Sourcing: Julius is the result of extensive market testing and research into developing tastes in Australia's sophisticated boutique coffee scene. Coffees from the high plateaus of South America and volcanic soils of Central America combine with specialty beans from the Horn of Africa and the East Indies to create a blend rich in fine aromas and flavours.
Roasting Profile: Julius is a single phase medium roast balancing strength with subtlety. The small batch roasting enables close monitoring of the exotic boutique coffees in this unique blend.
Aroma: The medium roast enhances the personality and fine aromas of this superb boutique coffee. Spicy highlights harmonize to perfection with robust qualities of other inputs to the blend.
Appearance: Expect a deep, reddish brown crema with lasting viscosity. The underlying coffee is deep brown in colour.
Tasting Notes: Julius is an intricate blend designed to satisfy the most discerning espresso drinker but retains its "cut-through" of underlying strength in the many milk-based coffees now served. The result of using coffees from three major growing regions delivers a complexity and balance found where the skill of the blender meets the most exacting roasting standards. Truly one of our finest boutique coffees.
