Single Origin Coffee
A single origin coffee almost always carries the name of its country of origin somewhere in its name, surprise surprise! We keep our coffee names as descriptive as possible. Coffee from say Colombia or Costa Rica for example is available in different grades and types.
We buy and supply the highest grades to ensure you experience the difference.
Each coffee has its own attributes and tastes and it is a great past time savouring as many as possible, South Americans can vary from a slight nutty back taste to the exotics such as the maragogypes with their deep smooth taste. Special coffees, such as Jamaican Blue Mountain, need no introduction from us and are complimented by many other well established names.
Buy online as beans or pre-ground to order. Available in 250g and 500g packs.

This Mediterranean Blend is produced from Fairtrade accredited coffee. It is a Dark Roast Colombian Coffee .

Honey Cerro Dragon - Costa Rica is a firm favourite among our staff and customers alike. A medium roast, with very little surface oil and a sweet and nutty aroma.We recommend it for use as a filter coffee or in a cafetiere rather than as an espresso, as the longer brew times really bring out the complex flavours which helps to tone down the sharp citrus flavours that can come from the processing method. One of the owners of John Watt and Son visited the farm in 2019 and loved the coffee so much that we ordered some from our importers immediately. Only about 75 bags of Honey Cerro Dragón are produced per year which, as far as we are concerned, puts this coffee firmly into “Microlot” territory. We consider a Microlot as a specially cultivated and picked batch of beans from either a small producer or from a dedicated section of a larger plantation. It is kind of like a special edition coffee, or like when a rare wine is made from a grape picked from a defined section of a vineyard in defined year. We are going into true coffee nerd territory here!
Monsoon Malabar Coffee Beans when unroasted beans are yellow, rather than the usual light green. The yellow beans are exposed to the monsoon rain and winds for a period of about three to four months, causing them to swell and lose their original acidity. This monsooning process consists of exposing natural coffee beans, in 4- [...]
