7 most frequent questions about coffee

We have received several questions from you about our coffee in the last year. So, we have prepared a selection of the most frequent ones.

What are you most curious about our coffee?

Which coffee is the strongest?

Well, the answer depends on what do you mean by ‘strength’? If we’re talking about the taste, that is about a coffee that’s remarkably bitter, has a full, complex body with a long aftertaste: then we definitely recommend our winning blend Intensivo, or our single origin Cuba Serrano Superior.

However, if you by ‘strength’ mean high caffeine content, then we would recommend our two Arabica/Robusta blends: Gurmano and Duetto. As you surely know, a 100% Arabica has a naturally lower caffeine content than a Robusta, so the blends of these two always have higher caffeine content.

You can read more about the differences between Arabica and Robusta here.

Which coffee makes a good capuccino?

Choosing the right coffee depends on whether you like a classic, more conservative capuccino, or the modern type.

Many of our customers praise Brasil Santos for capuccino, which is also our bestselling single origin coffee. But also our coffees with remarkable chocolate, tobacco and nutty tones Cuba or Piano go well with milky coffee drinks.

In case you prefer a more modern capuccino, which boasts with higher sweetness and aromas, then we recommend our coffees Guatemala, Colombia or El Salvador.

Do you offer decaf coffee?

Yes, we do – and not only that! You can find a decaffeinated coffee ZERO in our line-up, but also a unique low-caffeine coffee SIESTA.

Both coffees are designed for:

  • coffee afficionados, who drink more than 3 coffees a day
  • people, who like to enjoy a coffee also in the evening
  • people affected with cardiovascular diseases
  • people with high blood-pressure
  • people sensitive to caffeine
  • pregnant and breastfeeding women

How do I know if a coffee is ground or whole beans? Can I ask you to grind my order?

Most of the coffee we offer are in whole beans for a very simple reason: we want you to have the best possible experience from our coffee. It’s only possible if you grind your coffee just before using it. Fact is that ground coffee oxidizes very quickly, and thus loses its aromatic and flavor attributes.

We still have a few coffees offered ground in our e-shop – these are 220g packaging of our blends Intensivo, Gurmano, Harmonelle, Duetto, Piano, Zero and Siesta. You can even buy ground Zero in a 500g packaging.

No matter if it’s a 220g, 500g or 1kg packaging, we can grind it for you on request. You only have to put a comment in the comments section of your order and specify, which coffee and to which usage (e.g. Please grind my Brasil Santos for mocha).

Use our filters to find ground coffees in our e-shop more easily, it also helps choosing the right coffee for your taste or method.

Which coffees are lightly roasted?

We roast our coffees to different degrees based on their specific profiles. Our coffees with very light, light and medium light roast are Ethiopia Dimtu Tero, El Salvador La Joya and Guatemala Acatenango.
