MEDIUM ROASTED

The process of roasting is what brings out the complex flavours and aromatics that make coffee so appealing to our senses.

The coffee we describe as medium roasted is a range that varies in colour and intensity according to the beans we are roasting.

Coffees in this range have a balance of fresh fruitiness and sweetness, with all of the complex fragrances and characteristics of their origin fully developed.

    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.

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.
