A little about us

Why Settle?

At Coffee and Tea Supplies we only use 100% Arabica beans because they are sweeter, more aromatic and less bitter and astringent than Robusta. Robusta is a stronger, more bitter coffee that contains more Chlorogenic acid, which may cause gastric disorders for some people.

We will not compromise our quest for great coffee by using Robusta, even in combination with Arabica.

Arabica beans are grown at higher elevations than Robusta, usually between 1000m to 2000m. Cooler weather at higher elevations cause the beans to take longer to mature and so become denser, intensifying the wonderful flavours that we seek.

These beans are more expensive because the plants yield less coffee per year, are more difficult to pick at the higher elevations and because they produce a higher quality coffee beverage.
