Danes Coffee

The best specialty coffee in Australia

We’re proud to make Australia’s best specialty coffee as awarded by the Australian International Coffee Awards (AICA). In 2018 and 2019, we were crowned the Champion Australian Roaster at AICA.

At 2020 AICA we won another 20 medals, making us Australia’s most awarded coffee roaster. Our coffees won medals in all brewing categories.

So however you brew, we’ve got the coffee for you. At home or in your office we’ve got you covered.

We craft coffee that defines flavour

Because that’s what coffee is about – full-bodied flavour that keeps you coming back for more.

Defining coffee flavour is simple when you use our three flavour tribes – Chocolates & Caramels, Nuts & Spices, Fruits & Berries. Every bag of our beans comes with its flavour tribes clearly defined, so you can easily see how it will taste in your cup.

Danes three flavour pentagon tribes a way to express flavour in coffee

The five elements of coffee flavour

The Danes flavour pentagon gives you a way to measure the five key elements of coffee flavour:

Aroma – a fragrant scent. Aroma introduces us to flavour before we taste it and makes up a large proportion of flavour.

Sweetness – the level of pleasant acidity and brightness.

Body – thickness and weightiness on your tongue.

Flavour – the infusion of aroma, sweetness and body as they all converge.

Finish – the end and aftertaste of the experience that sits on your palate.

You’ll see that each of our coffees has its own flavour pentagon. It shows you how each element of flavour presents in that roast, helping you choose the beans you like best
