What Makes a Good Cup of Coffee? Part 1

Mmmm… Coffee.

According to Justina Chen, ‘Adventure in life is good. Consistency in coffee, even better.’

It would be hard to find a coffee drinker who disagrees. Coffee has become the gasoline of the modern world, fuelling millions each day with the sweet promise of productivity and wakefulness.

But for those of us lucky enough to live amidst the thriving café culture and innovative coffee scene of Melbourne, it’s easy enough to take our morning coffee-fix for granted…
Until we have a bad coffee.

It doesn’t have to be awful. It doesn’t necessarily have to burnt or bitter. There’s just something not quite right.
You know the feeling: a mixture of betrayal and contempt.
The sad realisation sinks in as you take that first sip and suddenly your whole day is ruined and everything in life is futile.

It seems strange to consider that a cup of coffee of all things should have such a profound effect on us, but for those of us who live in the ‘lucky country’, particularly in Melbourne, where the options for our beautiful, balanced early-morning cup are plentiful, coffee is not just fuel for the day, it’s a ritual, an experience. It is ceremony.

And that leads us to wonder, what makes a good coffee? What is it that dictates the difference between a steaming cup of liquid gratification and the borderline criminal act of enduring sub-par coffee?

A good cup of coffee is subjective to some extent.

Some, as T.S. Elliot wrote, may measure out their life with coffee spoons, preferring a stronger start to their day, whilst others prefer a sweetener of sorts to aid in their consumption.

Another variable is milk of course, from full cream to soy and more recently the options of specialty ‘milks’ such as Almond and coconut.

Then there’s the amount of milk and how much of it is foamed, of course.

One can always go further still, preferring mocha, various flavourings, decaffeinated, or even iced coffee, a visit to a coffee shop is daunting to a novice, yet even the most experienced of baristas is surprised by a new combination every so often.

To counter this, there is always the steadfast traditional, the one who refuses to tarnish their espresso with any additions and savours the purity of the solid short black.

Despite the differences in preferences we might have for taste, there is still a definitive line between good and bad coffee for any seasoned drinker.

Coffee, as we know it today, is the wonderful fusion of both art and science.

Although the brewing of this humble bean has come a long way since its beginnings in 15th century Ethiopia and the early coffee trees of Yemen; innovation, invention, technology, and passion have all played a part in how we relate to coffee in modern times.

Throughout the years and despite differences in taste, we now know the four absolute factors that make a good cup of coffee. The 4 Ms as we like to call it, are essential to producing a good cup of coffee. Today we’re going to cover the first of the four Ms, La Miscela!

La Miscela – The Mixture

The mixture, or more aptly, the blend, is the first of the four Ms, and for good reason. Coffee begins at the bean.

Although single-origin coffee is gaining popularity amongst purists and coffee aficionados, blends remain popular for producing a greater balance in flavours.

It is important to have a trusted supplier for quality coffee beans to ensure well-designed flavour and aroma.

Attention to detail during the blend assembly is paramount, and it takes a lot of time and research to develop the perfect composition of flavours to compliment or contradict one another.
See our range of quality coffee for quality coffee beans, ground coffee and pods.

Selecting the right beans to enhance flavours and complement or contradict one another is the first step in the crafting of a good cup of coffee.
Like an artist choosing their paints, the roaster must choose the right beans, always keeping in mind the bigger picture.

A good cup of coffee, when looking at that bigger picture, doesn’t just mean taste and mouthfeel.

It’s becoming more and more important for consumers to know the origins of their brew and whether the beans are sustainably grown and if they have been ethically sourced.

These days, thankfully, there is much more awareness of the unfair conditions and mistreatment endured by coffee farmers.

As conscientious wholesale coffee suppliers, we strive to provide Fairtrade coffee and are excited to bring the Global Café Direct range to our customers as part of our extensive Coffex range.

If you want to know more about Fairtrade certified coffee providers, there is a list available on the Fairtrade website.

Knowing your choices improves the lives of farmers and their communities makes your cup of coffee the best kind of ‘good’.

The use of synthetic chemicals, fertilisers, and pesticides is another factor that leaves a bad taste in your mouth, no matter how delicious the coffee.

The next step of course, is the roasting process.

This process is what actualises those complex flavour profiles that are signature to our beloved coffee, turning the simple green seeds into the aromatic beans that we adore so.

Although we source our beans from over 25 countries across four continents in the hunt for the most enticing of flavours, we bring them back to Melbourne for roasting at our Brunswick plant.

Our master roaster uses modern techniques to ensure optimal flavour extraction during every step of the roasting process.

This, combined with our high-grade European equipment including a 300-kilogram Brambati roaster and 120-kilogram and 22-kilogram Probat roasters, allows us to produce large commercial quantities as well as smaller bespoke orders.

Local roasting ensures freshness.

Once a coffee bean has been roasted and is exposed to air, it begins to degrade and lose its flavour.

It is important to know when your coffee is roasted and to know when the optimum time is to consume it.
There is no telling how long the products have been on the shelves, and in many cases products are poorly packaged and improperly stored.

Shipping coffee online is actually a better option than supermarkets for the most part, as the product is not left to languish in storage or long transit- in most cases. However, ensure you purchase from a reputable dealer that understands correct handling and the importance of freshness to avoid the disappointment of poor quality coffee.

That’s why it is imperative to find a trustworthy supplier, who is experienced, and local! That way you know that you are getting the freshest, highest quality of coffee possible. (We know of an exceptionally amazing supplier if you’re still wondering…)

Coffex is one of the largest coffee manufacturers in the Southern Hemisphere, enabling us the capacity and resources to undertake contract roasting for private labels and other brands.

We use premium quality foils for packaging to ensure freshness as well as coming in a range of colours and blank finishes for unique branding.

Find out about the other crucial elements that go into making a good cup of coffee in Part 2, but until then keep in mind that with 50 years of producing award winning coffee, we have La Miscela down pat.

Saving Money Every Morning With Office Coffee

office-2

Coffee is often one of the upsides of daily work life. A part of the day that people truly enjoy.

There is a developed taste literacy around coffee. And the quality of coffee that people can get from local cafés has become high.

“Café quality coffee” is a benchmark that all coffee drinkers understand, in terms of the type, variety, and availability coffee. It is a daily part of our lives. It is also a daily expense.

The “practice” morning coffee. The “real” morning coffee. The lunch break. The Three-thirty afternoon pick-me-up.

Caffeine addictions aside, work life and coffee culture go hand in hand. But every coffee can be up to $5 out of pocket every time you venture to the café.

Image via Squareup

 

While this seems an obvious daily expense, what isn’t accounted for is the distance between work and the café.

The cafe run

We have all made the mistake of heading out to the café and asking our work colleagues if they want a coffee. It always ends with an awkward tight rope balancing act of coffee trays and a practised karate kick to open and navigate doors.

Think of all the meetings where you get coffee for clients.

What is it, a five-minute walk to the café? Ten?

For argument’s sake say it is ten minutes to the café, ten minutes back. That is twenty minutes out of a day. All the laps back and forth between the café and the workplace. And we haven’t even considered the wait time while the barista prepares the coffee. Is there a queue?

As an employer, having one or several employees leave the office for a coffee run is a dip in productivity. But if that happens several times throughout the day, on a weekly basis, the loss becomes cumulative.

But, we hear you say, coffee boosts productivity.

At Coffex, we live and breathe coffee. And know how beneficial a morning coffee can be to productivity.

A survey in 2015 confirmed that almost ninety percent of workers believed that having a cup of coffee could make an improvement in a day at work.

On the other side, there were also many who said that not having a coffee could lead to feelings of exhaustion, irritability, unproductiveness, disorganisation, and forgetfulness.

Furthermore, coffee can be beneficial to mental health.

A Harvard study identified that women who drank at least four coffee drinks each day had a lesser risk of becoming depressed. Caffeine can help maintain higher levels of dopamine and serotonin, which will help make you feel happier.

Productivity in-house

Today, office coffee machines bridge the distance between office and café.

From Superautomatics to professional espresso machines, a machine in the workplace can reduce the expenses of employees and employers, and create a boost in both alertness and productivity.

But what about that benchmark? What about “Café quality Coffee”?

It is true that there are a large range of coffee machines out there. Their quality and thus the quality of coffee they produce can vary.

At Coffex Coffee Roasters, we have only sourced machines that bring out the best in our coffee. We have even sourced machines for small, medium, and large sized companies. It was a natural step. Wanting to provide the best coffee led to providing the best equipment.

By choosing one quality coffee machine for your business, you are reducing the need for your staff to go to cafes. “Café quality coffee” is available in-house.

But other than productivity, what else can office coffee bring to the workplace.

The little things

Having the facilities to offer quality coffee to clients, or simply being able to build rapport over a latte, can cement you in the mind of clients. But extrapolate that out further. Seminars, product launches, inter-department meetings.

The ability to offer small offerings of hospitality, can foster greater networking potential.

Convenience

The simplest benefit for employees is convenience.

Monday hating employees often need their cup of coffee in the morning. An automated coffee machine will provide the same high quality consistently and there are no barista skills needed.

But the ability to quickly grab a coffee means that the impact on work is greatly reduced with coffee being both free and easier to access.

While some businesses choose not to offer quality coffee to their employees for free, others see the return on investment in significant areas of their business.

Culture and Morale

Coffee culture and work culture interact, but are perceived and stereotyped differently.

Coffee culture evokes cafés, aromas, and warmth. Whereas work culture evokes cubicles, the sound of keyboards, mouse clicks, and staplers.

But many companies are coming to a better understanding of how much work stress impacts physical and mental health.

Identifying ways of creating a positive work environment has reaped the reward of a greater output of higher quality work.

A study undertaken by MIT showed that coffee breaks can have a positive effect in an office environment. The study suggests it increases “group strength” in the workplace and there can be a resulting improvement in productivity.

Coffee even improves memory! A study by John Hopkins University researchers found that subjects who consumed an amount of caffeine that was equivalent to the amount found in a cup of coffee had better recall the following day than those who had not had any caffeine.

In addition, people having a coffee with colleagues will exchange ideas, perspectives, and opinions that can lead to new developments and solutions.

Having a coffee break at the same time as colleagues is an ideal time to network and talk things over without leaving the office.

Why office coffee?

The advantages of coffee in-house, or office coffee, are quantifiable. And only serve to become more apparent over time.

The decision to get a machine in the office can:

  • Promote positivity towards the organisation and management
  • Advance work culture
  • Improve productivity in the workplace
  • Boost the morale of your staff
  • Create a positive environment in the office
  • Reduce time lost on journeys to the cafe

Coffee machines for business are highly convenient, efficient, and can provide quality coffee. They can improve morale, positivity, and work culture. Ask yourself, if your office and colleagues could do with a coffee machine.

The Origin of Melbourne Coffee Culture

Young Woman at a Coffee Shop

The city of Melbourne is a city of unique juxtaposition. Buildings as historic as Flinders Street Station across the road from the divisive architecture of Federation Square. It is a city that has never let go of its heritage, whilst simultaneously embracing other ideas and cultures to become a melting pot and the world’s most liveable city. One of the most unique elements in Melbourne has been the culture of coffee. We at Coffex Coffee examine the origin of coffee in Melbourne to discover, how it has flourished into one of the city’s most famous qualities. And it all starts with alcohol…

Refuse booze and choose coffee: Rise of the Coffee Palace

It is the 1880s. In response to drunkenness, antisocial behaviour, and drinking in excess, a social movement, known as the Temperance movement, saw more and more people abstaining from alcohol. The move away from alcohol meant the move away from pubs. Where then will people go to socialise? Enter the coffee palaces. In 1888, one such palace was built on Collins Street. The Federal Hotel and Coffee Palace was erected, an enormous four storey, architectural marvel constructed in the Second Empire style. To put the scale into perspective, the hotel contained 370 guest rooms and a penthouse suite located in the tower. It became a social hub in Melbourne, and coffee culture started brewing.

Medium

The introduction of espresso and café culture

In 1890, the Baring Crisis led to Australian bank crashes, and coffee palaces found themselves struggling. Booze returned to the scene, but the taste for coffee remained. The 1930s saw the introduction of the espresso. Before that, all coffee was percolated, and tea was still favoured. But the espresso machine found its way into Melbourne businesses and coffee flourished.

The end of the second world war, gave rise to the adoption of European Coffee culture in Melbourne. Tea took a back seat to coffee lounges, and by the 1960s espresso bars were where many migrants to Australia socialised. Despite the momentum that coffee had developed, the Federal Hotel and Coffee Palace was declining in popularity, and the building was demolished in 1973. It remains one of Melbourne’s greatest losses. But coffee was and is now everywhere.

Medium

The coffee scene in Melbourne today

The sense of community that once occupied the Federal Hotel and Coffee Palace now occupies cafes throughout greater Melbourne. Coffex Coffee Roasters have been roasting coffee beans in Brunswick since 1959. Having been a part of Melbourne’s coffee scene, we understand that coffee culture isn’t just established, it’s booming. Selling coffee for businesses we’ve witnessed new restaurants, cafés, bars, pubs, and lounges all taking part and pride in delivering quality coffee. Melbourne’s baristas are some of the best in the world and hail from across the city. With over a century of history behind us, Melbournians have not only the taste for coffee, but also a knowledge and literacy of coffee flavours. And we, as a city, continue to develop and source the best beans, methods and equipment to make Melbourne one of the coffee capitals of the world.

Coffex Coffee Talks the Ethical Coffee Bean

Farmer with hat looking the coffee plantation field

As we make progress towards more conscious consumers, it becomes clear how easy it is to overlook what goes into bringing a product from inception, to creation and finally into our hands. From eggs, to diamonds, to forest sustainability, some companies are taking a firm stance towards corporate and social accountability. As wholesale coffee suppliers, we at Coffex Coffee comb the world looking for not only the best in coffee, but that which is ethically sourced and Organic.

Fairtrade on a global scale

Fairtrade is a social movement advocating better education, and the unification of farmers to strengthen their position and ensuring fair pay. As Fairtrade points out, the livelihood of 125 million people – many living in developing countries – depend on coffee to survive. Not in the context that we talk about needing a morning coffee though. Poor yield, fungal disease affecting crops (such as leaf rust disease), and climate change can decimate these farmers and their families. 20 percent of which are smallholder farmers whose production, accounts for 80 percent of the world’s coffee.

This is all before we consider the lack of access to current market information, how severely coffee as a commodity fluctuates, or power relations in developing countries that expose farmers to exploitation. Fairtrade currently represent 810,000 farmers in 30 countries of which Coffex is proud to be a part of.

The move towards Organic Coffee

In order to maximise coffee production, many farms have used a multitude of pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers. And while an immediate issue is the affect on the soil and subsequent environment, a more pressing concern is the impact it may have on the coffee producers, farmers and, we the coffee drinkers. This has led to more and more coffee roasters, sourcing organic coffee. Organic coffee retains the authenticity of taste, but is also more sustainable, and better for the consumer.

Medium

Melbourne wholesale suppliers and the Conscious coffee

At Coffex, we seek Fairtrade coffee and are delighted to bring our customers the Global Café Direct range.

Perfect Coffee Beans to Kick Start 2018

Coffee beans

The morning coffee. It is a waking ritual. It is preparation; a way of getting ready for the busy day ahead. And when those days are particularly busy, coffee can become an essential survival tool, more precious than water. Not just for the energy boost, but the smell of freshly roasted coffee beans. The sound of a commercial espresso machine, or the hiss of frothing coffee. It doesn’t matter how you like your coffee. The experience of good coffee is just as important as the caffeine.

At Coffex, we understand that the morning coffee is one of those little things that makes the big things more bearable. So to start 2018, we take a look at some of the perfect coffee beans to kick start 2018.

Natural and hand-picked from Colombia.

Colombia | J.Arcila

We start our pilgrimage with coffee beans meticulously hand-picked, and grown by Jairo Arcila in Finca Santa Monica. Developed by the Colombian Coffee Federation, this varietal was created to fight against leaf rust disease. This natural processing, combined with its location 1900-2200 metres above sea level, helps provide unique and distinctive notes. Specifically, affectations of blueberries, liquorice, sweet syrup and dark cherry.

RFA Certified blend out of Zambia

Zambia | Mafinga Hills

Straight from the Kateshi and Insanya estate comes the complex berry aftertaste of specialty grade coffee beans. Embracing the acidity, of lemon and lime, the citric flavours are balanced with facets of melon and raisins. This mix varietal is grown between 1300-1600 metres. This variance above sea level for either estate certainly contributes to the complexity of the blend, with the higher elevations creating denser beans and different flavours.

Good Coffee and education in Nicaragua.

Nicaragua | B.B. Candy

La Bastilla holds two coffee farms approximately 1350 metres above sea level and from them comes nuances of Blueberries, Zesty Lime, Pineapple, and Vanilla. Our love of such a balanced flavour is paired with appreciation for La Bastilla and their work with the Foundation of Rural Education and Entrepreneurship. A foundation that promotes education to the farms youth.

Roasted in the suburbs. Sourced from the world.

While we roast locally from our Brunswick location, we source from over 25 countries, across 4 continents, because we strive to find flavours to match all palettes. Looking for the finest coffee has taken us around the globe. If you would like to experience more of the unique coffee flavours, see our specialty coffee range. Alternatively, you can buy coffee beans from our classic range, Organic Fairtrade, or coffee pods.

How Do You Store Your Coffex Coffee?

Coffee Freshness – How Do You Store Your Coffex Coffee?

Do you enjoy our premium coffee blends? Is it the pleasant aroma, the rich taste? Everyone can agree that a superb brew always comes down to how fresh the ingredients are. Whether you purchase a single Coffex coffee packet or buy in bulk, as soon as you tear open the packet seal, there is a lot you can do to preserve the freshness of your precious coffee beans.

So how should you store and use your coffee beans?

Check the Roasted Date

It may seem trivial and obvious but it is always worth checking the expiration and roasted dates of your stock. Avoid disappointment entirely by avoiding a packet that has been in storage for too long. Alternatively, you can be proactive in which packet to open next if you are in the habit of rotating your stock properly.

Use a Sealed Container

How often are you dipping into your stash of yummy coffee? Is it worth investing in a secure container? The connoisseurs at home are probably content with a plastic clip or a small plastic container. Baristas and café owners, however, may prefer to use sealed storage tubs to top up their hoppers in a flash without compromising the quality of their product.

Don’t Refrigerate Your Beans

Did you know that refrigerated coffee beans can affect the quality of your product? Refrigeration can form condensation and moisture which can quicken the staleness of the beans.

Protect Your Goods

Proper storage is essential because air, moisture, temperature and light are all factors that affect the freshness of your coffee. For more hot tips, contact the experts at Coffex

Coffex Coffee Roasters Malaysia – Brand New Roasting Facility

Coffex_Malaysia_1

On the 19th of September 2015, Coffex Coffee Roasters launched their brand new roasting, warehousing and office facility in Glen Marie Industrial Park, Selangor, Malaysia.

The launch was officiated by Coffex’s guest of honour, Tan Sri Yong Poh Kon, together with Chairman of Coffex Coffee Malaysia, Mr. Ngow Wing Hong and Executive Direct of Coffex Coffee Malaysia, Mr. Kelvin Ngow.

The brand new facility was a result of Coffex Coffee Malaysia’s expansive growth in the region during the recent years. Fueled by South East Asia’s increasing demand of specialty coffee plus the growth in social acceptance towards espresso based coffee drinks, Coffex Coffee Malaysia’s operations have grown nearly two folds in the last couple of years.
