Coffee Notes

Presented by Espresso Company Australia


Browse the judges notes on 5 great coffees. Café Culture’s panel of judges have critiqued these coffees to bring you some unique examples of fine Australian coffee roasting. All coffees were evaluated first as espresso and then as milk- based.





Toby’s Estate – Woolloomooloo Blend

Woolloomooloo Blend maintains a very good body, an earthy round mouthfeel with cocoa and a hint of stone fruit sweetness similar to that of a plum creating a unique balance as a delicate yet daring espresso. The addition of milk highlights the depth of this coffee with hints of maple syrup and hazelnut.

Elixir Coffee – Narciso Blend

The Narciso blend has a very enticing aroma and is a very pleasant drinking espresso with a syrupy full body and orange marmalade sweetness. Works well with milk based coffee as the balanced espresso cuts through to deliver milk chocolate and caramel tones.

D’ Angelo Coffee – Blend 1

The aroma of cherries entices you for more of this espresso, soft across the pallet the syrupy bold body holds the full length and the espresso is balanced by a sweetness which completes this diverse yet well rounded espresso. Through milk the dry acidity compliments the body of this coffee perfectly with almond and caramel characteristics.

Roasted Addiqtion – Wild Child

A lively espresso which coats the full pallet, with a golden syrup sweetness and well balanced nectarine stone fruit acidity. The Pure blend is a great choice as either an espresso or milk based coffee with caramel flavours found in the espresso turning into soft toffee tones through a creamy milk based coffee finishing with a slight tobacco aftertaste.

Coffee Guru – Premium Blend

As an espresso this coffee holds a very good body throughout and has a deep berry aroma with a red grape acidity. The sweetness is enhanced with the addition of milk and delivers a hint of caramel with a hazelnut finish.
