Enjoy Coffee Selectors’ recent Home Barista Awarded Collection
Coffee lovers alert! HUNTERhunter. is ecstatic to exclusively announce the winners of the coveted Home Baristas Awards Collection, just in time for Christmas!
Coffee lovers and home baristas across Australia have cast their winning votes for their favourite beans so they can savour their top picks again over the festive season and have awarded the top three medals to two exciting newcomers to the Aussie roasting scene. Daylight in Perth (gold medal) Cool Hands in Melbourne (silver medal) and Tasmanian trailblazer who set alight the Launceston coffee scene twelve years ago, the aptly named Ritual roasters (bronze medal).
To celebrate this goodie box, we caught up with Jess, the director of Coffee Selectors at home to chat about all things Home Baristas and their recently announced winners!
So, what roasts can you expect in this one-of-a-kind coffee subscription box? First up is none other than this Coffee Selectors newbie, and Home Barista’s Gold Medal winner, Dawn roast by Perth-based roastery, Daylight Coffee Roasters.
Baristas turned roasters (and good mates), Jake Chapman and Alex Lowes, established the roastery in March this year with a vision to bring great coffee to the masses! Because why should great coffee be reserved for the elite or coffee nerds?
In only a few short months, the duo is already making headway by providing some of Perth’s top cafes with their fabulous house coffees and single origins and now you can enjoy their roast at home!
Their house roast, Dawn is a single origin from washed beans grown in the Kaw Kaw Mountain region of Papua New Guinea and air roasted to perfection on the magnificent Loring S15 Falcon to deliver a consistent and balanced bold taste with notes of milk chocolate, hazelnut, and local honey.
“This is your every day, any time of the day coffee – expect different layers of sweetness in every mouthful. Sweet and bold with extremely low acidity and medium sweetness.”
Up next is Home Baristas’ Silver Medal winner, Ro Sham Bo by Melbourne brand, by Cool Hand Coffee roasters! For long-time Coffee Selectors customers, you’ll be well across this incredible roastery and their divine coffee offering.
“Ro Sham Bo is the first blend created by new kids on the block, Melbournite Jack Vicars and Colombian Sebastian Farias who launched their Cool Hand Coffee roastery last May, with a mission to play up the playful and cheekier side of our great Aussie coffee culture.”
This natural bean from Brazil results in unique a subtle fruity flavour with hints of cherries combined with the boldness of sweeter chocolate, crème brûlée, and caramel. It’s the perfect combination for all-day drinking coffee or to be mixed for a cheeky Irish coffee!
The Bronze Medal winner for this round of the Home Barista Awarded Collection is none other than the Reserve Blend by Tasmania’s Ritual Coffee Roasters.
“Some rituals come and go. But as coffee lovers, our first morning brew is always the most important ritual of all. This aptly named roasted has played a pioneering and vibrant part of Launceston’s coffee scene since they launched 12-years ago.”
The Ritual Blend can be found in numerous cafes, wineries, and even restaurants all over Tasmania, and now, Coffee Selectors is giving you the opportunity to experience it from the comfort of your own home. Pour your cup and enjoy the creamy chocolate notes with a hint of apricot.
To celebrate the festive season, you can also expect a bag from the incredible Sydney-based Stitch Coffee Roasters with their Lamington blend! This NSW roaster introduced Coffee Selectors customers to their popular Jaffa flavour last Christmas, so this year, you’re getting the chance to taste test this iconic Aussie flavour!
“A trio blend of washed and natural beans produces a medium espresso with notes of milk chocolate, berries, and macadamia that make the perfect espresso. Add some creamy milk and you’ll have the coffee version of the lamington!”
So, what are you waiting for? Make every day a BREWtiful day when you order Coffee Selectors Home Barista Awarded Collection or choose one of their coffee subscriptions for the gift that keeps on giving.
