We’re making up for lost time by tucking into our late arrival Africa coffees.
Well, it’s been one hell of a year for all of us, and before we ask 2020 to kindly leave, we have come up with a few ways to counter act the year that was.
Who doesn’t want a smashable cold one in summer!? Cold brew coffee could be our answer to a morning schooner... and you can still drive to work. So here’s a little more about cold coffee & how to go about brewing it. (more…)
Indonesia’s humidity is in part responsible for the tendency to adopt the ‘wet hulled’ process that you are probably familiar with. It’s the process by which coffee is pulped and then dried down to 35% moisture, before hulling takes place when soft and dry. But rest assured that this is not all the region has to offer.
It’s no secret that a good cup comes from a good crop. Even the best roasters in the world – yes exactly, like Single O’s Ed, Stu and Dan – are at the mercy of the quality of the green bean. Which is why, along with meeting sustainability criteria, rewarding with fair prices, supporting a range of producer organisations including entrepreneurial individuals, co-ops and progressive estates, and buying to meet our desired flavour profiles, we meticulously search for high quality.
INTRO TO GRINDING
Nailing your grind is fundamental to a great tasting brew and although we offer pre-ground options for all our coffees (online and at the café), we recommend grinding fresh to get the most out of your cup – there’s a whole flavour wheel of tastes to enjoy after all! (more…)
REUSABLES ARE BACK ON THE MENU
Corona’s knocked us all sideways in more ways than we could name… & whilst staying open & serving take-aways has kept us sane & solvent, we’re more than keen to pick-up where we left off with our collective fight against single-use.
