Coffee Corner Showcase - Aleem

Personally, I really love the process of brewing coffee manually and this is reflected in our set-up: a Commandante C40 grinder with Red Clix; a Hario V60 and a La Pavoni Esperto Abile.

UK Best Coffee Subscription February Edition

February 2021 Coffee Guide

Welcome to February!  This month we are bringing in three new roasters for you to enjoy on the subscription alongside a returning long-time favourite.

First we head down to Oxford to showcase New Ground coffee and their fantastic social enterprise ethos. Then we cross the M62 to one of the UKs newest roasters, Sprudgie Nominated Blossom Coffee Roasters in Manchester. We then head back down to Winchester on the south coast to feature River Coffee Roasters before returning to London for the reappearance of Amoret and their lovely Art Deco bag designs.

January 2021 Edition of UK Best Coffee Subscription

January 2021 Coffee Guide

Happy New Year and welcome to 2021 - we were hoping that this year would provide a bit more normality for everyone, but it looks like we have a bit more time to wait for that.

This month we are brining in Redemption Roasters, Neighbourhood Coffee, the wonderful Luz Coffee Project in association with Caffeina Consulting and Blak Nektar from Glasgow.

Coffee Subscription Roast Profiles

Roast Profiles

For each coffee we include in the subscription we add a note to let you know what ‘profile’ it has been roasted to.  This will fall into one of three categories – Filter, Espresso or Omni – and we thought we’d give you a short overview about the three and why some roasters Omni-roast while other split their profiles.

The first rule of Dog and Hat is that there are no hard and fast rules to coffee – if you want to put a filter profile coffee through your espresso machine – do it - and if you want to put an espresso roast coffee through your V60 - that’s ok too.  Coffee tastes are such a personal thing, that you should always do what feels and tastes right for you but we’re on hand to help and guide when you need us.

Christmas Coffee Subscription and Gifts

Christmas 2020 Coffee Guide

Hat Dialled In Coffee Subscription. 

As is customary for us at this time of the year, all the roasters that are joining us this month are local(ish) so we can minimise delays by visiting the roasters in person to collect the coffee.  This year we'll be making a trip across the Pennines to Manchester before heading back to Leeds and home to North Yorkshire.

Eco Sustainability Coffee Bag Recycling

Coffee Bag Recycling

Great news - any of the used coffee bags that we have sent out as part of the coffee subscription service can now be returned to us for recycling.

Sustainability is a top priority for us here at Dog & Hat and we always try to avoid using any unnecessary supplies in the business. However, one area that has been troubling us for some time (and is largely out of our control) is the recycling of the used coffee bags themselves.

Our service obviously generates a large number of used coffee bags each month and we have been looking at ways we can reduce our environmental impact in this area. Up to now it has been just too costly for us to provide a solution but we have just partnered with Terracycle to help make this a reality.
