    Re: Di Bella Coffee

    We now have received our first official shipment of Elektra coffee machines... let me tell you that this machine has passed every vigorous test we put to it over the last 12 months....

    Our search for a coffee machine company that we can deal direct with (therfore have total input about improvements, design and performance) has spanded 5 years... that is a machine company that is still owned by its founder, where parts are hand made and assembled, access to the owners of the company is available and the tenchinal department accessable, a value price, etc etc... the list goes on .... but most importantly a company that wanted to deal with Di Bella Coffee without us having exclusive agency... we are not a coffee machine company, but a coffee company.... therefore whilst we want to deal direct... we want to be known as brand ambassadors for the Elektra, not agents... if people wish to purchase these coffee machines, they do so directly via the appropriate state agents not from Di Bella Coffee......

    Over the years i have been a big advocate for no coffee company being a sole distributor for a coffee machine brand... i still stick by this today and for this reason have done the deal we have with Elektra....

    Keep in mind that we still endorse, recommend and use Wega from Coffee Works Express.... where these guys are professional, intelligent and above all a pleasure to deal with.......

    From Cow to Cup: Part I

    Di Bella Coffee aims to deliver consistently great quality coffee to our customers and we work hard to understand all factors that can contribute to the overall flavour profile of a blend. One of these factors that has been a topic of hot debate for those in the industry in recent times is milk.

    Just as customers prefer certain Di Bella Coffee specialty blends, they also prefer different types of milk with their coffee. With full cream to low-fat, no-fat and lactose free options to choose from, we’ve created a simple walk through guide to the different varieties of milk (Part I) and how they could affect the taste of your coffee (Part II).

    Pasteurisation of milk was a revolutionary process that was introduced to kill disease-causing organisms and improve the microbial stability of the milk. Though this process involves gentle heating and cooling procedures, it doesn’t interfere at all with the taste or nutritional content of the milk. Ultra High Temperature (UHT) milk is pasteurised, but as its name suggests, at a higher temperature. Contrary to popular belief, there are no preservatives in UHT or longlife milk. Rather, the higher processing temperature completely destroys all live bacteria in the milk, making it sterile before it is sealed inside clean packaging to prevent contamination.

    Though nearly all milk varieties used in cafés around Australia are pasteurised, some of the most popular types of milk aren’t homogenised. Homogenisation is a processing phase that works to eliminate the tendency of milk fat to separate from the milk itself and form a cream line on the surface. Many skim varieties of milk are non-homogenised, as are some varieties of organic full cream milk. Though homogenisation has no nutritional differences than raw milk, there are many advantages of the process including the uniform distribution of fat, full-bodied flavour, a smoother more consistent texture, a more pleasant, white colour and improved ease of digestion. In terms of crafting exceptional coffee, homogenisation of the milk improves pouring capability due to its more consistent texture.

    If you’re interested in seeing how your preferred milk changes the taste of your favourite Di Bella Coffee blend, stay tuned for Part II of From Cow to Cup for more information, or experiment with different varieties of milk to decide for yourself which is best. If you’re unsure, simply wander down to your local supplier of Di Bella Coffee and have our expert baristas deliver the ultimate coffee experience with every milk variety.

    From Cow to Cup: Part II

    In order to establish the foundations of an expert knowledge of coffee, Di Bella Coffee employees take the time to understand the various factors that can influence the final flavour and taste of the coffee in the cup. In From Cow to Cup: Part I, we delivered a simple summary of the different types of milk frequently used in the coffee menu at Di Bella Coffee. In this second instalment of From Cow to Cup, we will examine the ways in which different milk varieties can alter the flavour and texture of your coffee and how milk supply influences the popularity of milk brands.

    As mentioned in From Cow to Cup: Part II, there are a variety of popular milk options that consumers pair with their coffee of choice. At Di Bella Coffee, our permanent range of milk types includes full cream, skim and soy milk with other varieties also included as part of the selection in our partner cafes across Australia. Taste, texture and consistency of the resulting coffee will vary depending on a customer’s preferred type of milk.

    The go-to choice of milk for most customers is full cream milk. This type of milk generally contains between 3.2% – 3.5% of milk fat, giving it a thicker, more creamy consistency than reduced-fat varieties. When full cream milk is heated, it must then be separated before pouring. This is because the cream and milk separate when the milk begins to cool. Di Bella Coffee’s expert baristas use this technique to ensure that these two components are evenly distributed before they are poured into the cup. The resulting coffee is smooth, full-bodied and the taste is somewhat creamier due to the higher fat content of this variety.

    In recent years, customers have grown to prefer skim milk as a substitute in their milk-based coffees. Skim milk, branded as 1% or 2% milk depending on the variety contains less fat than full cream milk (as indicated by these percentages). For this reason, many people have switched to skim milk in order to reduce the fat intake in their diet. Similarly, soy milk has become a popular alternative for those wishing to cut down on their fat intake as it contains around 2% fat. As the name suggests, soy milk is made from soybeans and as a result, is also an ideal substitute for those with lactose intolerance as it is easy to digest and contains no lactose, unlike traditional milk varieties.

    Skim milk and soy milk, though thinner in consistency, are still flavoursome and suited for use in milk-based coffees if heated and poured correctly. Many individuals complain of ‘watery’ coffee if these milk varieties aren’t frothed to the ideal consistency. However, if heated and poured correctly, a coffee based on skim or soy milk can look and taste as delicious as one based on full cream milk. This is where Di Bella Coffee’s talented baristas come into play! By choosing to have your Di Bella Coffee based on skim or soy milk, you can expect to experience a soft, even coffee despite the reduced fat content.

    There are many other varieties of milk that are becoming increasingly popular on the Australian market. One such example is organic milk, which is commonly used in many boutique espresso bars and small cafes around the country and is loved by coffee enthusiasts for its rich and creamy properties in the cup.

    However when deciding on the permanent range of milk that a cafe wishes to make available to its customers, it is important to consider availability and supply as factors of influence. For example, while organic milk is readily available in supermarkets for household use, it is difficult to secure a guaranteed supply for commercial use. In most instances, organic dairy farms are small; meaning output from these sources may fluctuate from season to season. Often these kinds of fluctuations in quality and quantity of supply can result in inconsistent coffee, which is less than ideal for customers who expect the same quality of coffee from their favourite local cafe.

    With the customer in mind, Di Bella Coffee has sourced a secure, reliable supplier of milk for use in our exceptional quality coffees. We understand that consistency is key in ensuring that Di Bella Coffee is coffee worth coming back for. If you’d like to put different milk varieties to the test, visit your local supplier of Di Bella Coffee for exceptional quality coffee tailored to your unique taste preferences.

    Does size matter: the basket debate

    Throughout the various stages of the coffee lifecycle, Di Bella Coffee operates with a key goal in mind: to deliver coffee worth coming back for.

    Our Di Bella Coffee blends are designed to be extracted through 18 grams of coffee over 30 seconds for two single shots to achieve our desired flavour profiles. This basket size is conventionally smaller than many other coffee manufacturers. For example, many of our competitors use baskets that hold up to 24 grams of coffee. Initially it is easy to think that this smaller basket size translates to weaker coffee, however Di Bella Coffee’s specialist understanding of coffee processes ensures that we achieve excellence in the cup.

    Rather than overloading the baskets with more coffee to give you added strength and depth, Di Bella Coffee spends time sourcing coffees and creating blends from the world’s best growing regions. The resulting Di Bella Coffee blends are smooth, balanced and refined with a depth and complexity of flavour that will satisfy your coffee craving. As our blends are crafted with the second cup in mind, you can enjoy the Di Bella Coffee experience again.

    By sourcing the highest quality green bean available, our single origin coffees and range of unique signature blends are designed for use in an 18 gram basket and can be extracted to suit any strength preference. What’s more, our signature blends have been specially designed to suit the Australian coffee drinker’s palate of drinking coffee with milk. This involves ensuring the coffee is crafted so that its strength and flavours not only cut through, but are enhanced when made as a milk-based coffee variety. Taking the time to perfect our signature blends eliminates the likelihood of our customers experiencing an offensive or overpowering coffee where there is only dominant characteristic. This is why Di Bella Coffee truly is coffee worth coming back for.

    Our smaller basket size doesn’t only benefit our valued customers. Di Bella Coffee’s partnering cafe’s also reap the benefits of our quality assurance and blend profiling practices. Because our coffee is of more consistent quality with well-formed flavour profiles, our partner cafes don’t need to use unnecessarily large shots in order to deliver the same exceptional quality coffee you’ve come to expect from Di Bella Coffee. Using less coffee per kilo in each cup of coffee allows our cafes to experience higher value on the amount of coffee served up each week by maximising their yield per kilo. In many instances, this can play a crucial role in generating a positive effect on a café’s bottom line.

    We invite you to put our delicious range of specialty coffee blends to the test. The next time you’re in the mood for a creamy cappuccino or a lusciously smooth latte, head in to your local supplier of Di Bella Coffee. Our loyal customers can attest to the fact that you’ll definitely experience coffee worth coming back for.

    Crème de la Crop – Micro-lots explained

    Each year in coffee growing regions around the world, farmers witness a range of quality variations across the crops they produce. During the harvesting season, farmers begin to notice that certain sections of their crop contain higher quality coffee than the rest. These sections, known as ‘micro-lots’, are the cream of the crop (quite literally!), and as a result are desired by green bean buying specialists the world over.

    There are a number of environmental influences and farming practices that can cause a micro-lot to form. Factors such as the quality of the soil, availability of the shade and selectivity of picking can cause certain areas of the overall crop to produce higher quality green beans. Though these areas cannot be predicted from year to year, farmers are continually on the lookout for potential micro-lots within their crop. Once located, these micro-lots are treated with special care and are harvested and processed separately from the remainder of the crop. The superior quality of the resulting coffee can be attributed to these exceptional farming practices.

    At present, our My Crop to Cup Green Bean Buying Specialist Moshe Tawil sources quality green beans from micro lots in growing regions such as Brazil, Peru, Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Columbia, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

    Through My Crop to Cup, we constantly seek to establish relationships with suitable farmers who are as dedicated to deliver on our promise of exceptional quality as we are. Our commitment to ongoing research and pursuing fruitful trade partnerships ensures that only the best quality coffee makes it from the crop to your cup.

    If you are interested in getting hold of Di Bella Coffee’s high quality green beans, you can purchase them on MyDiBellaCoffee.com

    The Importance of Cleaning Your Domestic Machine

    At Di Bella Coffee, we understand that there are a number of factors that contribute to creating consistently great coffee, both in store and at home. If you’re a budding aficionado who loves to create delicious coffee using your domestic coffee machine, it’s important to understand the role of cleaning your machine and how it contributes to producing exceptional quality coffee each and every time.

    Your domestic coffee machine is truly a hub of activity. With every coffee that you make, coffee grinds, milk and consumables make their way into your machine. There are a number of ways that blockage and build-up can occur. Firstly, coffee grinds will leave residual oils throughout your machine through the process of extraction. If they are left uncleaned, the oils can obstruct your machine’s showerscreen and restrict the flow of water needed for a successful extraction. Oils will also become rancid over time, which will negatively impact the final taste of your extraction. To combat this problem, simply knock out your pucks straight after extractions and after a few shots, place the empty group handle into the group head and let the water run through. You should also jiggle the handle at this stage to dislodge any stubborn grinds. Milk products and consumables can also clog up the steam wand, not only affecting the taste of your coffee but potentially causing damage to your equipment in the long run. To prevent this from occurring, purge and wipe the steam wand after each use. This will dispel any milk that could be obstructing the wand.

    To clean your domestic coffee machine, Di Bella Coffee recommends the use of Cafetto cleaning products to keep your machine functioning at an optimal level. These products are available at My Di Bella Coffee and are a convenient and thorough solution for cleaning and maintain your equipment. You will need to establish a daily and weekly cleaning routine depending on how frequently you use your domestic machine. For daily cleaning, use a blind filter to loosen any leftover coffee grinds or build-up of oil. To further clean your machine, use backwash chemical (available online) to clean and soak the blind filter and wash cleaning solution through your machine. This will only need to be done every 2-4 weeks depending on how often you use your machine. This will break down any oil build up on the inside of the group head and throughout the shower screen. The resulting dirty water should then be tipped out before the process is repeated without the chemical until the water in the blind filter comes out clean. To clean your group handle, clean with a scourer lightly on a daily basis using warm water only and soak with chemical once a week.

    For more detailed cleaning advice, training and demonstrations, Di Bella Coffee offers educational coffee training courses. Our free ‘Navigate Your Domestic Coffee Machine’ course follows an educate, not dictate approach to coffee education, providing you with the foundations of knowledge while also encouraging you to establish your own unique style and routine. For bookings and to discuss availability of this free course and other educational courses, simply call 07 3252 5858 or visit Home - Di Bella Coffee for more information.

    Let’s Get Technical – Grind

    Are you new to the art of extracting exceptional quality coffee on your domestic coffee machine? Do you find yourself wandering down to your local Di Bella Coffee shop after many failed attempts at creating the perfect espresso coffee? Don’t let your home coffee machine grind your gears any longer! We’re here to help you master each stage of the coffee making process so that you can become a whiz on the domestic machine in no time.

    When you begin your journey to becoming a coffee aficionado, it’s important to understand that extraction is the process of forcing hot water through ground coffee to extract the oils and sugars that make up the crema. Different factors can affect the quality of your extraction, including:

    Grind, Dosage/Volume, Tamping/Pressure, Volume and Temperature of water

    All of these factors will affect your extraction time in different ways, and in turn the taste of your coffee. Changing any of these factors will create different results in your extraction.

    This blog will look at setting and maintaining your grind.

    Perhaps the most important variable in extracting the perfect espresso is setting and maintaining the correct grind. The texture and consistency of the grind is set and maintained by moving the grinding blades closer together to make the grind finer and further apart to make it coarser. There is no ‘schedule’ for setting the grind, and should be adjusted to achieve your desired extraction depending on environmental conditions.


    To adjust the grind, you will first need to check the grinder collar to see which direction you will need to turn the dial for finer or coarser grounds. Next, turn it on so that the blades are moving to grind the beans then adjust the dial in the relevant direction by one full notch at a time. Grind off some coffee and then discard it, as this is the old grind from the previous setting. Finally, grind off some more coffee on the new setting and check the grind, altering the setting until the grind is of a desired consistency.

    It takes trial and error to perfect each stage of the coffee making process and gain consistently great coffee each time you use your domestic machine. If you’d like to learn more about how to create exceptional coffee on your home machine, check out our range of educational courses and keep an eye out for our new three part blog series ‘The Home Barista’ to find out more.

    Di Bella Coffee’s Western Australian Roasting Warehouse Now Open For Business

    Western Australian coffee enthusiasts have flocked to the opening of our new roasting warehouse and distribution centre at the corner of South Terrace and Little Lefroy Lane in Fremantle, WA.

    The Western Australian roasting warehouse is a sensory experience, allowing customers to sample the premium range of signature blends and single origin coffees or take a seat and enjoy the aroma of roasting beans in the retail showroom.

    The new roasting warehouse is open from 7:00am until 5:00pm Monday through Friday and 7:30am until 5:00pm on weekends and serves a full breakfast and lunch menu, in addition to our famous specialty coffee.

    Di Bella Coffee is passionate about coffee education, and our roasting warehouses provide customers with the opportunity to refine their knowledge through tours and training courses for home baristas and professionals alike.

    The roasting warehouse is not just a roasting facility, but an experience designed to excite, evoke passion and educate consumers as they establish their own personal coffee journey.

    Our distribution centre gives local cafés a direct point of contact with our wholesale team in WA as well as ensuring that they receive their deliveries from a Di Bella Coffee representative rather than through third party logistics providers.

    The WA warehouse and distribution centre is now the fourth of its kind and operates on a similar basis to Di Bella Coffee’s Melbourne and Sydney locations.

    By roasting our beans locally at the roasting warehouse, our WA retail customers will have constant access to our premium quality, freshly roasted coffee beans.

    So, if you live in WA or next time you are visiting, why not pop in for a delicious specialty coffee, a bite to eat and a tour of our new roasting facilities? Or if you are a café owner and want to serve Di Bella Coffee and get access to our Crop to Cup system on the West Coast, pop in or give us a call!

    For more information visit the WA roasting warehouse on Facebook at www.facebook.com/DiBellaCoffeePerth or call us on (08) 9336 5475.

    When Phillip and Gianna Di Bella were sitting on their balcony 12 years ago creating the vision that was to later become Di Bella Coffee, they made themselves one promise – to always give back to the community that supports them. They agreed that as Di Bella Coffee grew so would their support of different charity initiatives. As each business year passed, they paid gratitude by supporting children in third world countries through the Christian Children’s Foundation. Twelve years on, this support continues today, and Di Bella Coffee are fortunate enough to now be in a position to also support different areas of our community closer to home.

    We support small, one-off donations, sponsorships and events that fit within our goals and objectives, seeking to inspire a culture of giving in our industry and all the businesses we connect with.

    Over the years we have been working in partnership with different community projects and social enterprises that are as passionate about supporting the next generation as we are. We actively seek out a range of different initiatives to ensure our sponsorships and donations reach as many sections of the greater community as possible. Guided by the principle ’there is only the future’, our latest support and heartfelt thanks goes out:

    Peppertree Café in Bankstown that deliver barista and hospitality training to local disadvantaged youth.
    Pay A Sack Forward an initiative that raises funds in cafés to provide vital supplies to the homeless in local communities.
    Kinfolk Café and BAM Espresso – leaders in social enterprise endeavours.
    The Pyjama Foundation who helps disadvantaged children living in foster care in our local community
    The Hope Foundation who works alongside women wanting to change your life away from addictions and/or the sex industry.

    Partnering with these charities and witnessing the great work that they do and the impact they have in changing the lives of those they touch is both humbling and rewarding. Last year, Phillip and Gianna got to experience the gift of giving first hand when Di Bella Coffee commenced an annual recreational Christmas camp for the foster children, carers and volunteers of the Pyjama Foundation. This camp gave those children in foster care an event to really look forward to and enjoy at Christmastime. The letters we received after the event from the foster carers and the children (some of which are included below) made the whole experience even more rewarding and uplifting.

    There is an old Italian proverb that says “give while you live”. Thanks to the support of our customers we can say thankyou the best way we know how – by giving back to our communities.

    Higher Coffee Prices Equals Cheating on Quality
    World coffee prices are now on the rise due to lower than expected output in production and exports, with the trend continuing into September shown in increasing prices for both arabicas and robustas on the New York and London Stock Exchanges.
    To put this into perspective, Brazil, for example, is one of the world’s largest coffee bean producing regions, predominately of robustas. It typically produces about 55 million bags of coffee annually, but recent data suggests the projected amount will be around 30 million by the end of 2014. Coffee production is just one of the contributing factors to raising coffee prices.

    As the coffee prices increase, we are also seeing this have an effect on the quality of coffee in the cup. Recent media reports have stated that many producers and roasters are adding ‘fillers’ to your pre-ground coffee to maximise profits. They warn consumers that as coffee prices continue to rise, so too will the surprise ingredients hidden in your coffee.

    FoxNews reported last month that you might be drinking wheat, corn, soybeans, rye, ground acai seeds and even brown sugar in your morning brew. These fillers are not harmful but will certainly affect the taste and quality of your coffee.
    Now more than ever, buying freshly roasted coffee that is ground on demand is crucial as opposed to buying brick packs’that arrive in Australia from various roasters around the globe (such as Italy, Germany, USA etc).
    Di Bella Coffee’s long term relationships with farmers at origin are crucial in fulfilling our promise of suppling quality products to our customers. Through the Crop to Cup programme, our green bean purchasing business, we buy 100% of our raw coffees from reputable farmers who have been dealing with us for over a decade.

    These farmers have and continue to enjoy the pricing collaboration and economic security of dealing with us long-term, independent of the pricing fluctuations in the market.
    In other words, our suppliers deal with high quality coffees, for which they are well paid for, and as such it provides them no benefit to contaminate the lots with foreign agents.
    My Crop to Cup also has independent parties, such as Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS), test batches of green beans to verify the integrity of the loads before leaving origin to come to Australia.
    Once the raw coffee has arrived, it undergoes additional inspections by our production team before being stored into silos at our roasting facility. Cupping and roasted quality checks are also undertaken with every batch to ensure that all our coffees meet the parameters established by our production team.

    Our buying practices and quality assurance procedures, from origin through to roasting, ensure that our customers are drinking nothing but fresh, roasted quality coffee in their favourite blend.
