FAQ's & Storage

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.

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.

‘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 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

    More on the coffee farm - Peru Tunki:

    The name of Tunki comes from the locally found wild bird (also known as ‘cock of the rocks’) and is traditionally farmed by hand and produced without the use of pesticides or chemicals. 

    Situated high in the mountains amongst the most beautiful flora and fauna of the Tambopata Valley, the coffee beans are firstly fed and washed by pure spring waters and then harvested by the local indigenous Quechua and 'Aymara' speaking families. 

    This is globally one of the most difficult and logistically challenging of origins, with a hair raising 4 day journey that climbs to almost 5000m to cross the mighty Andes to get this coffee to port - a journey worth every step in our opinion.

    These proud families have worked the area for generations in harmony with the land. At the beginning of each season all farmers make an annual ceremony to the earth  'Pachamama'  to ask for blessings for the coming season.

    Region- Tambopata Valley, Southern Peru
    Growing Altitude- 1700 metres above sea level
    Variety- Bourbon
    Milling Process- Washed
    Aroma-  Floral, Sweet
    Flavour  - Milk Chocolate, Caramel
    SCA Score- 86

    Our producers receive a $0.66/KG organic premium, increasing their household income through organic farming practices. Shade grown coffee relies upon local hardwood trees, providing protection from deforestation and the loss of biodiversity.

    100% Arabica

    Resealable & recyclable bags. Once opened, consume within 4-6 weeks for best results and before best before date.

    Excellent coffee

    We have tried most of the various coffees, all of which have been excellent. We enjoy the fact that they - unlike many other brands - are not bitter, but with a round, lovely taste. Utterly delicious! Also, delivery is quick and efficient. Please keep roasting! 😊

    An experience not to be missed

    My friend Mario who’s knows a thing or two about coffee beans and finding the best supplier invited me to drop in and have a coffee. After he made me a cup of Signature Gold I decided to box up my pod machine and purchase a Sage. The taste of toffee and caramel was simply sublime. I have drunk some of WBR other coffees and they all have been exquisite. Also WBR’s service is exceptional

    Delicious

    Great service, the coffee arrived promptly, was well packaged and I liked the personal touch on the invoice. Tried it this morning- simply delicious 😋 Made an Americano with cashew milk for me and a cappuccino for my husband with regular cow’s milk. Both were fabulous- smooth, rich - like drinking liquid silk. Just what is needed to start your day. I will be buying again.
    I also contacted vendor to ask a question- super quick response, very impressive. I’d much rather buy from a small independent offering a quality service and product like this. Outstanding all round.
