London Grade Speciality Coffee Roasters

You can be confident of a decent cup of coffee in Italy, and London Grade knew that the Italians buy most of their coffee beans from India. Disappointed with the quality of coffee available to brew at home, London Grade set off to Southern India to find a coffee estate which could supply us. London Grade also knew that coffee grown on the land in the lee of the Western Ghats was renowned for its sweetness and depth of flavour. The mountains prevent a heavy monsoon on the eastern side, and the thick forests shade the coffee plantations from the sun. London Grade found an organic estate owned by a passionate second generation coffee producer, whose coffee cherries ripen under a canopy of silver oak, rosewood, mahogany, cardamom and orange trees. London Grade tasted the coffee from the roastery, and they knew they had found what they sought.

Sandi Toksvig once described drinking a white wine as 'like running through nettles in a shell suit'. She gently skewered the pretension of the wine industry. Wary of overcomplicating a simple drink, London Grade has found the most delicious coffee and most effective brewing equipment, and will deliver it to you efficiently at a fair price. London Grade enjoy drinking the three coffee blends they have devised, and are confident you will enjoy drinking them too.

The coffee industry is in crisis. Informed purchases are needed

Issue: Coffee prices are in crisis, which threatens the very existence of many coffee producers, and so, the future of coffee globally.For more: GUSTATORY on Sky News Radio (Interview)
Our Answer: Informed purchasing of coffee from the independent coffee roasters available through GUSTATORY's coffee subscriptions are encouraged. Through direct-to-source relationships, roasters are able to protect their supply chains from the effects of price volatility as they form special relationships with producers. These relationships also protect producers as roasters often commit to fixed term and fixed price contracts, which give producers certainty. This certainty is what producers need in order to not only survive but thrive, committing to sustainable practices and addressing other global problems that are threatening the industry such as climate change.

Make their commitment your commitment. Support independent coffee roasters and you’ll be making a difference before you even have your first cup of coffee.
