As I wrote earlier, I have been trying to up the quality of our coffee.
Out with our previous supplier and in with Blackstar!
One of my personal favorite Cafes in Brisbane has always been Blackstar in Westend. So I just started talking to them naturally and ever since, they have been helping us with the supply of coffee and getting our coffee up to a good level.
We are now proudly offering their Revolution blend for the espresso range and also stock their legendary Cold pressed coffee range.
The coffee extraction technique of Blackstar is simple. The beans are selected from organic fair trade farmers and roasted behind their shopfront in small batches in their cute little roaster, medium-light not to kill the good qualities of the green beans. Then upon extraction, put in heaps more beans and extract with less water, means double sweet intense coffee flavor, less milk or water to dilute the flavors. Coffee is naturally a sweet thing, so even if you don’t add sugar, a latte made with Blackstar beans and method is sweet yet full bodied.
The CPC not only tastes great, it really is a inspiring drink. The stylish design, organic ingredients, cold pressed for a mild full flavor, and they don’t use sugar. They use organic blue agave nectar which I am pretty sure will soon start to become a common term among foodies and healthies. It is a cactus like plant and produces a syrup that is heaps sweeter than sugar so less usage and the GI is much lower than sugar so healthy and less guilt.
Drinking Blackstar also means you are supporting ethical practices, organic farming and a local Brisbane business.
