If you’re a regular coffee drinker, You should look to descale your machine at least once a month. We also recommend that you run water through the machine first thing in the morning and after your last cup in the evening. This may seem excessive, but it will make a big difference to the lifespan of your machine – and you can always use that water to warm your cup before brewing.
All of our coffee - from our capsules to our bean & grounds - are fully certified by the UK’s Soil Association. We think it’s important to know what goes into your food & drink, and that communities and individuals who help grow our coffee aren’t exposed to harmful chemicals, which is why we’ll only ever buy organic coffee.

All of our coffee is of a extremely high commercial grade, and many of our products - especially our Single Origins - will be of speciality grade (meaning they’ve been cupped at over 80 following the SCAA grading scheme).
