Coffee Matchmaker

Rituals, Ventures or Rarities? All great coffees, so which to choose? Let us help you find your match in 4 simple steps.

Start Matching

How experienced are you with coffee and flavour notes?

Great! Now, How curious are you about developing your taste palette for more complex flavour profiles?

Nice. OK, What brew method do like to use?

Right. Last one, Do you take milk?

Rituals

We think you'll love Rituals — those things in our life which ground us, be it a morning run or some evening journaling, our rituals are things we wouldn’t be the same without.

Ventures

We think you'll love Ventures — selected as coffees which can open up our minds further to the potential of coffee. These cups will highlight more fruit forward or floral characteristics but with the balance of sweetness to back it up.

Rarities

We think you'll love Rarities — our rarities are designed to blow our preconceptions of coffee out the water. Each month this category allows us to showcase cups which have flavours even we would not have thought possible from our humble coffee seed.
