Current list of Coffees

Arabica beans are recognized as the coffee bean with the most taste. Like all fruits a type of fruit is only one way to categorize it. Arabica coffee trees have different varietals, in fact there are well over 140 of them. In coffee quality Arabica starts with a coffee that is shade and highland grown, then as a rule need to be handpicked, so that only the ripest coffee cherries are selected.

As a guide we have also grouped our coffees into three mouth feel, or what the body of the coffee is like:

  1. Easy Drinking – a coffee you can drink all day.
  2. Medium and Balanced – a coffee that has a little more body and can tolerate a little milk
  3. Dark and Bodied – a fuller bodied coffee that plays well with milk and sugar for those that like that.
  4. Limited Edition – A coffee that is available in a very limited amount so body is not as important as complexity.
  5. Other - All coffees that do not fit inm to the above category for some reason

We also examine the flavour complexity of a coffee, concentrating on the aromatics. The more complex the higher the stars. We will never offer anything as a single origin that scores less than 3 stars (out of 5) in complexity. A rough guide though has been that the smaller the sample base of the coffee the more complex it is.

Making the grade

We find our coffees tongue tingling, so what makes them so special:

  • We continually sample pure Arabica based coffee from a number of special growers and their representatives from around the world.
  • These coffees are typically shade and highland grown, in the tropics.
  • From those coffee we taste, we select only the finest specialty pure Arabica beans.
  • We roast each coffee to multiple roast levels and profiles and we taste it. Of the 100's we taste, we select a few that tingle our tongues the way it would tingle Frog Quaffer's.
  • Finally, from those that make our grade we roast them using a unique profile that we have identified exposes each coffee's unique nuances.
  • Importantly we cool the coffee down with air, slowly and gently so that the coffee retains all flavours.
