OUR COFFEE

YOUR DELICIOUS MORNING COFFEE HAS TAKEN A LONG JOURNEY FROM A SEED TO YOUR CUP.

PLANTING

A coffee bean is a seed, planted and watered frequently and shaded from bright sunlight. Coffee thrives in the tropic regions and at high altitudes.

HARVESTING THE CHERRIES

The coffee bean is actually a seed of fruit called a Coffee Cherry. It will take approximately 3-4 years for the newly planted coffee trees to bear fruit. In most countries each crop is picked by hand. The harvest is then sent to the processing plant.

PROCESSING THE CHERRIES

Once picked, cherries are carried to a mill for processing. There, they are passed through a pulping machine to separate the skin and pulp from the bean. After separation, fermentation is complete. The beans are then rinsed and are ready for drying.

DRYING THE BEANS

The beans are then dried to approximately 11% moisture to prepare them for storage. The dried beans are what we call green beans.

FAQ's

100% of our coffee beans and ground are ethically certified under the retail packs along with our Source Blend under the café range
We have coffee capsules that are compatible with both Nespresso and Caffitaly systems, what’s even better is our Nespresso capsules are fully compostable!
Grinders® packaged coffee blends have a shelf life of 24 months from its date of roasting. The harmful elements that coffee is exposed to are heat, moisture, light and oxygen. Once exposed to these elements the quality of your coffee will deteriorate. It is best to store coffee, beans or ground, in an air tight container away from strong smelling foods and in a cool dark place (e.g. pantry). The fridge or freezer is not the appropriate places as this will take the temperature of coffee to an extreme, drastically affecting the freshness.
The Grinders® production plant, located in Fairfield VIC, has a state of the art roasting facility with two world-class Italian designed and built Brambati roasters; a 120kg and a 300kg.

Arabica (coffea arabica)

Arabica coffee is characterized by its sweetness and acidity, its fruity and zesty flavours and intense aroma. It has a light to medium body and a soft mouthfeel. It contains on average about half of the caffeine of Robusta.

Grinders® uses premium grade Arabica coffees sourced from growing regions around the globe including SE Asia, Africa and South America.

 

Robusta (coffea canephora)

Robusta coffee is characterised by its woody and earthy flavours. It has lower acidity and a heavier mouthfeel. It is traditionally blended with Arabica beans to achieve excellent body in an espresso.

The Robusta trees are high bearing and disease resistant. Grinders® uses high grade robusta coffees predominately from Uganda and India.
