The Americas Bean
Our Americas bean is ethically sourced from a handful of Central and South American Countries, including Columbia, Brazil, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.
We are particularly proud to supply as our main coffee bean the Columbia Supremo. This bean is high grown (1700 to 2000metres) and produces the classic Columbian flavours, some chocolate – caramel green apple sweetness, cupping at around 84 points(speciality grade). These are arguably some of the best coffee producing countries in the world and we know you will enjoy the many types of roast we can provide.
Whole Bean or Ground?
Whole Bean – Whole bean coffee allows you to grind to your specifications. Coffee keeps for longer in whole bean form allowing you to purchase in larger quantities saving time and money. For those who don’t yet have a grinder read on….
Fine Grind – This grind size suits most espresso machines. However, espresso machines are all a bit different and they operate best with coffee that is ground to the fineness suited to the machine and other environmental conditions on the day. If this grind doesn’t give you the results you expect then consider moving to a home grinder down the track.
Medium Grind – Best suited for stove top or drip filter applications where coffee benefits from longer and often lower temperature extraction.
Coarse Grind – This grind size is suitable for plunger applications reducing the ‘sludgy’ texture that can result from coffee that has been ground too finely for plungers.
Size and Packaging
1kg, 500g, 200g Bag – Heat sealed, food grade specialty coffee packaging with one-way vent and rippa-zippa re-sealer which helps to retain the freshness of your coffee and enables longer in-bag storage.
