Coffee beans, Filter or Fresh brew

When we create blends, we always mention if they are available as beans, filtered coffee or fresh brew coffee. A brief explanation about these approaches to coffee preparation can be found below.

Coffee beans

Coffee beans allow you to prepare the very freshest coffee. You can use the beans in automatic machines or can grind them yourself. In this case, it is best to use a filter holder, a filtering device, a cafetière and a coffee pot. Our range features various top quality blends. And this allows you to create different versions: from espresso to café crème and cappuccino.

Besides delicious blends, we also offer a range of Single Origins under the name: Peeze Specialities.

Filter coffee

Filter coffee is making a comeback. This traditional approach to making coffee results in a fantastic product. If you use a good machine and good quality filter coffee, you will be able to easily prepare great coffee with exquisite aromas.

Fresh brew coffee

Fresh brew is a modern variation of filter coffee and is prepared in approximately the same way as its traditional alternative. However, fresh brew involves preparing the coffee under pressure, which makes it quicker to prepare. The coffee has been ground to a finer consistency to make sure aromas are not lost due to the short preparation time. Due to its speed and convenience, fresh brew coffee is an ideal solution for the workplace.

From cherry to bean

A good cup of coffee is always prepared with passion and respect. And this starts at the very source, when beans are extracted from cherries. The foundations for great coffee tastes are laid by paying attention to this essential phase in the cultivation process. All Peeze coffee undergoes the following 8 steps during the process:

The plantations

Coffee quality is already determined at an early stage, partly due to the origin of beans. We primarily acquire our coffee in South America, Central America, East Africa and Indonesia, from coffee plantations located high in the mountains. Coffee plants that grow here provide Arabica beans, which generally tend to be of higher quality than Robusta beans. Because we have adopted very high standards, our coffee beans originate from plants that grow at heights of 1,500 to 1,800 metres and offer the very best coffee.

Step 1 – Manual picking

Due to the extreme heights, machines are unable to reach the plants. That is why cherries are picked by hand. Peeze coffee is made by only using cherries that are fully ripe and dark red in colour. These cherries help to offer the best quality.

Step 2 – Pulping

There are two ways to process cherries: a wet method and a dry method. Our coffee is made using the wet method: pulping. This involves machines squashing coffee cherries in order to release coffee beans. Each cherry features two coffee beans, which are surrounded by a parchment (pergamino).

Step 3 – Fermentation

The pulped coffee beans are then poured into large water tanks so they can ferment. During the fermentation process, natural enzymes help to remove any remaining pulp residues from the parchment. The coffee beans develop their aroma during this process, so it is very important to perform it with great care!

Step 4 – Washing

The coffee beans are washed once again after the fermentation process.

Step 5 – Drying

The washed coffee beans are then dried on concrete floors and drying tables. When doing so, it is important for beans to be turned regularly so all beans dry equally and rotting is avoided.

Step 6 – Parchment removal

The parchment is removed from coffee beans immediately before the date of export. This is done using special peeling machines.

Step 7 – Sorting

The individual coffee beans are mechanically or manually sorted based on size and colour. This helps to effectively eliminate any sub-standard coffee beans.

Step 8 – Export

Coffee beans are then packed in bags and prepared for export to Europe. However, this will only happen if they meet Peeze's strict quality requirements.
