Roast Level / Brew Methods
The roast level for the coffees featured in this subscription will tend to be a Medium/Dark to a Dark roast. The darkest roast we will send will be similar in roast level to our classic St Vincent Roast - ( if you are looking for extra dark roasts like our Full French / Colombian Dark ,sorry we won't include coffees this dark but you can always subscribe to these coffees individually ).
This means they will be mostly suited to classic Espresso / Moka Pot and Cafetiere brewing however this does not exclude filter based brewing especially if you are a fan of these these darker coffees .
If you prefer lighter roasted fruitier coffees we would recommend our New Standard / Lab subscription instead. Remember you can switch between them at anytime.
We always recommend you grind your coffee at home, this ensures the coffee stays as fresh as possible and also lets you get the perfect grind for your brewing setup.
If you don't have a grinder we are happy to the grind the coffee for you - please select the grind method above when you subscribe
FREE delivery is included for this subscription.We will send your first order when you subscribe - each subsequent delivery will be monthly from your first order date (you can change this date via your account)
