A Better Cup of Coffee…Hunter Bay’s version of a classic Mocha Java, Bernice’s Blend, is rich in flavors of wild berries and spice, with an earthiness that lends robust body and structure. Bernice’s Blend is made from naturally processed, 100% organic coffees from coffee cooperatives in the East Indies and Africa. In this complex blend, the robust body and smooth finish of the East Indies coffees work to balance the assertive fruity flavors in the East African coffees, presenting the best qualities of each in a stout brew of moderate acidity, with full flavors and ripe berry highlights.
Roasting NotesMedium Roast: Bernice’s Blend is slow roasted to a rich, dark chocolate brown Viennese Roast, to accentuate the coffee’s caramel-chocolate flavors, and to add a touch of Dark Roast toastiness and pleasant burnt-sugar sweetness to this well balanced, full bodied brew.
Bernice's EspressoBernice's signature Espresso blend was developed from the success of our coffee blend. Beginning with a classic mocha java blend of Indonesian and African coffees, we added Brazillian coffee to accentuate the sweetness and maximize the crema in each espresso shot. The result is a wonderfully rich, complex, full-bodied blend of brown sugar, spice and wild berry floral accents that pair beautifully with our buttery breakfast pasteries.
Brewed Strong, Smart, and Fresh for our Customers’ Pleasure
- Hunter Bay Coffee Roasters roasts our coffee locally, in small batches, delivering it to us three times a week. Bernice’s Blend was jointly developed, specifically to compliment our gourmet pastries and cakes.
- We use filtered water and twice the average amount of grounds to make every pot. No corners are cut, so you get the finest possible cup of coffee, every time.
- Our coffee is brewed using a state of the art brewer, called an Extractor. The extractor saturates the grounds with hot water, then pauses for just over a minute to allow the grounds to expand. The extractor then completes the brewing process by pushing hot water through the grounds, efficiently extracting the maximum flavor with minimal bitterness.
- The coffee goes straight from the extractor into 3 liter airpots, and is promptly served.
