Our Coffee

For you, our coffee loving friends, we take time over our coffee. We make the most of the natural wonder that each bean contains by carefully sourcing, processing and roasting them to make sure you have a truly great cup of coffee. We don’t buy coffees from lots of different origins, we simply find the coffees that we, and hopefully you, love and celebrate them.

We use beans from well known, high quality, origins and either let them sing on their own or combine them together tomake perfectly balanced, exciting coffee blends.

From Costa Rica we use Caturra and Catuai varieties of Arabica coffee to bring silky smooth, buttery, honey sweetness to our blends. Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai from Guatemala add chocolatey sweetness, lemon-like acidity and a rich finish. East African coffees are bold and juicy, adding lots of fruit and zesty acidity from the Bourbon and Typica varieties. To round it off we add full bodied, rich dark chocolate sweetness and a spicy finish from Sumatran Typica.

We supply all our award winning blends to offices throughout the UK with clients including Virgin Atlantic, WeWork and Sodexo. Please email hello@changeplease.org if you would like our life changing coffee in your office or cafe.
