The same healthy, clean, organic coffee as our House Roast, but roasted slightly darker for a smoother, more chocolatey tasting cup!
Our co-founder, Kirsty's favourite.
Our House Roast is lighter, and more fruity, whereas the Dark(ish) is perfect if you prefer a bolder tasting coffee with a creamier body.
If you drink it with milk also choose this as the flavour competes better with the milk and shines through.
Dark roasting coffee loses up to 90% of it's healthiest compounds hence why we only roasted ours dark(ish) to keep them locked in!

FAQs - health & performance
How can coffee be healthy?
Coffee comes from a fruit and like any other fruit is packed full of naturally healthy compounds. The most beneficial being polyphenols such as chlorogenic acid.
Through over roasting and poor handling these compounds are often significantly reduced in other coffees. Studies show up to a 31-fold difference between some cups of coffee!
During our unique process we sourced a bean naturally high in the healthiest compounds and roasted in a way that locks in as much of them as possible.
We also keep out the bad and our organic coffee also independently tested to be free from moulds, mycotoxins, pesticides and other nasties.
Do you add anything to Exhale coffee to make it healthy?
No we don't, because we don't need to!
A good quality coffee that's been treated right is as healthy as any other 'superfood' on the planet.
There's a modern trend towards taking poor quality ingredients (such as instant coffee) and adding whatever the latest fad, on-trend superfood is to make it 'healthy' again.
We instead took the care to (obsessively) look after every stage from farm to cup and work with the wonderful things naturally in our coffee already.
It definitely wasn't the easiest option, but it's the best one for you and the planet and that's what matters to us. 😁
Can’t I get health benefits from all coffees?
Yes you can, but multiple studies show the quantity of the healthiest compounds vary immensely from coffee to coffee.
In 2014 one study tested 104 espressos from cafes in Scotland, Italy and Spain and found a 31 fold difference between the highest and lowest concentrations of coffee's healthiest compounds, polyphenols!
Can’t I get antioxidants from other food in my diet?
Yes you can, but coffee is by far the biggest dietary source of them (taking serving size into account, i.e. you’re unlikely to eat 0.5kg of Tumeric with your breakfast).
In fact a 2004 Norwegian study showed that 66% of participants TOTAL DIETARY INTAKE of antioxidants came from coffee! This has since been confirmed in 6 other studies from across the globe.
Coffee makes me anxious or jittery, will Exhale coffee be any better?
It should... One study shows that polyphenols counteract the negative effects of caffeine, reducing anxiousness. So a high polyphenol coffee like Exhale should reduce the jittery effects from caffeine.
A lot of our customer have reported this (just search for jitters or anxious in our Trust Pilot reviews).
However, everyone is unique so it’s impossible to say for certain how you will react. And if you're really worried then we also do a cracking decaf.
I’d love to know how you get on so please drop me an email on email@example.com if you do try it.
Will Exhale coffee make me perform better?
Yes. It's true.
Caffeine is one of the few scientifically proven 'ergogenic aids to performance'. Meaning it will help you preform better, on average 11-12% better according to 2x meta-analyses!
However, unlike other coffees, Exhale coffee is also high in polyphenols which studies have shown can improve both sprint and endurance performance.
So in Exhale coffee the caffeine and polyphenols work synergistically to give you a double performance boost! Win win!!
Is Exhale coffee mould and mycotoxin free?
It is indeed. We test every shipment of our coffee at an independent lab for pesticides, mould, yeasts, mycotoxins and heavy metals to verify the coffees absolute purity.
It is then stored in GrainPro ultra-hermetic sealed bags in a temperature controlled environment.
Most supermarket bought coffees were roasted and ground months before you buy them leaving them likely to stale and open to contamination. All our coffee is roasted fresh weekly to make sure you’re drinking the freshest, cleanest possible brew.
FAQs - sustainability
Is Exhale coffee as healthy for the planet as it is for people?
We try our best to make sure it is.
Health, taste AND sustainability were genuinely equally prioritised at every stage of our process.
So technically there could be a healthier coffee out there (shhh!) but perhaps it didn't pay a fair price to the farmer, or was grown with chemical pesticides.
Is your packaging environmentally friendly?
It's as good as currently exists... all our coffee is delivered in compostable, plastic free packaging, and all the paper we use is from FSC Certified renewable sources.
We're always looking for more environmentally friendly ways to package our coffee so please let us know if you have any suggestions!
What other measures do you take to protect the environment?
We only buy from organic farms because coffee is the 3rd most sprayed crop in the world with pesticides and our ecosystem is polluted with far too many of them already.
We donate 2% of our revenue to charities which restore the natural environment (1% through 1% For The Planet).
Out team are an Ecologi Climate Positive Workforce and we all cycle or run to work!
You're B Corp Pending, what does that mean?
B Corps are a new wave of company that use business as a force for good.
It means we're legally obliged to equally prioritise our impact on people and the planet alongside profits.
We're currently certified 'Pending' but filed our full application in February scoring over 120 on their scale (80 is a pass).
