Ecuador Pablo Ponce

Padre Coffee (Melbourne)
SGD 27.00

Peach, honey, vanilla, a hint coffee blossom and brown sugar. Juicy orange acidity and dark chocolate in the finish.

A debut origin for us here at Padre, we're super excited to be introducing the exceptional Ecuador Pablo Ponce to our single origin menu.

Nestled between two coffee giants - Colombia and Peru - Ecuador is a small country with plenty of coffee potential; fantastic elevation, good varieties, and lush farmland. However, the relatively limited scope of specialty grade coffee growing, has kept the country flying a little below the radar.

Pablo Ponce owns the 5-hectare farm Perla Chiquita, where 1 hectare is planted with about 2,300 Bourbon trees. Coffees at Perla Chiquita are picked ripe and dry fermented for 12-14 hours before being moved to raised beds. Drying can take between 10-14 days, depending on the climate conditions.

Padre Coffee (Melbourne)
Padre Coffee (Melbourne) was born in Brunswick East back in late 2007/early 2008. We started small, roasting, brewing and selling all of our coffee under the one roof in the heart of the community; making friends, having fun and learning as we went. Our Victorian HQ and roastery is still here in Brunswick East, and a lot of our first customers are as well – in fact, we’re proud to say that it’s thanks to the support of loyal, coffee-loving locals that we’ve grown up to be the company we are today.

As of 2017, we have two beautiful stores selling coffee beans and brews in Melbourne as well as a stunning roastery-cafe now open in Noosa. After years refining the process while roasting for ourselves, the Padre family has also grown to include a handful of special cafes & venues in Victoria and on the Sunshine Coast.

At the same time, not much has changed.
Padre is still a small, owner-run business that prides itself on exceptional products and outstanding service. We love making coffee.

We can be very particular (some would say obsessive) about the way it is produced, prepared and presented.

Our dedicated roasting team put all of their time and energy into the curation of a diverse, accessible and ever-changing range of premium single origin and blended coffee beans, which we’re proud to source from traders and farmers all around the world that know the value of quality and believe - as we do - in ethical and sustainable production.

We roast our coffee in small, loving batches; juggling time, temperature and air-flow to create a fulfilling flavour profile for each bean. It's a pleasure to taste and test our coffee exhaustively, and to brew with the very best equipment. At Padre we drink coffee every way we know how, and are devoted to the education and information that will help our customers to get the best out of every cup.

We make a point of hiring dedicated, switched-on individuals and on training them from the ground up, which helps to ensure that the Padre team (and, as follows, the product) is strong and consistent across everything we do. Enthusiastic, unpretentious coffee lovers are the foundation of our company. We believe in quality produce, sustainability, and in having strong relationships with the people we work with, which is why we take the time to make sure that even the tea, milk and chocolate that we use are premium local products made by thoughtful and engaged individuals.

We’re proud to supply our coffee to friends and like-minded people, people it’s a joy to work with. Of course, it’s more than just coffee we provide – years in the industry have taught us that it’s the tools, training, guidance and support we offer that make sure the Padre bean lives up to its name, wherever you might find it.
