Coffee Beans

The perfect coffee beans for your machines

Did you know that coffee beans and espresso beans aren’t quite the same things? Espresso beans are coffee beans but not all coffee beans are espresso beans. Confused? Don’t worry, we’ve got you.

Coffee beans are any beans roasted and readied for brewing, from light to dark. Espresso beans, however, is coffee roasted to a darker colour. This is the perfect coffee for machines as they offer the least acidity with a fuller body. These beans have more natural oils; you can see it in the sheen of the coffee beans. The oils emulsify the best to give you that espresso cream that you want when you press the button on your coffee machine.

Be sure to stay in the middle when you choose your beans. Too light and it won’t give you the punchy brew you expect. Too dark and it will only clog your grinders. At 62 Waters, we have chosen three of the best beans for your machine.

Espresso Gold – 1kg

R 173.04 (excl. vat) R 199.00 (incl. vat)

The Espresso Gold Blend consists of a fine selection of coffee beans originating from Brazil, Honduras, Guatemala, and Uganda. It also has a 70/30 Arabica/Robusta ratio. In other words, it is ideally balanced to showcase the fruity and floral aroma of Arabica while the Robusta provides a satisfactory content of the creaminess and a rich body to easily combine with milk or be enjoyed black.

This blend is bold and works exceptionally well in a coffee machine.

It is a medium to dark roast, which means the coffee is fully developed. It is usually characterised by a spicy, possibly bittersweet tang. The coffee connoisseur will even pick up slight hints of chocolate or caramel flavours and a hint of smokiness.

Espresso Premium – 1kg

R 199.13 (excl. vat) R 229.00 (incl. vat)

The Espresso Premium Blend is made of a combination of beans of Ethiopian, Guatemalan, and Honduran origin. It is 100% Arabica coffee. This means that it has a richer fragrance, but a slightly weaker body and the creaminess is not always consistent. With perfectly roasted beans, however, it still blends perfectly with milk. It is an all-around favourite and easy to enjoy coffee with or without a dash of milk.

This blend is slightly more subtle.

It is a medium blend which means it was roasted for just a couple of minutes less than the medium-dark roast. These beans are not as oily and showcase a medium acidity and body. It retains a lot of the unique flavours of the coffee’s origins while just dipping into the caramel/chocolate flavour profile of a longer roast.

Mocca Java – 1kg

R 173.03 (excl. vat) R 199.00 (incl. vat)

It is a medium blend which means it was roasted for just a couple of minutes less than the medium-dark roast. These beans are not as oily and showcase a medium acidity and body. It retains a lot of the unique flavours of the coffee’s origins while just dipping into the caramel/chocolate flavour profile of a longer roast.

This blend is slightly more subtle.

The Mocca Java Blend consists of beans from Brazil, Honduras, Guatemala and Tanzania. It is 100% Arabica coffee and provides a wonderfully rich fragrance.
