COFFEE OF JULY: BRASIL

Brasil Fazenda California This double ferment coffee is challenging the way we think of coffee from this region.  Those who have sampled a few coffees from Brazil in their time, would not argue that Brazilian coffees typically have a flavour profile that consists mostly of nuts and dark chocolate.   In recent years, experimental processing methods […]

FIKA IN JULY!

Hej! Hur går det? Välkommen till mitten av vintern! It’s the kind of weather to get back to some swedish fika roots don’t you think? They know the cold. They soldier on. They look snow in the eye and say ‘Not today.’ That’s not true. Maybe they do but it snows anyway, and they carry […]

FIKAPAUS: JUNE EDITION

Winter in Australia is a time and place like no other. Where I live especially – right next to bushland, the heat of summer has burrowed deep into the trees, light glows like ember from the white eucalypt bark, and gum leaves like red and green feathers mimicking the lorikeets, or the other way around. […]

ROUTINE AND HIDDEN TREASURE

It’s Tuesday (for narrative purposes). You know this because Marg is wearing her puffy sleeved chequered blouse, tapered ankle length slacks in emerald green and New Balance sneakers. You know her name is Marg because you’ve heard “Thanks Marg, your skim cap is ready!” at least 398 times. She’s a newbie. Though she is unaware, […]

FIKAPAUS: APRIL EDITION

The word ‘crisp’ is charming and quaint. It’s only regular uses that I’m familiar with are either as a noun, as in, a potato crisp, or as an adjective. The former conjurers up delicious salty crunchy things and darling English accents, and the latter is really only ever used to describe a clear Autumn morning. […]

COFFEE OF THE MONTH: DR CONGO

In recent years DR Congo is re-emerging as a coffee origin.  This is the 3rd crop we have purchased in as many years and the region is showing us what it is capable of.  Many small cooperatives are now in action and working together to increase the quality of their coffee.  This coffee is from […]

HOW DOES WATER TEMPERATURE AFFECT YOUR ESPRESSO?

Water is a somewhat necessary part of our existence, and unless you eat coffee your beans straight out of the bag, it’s a necessary part of a coffee’s existence. It’s a complex topic, very scientific, definitely getting into some high brow coffee snobbery with chemical equations and variables and such and so forth, so we’ll […]
