Frequently Asked Questions:

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. 

Why plant trees?

  1. Restoring animals’ habitats, which, in turn helps increase biodiversity by giving endemic species the chance to thrive
  2. Removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by putting it back into the plants and soil, and therefore helping to reduce global warming
  3. Cleaning the air by removing pollutant gases such as nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulphur dioxide and ozone by trapping these gases in their leaves and bark 
  4. Restoring local ecosystems that have been destroyed by deforestation or other external factors
  5. Reducing the impact of flooding and soil erosion, which helps to protect nearby communities and their livelihoods 
  6. Providing an income for tree planters in lower income countries.

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.

‘DIALLING IN’ OUR ESPRESSO

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 (single 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

Ultimate Starter pack. Excellent coffee.

Great tasting coffee, nice and smooth and not too strong. Ordering and delivery quick and easy. I will be placing more orders. I introduced my sister to it and she is going to buy some too. The coffee is so much nicer than the generic brands available from supermarkets. The starter pack is a good way to try out the different coffees.

Tasty Taster Pack

Really pleased with my first order from WBR. Quick delivery, only days after roasting. Well packaged, the coffee comes in genuinely resealable 250g bags, so easy to keep fresh. And most importantly it was delicious! Liked both blends, but prefer the Gold myself so that will be my next order. One happy customer!

Why not both

If you like me not sure which one will suit you, just try ultimate starter pack.
Then you will have the answer like my review title xx

Father’s Day present

Ordered this as a Father’s Day present and the smell when I opened the package was AMAZING!! My dad has tried the gold coffee and absolutely loves it, thank you

Great introduction to the company

This pack is a really nice way to try out what West Berkshire Roastery provide. Delivery was quick and the roasting date was the date of dispatch! All 3 coffees are very nice, though I preferred the Italian personally. I notice that since purchase they have changed from 3x 250g selections to 2x500g. So slightly less variety but slightly more coffee! Definitely recommended

First order, first success

We are still enjoying our first order from West Berkshire Roastery. Although our experience is limited, we feel that the customer service so far is excellent and is only exceeded by the wonderful coffee.

Amazing locally Roasted Coffee

I purchased the starter pack, to find out what’s the best coffee on offer from WBR. All three packs are fantastic. Great tasting coffee.
Looking forward to making my next order.

Thanks guys

A great way to try

As the new owner of a bean to cup machine I wanted to try a variety of roasts to see which works best for the machine. Sadly I can confirm they are ALL lovely - each with a distinct flavour from mild all day smoothness to wake you up and get you going punch. I cannot choose, they are all so lovely! If you have a coffee lover in your life who you don't know what to get for a birthday/Christmas/house warming present, then I can thoroughly recommend this as there is no way you can pick a bad coffee for however they like theirs.
