A coffee designed for oat milk

A coffee designed for oat milk

Elevate your plant based coffee game!

Today you can find oat milk everywhere but traditionally coffee is selected & roasted without oat milk in mind. Since we like a challenge, we decided it was time to set this right! Against all odds, we added a little bit of washed Robusta beans from a coffee farm situated at a high altitude in Uganda. We decided to give this unpopular variety in the specialty coffee scene a chance as the beans were especially prepared for us and processed according to our quality standards.

These Robusta beans bring extra sweetness, more body and create a thick crema. They are blended with our best Arabica beans to ensure the right balance between the oat milk and coffee flavour. Notes of dark chocolate & brown sugar.

Facts about oat milk

Why has oat milk become so popular? Firstly oat milk is accessible to a lot of people who can’t drink other types of milk. Secondly, it has a low environmental impact and is a sustainable system: if you compare a 200 ml glass of oat milk vs. 200 ml glass of cow milk, you get this: to produce the glass of oat milk, about 0.8 square meters of land and 5 liters of water is requered. The CO2 emission is just under 0.3 kg. To produce a 200 ml glass of cow’s milk 3.9 square kms of land and about 120 litres of water is required. The CO2 emission is just above 0.6 kg. That’s a massive difference!

How to store pre-ground coffee

Temporarily, our Year Round coffees are also available to order as filter grind. As the quality of pre-ground coffee decreases faster than beans, we advise you to follow the tips below to maintain the flavour of your coffee for as long as possible. 

  • When you’ve opened the bag, store it airtight. Use a container or a clip to close the bag.
  • Always store coffee in the kitchen cabinet, and not in the fridge.
  • Do you like to store your coffee for a longer period? The best option is to vacuum and freeze the coffee. Online you can find several machines  to do this. 
  • The quality of ground coffee decreases faster than of coffee beans. Our advice is therefore to store pre-ground coffee for a maximum of two weeks.

The recipe below works well for V60, Aeropress, French Press en Clever Drip. 

  • 15 grams of coffee OR about 1 healthy tablespoon  
  • 250 grams of water OR about 1 glass of water  
  • Make sure the water is nice and hot. We recommend slightly under the boil.
  • Drip (for example V60): If your coffee is done brewing in under 2 minutes, add more coffee. If the coffee takes longer than 3 minutes to brew, use less coffee.
  • Immersion (for example Aeropress, French Press, Clever Drip): Brew your coffee for 3 minutes. If you find your coffee to be too strong, use less coffee. If you find your coffee to be too weak, use more coffee.

During the Corona crisis we also offer pre-ground coffee, to make life a little easier for people who are stuck at home. Usually, we only sell beans as this keeps the aromas in and creates a better flavour.

Would you like to grind coffee yourself? We offer several grinders in our webshop.

Enjoy !
