Now summer is here, don’t forget to grab your
Allpress coffee on the way…
With summer comes an increase in humidity, which may find
some baristas seeing a bit more inconsistency in their coffee
extraction over the course of the day. When the humidity
increases, ground coffee tends to absorb more moisture and
packs down tighter increasing the coffee’s resistance to water
passing through it. The shots extraction will be slower, (longer
than 25 seconds) and it will change appearance from brown to
white in colour with a thin, watery texture. The taste is an over
extracted shot that is bitter.

REMEMBER: Store your beans correctly.

odorous products, heat and moisture. Incorrect storage causes
the delicate oils to rapidly deteriorate, eroding the flavour.

friends to a special brew. Available from select cafés stocking Allpress retail coffee or from the

La Marzocco at the Allpress Roastery
We were thrilled to have Guido Bernardinelli (above),
Managing Director of La Marzocco Italy as our
guest here at Allpress last September.
As the sole distributor of La Marzocco espresso equipment in
Australia, we hosted a roasters industry night at the roastery.
Roasters came from all over Australia for the event to listen to
Guido speaking on the history and innovation of La Marzocco, as
well as introducing new machinery developments and products.
For further information on La Marzocco developments please
contact Greg, Kristy and Mat in NSW, Ben and Anita in Victoria,
or visit the La Marzocco website. www.lamarozcco.com.au
La Marzocco Collaborator of the Year 2009
We were delighted to have La Marzocco announce Tony as the
“La Marzocco Collaborator of the Year 2009”. La Marzocco
distribute their machinery to over 67 countries worldwide and
Allpress are the sole distributor here in Australia. Criteria for the
title included overall interaction with all departments at the
factory, performance in sales, dedication to technical service and
the promotion of the La Marzocco brand in a specific territory.
Christmas Giving
For the last two years, Allpress have made a financial
contribution to an environmental development project in
Ethiopia which is run through the agency Tear Fund. Now
successfully completed, this project assisted in the
development of education programs which built local knowledge
on environmental and conservational practices. Tear Fund
engaged in a number of schemes within these programmes,
the most significant being the planting of trees. It has been very
satisfying to see the project complete, knowing that Allpress
was able to assist in bringing long lasting benefits to the birth
place of coffee.
This year we will be contributing to a more local cause
supporting two food rescue charities, Oz Harvest in NSW and
Second Bite in Victoria. Both these organisations are committed
to making a positive difference in our communities and
environment by collecting and providing excess food to those
living in disadvantaged circumstances.

Taking your Coffee home
2009 has certainly been an inspiring year for Allpress with some fantastic new customers coming
on board and, reassuringly, the return of some former Allpress customers as well. As a result Allpress
Coffee has moved even further afield ensuring exceptional espresso is more readily available outside
of major metropolitan areas.
Coffee at home seems to be getting more and
more complicated, especially when we are all
supposed experts. It really shouldn’t be so hard
and the simple rule of making the best coffee
at home comes straight back to the basics
- the bean quality, the freshness and the grinding.
More and more we are serving discerning coffee savvy
customers that are hungry for knowledge about the origins of
the product. They also enquire about our roasting processes
and the sustainable trading standards used to source our
beans. As a specialty roaster, these are exciting times for us.
Well educated customers demand a level of quality that we

Winning the award would never have happened without the
brilliant input of our teams and an outstanding effort from
Ali Sedcole (NZ General Manager). It would also have not been
possible without the success of Allpress Espresso Australia over
the past 10 years.
While I am re-locating to London to start up and run the planned
roastery and café operation, Dean Liggins will head up Allpress
Australia as our new General Manager. He comes with a great
deal of experience in the coffee industry having worked as
General Manager of Allpress New Zealand. We are delighted
he has taken the position of General Manager as he has really
been an integral part of Allpress for many years.
I feel very confident that the depth of talent and knowledge
within the team here at Allpress will greatly assist Dean as he
takes on this new role. He will be starting with Allpress Australia
in January.

feels highly energised. It has effortless style with great design,

Filter coffee conjures up visions of lukewarm, over boiled and

the characteristics of the coffee you are drinking.
Plunger (or French Press) is also very much an underrated coffee

defined but can create a deliciously rich brew.

Many of the Allpress cafés are now stocking our coffee in
prepacked 250gram retail bags for coffee at home. They come
as whole beans or pre-ground for filter or plunger and we can
deliver these on a weekly basis so they are always fresh to the

outlets or supermarkets that might enable them to sit on a shelf
losing their freshness.
