What are the origins?

‘Orgins’ is the coffee way of explaining where the particular bean comes from. In the 13th century, coffee was discovered hiding in the Ethiopian highlands. Then the Arabs were the first to cultivate and trade coffee, bringing coffee goodness to the world.

Why do we roast coffee beans?

Roasting coffee beans is super important because without the roasting process, they still contain caffeine, but they don’t have their unique tastes, smells and colours! When coffee beans are roasted their magic flavours are released. They change for the better and some even say that this is when the coffee’s “personality” comes shining through!

Light vs. Medium vs. Dark Roast, what’s the difference and should I care?

Light Roast:
When coffee beans are roasted the caffeine levels are at their maximum. So a light roast still holds the most amount of caffeine. The beans will be a light brown colour and sometimes have a hint of green. They have the most flavour and are the most acidic. The surface is still oily as they haven’t been heated for long enough to burn it off.

Medium Roast:

The medium roast is a great “go to” because the acidic levels are reduced, the flavour is bold and strong but it is more balanced and smooth and the caffeine levels are at a medium intensity. The beans appearance is non-oily and medium brown in colour.

Dark Roast:

The dark roast is lovely and rich in flavour but, because of the roasting time, the beans lose some of their flavours. They have the least amount of caffeine and they are a dark brown almost black colour.

3 tips when choosing your beans from the shop!

Does it have a “Direct Trade” stamp on it? This means the coffee company is working directly with the coffee farm.
Make sure your coffee bag has a “One-way valve”. The small hole that lets out the C02 without letting the air in. Vacuum sealed bags mean that the coffee has been packed for long life and is probably not fresh. The best idea is to buy from your local roaster!

Buy the beans whole and grind yourself. This keeps them super fresh as they don’t last long once grand. Don’t worry your Jura will grind your beans for you!

Hopefully, now you know a bit more about the divine bean floating in your cup. The Jura range of coffee machines have the ability to produce exceptional cups of coffee.
