Mexico El Tucan Espresso Decaf

Padre Coffee (Melbourne)
SGD 28.00

Decaffeinated using the Mountain Water Process, the Mexico El Tucan is exquisitely sweet and balanced with intense chocolate and caramel flavours. It has a full creamy body, brown sugar sweetness and soft orange acidity.

The Mexico El Tucan is decaffeinated using the Mountain Water Process which involves sourcing the natural mountain water from Pico De Orizaba (one of the largest mountains in Mexico). The coffee is soaked and washed in clean water numerous times and then water is passed through a caffeine filter before being reintroduced to the coffee. This natural process leaves a sweet and full flavoured coffee which is exactly how we prefer our decaf.

In the state of Chiapas, you’ll find Mexico’s largest and oldest coffee producing regions - some farms can look back on a history record of more than a hundred years. The region is surrounded by the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and divided into various microclimates thanks to the lush mountain slopes of the Sierra Madre Chiapas.

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.

We now 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 Queensland.

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.

The Padre family has grown to include two roasteries, two stand-alone cafes and a handful of wonderful wholesale clients. While the coffee is, thankfully, the same, each of our cafes is individual; born of and tailored to the community that it supports. In every case we aim to meet the needs of local people, giving them coffee worth getting out of bed for as well as everything that they need in order to brew the perfect cup at home.

Opened in early 2016, our Noosa roastery has become a mecca for the Sunshine Coast's coffee community; a roastery, cafe, retail store, training lab and wholesale HQ all-in-one where we roast, brew and drink Padre Coffee all under the same roof. A bright, sunny and open space brings all the elements together.

Padre Coffee Brunswick East at 438-440 Lygon Street was our first cafe and is still going strong after all these years. Home to our Melbourne roastery, it is down-to-earth and friendly, the perfect place to fine-tune your aeropress technique or settle in with the weekend paper.

Padre Coffee South Melbourneopen since December 2009, is perfectly at home among the South’s finest butchers, bakers and candlestick makers. Providing soothing lattes, friendly advice and beans by the bag to the bustling market masses, a quick stop at our South Melbourne stall is a must for Melbourne’s most discerning shoppers.
