A great cup of coffee is one of the simple pleasures in life. I prefer a medium roast and Percol’s Lively Latino beans make a great cup. Organic, fair trade, 100% Arabica beans have been roasted to perfection then delivered in 200g bags made from recyclable plastic.

Percol is an ethical, reputable longstanding company well-known for their ground roasts and instants made with Fair Trade, high quality and often organic coffee beans. The Lively Latino 100% Arabica beans live up to their standing reputation and produces a delicious cup of filter coffee for the conscientious coffee connoisseur looking for a balanced, rounded everyday blend. Highly recommended.

About Percol

“Our entrepreneurial founder Brian Chapman was a coffee enthusiast and a keen traveller. Right from the start, we wanted to bring the best tasting coffee from around the world to the UK while always making sure that we give back to the farmers and environments that grow our delicious beans.

For over 25 years, we’ve built great relationships with coffee producers around the world, from Central and South America to Indonesia, and we spend over 150 days a year at the farms getting to know the farmers and their land. Our long-term approach means that our brilliant producers, old and new, receive the support they need to continue to grow our wonderful coffee.” Read more on Percol’s About Us page.
