Product Description

After a long quest and a journey to Mount Kilimanjaro in 1960, our founder, Harold Higgins established a long-term relationship with the Chagga people who have been growing coffee since the 1920s to supply Tanzanian coffee back home.

This is a blend of Tanzanian AA Chagga with Colombia Supreme. The term ‘AA’ refers to the exceptional grade of the coffee. It refers to the specific, larger than normal bean size. Through quality farming, the coffee is graded through cascading layers of sieves, each decreasing in size. The green Tanzanian coffee beans are put through the sieves and rest on the grading tray which traps them from falling through. AA grade is usually within grades 16 and 18.

We roast this special coffee medium which lends a bright acidity and smooth aftertaste.

We recommend making it as a filter pour over. Use 18g fine ground coffee per 250ml water. Or alternatively, try it in a cafetiere. Use 1 dessertspoon of medium coarse ground coffee per 250ml water.


H.R. Higgins sources all of its coffee through long-established relationships with individual coffee farms, cooperatives and trusted coffee partners. In most cases, we have direct relationships with farmers which span decades.

Sustainability is a hugely important factor to us as a business and now, more generally in the wider coffee industry. The most important part of the entire
coffee process is that the coffee farmers, their families and their communities
all benefit from our relationships. Specifically, we work with farms that care for
the local environment, and support both their workers and their families. This is the first and most crucial step in the process of producing exceptional coffee.
