Are You Really Chimps? Meet Rutland's Ethical Coffee Roasters


Two Chimps Coffee are an independent, specialty coffee roasters based in Oakham. They've taken the area (and further afield) by storm with their quality, ethos and simply delicious coffee! This season they feature in our build-your-own hamper The Christmas Box with two of their products: hand-roasted, ethically sourced coffee beans and vegan-friendly 71% cocoa hot chocolate flakes. That's right, they're more than coffee. They're the whole she-bang. This year they also branched out into the tea world with some loose leaf classics. However, in true Two Chimps style, they've avoided classic names and opted for more endearing titles like 'The Bees Teas' or 'T is for Pterodactyl'. But let's get back to the coffee…

What makes Two Chimps Coffee taste so amazing?


"We hand-roast in small batches, by hand, multiple times each week to guarantee the freshest coffee available." If you follow them on Instagram, you'll even see proof of this with a quick Reel while they're roasting away. "Our coffees come to us from small farms and cooperatives around the world. This makes our coffees extra special because when a coffee runs out, it will be gone for good." Ah! So that's what makes the waft of a newly opened bag of Two Chimps Coffee so addictive. Hmmm… Coffee...

Although it's been a long year, nothing stopped Two Chimps Coffee in its tracks! "We have added a wider range of products during 2020, including some awesome gift boxes." They are of course referring to the slick black and white branding on their effortlessly cool merchandise. "For 2021, keep an eye out for more new coffees along with some very special Microlots." Microlots, you say? For those of you who are expert coffee drinkers (and lovers), microlots are the best way to dig into the real excitement of coffee. Microlots are chosen for their superior quality and unique flavour profiles. The beans are nurtured in an individual, natural environment to excel which is also more costly to produce. However Two Chimps Coffee are dedicated to ethical and fairtrade standards paying between 30 and 150% more than the 'going rate'. Isn't that incredible? If you haven't already tried their coffee, prepare to have your mind blown! Head over to our Christmas page here to choose them in our local food hamper.
