How to Make Sustainable Coffee Choices

Not many of us stare at our morning coffee and wonder what impact it has had on our environment. More often than not we’re slamming it down, or sitting and sipping it while thinking about our ever-growing to-do lists. But our coffee choices can make an impact on our world, the environment and the choices that coffee growers make. You see the more people who opt for sustainable coffee options, the more environmentally friendly the farmers will become – hopefully!

Cold Brew Coffee for Tea Drinkers

Coffee for tea drinkers? Have we gone completely bonkers? The answer is, of course not. Made with our very own Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Single Origin coffee, this recipe is the perfect summer refresher for coffee and tea drinkers alike.

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is ideal for this recipe because it’s light roasted, resulting in a softer taste. Generally speaking, Ethiopian coffee is quite fruity in taste so you can imagine the beautiful flavours released in our Yirgacheffe – a very clean, sweet drink with soft lemon flavours. Delish! 

This is why we think this Cold Brew recipe made with Ethiopian Yirgacheffe will be a tea drinker’s heaven. The soft fruity flavours that are released through this method are similar to a herbal tea,  with a comparable amount of caffeine compared to that awesome hit of espresso.

Now for the recipe itself. This is so easy and the best part is once you’ve whipped up a batch you can keep it in the fridge for those thirsty moments that need a little caffeinated kick.

Cold Brew Recipe

What you need;
– 200g Coffee, ground coarse (filter/plunger grind)
– 2L filtered water
– Large jar 
– Muslin cloth (or equivalent)
– String

Instructions
1. Measure out 200gms of coffee and grind fresh if you’re using beans.
2. Place coffee in muslin cloth and seal with string.
3. Fill the container with the 2L of filtered water.
4. Submerge your coffee gently into to the container and seal.
5. Let the coffee infuse in the fridge for 12 hours.       
6. Remove coffee and muslin coth.
7. Serve!

Top tip: If any coffee grounds escape from the muslin, pour the entire cold brew through a clean muslin cloth to strain out the rogue coffee grounds.

Notes:

  • This recipe can be used with any of our coffees though the flavour result will be different.
  • For a stronger or weaker tasting coffee, increase or decrease the amount of coffee used.
  • How fine/coarse you grind the coffee will also effect the taste. If you grind too fine (similar to an espresso grind) the cold brew will taste a lot stronger.
  • Depending on our mood, we sometimes add a slice of orange to our Cold Brew which give it a lovely summer vibe.

Enjoy!

Cafe Profile: Buddha Bowl

You won’t find Buddha Bowl on the main drag of Newtown – it’s a bit too special for the hustle and bustle of a crowded main street. No, this cafe is a destination; an experience and so it lives at the bottom of a converted flour mill in the quaint back streets of Newtown. The history of this stunning building with exposed wooden beams, original brick work and fixtures simply adds the unique atmosphere of this place.

The Sacred Grounds Fairtrade Story

Did you know it takes approx 186 coffee beans to make one cup of coffee? With every single bean being picked and processed by hand, it’s a lot of work. This is why we at Sacred Grounds have been supporting Fairtrade coffee for over a decade now

If you don’t know what Fairtrade does, in essence they ensure that these hard working farmers are being paid fairly for their time so that their businesses remain sustainable.
