All our staple coffees are 100% naturally grown, free of synthetic pesticides and herbicides. This includes Signature Gold, Rich Italian & Black Gold. 

What strength is the coffee?

We advise this coffee to be a strength of 3.5 out of 5. Punchy but not over powering. 

Are the beans oily? 

No, these beans are not oily, if you have particularly sensitive machine/equipment, these beans should be perfect. 

Where to store the coffee?

We recommend storing the coffee in a cool, dark, dry cupboard, before you open them. Once opened, reseal the bag and they can be safely stored in the packaging, and we recommend to consume them within 4 weeks of opening.

How many coffees do the bags serve?

250g - serves 13-15 coffees. 500g - serves 26-30 coffees. 1kg - serves 55-65 coffees. We recommend one kilo bag to serve 2 coffees a day, to last a month.

What's the best before date?

All our coffees are roasted to order, meaning they couldn't be fresher. We advise a best before date of 6 months from the order date. 

    Espresso Brew Guide

    Brewing espresso is a lot like brewing tea; if we leave our bag in too long we risk over-brewing the tea and extracting “stewed” bitter flavours from the leaves but if we do not leave it long enough our tea risks being weak and insipid. This means we must exert control over our brewing process to ensure that we extract all of the desirable flavour compounds whilst leaving behind the compounds responsible for unwelcome bitterness and astringency. This is easy with a teabag – we can take it out whenever we choose – but achieving the same control with espresso is slightly more complex.

    Coffee does not extract homogenously during its brewing cycle. Most extraction occurs during the first third of its brew time. Typically fruit acids and bean fragments that contribute towards body extract first, followed by sugars, and then bitter compounds.


    Understanding your grinder is the key to achieving desirable DOSE and BREW TIME. Whether you are using a modern “on-demand” grinder or a more traditional “dosing grinder” you should be able to control both DOSE and GRIND TEXTURE, both of which are critical to brewing balanced espresso. Here’s how...

    Using scales, weigh a consistent dose of ground coffee into your double espresso basket -16g - 18g is a sensible choice for most espresso machines.

    Aim for 36-40g of liquid espresso or roughly a ratio of 1:2 (18g of ground espresso to 36g of liquid espresso). 

    Is it within your target brew time window? We recommend 20 - 30 Seconds.

    Yes = SUCCESS!

    Your espresso is probably well brewed and should taste full, sweet and balanced.

    No = If you haven't extracted 30-40ml of liquid espresso, in 20-30 seconds, your grind is too FINE and your espresso will most likely taste thin, bitter & ashy.

    Coarsen your grind slightly then grind and discard at least 20g of coffee to remove traces of the previous grind setting

    No = If you have extracted too much liquid espresso (over 30ml for single espresso, over 60ml for double). Your grind is too COARSE and your espresso will most likely be weak and sour.

    Make your grind slightly FINER then grind and discard at least 20g of coffee to remove all traces of the previous grind setting

    Brazil Fazenda Terra Preta:

    Paulo Bernardes has been growing coffee at Sitio Serra Negra for over 30 years. He lives there with wife Maria, but also shares his land with his 2 sons, a family always working together. Typically the men take care of farm, picking and other works in the field, while Mrs. Bernardes takes care of processing and maintenance. With a relatively low production compared to the big farms in this region, Sitio Serra Negra is focused on quality to differentiate itself in a competitive environment.

    History of Coffee in Brazil:

    American colonists had been drinking coffee for fifty years before the first coffee seed was planted in Brazil in 1727. A hundred years later, Brazil accounted for 30% of the world’s coffee supply. A hundred years after that, in the 1920’s, Brazil held a virtual monopoly, producing 80% of the world’s coffee.

    Although Brazil’s market share peaked at 80% in the 1920’s, its continuing status as the world’s largest coffee producer still gives the country considerable influence on the market and coffee prices.

    It is said that when Brazil sneezes, the coffee world catches cold. In 1975, a “black frost” destroyed over 70 percent of the crop in Brazil and coffee prices doubled world-wide. Brazil was a founding member of the Pan-American Coffee Bureau, which invented the concept of a “coffee break,” during an advertising campaign in the early 1950’s.

    Once opened, consume within 4-6 weeks for best results and before best before date. Unopened lasts for 6 months. Best kept in cool dry environment.
