Dog and Hat Coffee Subscription Box 6

Happy Blogmas Day 13
It's time for the October box from Dog and Hat. 

We have another two great roasters in this months box. 
Unorthodox Coffee Roasters
Rounton Coffee Roasters.

Unorthordox Roasters
In 2015, the Unorthodox Roasters spent over 10 months in all the major producing countries in South and Central America: Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala... then eventually we returned, laced with enthusiasm, to set up a roastery in Scotland.
What began as a crazy idea has now transpired into a reality. Now we roast coffee for a living. We put all of our effort into continuous improvement of our cafes and products. We create an atmosphere that keeps people coming back for more. 
Our staff have cordiality. Our cafe has character. Our coffee has attitude.
