There are no fillers or extra packaging in the box, just good coffee (and a card or two).

They also provide a link to brew guides, how-to videos, weekly giveaways, and free coffee.
At the back of the card is a feature about JavaPresse’s famed manual coffee grinder. It is their award-winning ceramic burr grinder that grinds everything from French Press to Espresso while eliminating 90% of the noise that electric grinders produce.
Java Presse Coffee Ethiopia Single Origin – Every bag of Jave Presse coffee tells a story. This bag of mixed varietal beans comes from the Sidama region of Southern Ethiopia. The network of coffee plantations that produce this coffee arose as first step toward revitalizing a conquered region.
The info card shares some history behind the coffee and and the region that produced it. Along the top are some vital stats about the coffee itself, its growing conditions, and its processing.
The bag contains 12 oz. of freshly roasted coffee beans.
According to JavaPresse, the coffee begins to lose 40% of its aroma and flavors within 15 minutes of grinding. That’s why they don’t send pre-ground coffees.
JavaPresse sources their beans from all over the world, but they’ve entrusted their roasting to a single domestic roaster to ensure quality and freshness. You can read a bit about their dedication on the back of the pouch.
For every bag of coffee, JavaPresse funds children with life-threatening illnesses through the Make-A-Wish foundation.
Check out all these lovely coffee beans we got!
Here’s a closer look at the beans! I can see the different color, texture, and membrane integrity of the three varietals this blend comprises. Some of the beans have a lot of character, as you would expect from unique heirloom varietals.
These are medium-roasted beans. They look great, and they smell great too!
There’s a hint of sweetness, plus notes of pink grapefruit and peach. There is a fair bit of acidity in these beans, but it comes through as a pleasant citrus note, and it creates a smooth, custard-like mouth feel.
The aroma offers hints of jasmine and the finish has a bit of spice. The most striking feature of this coffee is the pale, tawny hue, ranging from a greenish gold at the meniscus to a deep chestnut in the depths of the cup.
This month’s JavaPresse featured coffee is quite interesting, both in taste and history. It was made and produced by coffee farmers who have escaped a dark past and are now moving forward by creating their own identity. Visually, the coffee metaphor for this historical backdrop, with a vivid, lively hue that seems to emanate from the dark core of the mug. The coffee itself is tasty, with a plethora of lovely notes and intricate nuances carried by an engaging mouth feel, but incorporating the story behind the creation of these beans makes it truly extraordinary. Also, supporting a subscription that helps kids with life-threatening illness feels really great too. I’m looking forward to more interesting and tasty coffee on my next box!
