Specialty Coffee by definition, means no ordinary bean can make the grade.
Credit where credit is due, our partners work hard to cultivate only the best coffee beans. To guarantee our beans are at their flavourful best, the cherries are handpicked, but only when they’re perfectly ripe. This allows their natural characteristics to blossom and be preserved. We don’t believe sub-standard beans should ever exist, especially not hidden away in our specialty coffee blends. We pride ourselves on the fact that we only ever use specialty grade beans in our coffee. This includes all of our blends, all of our single origins and of course, our flagship Superior Blend. And this will never change.
Once the beans make it into the hands of our expert roasters, it’s time to really bring out the quality in flavour. We spend a great deal of time roasting, testing, cupping and assessing the beans to ensure every roast has the right balance and flavour profiles shining through. We repeat this process again and again, until we’re convinced it’s just right, each and every time. And even after this rigorous process, we still cup every morning – without fail. Years on, it remains our favourite part of the day. The morning just wouldn’t be right without it.
