How do Cheeky Devil Coffee supplies differ from supermarket offerings in Hobart or Brisbane?
Whether you live down south in Hobart or further north in Brisbane, it’s important to think about who supplies the beans when you buy your coffee. Commodity coffee is owned and controlled by big business. Profitability is the driving force. This results in exploitation of coffee producing nations, primarily third world countries. Cheeky Devil Roasters strives to source the best crops from small farms and local cooperatives. Our import partners have direct relationships with most of these farmers. This helps to ensure fair trade from the producer to the consumer.
Commodity coffee is roasted in very large batches, generally using inferior green beans and roasting them in a way that hides the characteristics of the raw product, making the roast the star, as opposed to highlighting the individual qualities of a hand selected specialty coffee. Our roast batches are small, and each coffee variety is treated uniquely. We endeavour to retain and accentuate the flavours of that particular crop, giving you a more exciting, varied coffee experience.
Roasted coffee is a delicate, fresh product, highly susceptible to oxidation. It does not have an unlimited shelf life. Despite vacuum packing, the coffee generally found on supermarket shelves is stale, and the oils within are rancid. Can you find a roast date on ANY brand of commodity coffee? Cheeky Devil is proud to display a roasted date, we do not hide behind a best by date like the coffee you can buy from generic suppliers, such as your local supermarket in Hobart or Brisbane.
