The coffee we provide for use with our machines is made from Arabica and Robusta beans from Central and South America.
A coffee bean is a seed which is grown on a coffee plant. A deep red cherry grows on the coffee plant and the pit inside this cherry is the coffee bean which is used to create your cup of coffee.
Arabica coffee beans come from the Coffea Arabica plant. Quality Arabica coffee should have a slightly sweet flavour with hints of chocolate, nuts and caramel. With a fruity taste there is little bitterness.
Robusta coffee beans are from the Coffea Canephora plant. A Robusta bean has a sharp bitter taste. High in caffeine and less sugar than the Arabica, therefore have a stronger taste.Plant – The seeds are planted in large beds.
Harvest – It takes approx. 3-4 years for a coffee tree to grow and ripen the coffee cherry.
Process – The coffee cherry is processed through pulping machines and fermentation tanks and then dried.
Milling – The dried beans are sorted into sizes and weights and the defective beans are removed.
Export – Bags of the ‘green coffee’ beans are now exported to our roasting and packaging supplier.
Taste – A coffee taster, tastes the beans many times to determine which blend is best for our batch of beans.
Roast – The beans are roasted and our different roast varieties are created.
This process produces our premium blend of smooth tasting Infuso coffee.
