The Beans

The heart of the cup

The beans we use at Harris + Hoole change regularly depending on the season.

The coffee bean is the seed of a fruit that is grown in the mountains. Harvested every year, it is at its best within a couple of months of the harvest. For this reason our coffee blend changes throughout the year to ensure you're getting the best coffee possible.

Our coffee is directly traded by Union Hand Roasted and roasted at their premises in East London. All our beans are speciality grade, meaning they have been graded at least 84 points out of 100. We are the only coffee shop on the high street to deliver a standard like this.
