Our The Maclehose coffee blend is a mix of Washed and Natural coffees from Ethiopia. Stunningly floral, fruity, and layered with honey, it uses the strengths of each producer to create a blend of the best Ethiopia has to offer.

A “Greatest Hits” of Ethiopia Blend

Named after the 100k long MacLehose trail, we aimed for a blend that is complex, elegant and that can be enjoyed every morning without becoming dull.

To achieve this, we focused on Ethiopian single origin beans. These coffees are widely considered to be the best you can buy. They are famously floral, fruity and require delicate a preparation to bring out their best attributes. 

The MacLehose celebrates all the tastes that make Ethiopian coffees great. We added intensely floral beans with a character found through out the region. We mixed in beans that exhibit a very berry, fruity character to give it sweetness. Finally we added some slightly darker roasts to add a honeyed depth.

The result is a blend that is far more complex than it’s individual parts. Like walking through a field of honeysuckle, while snacking on plums. The layers of sweetness makes this a cup you will keep coming back to.

Blend #2 - The MacLehose


Inspired by the famous Hong Kong Trail of the same name, the Wilson is an exceptionally nutty, chocolatey blend from Yunnan, Honduras and Uganda.

Very low acidity, smooth and full-bodied.

No Roast Levels?

Blends are tricky beasts. Unlike single origin coffees, each bean in the blend is roasted to a unique level. This creates a very specific, very consistent flavour profile for the blend but it also means that “roasting it darker” just isn’t possible.

Resting Your Coffee

Right after roasting, coffee needs some time to chill for a minimum of three days. Our roasting cycle ensures that when you receive the beans, it’ll already have rested the minimum needed. However, the flavours will continue to improve over a time. How long? Well that depends on the roasting level you ordered.

Generally your coffee will be at it’s peak after:

Light: 7-9 days after roast date
Roaster’s Choice: 5-7 days after roast date
Dark: 3-5 days after roast date

But every bean and person is different so please experiment and find what works for you!

No Pre-Ground Beans?

Unfortunately no. We would love to make your experience as convenient as possible, and while grinding your own beans is firmly in the mildly to very annoying category, we simply can’t do this for you.

The reason being, the second you grind your beans, you expose every nook and cranny to delicious coffee’s nemesis: oxygen. Too much oxygen and your coffee can go stale before you receive it in the post.

As delicious tasting coffee is our most important product we can’t take the risk of sending you a convenient but bland ground beans. Our best advice would be for you to buy a grinder.
