Order our high quality Barista blend coffee beans online.
It was one of our first coffees we created more than 15 years ago and it's 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 which means the cup profile will vary over 4 month periods as we apply blend designs that utilize our best options in each season - a coffee that continues to evolve. Many coffee growing origins have 2 crops per year and that translates into many lot changes throughout a calendar period.
For example, if we are really enjoying a particular bean, such as PNG Highlands AA, or the superb Brazil Cambara, we will engineer these great beans into the Barista blend so that it continues to out-perform the coffees offered by others.
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.
Barista is roasted daily in our state of the art Roasting Facility - one of the best in Australia.
There is a wonderful fusion of nut, caramel, praline and dark chocolate in this blend - almost like a snickers bar.
This coffee, along with our Espresso blend were the very first 2 coffees we created more than 12 years 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 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........
Consistent and reliable.6 May 2017When I wake up there's one thing on my mind, "So pleased my 'Barista' is there to wake me up." Barista blend produces a reliable fullness of flavour without an unfriendly bite. It welcomes you to bottom of your 1st cup and lingers to a finish of roasty nut, hints of caramel and fresh berry. I'll try 'Suweet' next but will likely stick to Barista as my staple.
