When customers purchase our organic coffee beans for home brewing, the question most frequently asked is about how to make the best cup of coffee. Well, it’s a big question. Therefore, we’ve assembled 5 tips and steps for optimal brewing at home and for improving the flavour qualities of your organic coffee experience!
The jury is still out on the best brewing technique for extracting that heavenly cuppa java. But, it’s safe to say that manual brewing methods provide more quality control of the process; hence, a more flavourful coffee. Still, there is great debate about the best manual method to extract coffee, ranging from pour-over/drip, press, vacuum, pressure to percolate. Not to mention there’s a plethora of simple to sleek brewer devices. But one thing is certain; the material on selecting the most suitable method and equipment is endless. Whether you’re a coffee connoisseur or a regular joe, the method will depend on individual taste and level of convenience. While we support all coffee brewing methods, our focus on this occasion is the popular French press method and its finer points for brewing at home, that is practical, convenient and straightforward!

With the change of seasons upon us, it’s time to capture the flavours of autumn and fall in love with our September feature – Apple Crumble Cheesecake! It’s hard not to gush over this wholesomely good cheesecake that offers homemade flavours in every bite.
Thank Goodness for Apples
There’s so much apple goodness packed into this quintessentially fall cheesecake. The Apple Crumble Cheesecake’s crisp sweet-tart character is owed to the fusion of Granny Smith apples with our creamy cheesecake filling, plus cinnamon and nutmeg adds a hint of spiciness. What we love about Granny Smith apples – aside from being particularly high in antioxidants – is that they’re naturally low in sugar giving them a tangy taste that works beautiful in this cheesecake. Pockets of juicy apple chunks are scattered throughout the cake which rests on a graham crumb crust and is topped with a dusting of apple crumble. A drizzle of caramel sauce is the finishing touch to our honest-to-goodness apple inspired cheesecake. (more…)
