Our Urban Brew Coffee Break Down

Our Urban Brew Coffee Break Down

There’s a bit of mystery behind our coffee pods. You may be confused about what makes each intensity different, or you’re just curious to learn more about our coffee, which is great! Some common questions we receive include: What flavours will I experience from each intensity? How much caffeine is in each pod? Where do your beans come from? Wonder no more, because I’m going to spill the beans below!

Our Fairtrade coffee beans begin their precious life in the best coffee growing regions all around the world, including South America, Honduras, India and Mexico. Here they are well looked after and raised until they are ready to leave their nests and continue to the next chapter in their life with us in Adelaide. Once they’ve arrived, our expert coffee roaster Sven greets them and carefully inspects them to ensure each bean is high quality before he roasts them, ensuring that each batch has the perfect flavour profile.


Tasting Notes

We use a specially crafted blend of Arabica and Robusta coffee beans in our recipes. Our Arabica coffee beans have a sweet and medium-bodied profile and are bursting with a fruity sweetness, mellow acidity and have a slight nutty undertone. As our intensities increase we begin blending Robusta coffee beans with our Arabica to create a full-bodied profile. This enhances the nutty characteristics and reduces the acidity.
