April 27, 2015: Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Konga
Replacing the beautiful Ethiopia Aramo, we're excited to be sending out the first bags of the brand new and delicious Yirgacheffe Konga
The Konga is truly a top tier single origin coffee - the product of superior climatic conditions, unique Ethiopian heirloom varietals and a producer pedigree that spans generations of devoted coffee farmers. A classic naturally processed Yirgacheffe, it's sweet, floral & fruity with lush blueberry/cocoa notes. If that sounds like your cup of tea - so to speak - pick up a bag online or from one of our cafes
Padre Coffee: 2015
As regulars here at the webshop will have noticed, the Padre brand is going through a significant update, including a redeveloped and mobile-friendly website and a fresh new logo.
Needless to say, we love it and can’t wait to see it rolling out across the Padre vans, cafes and products. It takes a lot of work to develop and install a new visual identity, but working with award-winning local designers Rory & Rebecca of langdonlorraine
has been a pleasure. It helps that, as café customers of ours for years, they brought an understanding of and love for our company and coffee that made their excitement at collaborating on our new look (almost!) equal to ours. The new brand is just one of the projects on the go for 2015: stay tuned for more.
Back in stock: the Bruer.
Our favourite easy to use cold drip device, the Bruer,
is finally back in stock having been sold out throughout Australia in the summer months after cold drip fever hit. Take advantage of the last of the warm weather by brewing your own cold drip coffee at home: sweet, smooth and syrupy, it's full flavoured and delicious straight or on ice as well as with a splash of milk. Get a taste at one of our cafes.
