A bean like you’ve never seen

Deep dive into what separates our coffee from everyone else

Coffee is our specialty

And we only offer ‘specialty’ coffee. But what is specialty coffee, you ask? Easy: specialty coffee is coffee that's gone through rigorous testing, approved by the coffee gods, and is signed and sealed on it's way to be the best cuppa you can buy.

Processing, roasting & grinding

The bit more

When it comes to our beans, we treat ‘em right. In fact, if you didn’t know, the entire process of ‘treating’ beans involves how one roasts and grinds the green beans they receive. This treatment (also known as processing) is the difference between okay coffee and killer coffee.

Dive into the deets on the true behind-the-scenes of what goes into roasting and grinding the best of the best:

Sourcing the finest coffee

The bit more

Whenever we look at adding a new coffee to our line-up, the process actually begins months and months (sometimes even years) before. The reason for this is we take the sourcing of our coffee extremely seriously. Each coffee you sip on has gone through rigorous source-roasting sampling; think hours and hours on end of us experimenting with the exact recipe and sipping each batch until it’s caffeinated perfection.

Quality at all costs

The bit more

Like most things in life, the greater the difficulty, the larger the reward. That's why we source our coffee across 4 continents, 9 countries, and 16 regions. Scared of heights? Hope not. Slopes of dormant volcanoes. Deep jungle. Mountainous terrain. Pack your bags because you're going to the farthest ends of the Earth if you want to find what fuels your day. You'll need to ascend to precise altitudes between 900 - 1800 m (3,000 - 6000 ft). It's only here hot days and cool nights extend the arabica cherry's growth, giving it more time to develop and ripen, creating a more refined and complex flavour. These are the extremes one must go to, to source the best.

When working with coffee farmers, we deal with them directly. Working directly means the quality is controlled, and sustainability can be ensured, as a larger percentage of the money goes directly to the farmer and workers.

Single origin

The bit more

Just like the perfect partner (or ideal lifestyle, you independent queen), the perfect bean is hard to find. It can take months, even years, to find the perfect place, plantation and preparation method before it makes it onto our shelves and into your pantries. Which is why, when we really get it right, it becomes a single origin.

That's not to say that single origin coffee is any better than coffee blends (we love all of our brews equally, of course), it just means that, like fashion, the difference comes in taste.

Arabica beans

The bit more

We’ve all heard of the terms Robusta and Arabica beans. Instant coffee may be the first thing that springs to mind when thinking about Robusta beans. Conversely, the coffee from your beloved local café is very likely serving Arabica beans. Why do you pay more for Arabica beans? For one, the taste. Robusta is typically known for having a bitter, burnt taste, which is due in large part to its high caffeine content (~2.7%). Caffeine being bitter, of course! But, we hear you; you might be saying, “Hey, but I love my caffeine high!”

Don’t worry; the caffeine content in Arabica beans (~1.5%) is more than enough to give you those all-too-familiar hand tremors. There’s also a much higher fat and sugar content in Arabica beans that contributes to its deliciousness. It’s like an energy-inducing hamburger that won’t make you fat. Sold!

All about altitude

The bit more

What’s up? Your coffee! When it comes to yielding a delicious (and high-quality) kinda cuppa, altitude plays a major role in determining a coffee’s flavour profile. We can also thank other parts of Mother Nature's nuances for perfecting our coffee pods; like humidity, climate, wind, harshness and directness of sunlight. Oh, and FYI, we label the altitude of each of our coffee boxes on the side panel, so you can know what’s up with your brew too.

For those curious as to what it actually means and how it translates to better coffee in your cup, this article is for you. (Keep in mind this is after we’ve sourced the coffee. You can read more about our process for that here.) Ok! Let's dive in.
