Our products are genuine ‘Specialty Grade’ coffees. Most are hand-picked, sun-dried, shade-grown, bird-friendly, organic, Rainforest Alliance, Cup of Excellence and/or Global Care
At any one time you might find sacks of beans in our store from places like Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatamala, Nicaragua, Panama, Mexico, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and northern areas of Australia. The best beans come from mountain regions. They are denser and require a longer roasting time. Beans grown at low altitudes can be roasted quickly, in a matter of a few minutes, because of their low density, but the taste is decidedly inferior.
Coffee is similar to wine. Coffee beans, like grapes, are affected by climate, altitude and soil. In fact, coffee is more complex than wine and those who appreciate the art are guided by fragrance, aroma, acidity, body and after-taste.
