FAQ – ABOUT FLAVOUR INFUSED COFFEE

What is flavour infused coffee?

Flavour infused coffee is fresh Arabica coffee that has gone through flavour infusion process. Its worth while noting that flavour infusion does not change the coffee properties outside of the addition desired flavour.

How do you infuse coffee with flavour?

We follow a very rigid process when flavouring our coffee. It starts with choosing the best Arabica coffee available on the market and roasting it.  Roasting is a critical step as we need to keep a fine balance between roasting time and type of flavour we use. Straight after roasting we use essential oils and natural flavours to infuse the coffee. The oil penetrates the bean carrying the flavours into the bean.  The beans are then packed and sealed.

How does flavour infused coffee differ to using syrups?

Besides the artificial flavours, preservatives and sugar normally found in syrups the taste is not as sweet while retaining a good balance between the natural taste of finest Arabica coffee and added natural flavour.

How many calories or sugar does flavour infusion add?

The amount is extremely low. We infuse the beans only with natural flavours extracted from fruit and plants. The extraction process takes out the natural flavours only while leaving behind allergens and sugars.

I have an allergy to peanuts is Hazelnut flavour infused coffee safe?

The extraction process used in our flavours takes out only the natural flavour compounds from fruits, nuts and plants etc while leaving behind the allergens. This means that you can enjoy our natural Hazelnut coffees even if you have peanuts allergy.
