The morning coffee. It is a waking ritual. It is preparation; a way of getting ready for the busy day ahead. And when those days are particularly busy, coffee can become an essential survival tool, more precious than water. Not just for the energy boost, but the smell of freshly roasted coffee beans. The sound of a commercial espresso machine, or the hiss of frothing coffee. It doesn’t matter how you like your coffee. The experience of good coffee is just as important as the caffeine.
At Coffex, we understand that the morning coffee is one of those little things that makes the big things more bearable. So to start 2018, we take a look at some of the perfect Australian Coffee Beans to kick start 2018.
Natural and hand-picked from Colombia.
Colombia | J.Arcila
We start our pilgrimage with coffee beans meticulously hand-picked, and grown by Jairo Arcila in Finca Santa Monica. Developed by the Colombian Coffee Federation, this varietal was created to fight against leaf rust disease. This natural processing, combined with its location 1900-2200 metres above sea level, helps provide unique and distinctive notes. Specifically, affectations of blueberries, liquorice, sweet syrup and dark cherry.
RFA Certified blend out of Zambia
Zambia | Mafinga Hills
Straight from the Kateshi and Insanya estate comes the complex berry aftertaste of specialty grade coffee beans. Embracing the acidity, of lemon and lime, the citric flavours are balanced with facets of melon and raisins. This mix varietal is grown between 1300-1600 metres. This variance above sea level for either estate certainly contributes to the complexity of the blend, with the higher elevations creating denser beans and different flavours.
Good Coffee and education in Nicaragua.
Nicaragua | B.B. Candy
La Bastilla holds two coffee farms approximately 1350 metres above sea level and from them comes nuances of Blueberries, Zesty Lime, Pineapple, and Vanilla. Our love of such a balanced flavour is paired with appreciation for La Bastilla and their work with the Foundation of Rural Education and Entrepreneurship. A foundation that promotes education to the farms youth.
