Each of our coffees offers a unique flavour, taste and mouthfeel. There is nothing quite like the taste of freshly roasted coffee. We only use Arabica coffee beans and roast in small batches to ensure freshness. Look out for our special blends offered during different times of the year.

We are mindful of the environmental impact of production and waste, we have carefully considered our packaging in the development of Ffa Da.

Create a Better Future for Coffee Farmers and Our Planet.

We only buy our green beans from suppliers who are committed to ensuring that all workers in their global supply chain enjoy safe and fair treatment in their workplace and comply with the modern slavery policy. Our choice of suppliers guarantees the farmers a sustainable future.

Let’s raise a REUSABLE cup of coffee to that!

The Ffa Da Roasting Process

Green coffee beans are placed in the hopper before entering the roasting drum

The beans begin by absorbing energy they become yellow and then start giving off heat

Caramalisation occurs as the beans begin to deepen in colour

A cracking noise is heard as the beans hit ‘First Crack’ and now the flavours begin

Now the beans are developing, we now need to find the sweet spot

Finally the roasted beans are dropped, cooled, bagged and enjoyed
