Our staff at Just Coffee Cups sampled many different varieties of coffee bean throughout 2015.  We found that our experiences were diverse, pleasing and exciting.  Of course there were a few standout experiences, and these we would like to share with you now.  We would like to award a gold star to the team at Café Uffizi in Caulfield, with special mention for Ian and Gil.  Situated next to Caulfield Park, Café Uffizi offers a stylish café experience and killer coffee.  The man putting smiles on early morning faces is Ian, the head barista and Java king.  Ian and his team are clearly paying attention to what they are doing, their coffee shots are full of flavour and highlights.  The small cappuccino is the selection favoured at Just Coffee Cups, we find that the amount of coffee and milk to be blended perfectly.  Well done!!

2015 was an amazing year for the Australian Coffee Industry, in particular we would like to acknowledge the bean suppliers and roasters.  For us at Just Coffee Cups 2015 was the year of the variety explosion, we literally tried so many different brands and varieties.  We especially enjoyed our visit with Sam from Ciano CoffeeCiano Coffee are setup to impress, their café styled showroom is located in Oakleigh and offers a comfortable setting for sampling their coffee bean.  Sam informed me that their beans are sourced directly from the manufacturer in Europe, I sampled the Devils Blend, and found it to have a strong beginning and a flavoursome ending.

At Just Coffee Cups we aren’t embarrassed to admit that we love our Saeco Xelsis, it is just so darn convenient!  If you are using a similar fully automated machine and not getting the results you were hoping for, we would strongly recommend that you further investigate your machine setup.  The bean of choice running through our machine during 2015 was the Signature Blend from Mio Coffee.  We liked so many things about Signature Blend from Mio Coffee, we especially like its medium flavour which is packed with depth and length.  Thank you Mio Coffee and keep up the good work, with a special mention being awarded.

2016 has only just begun and we are excited about what it may bring.  At Just Coffee Cups we have many exciting plans for 2016.  Already we have introduced a new style of double wall coffee cup, one that features a list of coffee styles that will assist communication down your production line.  Additionally, in response to popular demand we are reintroducing our Matte Black Vertical Bar coffee cup.  With many more exciting things to come, including the launching of our new website, be sure to check in with us again throughout the year.
