Like wine, whisky or chocolate, coffee has distinct flavour profiles – and a world of tastes that go with them. We wanted to capture and celebrate these flavour profiles without compromising on the convenience of the capsule, so we created our own range, Merchant Harbour, with three bespoke blends that cater to bold, balanced and mild flavour profiles. Whether you’re the choosier kind or you’ve got one blend on your mind, our range has you covered.
From the hot, humid plantations in India to the altitudes of South America, we source our beans across multiple continents and countries across the equatorial ‘Coffee Belt’ in order to bring the highest quality coffee to you. Coffee nerds like us will know that the provenance of coffee beans has a huge impact on the flavour, with things like altitude, temperature, rainfall and sunlight all playing a role into the final taste of your morning coffee. Working with our suppliers, we balance the sweeter, balanced tones of Latin American beans with the spicier woodiness of Indian beans, for an unforgettable flavour.
Once we’ve sourced the premium selection of global beans, we work with Australia’s leading coffee roasters to produce a distinct, delicious taste across every batch. With an unparalleled passion (some might say obsession) for balance, taste and flavour nuance, our roaster uses a traditional Italian style slow-roasting technique. Why this style? It ensures every bean is evenly roasted, and the micro-roasting approach allows us to continue to refine, adjust and improve our coffee in every batch.
