South Hull Home and School will be partnering with Brown Bag Coffee Roasters for a coffee fundraiser.
Brown Bag Coffee Roaster’s signature blend showcases who we are and what we want to put toward our customer base. If you want to know what kind of coffee we produce, BBCR Blend is a great place to start. Balanced from start to finish you can expect subtle notes of chocolate covered berries. Using Brazil, Colombia and Ethiopia we are able to get the best of all three single origin coffees. The reason we blend is to bring out brand new flavour combinations where they wouldn’t normally be present in those coffees alone. This way we can create something truly unique! Enjoy this coffee in any and all brewing techniques and drink styles. As a medium roast, our house blend sits at 19 on the Roast Vision Scale and 76 on the Agtron Gourmet Colour Scale laid out by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).
Composed of single origin coffees from Brazil, Colombia and Ethiopia, this well-balanced coffee serves as a beautiful espresso to be enjoyed on its own or accompanied with steamed milk (or plant based milk alternative) for a rich, creamy beverage. As a medium roast, our espresso blend sits at 20 on the Roast Vision Scale and 79 on the Agtron Gourmet Colour Scale laid out by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).
We've gone dark! Our dark roast has spurred on a new origin to our collection. Sumatra and Colombia make for a rich, full bodied French press, drip and espresso. The dark roast blend consists of Sumatra and Colombia. These two beans handle darker roasts really well and provide amazing flavours. You won't find any offensive bitterness and charcoal tastes here - only smooth richness accompanied with amazing notes of nut, dark chocolate and a full, smoky body. For a dark roast we recommend immersion and espresso style brewing. Brewers like French press, AeroPress and even Clever Drippers will complement the roast profile beautifully. As a dark roast, this blend sits at 10 on the Roast Vision Scale and 49 on the Agtron Gourmet Colour Scale laid out by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).
We get asked a lot of questions when it comes to decaf so we are going to try and answer them all in this description. Any coffee can be decaffeinated and there are two main decaffeination processes: natural and chemical. At BBCR we chose a natural (Swiss Water Processed) decaffeinated Colombian coffee. We found that Colombia had the body and amazing flavour notes that people wanted and chose Swiss Water for the obvious reason. ;) Swiss Water Process works by bathing green beans in temperature controlled water for a period of time and then being exposed to carbon filters that actually attract the caffeine molecules out of the body of the green, leaving the water and filters full of pure caffeine and the beans 99.9% free of caffeine. (Source: https://www.swisswater.com/) This allows for way more flavours to remain in the bean when roasting and brewing making it the obvious choice for those who want coffee without the aftereffects. This decaf is enjoyed with any and all brewing methods and drinks. As a medium dark roast, our decaf Colombia sits at 14 on the Roast Vision Scale and 61 on the Agtron Gourmet Colour Scale laid out by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).
Colombia Single Origin
Colombia accounts for one of the largest coffee producing countries in the world and rightly so. These coffees continue to impress us and our customers! This particular coffee is bold and has an amazingly sweet flavour overall. Top that with some fruity notes and you have yourself a nougat bar straight off the shelf. This is such a versatile coffee that we have it in all three of our blends. Because Colombia has been in the coffee game for such a long time, the processing methods and market sellers are super efficient and clever, making them easy enough to come by and sell you our customers. We are very proud of this coffee that we know you will enjoy with all brewing methods from drip to espresso to cold brew. As a medium roast, our Colombia single origin sits at 18 on the Roast Vision Scale and 73 on the Agtron Gourmet Colour Scale laid out by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA).
