday morning we taste all the roasts that are due for delivery to check they’re tasting great before sending them out.

Delivery is £2.95 or free for orders over £20. Our delivery service is Royal Mail Tracked 24, meaning delivery time averages 1 working day. Your coffee will likely arrive on Thursday, but occasionally Friday. If your coffee doesn’t arrive within this time frame, then get in touch at hello@taylorsofharrogate.co.uk

We have recently added a 240g bag option to all our coffees, but we don't yet have labels for these bigger bags across our entire range. While we manage this transition, if you order a 240g bag of certain coffees in the range, you may receive 2 x 120g bags 

ingredients

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 and processed by the smallholder farmers of the Kalliluni cooperative in the mountainous Machakos province of Eastern Kenya, this coffee is bursting with the juicy and bright character we expect from the very best Kenyan lots. Sweet and juicy with a jammy body, it reminds us of a fruit compote – with sticky fruit notes of plum and cherry, backed up with crisp fruit aromas of lemon and blackcurrant.

As much as we love to build direct, long term relationships with our coffee producers, building face to face relationships over years, sometimes coffees find us through our network of export partners that are just too good to ignore. Brought to our attention by our East African partner Dorman, this coffee is a prime example.

Kalliluni cooperative

The ProducerKalliluni cooperative

Kaliluni Farmer's Cooperative Society and Factory has been perfecting the art of washed coffee production since 1962. Its current membership of around 1700 smallholders on average devote 5 hectares to coffee production, with many also using the rich, red volcanic soil to grow tea, maize, banana, plantain, and beans.

The coop is part of the Machakos Co-operative Union, which provides them with a range of useful services, like milling, marketing, training, transport and access to seedlings, helping to ensure a consistent, high quality harvest time after time.

The Coffee

The Coffee

The Kaliluni coop produced this coffee using the traditional Kenyan washed method. Smallholder producers hand-picked the cherries and delivered them to the factory the same day. Here, the ripe red cherries were sorted and separated at the wet mill, before being pulped and fermented for 16-18 hours to remove mucilage. The beans were then washed and graded, before sun drying to achieve a moisture content of 10.5 -11.5%. Finally, the coffee was delivered to the local dry mill to be hulled, graded, sorted and bagged.

How to brew Generation 72

We love brewing this coffee in a v60 or Kalita Wave, as the clarity of the cup helps bring out the bright acidity we crave in a Kenyan coffee. But as with all of our beans, we’ve roasted it to get the best out of any brewing method, from espresso to cafetiere.
