unclejoescoffee Emperor Tewodros II, who ruled Ethiopia from 1855 โ€“ 1868, was quite famous for taming a number of lions and he was always surrounded by them at his fortress in Makdela. History recalls that the Emperor wanted to embody the qualities and characteristics of the lion. Many would agree that he, as a single-minded leader of a proud nation, was lion-like: he was brave and courageous, protective of his territory, willing to fight if necessary and had a charisma that no one dared to compete with.

Our Black Lion coffee is destined for greatness. It is sourced from a collection of small holder lots in the Gedeo Zone. This particular lot is hand picked and hand sorted, specifically, it's a natural processed coffee; clean, explosively delicious and consistent. A signature purple note that is so pleasing, so rewarding and extremely satisfying.

Our Black Lion coffee is the best of the best of what the farmers hand pick and can also be translated as "the Lion Emperor". If you want to experience the hallmark Uncle Joe's Natural Yirgacheffe, this is the coffee for you.

Ethiopia Yirgacheffe - Gedeo

unclejoescoffee Tonight we cup for tomorrow we remember them.

ANZAC Day: Gallipoli tends to seem strange to outsiders, as it appears to be a celebration of Australia's greatest defeat, but in essence it is rather a commemoration of those who died serving Australia in battle, be it warranted or not. We remind ourselves of the anguish of war, build bridges with past enemies, and praise the character of soldiers who did it tough, but showed great character in the face of adversity.

unclejoescoffee We often get asked what's the secret behind our Goldenbean winning roasts?
.
.

It's easy, you just have to start with the right coffee! Oh, and beware of the defects

@1275_coffee knows the secret, he sorts out all his defects

Introducing the 5 star INFUSION
Pro, dual spring, calibrated tamper with ripple base designed in collaboration with Eazytamp
We're super excited and extremely honored to be working with master craftsman, Elie Nootenboom. It is with his platform, the 5 Star Pro, that we realised this is the future of manual tamping. It offers true level tamping with correct tamping pressure. The 5 star INFUSION Pro takes this combination and adds a 5 ring ripple base designed to increase the surface area of the tamped grounds. Combine this with a custom Australian hardwood handle for the ultimate manual tamping experience.
True level, Consistent Pressure, Full Coverage with Increased Surface Area
True Level: true self leveling flange which guides the tamper base as you apply force, keeping it dead level throughout the entire tamp. Moves independently to the base.
Tamp pressure: tamper base is pressure sensitive. Comes with both a 10kg and 15kg spring, so you have both options. Every tamp reaches target pressure!
Coverage: 58.4mm ripple base for maximum coverage and surface area
Lifetime warranty, Australian Made.
