Intrepid Fairtrade Beans

Our intrepid coffee experts went to Central & South America and came back with the pick of the crop from the Fairtrade Farmers of the region.

Passionate about quality coffee, they grow hardy beans wich allows us to roast them very dark, giving an intense coffee flavour with hints of hazelnut & cocoa. 

This coffee will taste its best when freshly ground, so only grind as much as you need at any one time; fine for espresso or medium for plunger or filter.

Preparation

Plunger - Use one heaped dessertspoon of medium grind coffee per cup, pour in hot, not boiling, water, and stir. Leave for 3 minutes before plunging to infuse all the flavours, then enjoy.


Filter -Use one dessertspoon of medium ground coffee per cup. Brew only as much as you expect to drink. If you're after a stronger brew, just use a little more coffee.


Espresso- To make a great espresso with perfect crema, fill the filter basket with finely ground coffee til it's slightly heaped. Compress the grounds firmly and evenly, using a tamper.


Stovetop - Fill the bottom part with cold water (not past the steam valve) and the filter basket with finely ground coffee. Heap the coffee a bit then tamp it down gently with your fingers. Screw the top on tightly and place on the heat until it boils. Remove from heat and have a quick peek once the sounds of bubbling and splashing taper off. If the espresso has stopped pouring out of the centre, you're done

Store in an air-tight container.
