Living in the coffee capital of the world, we've worked in the specialty coffee industry for over 10 years, as well as entered numerous specialty coffee competitions. During our time on the specialty coffee circuit we've tasted a lot of coffee, and realised the truest and most untainted way to taste coffee is by maintaining freshness and keeping the brew method simple.
… if only in its beautiful simplicity. By keeping Beyond simple, we’ve been able to improve upon the dated instant coffee experience and introduce people to an all-new evolution of home-brewing that enables them to focus on the coffee. We like to keep the coffee fresh, convenient, sustainable, and most of all tasting excellent. Beyond is as simple and brewing a tea and as tasty as a batch brew!
Let’s face it, instant coffee is convenient. All you need to do is add water, because the coffee has already been roasted, ground and brewed and then dehydrated to last a long time (by drying processes such as spraying or freezing). Similarly, all you need to do is add water to make a Beyond coffee. The key difference is that you are adding water when it matters the most – during the brewing process, not after, which means you have control over the extraction process.
Beyond is an easy way to brew exceptional filter coffee. With Beyond, you don’t have to compromise taste for convenience. Each freshly roasted batch is single-origin, specialty graded filter coffee that we have carefully tasted and measured to ensure that each brew bag will give the perfect cup of full-bodied coffee. Yes, we are coffee snobs (from Melbourne, what did you expect?) and yes, we are more than happy to do the ‘cupping’ for you. Follow our Instagram to learn more about the feel, flavour and aroma of our brewed coffee.
Our brew bags are made of 100% plant-based material, including the string and tag. This means that you can compost your used coffee grounds and brew bag. The material doubly acts as an effective filter that allow the water to freely saturate the coffee grounds during the brewing process for maximum flavour. We also use a 100% carbon neutral delivery service, where possible.
Beyond coffee was borne out of a need for good coffee + simplicity. No grinders, kitchen scales, filter paper, or expensive equipment (that you need to clean afterwards). That’s not to say that we don’t still enjoy making filter coffee at home with our Aeropress or Moccamaster when we have the luxury of time on our hands. However, with Beyond, less time spent supervising the coffee making process means more time for you, more time for work, more time for leisure (and in our case, more time to attend to rugrats).
Brew anywhere, we say. Beyond coffee is the best travel companion because all you need is a cup and hot water (hello, thermos!). We have brewed Beyond coffee bags on hiking trips in the mountains, at campsites, at picnics, on aeroplanes, in Airbnbs, and even commuting to work on the train or by car. We love that you can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life on impromptu roadtrips but you don’t have to leave behind a cup of great coffee (or go mad hunting for a café that is open nearby).
Coffee is a fresh product and should be consumed fresh. Regular deliveries mean that freshness is maintained – we only send you the most recently roasted coffee according to your preferred delivery frequency (fortnightly or monthly). With the flexibility of a Beyond subscription, you are able to adjust the amount of coffee you receive, or even pause the subscription if you do not require a delivery for a short period of time.
What better way to show your appreciation for family, friends or colleagues than with a gift of great coffee? Or a housewarming gift to welcome a new home? Stuck for a gift for that person who has everything, including subscriptions for socks and jocks? Even the coffee aficionado who might be ‘skeptical’ that specialty coffee can be brewed from a simple brew bag has loved that Beyond is an easy, convenient and delicious filter coffee that can be brewed anywhere, anytime.
