- Don’t forget, if you go for a latte or a cappuccino, make sure it’s before 11am, anytime after is so not done.
The Percol difference isn't just the awards we win
Let's think about what makes great coffee. First put on your fine wine hat and consider how quality wines with real character tend to come from small family run vineyards.
Now you'll begin to see why Percol is so different to other coffees. For a start we don't source our beans from large commercial estates; instead we search out small plantations in different regions of Central and Southern America, often run by the indigenous population and benefiting from natural soil enrichment and microclimates that allow the coffee to develop its full, natural character. Where possible we choose Fairtrade coffee beans and buy from organic growers who carefully hand pick the red cherries just when they are ripe and perfect for harvesting.
Like wine, coffee oxidizes so we use sophisticated processing methods from roasting to packing to ensure that the beans do not come into contact withe oxygen. Little wonder then, that Percol produces some of the best tasting coffees you can buy.
The experts think so too; since 2002 Percol has won 27 industry awards.
