What are the differences between Single Origin, Fine Blended and Fine Flavoured Coffees?

Bacha Coffee offers a collection of more than two hundred 100% Arabica coffees. This collection is composed of Single Origin, Fine Blended and Fine Flavoured coffees.

Single Origin coffees are sourced from one single producer or region in one country. Their flavours often depict characteristics of the area where the beans are grown and Bacha Coffee currently source our beans from 33 producing countries, bringing you the most exotic tastes from around the world!

Our Fine Blended coffees are composed of two or more single origin coffees. To create the perfect cup, our roasters choose different beans that complement and enhance each other.  By blending single origin coffee, we can create unique and signature coffees with specific characteristics, something that is not possible with a single origin coffee alone.

Our Fine Flavoured coffees use 100% Arabica beans flavoured with oils and extracts to create new savours such as Chocolate, Caramel and Vanilla, amongst many other tantalizing flavours.

Are there certain varieties of coffee which are recommended for certain manners of preparing coffee?
All of our coffees can be prepared using your preferred manner or machine. What is essential is that the coffee be ground to the right grind to ensure that it produces a cup which best represents the flavours and characteristics of that particular variety of coffee.


How do I make a cup of Bacha Coffee?

At our Bacha Coffee Rooms, coffee is prepared in a unique, traditional method using a cotton filter. This method allows the coffee oils to seep through the filter into the cup to extract the full, rich flavour of the coffee.

To recreate this experience at home, place 12 grams / cup of coffee (ground to the "Cotton Filter" grind) in a cotton filter which has been rinsed with hot water. Slowly pour water heated to 95°C (simmering) over the coffee. Repeat twice at intervals over the course of 2-3 minutes. Remove filter and enjoy your coffee black or with a dash of cream or steamed milk.

Do you sell decaffeinated coffees?

Yes we do!

We offer over 15 different 100% Arabica decaffeinated coffees which are processed using a natural CO₂ extraction method.

What is your decaffeination process?

Bacha Coffee is proud to use the finest natural CO₂ extraction method to produce our collection of 100% Arabica decaffeinated coffees.

The green coffee beans are steamed then added to a high-pressure vessel where a mixture of water and carbon dioxide are circulated. The caffeine dissolves into the carbon dioxide while the compounds contributing to the flavour of the brewed coffee are insoluble and remain intact in the bean.

This process, which does not involve the use of any chemical additives, is considered to be the most effective at keeping the unique characteristics of each coffee intact.

 
How should I store my coffee beans?
Store Bacha Coffee beans in the original resealable sachet in a cool, dry area, avoid direct light and heat. An airtight canister will help to preserve the flavours and aromas. View our canister collection in our Gifts & Exclusives section.
