Perfect for any milk-based beverage where the dark notes and tart acidity pair exceptionally well with the sweetness of milk.

    Brew recipes are a guide only

    Tips - Ecuador has a fair bit of roasted hazelnut and black currant flavour that can dominate the cup if extracted too tightly. Lingering in the background is a sweet and tart acidity, which works well in milk or dairy alternatives.
    Probably not the best choice as a black coffee if we are being honest, but for white coffee drinkers, this will go down a treat.
    Shorter extractions might tame the hazelnut unless that's your thing.

    How we roast your coffees

    light, medium or dark

    Each coffee in our store has a unique roast profile carefully engineered and continuously updated to achieve the best balance of flavor, body, complexity, acidity, sweetness and finish.

    It's a never-ending process with new lots arriving almost weekly along with the constantly changing Melbourne weather conditions.

    We don't use light, medium or dark as our guide. That's so outdated and quite frankly inaccurate with around 20 shades each of light, medium and dark.

    The external or outside color is never a true indicator of a coffee's cup attributes (or performance).

    In other words, coffee can appear dark outside but have under-developed internals (sour, flat, weak, thin, etc.) if it was roasted poorly.

    Similarly, a light exterior can easily mask or hide internal scorching or invalid roasting profile.

    The target for all of our coffees (excluding specific filter roast products that are intentionally roasted lighter) is medium.

    Think cafe style and coffee that is best suitable for espresso or traditional brewing devices.

    What's critically important to us is that we extract maximum goodness for you to enjoy.

    After 20 years and hundreds of thousands of batches, we think our Tier 1 infrastructure, skills and experience surpass the market.

    did you know about

    Ground coffee

    Ground coffee will lose around 80% of essential vitality after 15 minutes oxygen exposure. Even ground coffee inside of a sealed, unopened bag will stale considerably within 2 weeks.

    Some brewing applications, such as espresso, require roasted coffee in peak freshness to produce a delicious extraction. Other brew methods are less sensitive to the impact of staling coffee.

    To ensure freshness, we never hold, store or manufacture any ground coffees. All our coffees are packed as whole beans within 1hr of roasting to lock in freshness.

    When a customer orders ground coffee, we take fresh roasted beans, cut the seal, grind, clean and re-seal within 60 seconds. All at the moment your order is packed for dispatch.

    We recommend for the best coffee experience to consider purchasing whole beans and grind only enough to brew just moments beforehand.

      The best!

      Brilliant coffee for oat milk based flat white!

      Oat milk may overpower some coffees, but not this.

      I pull double shots with this coffee, lots of chocolate aromas and a fine balanced finish.

      This coffee is so good I’ll be experimenting with pressure profiling to further enhance the flavour.
