Coffee

Specialty coffees are those with a Quality Score of more than 80 points from the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCA). The Quality Score is based on a scale of 100 and is judged by licenced Q Graders on a variety of factors, which include sweetness, acidity, balance, mouthfeel and flavour.

Our hand-roasted, specialty coffees are available in 250g or 1kg bags starting at £7.95 each (including P&P) when you set up a recurring subscription.

You can also make a one-off purchase on bags of coffee through our online store, from £8.95.

We only charge you on the day of dispatch, so if you delay your order before the shipping date, you won’t be charged. 

Our coffee is best enjoyed within 6 weeks of the roast date listed on the bag. But remains fresh for up to 3 months. 

We recommend keeping your Fireheart coffee in a cool, dry place, away from heat or direct sunlight. Make sure to always keep it sealed in its bag, or in an airtight container.

Unfortunately, FairTrade can often simply mean paying coffee farmers the cost of producing the coffee and little else, that’s why we will always pay 50% above the rate of Fair Trade, and sometimes more. Paying more for quality is key to incentivising sustainable farming best practices and really making a difference.

Gaining organic certification is cost prohibitive for many farmers even though they operate using natural farming practices. We work closely with farms that produce exceptional coffee whilst supporting their local communities and the surrounding ecosystem within which they farm.

With all this in mind it is our intention to work towards Soil Association organic certification in 2021, watch this space. 

All of our coffee is sourced seasonally from sustainable farms around the world.

We always have a minimum of 5 coffees at Fireheart, we believe in quality not quantity. We only source coffee when in season, so the number of coffees we offer will depend on this.

If you’re buying fresh ground coffee from Fireheart this will depend on your brewing method, check our brew guides to see the one that suits your method here.

Yes, we sell decaf beans that have been processed using natural methods.

First, the beans are steamed and washed with water to increase moisture content.Then they get a ‘fermented sugar bath’ dissolving the caffeine, before being washed again and carefully dried. This preserves the beans original flavour, and can often increase sweetness in the cup, which is why we here at Fireheart have selected it over other methods.

Apart from getting freshly roasted seasonal coffee from Fireheart it’s all a matter of personal taste. Check out our brew guides here to see which one suits you. If you are still unsure or have questions, please contact our team here

Pods

Our pods are suitable for use with domestic drop through Nespresso® machines only, excluding professional machines, 'built in' models and the new Vertuo range.

Fireheart pods are designed to produce a 25ml (short) to 35ml (long) espresso shot.

Most pod machines are pre-programmed for Nespresso pods that produce anything from a 40ml (short) -110ml (long) therefore it's important you refer to your machine user manual to adjust the settings and recalibrate your machine, to avoid disappointment with the output.

If you have any questions, then contact us here.

The pod and lid are made from Vegemat a 100% bio-sourced material, 100% compostable and 100% plastic free that can be placed in your local authority food waste collection scheme for Industrial Composting. The pods will be broken down in between 6 to 9 weeks to become compost.

With that in mind you can put the pods in your home composter, but it may take 10 weeks to breakdown. This will depend on the temperature of your compost heap, the size and the microclimate.

All our other packaging including the pod box can be recycled in your paper recycling.

Fireheart Nespresso® Compatible Compostable Coffee Pods are hand roasted in London and ground and packaged in a protective environment for freshness.

Each capsule is individually protectively sealed and will have an 18-month shelf life from the roast date. Please check the box which the pods are shipped in for the best before date.

Like most dried goods we recommend storing your pods in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight.

Why not keep them in the Fireheart box they live in, so you get a pop of colour each time you open your cupboard.

Yes, you can - so you never need to run out again!
