If you own or use an automatic coffee machine, this is the perfect bean to use in your machine and will keep everyone in your office happy.
Over the last 13 years this coffee has become a regular feature for many large corporate clients and bean-to-cup providers.
It's not unusual for us to ship more than 600kg per week of this product around Australia, so it's roasted at least 4 times a week, every week, 51 weeks a year to ensure freshness.
When you order 12 of our 1kg premium SUPER AUTO whole bean packs, you not only don't have to worry about ordering again too soon, but you also get a great discount on the price.
Specially designed for use in super-automatic coffee machines (bean2cup). This is a rich, smooth and creamy coffee that can punch through milk with a clean, sweet finish.
A coffee that will appeal to everyone in the office from espresso to mocha drinkers.
Automatic coffee machines attempt to create a similar experience to cafe commercial equipment.
Super-auto's are generally found in offices and the home where convenient bean-to-cup grind, dose, tamp, extraction and milk froth units prepare a coffee with pre-defined settings, e.g. Jura, Saeco, Gaggia, De-Longhi, WMF, Azkoyen, Franke, etc.
To create a small, affordable appliance, the automatic machine basically trades-off some of brew quality.
Primarily, these limitations are a basic grinder, a simple thermoblock heating unit (a correct and constant temperature is very important and most autos run a little cool) and finally there are losses eminating from the brew units that mostly plastic - just not as effective as brass units used on commercial espresso machines.
So, the super-autos have losses, but they are very convenient and easy to use - tending to generate a result that is about 80+% of what can be achieved using properly calibrated commercial equipment.
For most people, this is adequate.
To overcome the brew quality losses from using an Auto, it is important to use very fresh coffee and a quality blend that has flavour without bitterness or excessive oils.
As coffee is roasted darker (typically found on stale imported beans), more of the coffee oils will travel to the surface of the bean and lose flavour.
These oils will have negative impact upon the grinders (clogging) and brewing units used in autos, resulting in more frequent breakdowns and inferior tasting coffee extraction.
Our SUPERAUTO blend is specially designed for the office and home automatic machines.
The roast is very important where it needs to deliver flavour with some acid to "cut through milk" without being too dark and generating oils that could increase the risk of equipment failure.
SUPERAUTO has taken us 13 years to develop and we continue to optimize this blend to make it the best suited coffee for your office or home automatic coffee machine.
Coffee machines in the office are generally of the Automatic type or configuration - performing the grind, dose, tamp, brew and sometimes milk without the need for human intervention - and whilst they are fast and efficient (and importantly very clean externally) at these tasks, the reality is there are trade-offs and compromises you pay for this benefit.......namely all the good stuff we wnat in a coffee - flavor, body, sweetness, complexity, acidity, etc..........as somewhat muted by the automation.
The #1 challenge with automatic coffee machines is the relative lower levels of dosage - specialty cafes use 20+grams per shot versus Automatic machines using between 8g and 14g.
We use quality 100% arabica coffees in this blend of coffee.
There has always been the temptation to introduce some robusta to boost caffeine levels, but as we all know that most robusta coffees impart varying levels of flavor taint - rubber, wood, leather, tar, etc. I really can't accept that lowering the sweetness profile of a coffee for the sake of higher caffeine is justified.
