100% Australian grown coffee with 50% from our own Zentveld’s estate.
Why the name?
It's named in honour of Dr. Ernesto Illy. The good doctor visited Zentveld's plantation and roasters in 1997, proclaiming:
"This roast produces a perfect espresso – a balance of sweetness, body and acidity."
And he wasn't the only one impressed as the Ernesto was the recipient of 7 medals for espresso – short black and plunger coffee classes in The Sydney Royal Fine Food Show for the 6 years entered, 2002-2008.
Our beautiful artisans Bec & John have sourced rare Australian beans – from their own Zentveld estate and other local coffee plantations, as available in the hills in our local region of Northern Rivers, along with our one chosen Qld estate.
Our 200g packets are available in whole bean, plunger/drip ground, or espresso ground for stove top coffee makers. Remember to choose from the drop down menu your grind of choice!
Yours in Kaffeine Kulture, the Naturally Northern Rivers Team.
