About PERCENT Coffees

GUSTATORY believes quality coffee should be enjoyed by everyone and there should never be a reason instant coffee with its compromise on quality - or even no coffee *gasps!* - is the alternative when needing to tighten those purse strings. Here, you may think of PERCENT as our saver or value speciality coffee subscription - still better coffee than any lower grade and less ethical supermarket / multinational cafe alternative, still impressive independent coffee roasters, just all for less.

Whilst all our other coffee subscriptions feature coffee roasters from across UK, Europe and USA, only British roasters feature in PERCENT. The prices of each subscription does reflect the real-terms quality of speciality coffee that they feature, and whilst our other packages feature 83-92/100 (SCA) scoring coffees, PERCENT supplies those 80-83/100, roasted medium. Rest assured, 80-83 is still a higher score than any Starbucks, Costa or Pret subscription commodity coffee, all of which aren't speciality coffee grade, nor are they ethical or sustainable (...we could go on, but let's just focus on these fantastic independent roasters instead). Enjoy!

Washed coffees tend to be more consistent and 'coffee' tasting whilst natural processed coffees are often fruitier and more experimental.

87-88 89-90 91-92 93-100
According to Speciality Coffee Association (SCA), coffees scoring 85-100 are classed as 'outstanding' whilst those less than 80 aren't speciality. GUSTATORY curates the best of coffee roasters to ensure you receive speciality coffees worth trying, and unlike others, wouldn't ever supply 81-82 scoring coffees... you know, high enough to be advertised as 'speciality', low enough for cost savings - *sigh*. For us, transparency into pricing and quality is key, and for our value option, try PERCENT.

Coffee Subscription Benefits & Info
Freshly Roasted Coffee All of our UK and international coffee subscription's featuring roasters' coffees are roasted fresh to order and shipped to us toward the end of every month ahead of the next turn of the month dispatch period. All subscribers are dispatched at the start of every month irrespective of payment cycles. Tasting Notes All our coffee's tasting notes and stories are published online. View archived months. Also Included Personal curation card, roaster's own coffee info cards (when supplied) and occasional complimentary drinks. As a warm welcome, also enjoy a complimentary 250g coffee bag in your first delivery. Price Savings We recommend 7-9g/15g for a single/double shot espresso and 14-19g for 250ml filter methods (brew guides). For the price of 2 or 3 cafe coffees you're able to achieve 15 to 35 cups per 250g bag depending on brew method and strength preferences. Enjoy all our savings on RRP prices, and with dispatches made from GUSTATORY (UK), rest assured, there are also no international roaster import fees for UK residents. Rest Period We always recommend that coffees are 'rested' between their roast date and first consumption to allow the coffee to 'degas', making brewing easier and your cup tastier. Such a 'rest period' will take place during your coffee's journey from it's speciality roaster to you, and so, whether our curated special guest coffee roaster is located in London, Edinburgh, Budapest or Copenhagen, even New York or California, your delivered coffee will be ready to be enjoyed.
Shipping & Costs
Fulfilled By GUSTATORY All GUSTATORY coffee subscriptions are fulfilled by us. If you subscribe to multiple subscriptions, your coffees and/or (Un)ordinary oat m*lk will be consolidated.

Custom fees may apply at the time of import to your destination country, but many countries do have customs-free value thresholds on parcels sent from UK (for example, Australia / USA) and our subscriptions may easily fall under these.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID and the cost-of-living crisis brings, many are tightening the purse strings and choosing cheaper alternatives. However...For more: Comunicaffe International
...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable coffee subscription packages. It also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All coffees are roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly subscription delivery schedules.
