Frequently asked questions

Every month we will select two 200-250g bags of whole bean coffees (~25 cups) from two different local UK roasters, matched to your taste profile.

You can choose a delivery frequency to match your needs, e.g., once every month or once every two weeks. Deliveries within the same month will receive the same selection.

The selection will be refreshed each month to spotlight different coffees and roasters. You will hear what's included in the next selection around two days before the next delivery.

Waaqa selects the best coffees roasters that are available locally in the UK, with an eye on passion and sustainability.

Hence, you'll be supporting local independents and their communities within the UK.

Your Waaqa exploration box will come standard with specialty whole bean coffees to maintain their freshness and flavour. Freshly ground coffee equals twice the taste! As soon as the beans are ground, up to 800 different aromas are released — yet after a few minutes, half of them vanish into thin air. That’s why, to get the most out of your unique speciality coffee, you should always grind it yourself and ideally just before preparing your coffee.

However, for your convenience we've also recently made a selection of our boxes available in ground for cafetière. This option will be highlighted on the box detail page.

Each Waaqa exploration box features 2 bags of 200-250g of whole beans. Depending on how strong you like your coffee, that's about 25 cups based on our recommendation for 18g prepared in a French Press.

Every month we select 2 different coffees from 2 local UK roasters to showcase in our exploration boxes. Each box selection is matched to a specific Taste Profile offering you exploration within the same taste family - yet 2 coffees will help you discover even more variety of blends, single origins as well as different flavour notes.

This depends very much on how many cups you enjoy every day and to maintain coffee freshness we would recommend choosing delivery frequency that suits you best. For example, if you enjoy 1 cup everyday, 1 box with 2 bags of 250g whole beans will last you approximately 4 weeks. For 2 cups a day, choose delivery every 2 weeks.

Each month the selection will be refreshed to spotlight different coffees and roasters but if you choose weekly or bi-weekly deliveries, you will get the same selection for all deliveries within the month.

If you're looking to grind enough for 1-2 cups at a time, a manual grinder with ceremic burrs is a good way to start enjoying beans - we recommend Hario “Smart G Transparent” or Hario "Skerton Plus Ceramic Coffee Grinder". If you're grinding for several cups and for more than one coffee lover, investing into an electric grinder is well worth the investment - a good option to check out is Wilfa “WSCG-2”.

We work closely with our roasting partners to ensure the coffee reaches you as quickly as possible after its roasting date. This is usually within few weeks, so it will smell and taste great.

We're passionate about coffee. To us, it's a gift from the heavens! In fact, that's how we found our name. The Oromo tribes of Ethiopia obviously loved it as much as we do, because they believed that any old plant can grow with sun and water, but coffee beans will only grow when watered by the tears of a God. Which God, you ask? That would be the Sky God - Waaqa.

We share our know-how and passion for the world of specialty coffee to help all coffee enthusiasts to keep exploring the best tastes, blends, methods and knowledge of coffee, with confidence.
