Cof­fee ex­perts

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Front Page -

Ian and April Pianta from South­ern Roast­ing in Man­jimup have al­ways been con­scious about pro­vid­ing qual­ity cof­fee through their own spe­cialty blends.

“Fresh cof­fee is avail­able here to take home and we can grind your cof­fee here, which not many peo­ple know. How­ever you brew your cof­fee we’ve got stuff for you,” Mrs Pianta said.

The type of cof­fee they use changes based on what is in sea­son.

“We use the full cof­fee belt which is typ­i­cally grown at al­ti­tude on the equa­tor, so bit of African, South-East Asian and a lot of Cen­tral Amer­i­can cof­fee too,” Mr Pianta said.

They have used Aus­tralian cof­fee in lim­ited re­leases, of­ten this can cost about $60 a kilo­gram. South­ern Roast­ing also runs a three-hour barista course once a month which i lim­ited to seven spots on each course. Peo­ple can book to the course through the Pem­ber­ton CRC.
