    FRENCH PRESS Easy to find, easy to do, French Press is the old faithful of the home baristas. You can make a large amount at a time and please a crowd. 10 minutes is all you need & you have a steaming cup of caffeinated goodness. Requires a Coarse grind.

MOKA POT The quickest way to beautiful Italian style coffee, this stovetop brewer will keep you going all day. Bellissimo! Requires a Fine grind. FILTERED/CHEMEX The no-fuss way to a beautiful brew. Cold or hot, this method is easy for beginners, and there are so many options for equipment. Requires a Medium to Coarse grind.

FLAT WHITE The flat white milk is very similar to the cappuccino except there is no froth or chocolate on top. The is simply made with an espresso shot and warm milk. LONG BLACK The long black is a very simple yet subtle way to enjoy the strong taste of the blend. It's made by pouring an espresso shot over hot water.

ESPRESSO OR SHORT BLACK A simple shot of coffee to enjoy the pure extract flavour of the bean. MACCHIATO Very similar to a cappuccino, only smaller and stronger. It's made by placing warm milk froth onto an espresso shot. PICCOLO Simply put, the piccolo is a smaller version of a latte, made in an espresso glass.

  • What can I do with my old coffee grinds?
    BOOST YOUR GARDEN BED Just by sprinkling some of the grounds around your plants, mixing into the soil, or creating a spray fertiliser with some water can boost the health and growth of the garden. COMPOST AND FOOD FOR WORMS Coffee grounds have the power to stabilise the pH levels and degrade food more quickly. They're also great for masking the smell! SELFCARE AT HOME Indulge yourself and smell amazing by scrubbing the coffee grounds over your body and rinse off. This will help remove dead skin cells without irritating the skin. Or enjoy silky hair by rubbing grounds through and rinsing out with cold water. HOUSEHOLD CLEANING The leftover coffee grounds can also be repurposed as nifty hacks to keep your house clean. A mixture of hot water and coffee grounds poured down your sink drain can help unclog it. Or placing dry grounds wrapped in cloth on your fridge shelf can absorb strong odours.
