Rich and balanced

As a blend for milk-based drink, I like the rich, balanced and consistent flavour that these beans produce. It is certainly not an blend with exotic notes such as wild berries but nonetheless a very enjoyable and sophisticated experience.

Not to my taste. Fruity, best black.

Very fruity. I found it awkward drinking with milk. Probably best black. I will try other beans/brands next time.

Just brewed our first coffees - amazing

It's taken us a while to get to these beans, as we had to get through our open ones first, but wowser! They taste amazing, with Milk, Soy or even black! Will definitely purchase again

All coffee is sold as whole beans. If you would like your coffee ground please leave a note at checkout.

Candyman is our flagship espresso blend, launched in 2010 and still going strong!

A combination of our favourite in-season coffees put together to create sweet, balanced espresso, with or without milk.

Served Black: grape, plum, lemon pastry, dark chocolate
With milk:  sweet, malted milk, macadamia butter

Components are frequently rotated to ensure broad consistency of the taste profile, cycling through direct purchases from the same producers who also make up our favourite featured “single” coffee products.  Candyman features the following coffees:

11th January onwards:

  • Paulino Ramirez (Huehuetenango, Guatemala)
  • Antonio Medina (Chimaltenango, Guatemala)
  • Ahmed Abatemam – Honey processed (Agaro, Jimma, Ethiopia)
  • Asegedech Sholi Natural (Gedeb, Ethiopia)

19th January onwards:

  • Santos Ramirez (Huehuetenango, Guatemala)
  • La Argentina Neighbours blend (Huila, Colombia)
  • Ahmed Abatemam – Honey processed (Agaro, Jimma, Ethiopia)
  • Asegedech Sholi Natural (Gedeb, Ethiopia)

Pricing transparency:
It’s important to us that blends comprise quality ingredients that are proudly identified and no less wholesomely purchased. To take just one example – the Colombian purchases present in Candyman are super sweet, clean and well-processed, but simply do not possess the distinguishing characteristics (or volume) that enable us to feature them on their own. We paid an average of 2,200,000 pesos per carga (125 pounds of parchment coffee, this is the unit farmers sell their coffee in) for these coffees when we purchased them during September 2021. At the time the market price was close to 1,900,000 pesos per carga. For context, here is a link to the daily carga market price:
