bouncing the bean
Louis Baxters is known for its high quality coffee; one that is rich, bold and flavoursome. Louis Baxter's partnership with Campos Coffee has been a strong one ever since 2011. Under Jay's leadership and his quest for high quality beans sourced locally, Louis Baxters has undergone a shift to a new coffee supplier, Margaret River Roasting Company.
MRRC is a local Western Australian roastery, located down south in the Margaret River Wine Region and is founded and operated by three guys - Craig, James and Isaac. The boys had a dream to provide the Australian and International market with a local roastery that captures the lifestyle of the wild southern corridor famed for its surfing spots, forests, wineries, farms and food. MRRC maintains a close relationship to the farmer of the beans ensuring the trade relationship is ethical and responsible, and they care a great deal about the quality of the coffee - from how it is washed and treated, to securely packaged and gently roasted ensuring optimum flavour, sweetness, acidity and balance. Their passion for coffee was realised a few years ago and many other cafes have shined the light on their craft, however, as we are doing our best to use local West Australian suppliers, their love and care is what we too are about, and so we're delighted to announce that we will be their flagship store for the Perth region, and we will continue to respect the culture of Louis Baxter's and match its determination to only use the freshest, most flavoursome and consistent bean available for our coffee - for you.
Their House Blend is a gorgeous blend of flavour from Colombia, Ethiopia and Brazil. It pairs wonderfully with milk, but can stand on its own legs in a long black or espresso. It takes you on a journey, with a sweet floral aroma, on first taste its a dark stormy chocolatey feel, hints of toffee, edgy. The next moment is the fruity mouthfeel of blackberry, plum, butter and cream. It's so delicious, warm and has such a delicate balance of acidity. It's spritely and refreshing. We love it as a Long Black, or Espresso - but pair it with milk and you still get the diversity of flavours.
