We’re proud to introduce a new addition to our range - Tamarin, a premium 100% arabica single origin coffee from Brazil. With flavours of almond, lime and peach notes, this coffee has a medium acidity and high body.
When a coffee’s this good, we think it deserves a regal name – so we’ve called it after the emperor tamarin monkey. Both the coffee and the tamarin come from Brazil, and both are distinctive and memorable.
Tamarins are one of the smallest species of monkey, not much larger than squirrels. We particularly love the emperor tamarin, which has a long, curling moustache, giving its face a wise and appealing look. They’re said to be named for the German Emperor Wilhelm II, who sported similar facial hair. Numbers of emperor tamarins are decreasing, as they face threats to their habitat, the tropical lowland rainforests of Brazil and Peru, and we’re delighted to be supporting conservation work to help benefit this little aristocrat of the primate world.

Nitrogen packed coffee beans – Freshness guaranteed!
All of our coffee beans are packed in nitrogen. Packaging with a nitrogen flush ensures no human contact and helps preserve the coffee beans. Using nitrogen removes oxygen from direct contact with the beans. This prevents oxidisation and ensures the coffee tastes freshly roasted. This will give you shelf life for over 12 months (unopened).
Coffee beans are filled with aromatic oils that create the flavour, crema and the full experience of the drink. Oils, however, oxidise and by packing in nitrogen removes the oxygen in the bag. By removing oxygen and moisture in the package also ensures no bacterial growth.
Nitrogen is an inert gas that is both odourless and food-safe. It is also abundantly available. Nitrogen is a great gas to use to flush out oxygen from coffee bags that have just been filled with freshly roasted coffee.
