Our specialty filter coffee offering is perfect for those, who want to offer their customers a premium, small batch roasted coffee, without having to invest in espresso equipment.

Character in your cup

We invest untold time and shared energy into showing people the myriad of characteristics found in specialty coffee.

Every origin of bean carries its own unique qualities. Much like grapes, it can be identified by its terroir; the sun exposure and altitude impart their subtle characteristics into the fruit of the coffee tree, as much the varietal and processing.

In roasting coffee we build layers of flavour, working with our green beans, sometimes pushing or manipulating the properties, to achieve the desired balance of sweetness, acidity, body and flavour in the cup.

Why filter coffee?

Some establishments may find it more appropriate to offer filter coffee.

The far more gentle brewing methods of coffee preparation, lend themselves perfectly to appreciating the delicate nuances to be discovered in coffees from a ‘single origin’.

  • It can be easier to prepare a good quality filter brew - it has more margin for error than espresso.
  • The cost of required brewing equipment is also vastly reduced, when compared to an espresso station - the biggest investment is a suitable coffee grinder. 

Everyone loves a good story

Our evolving library of Single Origin coffees carries with each of them a unique story or provenance, that the coffee aficionado, and increasingly, general public would be delighted to hear about.
