Our new single origin coffee has arrived, we’re almost done with roasting it and it’ll be ready for you very shortly, definitely in time for work next Monday morning. So, we thought we’d tell you about it before the work week starts so you have something to really look forward to on that Monday morning!! This time we’ve gone over to South America and chosen a bean from the word famous coffee growing country of Colombia. Let's have a look shall we.
Colombian Supremo is the name of our third Single Origin Coffee and it is grown in the rich soils of the Popayan region of Colombia. This is a Region of the Colombian Sierra Nevadas whose coffee is admired for it's quality. Popayan is a luscious area of the Sierra Nevadas with idea rainfall, cloud cover and soil conditions for coffee cultivation. The local micro-climate in this mountainous area helps to prolong the development of the coffee cherry, enhancing the flavours that the beans inside absorb from the fruit itself.
Smooth and full bodied, Colombian Supremo has balanced acidity, subtle berry note, your classic coffee aromas, a nice aftertaste and a very smoooooth mouth feel.
It's a rather superlative name isn't it? Well these are the largest beans that Colombia produces and it is the size of these beans that win them this name; they’re rather large!!
Come down to the brewery and visit the Tumut River Roasters and check out the Colombian Supremo soon! Buy yourself a bag if you like it because, as you probably know, once our single origin is gone its gone!!
Indian Pale Ales (IPA) are heavy on the hop side. The red IPA hails from the United States and, therefore, they are even hoppier than their father, the English IPA. As a rule of thumb, the IPA has a higher alcohol content than its pale ale lineage, however, for the red IPA, we can also factor in the fact that red ales are also generally brewed stronger than their pale ale counterparts. This makes for a strong beer in a red IPA.
Hefeweizen is a straw coloured, usually hazy beer which is very attractive when served in the traditional Bavarian hefeweizen glass in the summer sunshine. Hefeweizens are made with at least 50% wheat in the mash and are not found to be brimming with hops, the flavours mainly come from the yeast instead. You see “Weizen” means wheat (you might remember that from our Dunkelweizen article) and “hefe” means yeast. These, as said, are the main two flavour components of a hefeweizen and the yeast used adds distinct clove and banana notes. Making these beers the perfect, easy drinking beverage in the sunshine.
