Our blend

Millers Coffee is a taste. Fresh tastes best. We roast together a green blend of three different origins. Sigria, Medellin Excelso, and Kenya AA.

 

This blend produces a coffee that has a clean distinctive flavour and aroma.

 

The degree of roast is dark but with no oil on the surface of the beans. The roasted beans are designed to be used primarily in the espresso machine and will produce a full strong flavour without any bitterness. How amazing to see virtually odourless green beans spring into life when roasted.

 

At around 215ºC each roast takes approximately 20mins and during that time a moisture loss of around 20% occurs. Once roasted the coffee is packed and usually dispatched on the same day. The staling process has already begun.

Papua New Guinea: Sigri A 40%

 

This country is a more recent producer. Coffee was first grown commercially in the early 1950′s but only in more recent years has it appeared on the world market where its popularity has grown fast.

 

Coffee tree sketch Sigri Coffee Estate is known for its excellence. Situated in the 40 mile long Wahgi valley in the eastern highlands province the coffee is a 100% high grown washed Arabica.

 

The estate is highly regarded for its programmes of sustainability both in regards to the husbandry and care of the plants and also to the community that it serves. The people who work for the company are offered health care and education.
