Australian Bean

Knockrow Ridge Coffee sources its roasting bean primarily from the Byron Bay Hinterland area of Northern New South Wales and from the Atherton Tableland in far North Queensland when it is available.

Australian coffee has a distinct taste producing a natural sweetness, lack of bitterness and a medium body with both chocolate and nutty flavours. It is tricky to roast but with the finesse of our roast master you can be assured of a great tasting coffee.

Whole Bean or Ground?

Whole Bean – Whole bean coffee allows you to grind to your specifications. Coffee keeps for longer in whole bean form allowing you to purchase in larger quantities saving time and money. For those who don’t yet have a grinder read on….

Fine Grind – This grind size suits most espresso machines. However, espresso machines are all a bit different and they operate best with coffee that is ground to the fineness suited to the machine and other environmental conditions on the day. If this grind doesn’t give you the results you expect then consider moving to a home grinder down the track.

Medium Grind – Best suited for stove top or drip filter applications where coffee benefits from longer and often lower temperature extraction.

Coarse Grind – This grind size is suitable for plunger applications reducing the ‘sludgy’ texture that can result from coffee that has been ground too finely for plungers.

Size and Packaging

1kg, 500g, 200g Black Bag – Heat sealed, food grade specialty coffee packaging with one-way vent and rippa-zippa re-sealer which helps to retain the freshness of your coffee and enables longer in-bag storage.
