Posted on April 20, 2015 by Ernest Tong

Here at Coffex Coffee Roasters, we love the coffee roast as much as you do. Our morning rituals might be similar to yours without you even knowing it.

That morning cup of joe, the smell of freshly brewed coffee, the sound of milk frothing and the first sip of delicious dark decadent coffee. It's hypnotic properties boils down to one very important alkaloid. 

Caffeine

Impressively, caffeine can transform from a solid to a gaseous phase without undergoing an intermediate phase (i.e. liquid) in a process called sublimation. *coffee chemistry

It's solubility in water is increased 30-fold in coffee brewing temperatures and thus it readily dissolves into solution. It is also possibly the sole reason why people choose to drink coffee over other numerous beverages. *coffee chemistry

These are just some of the amazing properties of this well known compound. 

 Here are some positives of consuming Caffeine

 

  1. Alertness/Wakefulness
    Achieved by blocking adenosine receptors in the brain
  1. Pain relief
    Caffeine reduces inflammation and helps to block the perception of pain in the brain.
  1. Endurance
    It is believed that caffeine has the ability to influence the way muscles utilize glycogen allowing them to function longer before fatigue sets in.
  1. Motivation / Productivity
    It increases dopamine levels, which produces positive state of mind.
  1. Neurological conditions
    It is believed that caffeine can help prevent or delay Alzheimers disease and Parkinson Disease as well as treat some types of hyperactivity disorder.

Merry Christmas! It is indeed the season to be jolly!

Posted on December 09, 2014 by Ernest Tong

Christmas is indeed the reason to be jolly!

Season greetings to all of you! We would like to thank all our loyal customers who showed us tremendous support and loyalty throughout this year.

It has definitely been a whirlwind year for us here at Coffex Coffee Roasters. Let’s have great recap of what the year has been for us.

  • Sustainability Launch

At the start of the year, Coffex Coffee roasters proudly supported and participated in our 5th Sustainable Living Festival. Held annually in Birrarung Marr by the Yarra, this event celebrates and promotes Sustainable Living to Australians

During the very start of the event, Coffex Coffee Roasters launched its brand new website on Valentines Day 2014. It was with great satisfaction that we achieved this milestone after having worked on it for around 6 months. www.coffex.com.au has been reincarnated to what you see today as our main portal into our world of coffee. Check our new online store and sign up to our e-Newsletter for great deals on all your coffee and tea.

 

  • Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix 2014

Coffex Coffee Roasters were back again and proudly sponsoring our 3rd Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix in a row. The race-goers were streaming in and the cars were furious on track, but Coffex Coffee remained calm and served up caffeine all the way to pole position.

 

  • And then, there were MICE.

After our successful show at last year’s MICE, where we had showcased our initial stages of Coffex Coffee’s re-branding, we arrived at this year’s MICE with an amazing transformation. Coffex Coffee Roasters was revealed and our slick new branding rolled into MICE.

We received much praise for our new branding and packaging. Industry friends and show attendees were very supportive and showed us a lot of love during the MICE.

 

During the exhibition, a specially selected single origin coffee from Tony Strickett, our R&D Manager, was roasted and served up to show attendees. Coffex Coffee’s first Panama Geisha from the Auromar Estate. It was a treat!

 

On the technology front, after securing distribution rights with Curtis, Coffex Coffee Roasters showcased the Curtis Gold Cup brewer, a 1-touch fully automatic and programmable specialty coffee brewer.

 

  • Sydney experiencing The Coffee Experience

Sydney hosted its first inaugural coffee exhibition show in the form of The Coffee Experience. Launched and hosted by the same people behind MICE, we treated our Sydney crowd of fans to some amazing coffee and technology.

 

A brilliant roast of Kenya Mugaya AA and Rwanda Mbilima were on show at the stand as well as the Curtis Gold Cup brewer.

 

Tony our head of R&D also gave a ‘Technology Presentation’ at the show, highlighting the benefits and ease of use of the Gold Cup brewer.

 

  • MotoGP beckons in Phillip Island

As synonymous as we are with motor sports, Coffex Coffee Roasters proudly sponsored its 4th Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix in its home of Phillip Island.

 

Coffex Coffee’s flagship Superbar made its presence known by being the official coffee for this event.

As we approach Christmas, a reflection of what we’ve done throughout the year certainly shows that we have not been idle in this ever growing and evolving industry. Coffex Coffee Roasters will continue to push the boundaries of innovation and perfect our art of roasting the perfect bean better.

 

Here’s to you, our loyal and supportive customers - Merry Christmas, Season Greetings and a Happy New year!

 

PS: Here's a special for Christmas!

Where does Coffex Coffee Roasters source their coffee beans?

Posted on December 03, 2014 by Rory Clark

Coffex Coffee Roasters source their coffee beans from all of the major coffee growing regions around the world. Each of our classic blends; Superbar, Supremo, Scurro, Mokka and Classico are sourced from the same (or similar) regions depending on seasonal availability. We also source direct from coffee farms to get micro lots of specialty coffee for our seasonal specialty blends and single origin coffee.

So where is coffee grown?

From humble origins in Africa, coffee cultivation migrated around the world, forming a belt roughly bounded by the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Growing regions typically offer moderate sunshine and rain, steady temperatures around 20ºC, and rich, porous soil. Terrior (soil) has a big impact on the flavours from beans around the world. Here is a very brief overview of the typical flavours from some of our favourite regions:

Central America

  • We can expect cup qualities from this region to contain varying amounts of acidity (more applely and malic in Guatemala; cherry-like from Mexico) and a smooth, sugar-browning sweetness that is sometimes soft like chocolate or buttery like flaky pastry crust.

 

Brazil

  • Brazilian beans—especially those that are pulped natural or "Brazil natural"—have a pronounced peanut quality and heavy body that makes them common components in espresso blends. Chocolate and some spice is typical, and the coffees tend to linger a bit in the mouth, with a less clean aftertaste than other South American regions' stuff.

 

Ethiopia

  • Naturally processed Ethiopian coffees often have a syrupy body that accompanies a densely sweet berry flavour, typically blueberry or strawberry. Washed coffees often express jasmine or lemongrass characteristics, and are lighter and drier on the palate.

 

Kenya

  • Big, bold, and juicy, Kenyan coffees are a product of their variety. Much of the coffee is grown without shade. These elements (and others) marry to give Kenyan coffees a mouth-puckering savoury-sweet characteristic that sometimes manifests as a tomato-like acidity, other times a blackcurrant tartness.

    Let's Keep The Coffee Fresh

    Posted on October 08, 2014 by Rory Clark

    How long does coffee stay fresh after opening the packet?

    Here at Coffex Coffee Roasters we want you to enjoy your coffee and have the best experience with each and every cup. So here are some pointers on keeping your coffee fresh.

    Roasted coffee is a perishable product. There are four main enemies of roasted beans:

    1. Air
    2. Moisture
    3. Temperature
    4. Light

    These culprits are the biggest cause of stale, flavourless brew. We recommend storing your coffee beans (or ground coffee) in a clean, dry, airtight container in a nice cool and dark place. It is not recommended that you store you coffee in the refrigerator, because coffee tends to absorb flavours and moisture and the fridge is quite humid. Freezing coffee is not recommended as taking the coffee in and out of the freezer each time you brew will cause condensation and not allow for airtight storage.

     If you follow the above pointers then your coffee should last at least 10 days to a fortnight after opening. After this, the flavour will generally start to fade as the coffee releases gases and becomes stale.

    The health benefits of a coffee a day

    Posted on September 22, 2014 by Ernest Tong

    It was not long ago that some people thought that coffee might be bad for your health. But contrary to these beliefs, recent studies by Harvard University School of Public Health and American Heart Association have found many health benefits to drinking several cups of coffee a day.

    Studies have shown that drinking coffee may protect against Parkinson's disease, type 2 diabetes and liver disease, including liver cancer. It also appears to improve cognitive function and decrease the risk of depression. Even more reason to enjoy another cup of delicious Coffex coffee.
     Here are some of the benefits to enjoying many of the Coffex coffee blends:

    Reduced risk of colon cancer:
    Drinking four or more cups of coffee per day could lower your risk of colon cancer by 15 percent.

    Reduced risk of Parkinson's disease:
    Drinking two to three cups a day could reduce your risk of developing Parkinson's by a quarter.

    Lowers risk of depression:
    Having at least four cups a day may lower your risk of depression by 20 percent.
    Lowers risk of ovarian cancer:
    Drinking three cups a day may reduce your risk of ovarian cancer by 20 percent.

    Lowers risk of liver cancer:
    Three cups a day may cut your risk of liver cancer in half.

    Lower risk of skin cancers:
    Drinking six cups a day has been shown to lower the risk of skin cancer by 31 percent.

    Wards off Alzheimer's:
    Researchers discovered that participants who drank three to five cups of coffee per day had about a 65% decreased chance of developing Alzheimer's disease or dementia later on in life.

    Cardiovascular Protection:
    According to a Japanese study of more than 76,000 participants, men consuming one to two cups of coffee daily reduced their risk of dying from a cardiovascular disease by as much as 38%. 

    Diabetes Defence:
    Harvard researchers discovered that long-term coffee drinkers had a significantly reduced risk of developing type-2 diabetes and statistics indicated the risk decreased the more they drank. Just remember to limit your sugar!
    If you are have high blood pressure, are pregnant or have trouble sleeping then we recommend that you limit your caffeine intake.

    Otherwise, based on the above research, Coffex recommends that people enjoy at least 2-3 cups a day. Whether you like your coffee black, with milk or a classic filter brew - we have a vast array of delicious blends and varieties to suit everyone.So drink up to your health!
