We recommend trying one of our Discovery Collections. There are three to choose from and each collection includes three different coffees - allowing you to try a range of roast & flavour profiles. Still have questions? Send us an email at email@example.com and we are happy to help you choose the right coffee for you!
Both! All of our coffees are kept whole beans until you specify your preferred brewing method in the drop down menu on the product page. Choose Whole Bean if you prefer your coffee not ground.
Our "espresso" grind setting assumes that customers will use the coffee with pressurized baskets. This is because there simply is no grind setting that will work for all (or even most) customers using an espresso machine otherwise. More than any other brewing method, espresso requires the ability to dial in and make adjustments to grind size depending on bean type, roast style, age, taste, and recipe. Furthermore, because ground coffee off-gasses very quickly, even the most finely ground coffee loses its ability to properly slow the flow of high-pressure water after a few days. Pressurized baskets were invented to solve this problem. We recommend that aspiring home baristas purchase a grinder suitable for espresso (such as the Breville SmartGrind Pro), or use an espresso machine with one built-in (such as the Breville Barista Touch, or Barista Pro) Both are available in our online shop.
Turbo Espresso and Skyhawk Dark Roast are our most popular crowd pleasers. With just a touch of roast and a caramel undertone, they are sure to be a staple in your home or office as well.
Yes, we carry a Certified Organic decaf coffee that uses the Swiss Water process for a 99.9% caffeine-free coffee. This process uses only water with no chemical additives, leaving the flavor of the coffee intact. Learn more about the process in our blog post.
We recommend "resting" our coffee anywhere from 3 - 7 days from the roast date before serving - this allows the beans to off-gas and makes it easier to work with and maintain your dial-in settings.
For optimal quality it is recommended that coffee be consumed within 30 days of the roast date - and resealing the zipper between uses. Coffee after 30 days isn’t suddenly bad though, it just isn’t as fresh tasting and vibrant..
Store your coffee in a cool and dry place, like a cupboard. Between uses reseal the zipper on the bag to keep your beans tasting fresh longer.
We rotate our menu seasonally to offer only the freshest coffees at all times. Look for it again next year, it is something to look forward to! In the meantime, check out our current fresh arrivals - we offer a diverse range of flavours and there is surely something similar to your favourite.
Check out our handy brew guides. Our brew guides are a great way to start or refine your coffee experience at home. Need new brewing equipment? Check out our gear page for our favourite brewers and accessories.
We source and roast the highest quality green coffee available, as such, we do not need to roast exceptionally dark to attain many of the qualities that our customers love about a delicious dark roast; dark chocolate, nutty, and rich caramel notes are all present in our Turbo, Skyhawk and Rivet offerings.
If you’re looking for something with lower acidity and more full bodied, we’d recommend the Turbo or Outbound Espresso blends - they are full bodied and well balanced and low acidity. If you are, in fact, looking for something bright and more acidic - Ace Espresso is our brightest and fruitiest, while still a balanced espresso.
Yes, our low acid options are Skyhawk, Rivet and Turbo. Turbo is a classic espresso that also doubles as a filter option, and Skyhawk and Rivet (our darkest roasts) are both low-acid filter options that are caramelly, chocolaty, and nutty.
This is normal for lighter roasts. The lighter bits you are seeing is the "chaff" that is left in the crease of the coffee bean. In dark roasts, this material is burned away, but in light roasts it sticks around. It doesn't taste of anything, so it won't affect flavour.
We roast on demand to ensure the freshest coffee, then package and ship daily.
At Propeller Coffee Co, we believe Cold Brew should be cold, and so our process never uses heat. Instead, we use micron filtration on our cold brew, ensuring maximum flavour, with minimal intervention.
Our black labels signify products that are available year-round, such as our espresso blends, filter blends, and our Swiss Water Process Decaf. White labelled coffees are our rotating selection of single-origin beans that change month to month, as new, fresh coffees come in from around the world. Black labels are great for customers who enjoy brewing something perennial, while our white label coffees are for those who want to shake things up.
“Single origin” means that a coffee is not blended, but rather an offering of coffee from one traceable source, be it a particular coffee-growing region, a smaller community of producers, or even a single farm. Our white-labelled single origin coffees are always roasted so as to showcase the unique characteristics of coffees grown, harvested, and processed at these origins.
Our online shop is available 24/7. If you are looking for retailers close to where you live, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to point you to your local retailer.
