Not sure about you but the world of specialty coffee can be a little overwhelming. even if you've figured out what the flip; washed vs carbonic macerated mean - you can easily be swayed by some pretty inventive tasting notes or the latest trends.
We think coffee needs to be a little more fun and even more friendly, so set out on creating just 4 coffees that work amazingly with the ways that coffee is brewed and enjoyed. in 2020, a very bright THIS ONE, THAT ONE, THE OTHER ONE and DECAF were born. the beans origin, how it's processed, who farmed it and so on are of course, incredibly important - we keep them in a safe place here or you can scan the QR code on one of the backs of our bags. we've used words which we hope all coffee lovers will understand on the bags, helping identify what they might like most and take a little guesswork out / pressure off getting it right.
We're a queer, female owned roastery based in a little seaside town in Kent called, Margate. we want to do our very best to provide visibility and representation within the coffee community. wanting to create an equitable, inclusive space for all and build a business that totally and completely puts people and planet first. we support local wherever we can which means our labels, tshirts and socks are all made nearby and Thanet residents get free delivery on a Tuesday and Friday.
To try and make this world a little bit better, we give 10p from every bag sold to the marvellous charity, Missing People UK or by choosing The Queer One it will go to glorious, Gendered Intelligence. these donations happen all year round/forever and are so important to what we and who we are. all of our bags are code 4 plastic recyclable and our boxes are self sealed with no plastic tape.
Our coffee is specialty grade and chosen for it's amazing quality, uniqueness and roasted specifically to make the most amazing brew with your favourite device. we work with eco-conscious importers in the hope of ensuring producers receive the right price for their work. more work is needed here by us and the industry and we're working on ways to explain our processes and costs with you all.
