CLEAR FOCUS – NO JITTERS
Our specialty coffee beans are supplied by a local Brisbane roaster who specifically sources high altitude, hand picked and wet processed beans, ensuring the highest quality and controlling for the presence of contaminants such as mycotoxins. No jitters, just clear focus and energy, and of course amazing aroma and flavour profiles.
Specialty Coffee is simply defined as coffee that is graded and scores 80/100 or above. These coffees are less than 5% of coffees grown worldwide as they require the utmost care and attention to grow and are only viable in very specific micro climates. Typically grown at high altitudes, Specialty Coffees are grown, picked and processed with the greatest care as any part of the process that could be detrimental to the bean will reduce the quality and therefore no longer score high enough to be considered “Specialty”.
Specialty Coffees are also traded unlike other coffees and commodities where they fetch prices based on quality rather than volume of crop and market value. They are commonly purchased via auction where their quality can fetch prices in excess of $200kg AUD.
Specialty Coffee is also less likely to be sprayed by pesticides or contain forms of bacteria introduced during processing as again this would be detrimental to the quality and no longer be considered “Specialty”.
During the roasting process beans can reach temperatures around 215c which will eliminate the possibility that any trace of bacteria remain present in the bean.
