NOTE:- As of Feb 2017, we no longer provide FREE DELIVERY on this product to some parts of remote Australia - WA, NT, Mid and North QLD and regional SA.
If you are located within these freight zones, please purchase the standalone BARISTA 1kg product and select the appropriate shipping service.
It was one of our first coffees we created more than 12 years ago and has evolved over time to be a trusted favorite amongst our regular loyal customers - it remains a sentimental and personal coffee that we are both satisfied and proud to offer.
Barista is a seasonal coffee - this means the profile of the coffee will vary slightly over 6 month periods as we apply blending formulas that utilize our best options each season - a coffee that continues to evolve.
This coffee won a Bronze Medal at the Golden Bean in December 2011 for Milk-Based Espresso - it's a classic "dark horse" that delights and surprises.
An important note about the term "FREE DELIVERY".
Nobody provides "free delivery" in a true sense - it's a real cost and someone has to pay whether it's detailed explicitly or "built in" to the price you are already paying.
Retail in Australia is a tough gig, nobody can afford to give away anything - most merchants selling with "Free Shipping" have built the cost of freight into their price and if their price is still really cheap, then it's might be low quality, stale or distressed inventory.
Our coffee bean prices are already discounted across the entire range as we sell our premium grade coffees up to 50% cheaper than our competitors.
Besides the price, we know we are also a lot fresher and faster with our logistics.
We roast this coffee every day, 5 days a week - it's fresh, not something that has been sitting on a retail shelf, a warehouse pallet or a distributor's showroom for weeks or months.
We are the roaster and it comes direct from us with no middleman in between.
Freight companies are not magic fairies that carry your parcels for nothing - there are real costs involved and as many of you know, freight in Australia is expensive, especially coffee as it's bulky.
We have done our best to subsidize the freight component on this 6kg product so that people who live outside of the Melbourne metro area can also enjoy this fresh roasted, high-quality product at an affordable price, delivered to their door.
Typically, in most regional areas of Australia customers are paying more than $40 a kilo for stale, low-grade coffee, so the free shipping incentive that applies when you spend more than $50 is just a gimmick because the individual price of each pack is already loaded with a freight cost.
Freight prices are variable from postcode to postcode and the further you are away from Melbourne, the more expensive the freight - in some cases like South East QLD and regional NSW we can end up losing money on this bundle.
So before you send us an email querying your calculations because you live in Melbourne and you don't think the free delivery product is actually saving you money - please understand the information above, or purchase multiple kilos of the 1kg Barista product as shipping in Melbourne is a low flat rate up to 18kg.
This coffee, along with our Espresso blend were the very first 2 coffees I created more than a decade ago.
Ironically, this was a classic Italian-style and we found the Australian palate prefered some brighter notes and a sweeter finish in milk.
A simple and elegant blending strategy, but we discovered it was too similar to everyone else's coffees - so to set it apart we took a different approach.
I really enjoy roasting Barista as the blend contains 5 different beans consisting of washed, naturally pulped and sundried processing types.
This coffee has something for everyone - it is designed to appeal to the general majority of coffee drinkers.
Barista is a highly versatile blend - working across various brew methods with ease - for this reason we will always recommend this coffee to people wanting to try our coffee for the very first time.
Barista now commands a loyal and strong following of devotees amongst the mycuppa customers.
It's not unusual for us to run out of this coffee most weekdays, so it's roasted every night to ensure fresh coffee is being sent out the door.
When you look at what customers order and in particular, when they are repeatedly ordering the same coffee, over and over, you gain some valuable insights as to how popular and enduring a coffee will remain over time.
Without doubt, our Barista Blend has a big cult following and I often ask myself a few questions - is it the postage bundle deal, is it the sublime balance this coffee produces or is it just one of those very drinkable coffees that appeals to the everyday coffee drinker ?
The answers to these questions are often found when customers call and place phone orders - I take the opportunity to ask them why they stick with the same coffee...........the response is typically because it performs flawlessly and consistently.
A coffee that can please anyone........
