You've gotta start your day right, and there's no better way to do this than a truly good coffee. It's something to get out of bed for, something to look forward to every morning. There's no right way to make your perfect cup of joe, but hopefully these simple steps will set you off in the right direction.

1. Get some good coffee

Next time you buy some beans, check out if it mentions these:

Look out for ‘speciality coffee’, this means it's been nurtured with care and attention to deliberately create great flavours. Coffee is scored on it's quality out of 100.  80+/100 is speciality coffee. Speciality coffee is better for you, the planet, and the famers' pocket. 


Everything that’s ever happened to the bean shapes it’s character, including where it’s grown. Single origin coffee comes from one farm or region. Take our coffee for instance: it's from the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala and has fruity notes.


This is how long the beans have been 'cooked' for. Most speciality coffees are medium to light roast, which we prefer because that keeps more of the subtle flavours. The type of roast has little effect on the level of caffeine. If you're looking for a kick, just add more coffee!


2. Choose your method

How you brew your coffee determines what you'll taste. There's no right or wrong, it's whatever you prefer. Just remember that the coffee needs to be ground to the right size for your chosen method. This will ensure you get the most out of all those wonderful flavours.





Call it what you want – it’s simple, no faff and reliable. A great place to start.

Enough reading. Get some beans and get brewing!
