At Heart of Hall fabulous coffee is a priority. So we have made it our business to choose a fabulous, local coffee roaster as well as find baristas who know and love their craft!
I know you are wondering what we actually do so that every cup of coffee is so good? Here’s our secret...
Beans: Only great quality raw beans can be made into great coffee! We love our local coffee roaster who care deeply about what they do and where their coffee beans come from. We get our beans from Small Batch Coffee Roasting Co., located in North Melbourne (famous for their first café, The Auction Rooms). Their coffee is grown sustainably and is responsibly sourced from the world’s great coffee regions. The team at Small Batch painstakingly source and buy the best raw ingredients (AKA green beans) directly from producers.
They know their coffee producers extremely well and they regularly visit the coffee-growing regions of El Salvador, Colombia, Guatemala, and Costa Rica to choose the best beans. They also support these growers by providing fair pay for their crops and upgrading farming equipment to assist with good, organic farming practices. Small Batch also selects African coffee through 3rd parties who share their values.
Roasting: Small Batch know how to get the best flavour from their green beans. The roast is different for each type of bean and also on how the bean will eventually be brewed. Lighter roasts will usually be more suited for milder coffee styles such a pour-over brews where darker roasts are better suited to espresso brews. The Small Batch Candyman served at Heart of Hall is a sweet, balanced espresso blend that tastes great with or without milk.
