We just love fresh roasted coffee!
SETTING THE SCENE………………….
With the lifting of the siege of Vienna in 1683, the retreating Turkish armies,
left on the field of battle sacks of coffee,thus bringing to Europe almost
the first reference to coffee drinking,with the founding of the
first coffee house in Vienna.
Today Coffee is grown around the world between the Tropics of Cancer and
Capricorn at altitudes of 900 metres and above.
Coffee cultivation is as varied as wine production.A coffee plant takes up to
four years to grow before a first crop.Soil plays as important a role in coffee
growing as the ‘Terroir’ does in wine production.Shade,rainfall,altitude and
ambient temperature, all play an important part,developing the
unique flavour of each coffee.
