FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I choose a coffee that's right for me?
First think about what flavour profile you like. All of our coffees have tasting notes as a guide. Rule of thumb, if you’re looking for espresso style, full body, rounded flavour a blend would be ideal, and single origins love to be brewed either cold or in French press or pourover. If you have any questions, one of our Coffee Experts will be more than happy to help.
How do I choose the right grind setting when ordering coffee?
1: Select Beans if you have a grinder, or a bean to cup machine and that way you can grind when required and keep the coffee fresh
2: Select Grind for Espresso / Stove Top (Fine grind) for espresso machine or stove top moka pot
3: Select Grind for PourOver/Plunger/Filter (Medium to Coarse) for dripolator, percolator, pour over, or plunger/French press
4: Select Grind for Aeropress (Medium) suitable for Aeropress
5: Select Grind for Cold Brew when brewing with cold water
What's the best way to store coffee?
We recommend storing your coffee in an airtight container at room temperature and out of direct sunlight. Keep it away from other strong smelling pantry items such as curry powder or vinegar. This will help keep your coffee as fresh as possible and tasting great!
What do you mean by fresh roasted coffee?
Whole bean coffee maintains peak flavour for two to three weeks after roasting. HACCP Food safety regulations stipulate that coffee has a 2 year shelf life and although it's safe to drink it won’t taste too good! Best to consume within 3 months of roasting.
