Our most popular 100% Australian grown in the hinterland of Byron Bay...
The name says it all - super cool, super smooth & so well balanced that you could brew it up & hang ten on the longboard without getting your hair wet!
Our Byron Blend is full-bodied (kinda like the Hemsworths) and smooth, with nutty, chocolate biscuit notes and a dry finish. It's perfect for those who love a latte, flat white or any milk blended coffee.
Pure washed process, practically organic and naturally spray free. Delicious chocolate biscuit notes, very smooth and medium bodied.
Coffee connoisseurs are constantly surprised at the chocolate flavours in Australian coffee. With mid level acidity, our Ernesto Roast adds brightness in the cup as your tastebuds sing along.
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.
Based on our Ernesto Roast, the Reserve 01 has the extra complexity and intriguing tones of natural processed beans from our local Northern Rivers estates.
It is a strong & fuller bodied blend, with less acidity & spicy fruitcake flavours. We love the wonderful middle palate with rounded body, rich crema and aroma.
Perfect as espresso or macchiato and works beautifully with milk too.
Shining star of the Sydney Royal Fine Food show this blend was awarded 6 medals for espresso – short black and cappuccino for the 6 years entered, 2002-2008.
For those who prefer the darker side of the barrel… And when the swell is up, we have plenty of those at our Northern Rivers surf beaches!
Pure 100% Australian organic grown blend with cocoa and panforte notes. Darker roasted – perfect for a strong milk coffee, deep & rich body and lingering finish. Expresso lovers delight!
Bayside is one of our stronger Australian blends featuring our Northern Rivers ‘naturals’. (Zentveld’s most likely, with occasional small batches from other local growers.)
Bayside Blend was developed from requests for a proper strong, full bodied cafe blend, of purely Australian estates, that punches through the fluff of milk.
Stronger than our Byron Blend, it has the extra depth of dry or natural processed beans from our local, Northern Rivers estates. For Reserve 01 fans, this is the stronger version with more of the darker roast profile – minus the bitterness.
Only The Fix is stronger than Bayside in our Australian coffees – with one third being our darkest roast profile.
HOT TIP: Bayside Blend is best matched for a mug size, milk-based espresso coffee. An intense espresso base will have depth, body and lasting flavour with less acidity than most blends – so fabulous for cappuccino, flat white or caffe latte.
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.
