Arabic wine. That’s what Europeans used to call coffee in the past. Today, many know it only as dark, chocolate-brown grains stored in various containers.

Coffee represents the beginning of every day for many people around the world. It is a ritual that creates peace and boosts energy for the rest of the day. But coffee it’s not just a drink. It is an event that we try to make as pleasant as possible.

We achieve that through an offer of more than 30 types of coffee. Therefore, it does not matter if you are looking for coffee with tones of hot chocolate, citrus or fruit. We want everyone to find their favourite with us. We use coffee of the highest quality, which comes from almost all over the world. Our greatest pleasure will be when you start discovering this coffee world full of possibilities with us.

Just as grapes used for wine have many varieties, so does the coffee trees. They grow in about 70 countries around the world with suitable climatic conditions. These areas are referred to as the “coffee belt” and are found between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn.

The whole process of coffee beans treatment is fascinating. Before coffee can land in a cup, it has to go a long way, which starts with a coffee tree. The farmer on his plantation takes care of that. Thanks to his many years of experience, he knows when is the best time to collect. Coffee cherries are harvested in a more complex (manual) way, or in a less expensive way, also called unsorted harvesting.

The green beans that the farmer obtains from coffee cherries, which we, the roasters, are interested in, are processed by the three most common methods, which have a significant effect on the overall taste of coffee. The farmer decides whether he wants to process the grains by the wet, dry or honey method. The wet method gives the coffee chocolate and nut tones. Dry (natural, dry) processing will highlight especially fruity and more acidic tastes, and finally the honey method emphasizes sweeter tones and thanks to it, coffee also acquires a consistent body. In addition to these known methods, there are many variants with small differences in the processing. However, they are very easy to recognize in taste. Such methods belong to a common group called experimental.

Roasters then turn the green beans into tasty, roasted beans suitable for making coffee. We offer mainly coffee beans called Coffea Arabica.

If you’ve ever walked through Obchodná street in Bratislava, you may have smelled a delicate, caramel scent that easily overwhelms the senses. Most likely we just roasted one of our coffees. Roasting is the alpha and omega of its final taste. It is due to different roasting that its assorted tastes are created. We are a local roastery that focuses mainly on roasting with the designation City + and Full City, which means darker roasting used mainly for espresso. Over time, however, we have expanded our offer to include light-roasted species, which are principally suitable for preparation using alternative methods, such as V60, Chemex, Vacuum Pot, Nitro Brew, Cold Brew, frenchpress or mocha.
