Here is the most exciting news of our summer 2018! We are very excited to announce that we swapped out our San Franciscan drum roaster for a new Loring Smart Roaster- and here is why this is an awesome move!
One of the trends we’ve seen a noticeable rise in over the past few years, is the popularity of decaffeinated coffee. No longer does decaf need to mean ‘not great coffee’. We’re particularly proud of our new Decaf Andes Mountains Organic, Peru and we now even have a full range of decaf coffees. Key to what makes a good decaf is how is the decaffeination process. We get asked a lot about how the process works. So I thought I’d take the time to explain a little more about what makes a decaf…a good decaf.
Bright Note was created by our founders Steven and Jeremy back in 2002. They wanted to create a blend that showcased the natural characteristics of coffee and introduce coffee drinkers to a lighter and brighter roast profile, whilst remaining accessible. They decided on three different components: a Brazil Natural, a Brazil Washed and a Guatemala Washed – the former would bring depth, chocolate and nut notes whilst the latter would brighten up the cup with a soft citric acidity. The Brazil washed would link the two together creating synergy. Our delicious Bright Note was born!
Spring is upon us and with it the promise of brighter and warmer days. This new spring blend Equinox (our seasonally changing blend) will reflect this long awaited change of season and gently awaken your senses like blossoming buds after a cold spell- it’s one of the most balanced Equinox we’ve created with a soft citric acidity, a fruity sweetness and sweet and rich chocolate and nutty overtones.
