Joe assesses a new coffee for aroma & taste
A Colombian sample roast is ready for cupping
It is an agricultural product and like a wine grapes, coffee inherits distinctive characteristics depending upon its botanical species, geographic origin, altitude, growing conditions, cultivation and processing methods.
Joe, our head roaster, spends a great deal of time roasting and tasting samples of specialty grade Arabica beans from annual harvests to evaluate flavour, acidity, body and aroma of each unique crop. The flavour profiles must meet our uncompromising standards to then be selected for our coffee offering.
Following green bean selection, the next steps of roasting, blending and cupping are measured and precise to ensure our roasted coffee retains every flavour characteristic and is always consistent. The country where a coffee is grown, denotes origin and the flavour from these coffees is pure and distinctive to the region. Our single origin offering changes monthly depending on harvest and availability. These come from small growers and estates or co-ops and feature flavour characteristics of distinction. Filter brewing truly accentuates the unique taste of these coffees.
Our selection is available to purchase online, the Allpress Roastery Cafe in Sydney and Melbourne or at select cafes and specialty retail stores.
