eightpointnine.com: gourmet coffee delivered straight to your door

eightpointnine.com is a UK based artisan coffee company that sells delicious fairtrade coffee to customers who believe in great organic quality and fantastic taste. They call themselves Eightpointnine because their extensive testing has deduced that for the average 160ml cup of coffee, the perfect amount of coffee is 8.9g.

Coffee from the supermarket is bulk produced and designed for a long shelf-life. Despite words like ‘artisan’ or ‘hand-roasted’, you’re sharing that bag of coffee with the other fifty thousand folk who buy it at their local supermarket.

At eightpointnine, they don’t like old, mass-marketed coffee. They believe that fresh coffee tastes better and had the idea that people should be able to design a coffee made especially for them – and have it delivered fresh every week. Coffee is a personal thing – and a great cup of coffee is something worth shouting about.

All eightpointnine coffee is fairtrade sourced and small-batch roasted here in the UK. Their roast-masters are among the most experienced in the business, with over twenty years experience developing long-term relationships with coffee growing communities around the world.

Their coffee is blended and shipped from their Cotswold production centre in letter-box sized boxes, for now only in the UK. Inside the box they include a small tasting card to give their customers an idea of what to expect from their chosen coffee blend and instructions on how best to enjoy it.
