COFFEE SELECTION MADE SIMPLE
Sometimes it can be tough to wade through the muddy waters of origins, tasting notes and processing to find the beans you are looking for.
To help you on your way, we've created a little guide to selecting your coffee
Sweet, Balanced, and Gentle.
Smooth and deep with notes of chocolate and nuts. Great for your daily coffee and when making pots for your friends and family.
Fruity and sweet.
These coffees are full of fruit notes and character. Often natural or honey processed, this means more of the characteristics from the coffee cherry – think fruit and sugar - make their way into the cup.
Light and Bright.
These coffees have a strong, acidic backbone. They are likely a meticulously washed coffee, which means clean, clear flavour notes.
Exotic and exciting.
These coffees will be packed with intense and wild flavours and should elicit an appreciation for just how unique and intriguing a cup of coffee can be. Often containing exotic varietals or part of new or experimental processing methods such as anaerobic or yeast fermentation.
Our current go-to espresso that we would be pulling in the shop - if we were not for Covid-19! - is the Guatemala La Colmenita and the Colombia Gran Galope. The Guatemala is straight-ahead chocolate and sweetness with a pleasing, lingering finish. The Colombian Gran Galope has notes of chocolate and citrus and does well in smaller milk drinks like cortados and flat whites.
We also love pulling the Costa Rica Santa Teresa and the Burundi Nyagishiru Natural. They both tend towards the side of being a fruit bomb of an espresso and are lovely if those are the notes you are craving and you enjoy dialing-in and refining your espresso.
