Our award-winning coffee, in support of our chosen charity Switch Up. A juicy sweet coffee that is tangy on the tongue when served black, but smooth as caramel with the addition of warm milk.

Switch Up Charity

Switch Up exists to empower young people, children and young adults to break the cycle of offending and reoffending. The charity uses tried and tested mentoring techniques along with physical training to engage young people in positive activity and to steer them away from the circle of crime and gang-criminality. They deliver mentoring, counselling, accredited non-formal education, personal development workshops, and through-the-gate resettlement mentoring for young people serving custodial sentences. Through their programmes they help young people to reflect on their lives and to express positive targets for the future.


This premium single origin coffee is produced exclusively by female farmers in Guatemala. By providing women artisans with skills and income opportunities, our importer Volcafe is able to help transform cycles of poverty to cycles of prosperity.

Team Recommendation

Mike, Head Roaster: Our Switch Up charity coffee has been my espresso of choice since it landed in the roastery. Grown by female producers in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. It works wonders in a flat white as the milk adds a delicious creaminess to those chocolate notes and makes it too easy to drink, also knowing that it's making a difference both locally and at origin brings me peace of mind.


La Morena is a coffee from Huehuetenango, on one of Guatemala’s three non-volcanic, highest and driest regions, which makes it one of the best places to grow coffee. It generates around 40% of all agricultural export revenue and almost ¼ of the population is involved in producing the 3.6 million bags of coffee Guatemala exports each year.

•300g water 
•Total brew time 4 minutes 
•Coffee to water ratio: 1:17 

1.Pre heat/rinse French press with hot water then discard water 
2.Place French press on the scales and tare
