We at Bounce Coffee were proudly awarded bronze in the following categories: The Milk Based Category: our Venezia Nuovo, a full bodied blend with quality monsoon origins that provides the caffeine addict a well-earned “Bounce” to kick start their day. The Organic Category: our highly versatile shade grown Colombian. It is a favourite amongst much of our Bounce family. A smooth coffee that can produce an outstanding cup whatever your style! The Australian Category was awarded to a coffee grown on a North Queensland farm, not far from home. The dark chocolate and fruity notes are enough to make anyone proud.



Caffe Migliore

Caffe Migliore’s Fair Trade organic coffee has been a successful and well regarded coffee since it was first established in 2007. The following year (2008) it won a bronze medal at the Golden Bean competition. In 2011 it won a silver medal in the same category and again in 2013. The coffee is ethically minded, as it is 100% Fair Trade and 100% organic. This medium hand roasted coffee has a flavour profile that has been regarded as fruity with specific sweet berry notes; its earthy and deep flavour makes for a complex, well-rounded espresso. Check it out on Facebook!
