When it comes to our coffee blends we combine two or more single origin coffees, sometimes roasted at different levels, blended together. This creates a unique and exciting coffee taste that would not be naturally found in the beans alone.
Named after the port it is shipped out of, our Brazilian Koffee is actually Oberon and comes from the Cerrado region. Oberon coffee could be described as the Queen of Brazilian coffee. Only the best and finest coffees from Brazil’s Cerrado region find their way into Oberon. The Oberon is the perfect blend of the three main characteristics found in coffee (acidity, body and sweetness). This makes for a well-balanced coffee that has pleasant, citric acidity, a smooth and full body, nice sweetness, and a dark chocolate flavor.
Because Cerrado is mainly dry and flat, producers can worry less about the elements and focus more of their time and energy in producing great coffee. The cherries are picked at the best stage of their maturation, which allows the bean to absorb as much sweetness as possible.
**Coffee in this area uses environmentally safe wash processes, often by hand.**

How it is Delivered:
Comes in a 12 oz. kraft stand up bag with degassing valve to ensure freshness
Get whole bean or choose from several grind options
Immediately after roasting, the coffee is packaged into 5 lb nitrogen-flushed bags. This process forces nitrogen into the package, replacing the oxygen, that would otherwise quickly age the coffee. The nitrogen preserves the wonderful flavor characteristics of fresh-roasted coffee. Trvl Love Koffee also utilizes "vent tape" technology which allows the coffee to de-gas, but prevents exposure to oxygen.
Grind Type Guide
These days coffee shops are on every corner, but nothing is quiet as satisfying as brewing the perfect cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home. It saves money and you can make it just the way you like it. There are different types of grinds that go with the different types of coffee makers. I will go over all the grinds we offer.
French Press Grind
First off, we have your French Press. This process of brewing is an immersion. The grinds are immersed in the water together to extract that yummy goodness. A French Press is easy and makes a delicious cup of coffee. The grinds are coarse. The beans should be ground in a burr grinder versus the blade grinder. When using a French Press, you will just need water, coffee, and the press. You measure out the grounds: 2 Tablespoons of coffee to 8 ounces water. Boil the water. Add the grounds and water into the press and let the coffee steep. After about 4 minutes is up, press down on the top of the press. Press slowly. It will separate the grinds and you are now ready to pour and drink.
The French Press Grind is perfect for making Cold Brews too. You just need some water, a mason jar, and time to get this Cold Brew creation to come to life. Pick any coffee in this grind to try out a cold brew. Once you have your base, add milk or water to dilute and enjoy the rush! You can also use the Percolator Grind for Cold brew as well. It is a little bit course. You can play around with the grind to see which suits you best.
Next up, the auto drip machine. This is the Bunn or the Mr. Coffee pot. We call this the Standard Grind. This is the most widely used grind. If you use the trusty ole "coffee pot" then this is a process of running the water through the coffee grounds to create the magic we call coffee. The standard grind is medium-coarse. This is what is sold at most groceries stores and is most used. Also, this grind can be used in a Siphon coffee machine.
Espresso grind is exactly that. It should be used for the Espresso machine and the Moka pot method. If you have an espresso machine at home, this is what you want to use. These grinds are fine in texture. Espresso is a delicate process. If this is your choice of coffee, you can perfect your method how you choose.
Turkish may be your method of brewing. This is a very delicious way to take your morning coffee. You will need your favorite Ibrik, 3 oz of water, a spoon of sugar and a stove. Once you add these together, let it foam up 3 times and it is ready to pour. This grind is very fine, almost a powder. Beautiful brewing method and is the oldest to date. We use stoves now versus the hot sand to heat the coffee.
Classic Drip Grind
Lastly, we have the Classic Drip Grind. It is a medium-coarse grind that works for coffee methods of brewing by Chemex or a pour over. These are both great ways to brew your coffee grinds. When doing this use a burr grinder to ensure it does not get too fine and pass through the filter with these methods.
These are just a few different types of grinds that are most popular, and what we carry at Trvl Love Koffe. The type you choose should depend on the machine you will use. Therefore, it matters. The best cup comes from getting the right grind. We suggest you get whole bean and grind it your way as you use it. This ensures a fresher coffee. We always suggest that you order whole bean but understand everyone does not have a home coffee grinder. Whichever option you choose, it is all coffee and we approve!
