A marvellous naturally processed Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Grade 1 roasted using a profile to suit precise demands for a premium quality filter style (lighter roast) coffee.

As a lighter style roast, more commonly referred to as "filter style", the coffee is ideal for modern or alternative brewing devices such as filter, drip, pour-over, V60, syphon, Aeropress, and immersion.

Pure espresso enthusiasts with good equipment (machine and grinder) and extraction techniques can enjoy this lighter roast thoroughly washed Yirgacheffe.

Our specialized platform uses a unique roasting process using lower temperatures and shorter roasts. 

Enjoy our delicious, high-quality filter coffee that will satisfy your taste buds.

This customized roasting platform enables a lighter roasted coffee to present with sufficient flavour, sweetness and acidity to ensure proper roast profile development without suffering the effects of grassy, woody or herbal flavours from an under-roasted coffee.

However, filter-style roasts will deliver higher and sweeter acidity, greater fruit complexity and increased clarity of flavours.

For customers desiring a traditional milk-based espresso beverage with dairy or dairy alternatives added, please consider selecting our full-washed Ethiopia Yirgacheffe products available in the store, roasted in the conventional espresso style.

Brew recipes are a guide only

Espresso brew recipe

Espresso brew recipes assume professional or commercial equipment (machine in grinder) are used.

For domestic (consumer) grade, please ensure you adjust the suggested values accordingly.

Dose - 20 - 22 grams

Yield - 39 grams

Brew Time - 26 seconds

Ratio - 1 : 1.65

Tips - Light-roasted coffees, e.g. filter roast are more difficult to dial in for espresso extraction than medium-roasted espresso coffees.
Then there is also an added complexity of a sun-dried, full-natural Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Grade 1 which tends to swell more compared to full-washed coffees.
But don't be discouraged. A coffee that will pop your coffee cherry, bursting with sweet fruity compote flavours. Aromatics are "off the scale" intoxicating.
As there are far too many different recipes for alternative brewing, we are just going to list our preferred espresso formula.
Please be mindful of dose and grind as this coffee will bloom and swell during pre-infusion at a significant rate - hence, it may require a lower dose and coarser grind for espresso extraction.

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.

    So much better than the rest.

    We are travelling around Oz and filter brews are our goto coffee. Tried this whilst we were visiting cousins in Melbourne for a week. Superb coffee and better than anything we had bought elsewhere. Now to work out how we can keep on ordering on our road trip.
