"Iconic" as applied to the Bialetti means highly original, influential, unique. Oh and yes, classic.
Not to mention instantly recognizable.
But! does it make great coffee??
No surprise, the Bialetti makes delicious, authentic Italian espresso. Of course it does.
If you feel at all intimidated by the Bialetti, read on.
You'll be surprised at how easy it is to make stove-top espresso!
For amazing results, try Cupper's BAD COFFEE or San Francisco Espresso.
Last but not least, make sure your coffee is ground right (should be slightly finer than drip grind.)
(Start at the bottom. At #1. Just sayin'.)
(You can congratulate yourself afterwords while enjoying your espresso. You are a coffee god, for you have conquered the Bialetti. Sip like an auteur, or shoot it back like a boss.)
CAFE FEMENINO: The Original Fair-Trade Relationship Coffees, available in Lethbridge, Roasted by Cupper's Coffee.
Cafe Femenino is a non-profit organization that encourages and supports the women of coffee-growing communities all over the world to become plantation owners, managers and workers.
Cafe Femenino understands that when the women of any community thrive, so does the community in general: the families, relationships, and services.
The Cafe Femenino Organization has developed a coffee growing/exporting model that is ground-breaking in its ability to support the growers.
When the women are supported in growing the crops and making financial decisions, the benefits extend into the future through new generations.
Educational priorities differ in different parts of the world.
For example, young girls in Peru are taught to read, whereas in Rwanda, women want to learn conflict resolution.
The inherent dignity of paid work and ownership empowers the whole community.
At Cupper's, we are very proud to have an on-going relationship with Cafe Femenino and the values it embodies.
We have supported Femenino coffees since 2006!
We send the Cafe Femenino organization a percentage of every Femenino pound we sell.
The money goes directly back to the women and the community that produced the coffee, to be spent on developing community services under the supervision of Femenino representatives.
Cafe Femenino coffees are the very definition of relationship coffees. Help us support them!
Our Nitro Cold Brew Coffee is a velvety and delicious addition to our cold coffee line-up.
Nitro is Cupper's cold-brew coffee - steeped 12 hours - and infused with nitro bubbles.
If you haven't tried it yet, come in and treat yourself!
When we first built our nitro brewer, the whole process was a bit like watching mad scientists at work.
Except for THESE scientists were producing cold, creamy, luxurious Nitro Brew Coffee.
As the cold brew coffee is infused with the nitrogen gas, it changes the texture of the coffee.
The billions of tiny bubbles give it a luxuriously creamy, smooth texture.
Shining a light on the cup of nitro brew shows off the creamy texture.
Cold Brew coffee brings depth to coffee flavours.
Our coffee is meticulously roasted to bring out the natural flavours of the bean, and the cold-brew-nitro process makes those tasting notes even more intense.
PLUS: Nitro Cold Brew coffee is slightly sweet.
If you normally take your coffee with cream or sugar, try our Nitro Cold Brew black, first.
You may be surprised at the natural sweetness in the coffee :)
The Nitro has developed a real following.
We have customers waiting all year for it to show up on our menu in the summer.
Here's to enjoying your summer of Nitro Cold Brew Coffee!
The Aeropress was invented by an engineer, because coffee geeks can be found in every profession.
The Aeropress brewing method is fast and forgiving - you can't go wrong.
It's so easy to brew an amazing cup of coffee.
So many benefits! It's small and very light, which makes it great for traveling and camping.
Not to mention, versatile.
It's up to you how strong you brew your coffee.
You can make your coffee the same strength as a typical drip brew, or you can make it as intense and flavourful as an espresso.
So many attachments, so little time!
The Prismo is a must-have for the Aeropress aficionado.
Come into Cupper's and we'll show you everything you need to know!
If you can't make it into Cupper's for a live, in-person Aeropress demo, check out the details in the video below.
RED ESPRESSO is a great caffeine-free alternative to espresso, because it's made from rooibos tea.
And not just any rooibos: we buy the organic, high-grown, specially ground rooibos tea that we prepare just like coffee.
In fact, Red Espresso produced in our La Marzocco has a beautiful golden crema (just like espresso does) because of the natural-occurring oils in the tea.
WHAT IT TASTES LIKE
Our high-grown rooibos is a bolder, sweeter, richer-tasting rooibos than you've ever had before.
It delivers a strong, full-bodied TEA flavour. It doesn't taste like coffee.
If you're wanting a freshly roasted coffee flavour, best stick to traditional espresso.
If you're a tea drinker and want to try something different and crazy-healthy, Red Espresso will do it for you!
Red Rooibos is loaded with antioxidants.
10 times more than regular brewed rooibos tea, and 50 times more than brewed green tea.
Every Christmas season, we work harder (let's face it though, it's a mission of love) to source the world's best coffees for you.
We love our Kona Extra Fancy, our Panama La Esmeralda Geisha, and our Jamaica Blue Mountain. We've confirmed all three!
We have a special email list, just for people who want to know when the roast dates are, what the prices are, and how to reserve a few pounds for themselves.
