This month is particularly special, a collaboration between Perky and their friends at The Bike Club.
The summer holidays are long, and they have worked together on a special summer survival pack to keep everyone going throughout August. Fuelled, of course, by this brilliant new coffee, dubbed Bike Club Brew.
Bike Club is one of those ideas you wish you'd thought of: kids bikes delivered directly to your door, exchanging for bigger bikes when they grow.

Ethiopia is considered to be the birthplace of the coffee plant and of coffee culture. It is thought that coffee was discovered in Ethiopia as long ago as the ninth century. Today, over 12 million people in Ethiopia are involved in the cultivation and picking of coffee, and coffee remains a central part of Ethiopian culture.
One common Ethiopian coffee saying is "Buna dabo naw". This literally translates to "Coffee is our bread". It demonstrates the central role that coffee plays here.
The arrival of the new crop from Ethiopia is (surely) every coffee lovers favourite time of year and we are delighted to showcase our first one this year as a Coffee of the Month. This coffee is a blend* of cherries produced by a collective of over 300 small scale farmers from the Guji area in the southern part of the country and processed by a local washing station, Hambela Dhekbor.
In the cup, this coffee displays very floral aromatics and we're getting lots of citrus and tropical fruit flavours all wrapped up in a sweet and creamy texture. A great companion for the end of the summer season!
