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

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.

Mauricio Shattah

The ProducersMauricio Shattah

Ex-surgeon Mauricio Shattah and his wife Liliana found La Negrita after a five year search for the perfect coffee farm. There’s nowhere quite like it.

We first visited the farm in 2018 as part of a trip to find the most pioneering producers in South America and we were blown away with what Mauricio was doing with anaerobic coffee processing. After the first micro-lot he created for us – Colombia Red Geisha – turned out to be the best coffee many of us had ever tasted, we have now bought amazing coffee from Mauricio for 4 years straight!

Mauricio is known for applying a scientific approach to speciality coffee. Last time we visited the farm, he was growing 27 different varietals, many of them exotic, experimental or of unknown origin. In recent years he’s completely moved away from Washed production to focus on Naturals and Honeys, all of which are fermented anaerobically with a whole host of variables that can be changed to manipulate the cup profile, before drying in humidity-controlled darkness.


The Coffee/ ProcessSidra

We spoke to Mauricio in February 2022, he was particularly happy with how his Sidra cultivar had turned out this year. Sidra is an innovative hybrid; bred purely for cup quality. It’s a cross of Bourbon and Typica, taking the best from both. The coffee is grown at the highest part of La Negrita between 1900 and 2100 meters and Mauricio has around 2000 trees of the Sidra.

Only ripe cherries were selectively picked and processed in January then milled in March, so it is extremely fresh this results in a great intensity of flavour.

The processing is natural anaerobic and the tanks are flushed with nitrogen to displace C02 and Oxygen, helping to prevent dominant and unpleasant flavours from acetic acid from building up.

UKBC and Future Pack  

The PackUKBC and Future Pack  

Discovery's own Will Woodhouse-Banks used this coffee to compete in the UK Barista Championships this year. As an espresso it tasted like Yuzu, Fermented Pineapple and Blood Orange.

The future pack. This coffee represents the peak of modern innovation, and so we’ve put it in a pack which we think it deserves. As yet, the perfect coffee pack doesn’t exist because having something fully recyclable in your home recycling that also has a barrier to keep your coffee as fresh as possible for as long as possible hasn’t been invented yet. Our paper packs are close, but not perfect. So, we decided to challenge ourselves to design an entirely new pack with an eye on the future...fully recyclable, good looking enough that you want to leave it out on your kitchen worktop and maybe even use it again. We’re really pleased with the pack we’ve come up with but let us know what you think to it -we’d love to hear your thoughts.
