CUrrently, our Roaster’s Choice coffee is the:
This is a vibrant, sweet and juicy coffee and you can expect to find notes of blackcurrant, honey and orange.
It’s been produced by the Jowan Coffee Trading Co., which was founded in Nairobi in 2006 by the husband and wife team of Josphat and Rose. Jowam has made a name for itself in the speciality coffee world for some exceptional coffees, and this lot is no different. This is a mixed varietal coffee of Geisha, SL-28, SL-34 and Ruiru. It’s a fully washed lot, with an SCA score of 83.50.
The Kenyan coffee industry is very unique. Years of bureaucracy have created a system like no other (except for maybe Tanzania). A remnant of British colonialism, coupled with an influence from the tea trade, Kenya favours a weekly auction system for marketing its coffees. It is not possible to purchase directly from estates, and cooperatives also did not have the power to export directly. As such all coffee exported from Kenya has to pass through the hands of licensed exporters.
How do coffee subscriptions work?
Coffee subscriptions are a convenient way to ensure you get your daily caffeine fix. The process is straightforward and flexible. First, you choose your coffee and set your grind. Next, you select a subscription plan that suits your preferences, whether it’s a monthly or bi-weekly delivery. Once you’ve made your choices, your coffee is then freshly hand roasted to order, before the beans are then carefully packaged and shipped to your address. It’s a hassle-free and efficient way to enjoy speciality coffee without ever running out, and it allows you to explore different coffee varieties, origins, and profiles, enriching your coffee journey one cup at a time.
Here at Iron & Fire, we know you need flexibility and so we give you full control over your subscription – you are free to modify, pause or cancel at any time. Enjoy your perfect coffee on your terms.

The pros of coffee subscriptions
They save money
Brits are spending more money than ever on takeaway coffees, but you can save yourself some coins by making your own coffee with a coffee subscription. Indeed, coffee subscriptions are a brilliant way to save money and, let’s face it, who doesn’t want to save money right now? At Iron & Fire, you will get 10% off your coffee by purchasing a coffee subscription.
Plus, by ordering the exact amount of coffee you want and when you need it, you drastically reduce the chance of your coffee going to waste. Savings all round!
They save time
With an Iron & Fire coffee subscription, you save yourself the hassle of having to place a new order each time. When you sign up, your coffee beans will automatically be ordered and dispatched according to your instructions when you set the subscription up. Regardless of how easy it is to order our coffee, this is time you can now spend doing other important things… like drinking coffee.
They are convenient
You wearily trudge downstairs, still half asleep, and head straight to make your coffee – only to realise you’ve run out of beans! We’ve all been there at one point or another, and it sucks. But with a coffee subscription, you will never run out of coffee. That means no more last-minute trips to the shop! Your favourite coffee beans automatically delivered straight to your door – could it get more convenient?
They offer better coffee
It goes without saying that the coffee you’ll receive in a subscription from Iron & Fire is far more fresh than anything you can pick up at the supermarket. Considering the taste of your coffee is affected by the date it was roasted (and not a ‘best before’ date), it’s vitally important to get your coffee as fresh as possible. The best way to guarantee freshness is by purchasing your coffee from a roastery like Iron & Fire, and a subscription is the best way to purchase it!
Additionally, the Roaster’s Choice speciality coffee features some of our favourites and most popular coffees. They are sourced from the finest coffee-producing regions around the world and are roasted to give a full complex speciality taste. We have beans coming from the rich, fertile soils of Africa, Central America, and South America. Each region imparts its unique flavours to the beans, resulting in a coffee that is as diverse as its source.
The best part is that you will gain knowledge about the coffee that you receive, including the country of origin, the production method, the tasting notes, and the best way to make and drink it.
