At Thomson's we are constantly working on improving our coffees that means we like to try different roasts and that also means we have a lot of test batches that don't quite make the final cut. 

While we donate a lot of this coffee to social projects around Glasgow, we also want to offer these roasts to customer who are looking to try something new but also like a bargain.
