coffee

"As dark as the devil, as hot as hell, as pure as an angel and as sweet as love"

We've been roasting the world's best coffee in our 2kg San Franciscan roaster since 1994, resisting the temptation and logic of roasting on a more commercial scale, to stand by the philosophy that we can bring out the best in any coffee working this way. To give some context, each batch produces just enough for 8 supermarket size packets. Often, one roast is taken entirely by one customer!

We believe we have curated the largest range under one roof, offering some of the rarest and most prestigious beans from every country that grows high-quality coffee.

The best tip we can offer to enhance your enjoyment of any coffee you try is to suggest that you grind your own beans freshly as required.

    At Skybury Plantation, they grow Bourbon and Catuai varieties of Arabica Coffee. They have created a unique coffee wet processing which highlights the great taste of the coffee. Having one of the world's most sophisticated processing facilities, they can 'shape' the flavour of the coffee and achieve taste profile elements found in other processing styles, or create their own uniquely Australian style. With this 'Supreme' lot they have left a small amount of the mucilage on the beans by interrupting the fermentation process. Fermentation is followed by a high-speed wash which locks in flavour and allows the bean to absorb the remaining mucilage. When this coffee is roasted, the mucilage 'caramelises' and releases a sweet, chocolatey flavour. It is a light-bodied coffee and slightly lower in caffeine than average. Artisan roasted in our 2kg micro-coffee roaster.

    We select a single origin speciality coffee that is complemented by the addition of natural vanilla flavouring. Bourbon vanilla flavoured coffee is a rich and indulgent blend that tantalizes the senses with its complex aroma and luxurious taste. From the moment the coffee is brewed, a warm and inviting scent wafts through the air, reminiscent of freshly baked pastries and sweet vanilla. As you take your first sip, the boldness of the coffee is immediately apparent, with its smooth and robust flavour providing a strong foundation for the delicate vanilla notes to dance upon. The vanilla flavour is at once subtle and profound, imbuing each sip with a creamy and almost buttery sweetness that lingers on the tongue.

  9. Colombia La Esperanza Competition Winning Coffee
    Out of stock
    This limited edition coffee is a competition winner, and was scored a massive 89 by the independent coffee graders of the SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association of America), making it amongst a handful of coffees worldwide with such a high score. Flavour and aromatics described by the SCAA were red wine, passion fruit, vanilla and chocolate. The reason for the complexity and quality of this coffee is to do with it being made by a very labour intensive process, practised in just a few farms in the world, called anaerobic natural. Once set in special tanks, the lid is sealed so it is devoid of oxygen and left for 168 hours. After fermentation, the coffee cherries are left 48 hours for dehydration and then pass to solar dryers for 6 – 7 days depending on the weather until the dry cherries reach a moisture level of 11 to 12%. This captures all the potential flavours in the coffee and unsurpassed sweetness.
