New Filter - Don Sabino Washed!

Toot the horn! We’ve just put our first boxes of one of our favourite filter coffees, Don Sabino’s washed process on the shelf. This filter coffee is clean, crisp and reminds us of those red candy apples you almost broke your teeth on as a kid.

Don Sabino Coffee

We visited Don back in February on his small coffee farm La Fuente in Nicaragua with Ben from Gold Mountain Coffee Growers (a very handy translator as our Spanish is basic at best), just outside Jinotega.

The farm sits at 1400m and produces both Catuai and Caturra. At the end of a long day of farm visits, we rolled down one VERY steep driveway (ask Will about his newly found 4WD skills) and bumped our way to a very modest, but warm and inviting family home.

Inside, we met Don, his wife, 3 small children and their cute dog who couldn’t get enough of a tummy scratch.

With the premium price Don received for his outstanding coffee he wished to improve some of the buildings and processing equipment on the farm. With new raised beds last year, Don experimented with his very first natural processed coffee, where the cherries are dried whole. If you’re after an even wilder ride with Don’s coffee, we’ll have some of the natural in the coming months!

If you’re new to filter, check out our brew guides or give us a shout, we’ll happily show you some tips. Enjoy this coffee, we sure are.

… Is Don, is good!

We look forward to being able to offer even more sustainable options in the future when we have a permanent space. As we’ll have everything including that ol’ kitchen sink!

Until then… bring down your keep cups! Good for the planet, fun for all.

Pups and Chinos

Wow, what an amazing turnout for our first Pups and Chinos event raising money for the Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge!

If you haven’t noticed by now, we’re CRAZY about dogs and our mission is to improve the lives of dogs both locally and beyond, in the coffee regions we source from. We donate an ongoing $1 a kilo to dog organisations and this was the first of many events to raise some further funds for our current cause, Sunshine Coast Animal Rescue.

Together with Noosa Dog Cakes biscuits, and delicious banana ‘n bacon pupcakes we served over 90 puppaccinos to the most amazing (and furry) customers!

  • Celebrating Ruby’s 4th birthday with a puppaccino (complete with tutu! so cute!)

  • Commenting on how quiet the dogs were being, only to hear a sudden bark-fiesta!

  • Dogs of all shapes and sizes sniffing out new friends and enjoying a fun day out!
