An unequivocal classic, this blend of South and Central American varietals exudes distinct notes of caramel and cocoa, while maintaining a balance of acidity and body. The end result is a smooth and satisfying brew.

*This coffee is bird friendly

Balzac's has partnered with Canadian author and bird lover Margaret Atwood in creating a Smithsonian Institute certified Bird Friendly blend to help raise funds and awareness for Canada's Pelee Island Bird Observatory (PIBO). Situated in the western end of Lake Erie, PIBO is a non-profit organization devoted to the study and conservation of migratory birds. PIBO's purpose is to collect and disseminate data that will help understand changes taking place in the populations of migratory birds. $1.00 of the proceeds from each pound sold will be donated to PIBO.

Balzac's Coffee Roasters 100% Arabica Coffee Deeply rooted in the traditional European artistry and hand-crafted coffee roasting, Balzac's micro-roasts the finest selection of high-grown Arabica beans in single 35 kilogram batches. We employ no automated or continuous feed technology. Each varietal is carefully roasted to a degree that will preserve and enhance its inherent and unique qualities. Our roasting style reflects the insight and philosophy of the Slow Food Movement, which we believe has a strongly discernible effect on the resulting taste and quality of our coffees.

Finca Buena Vista is owned by Eneil Bayona and is located in the village of Minca. Eneil loves to produce coffee; it’s been in his family as long as he can remember. It hasn’t always been easy though, as he’d gotten discouraged by low coffee prices. Since then, he’s worked hard to make sure his coffee is certified as Organic, which has gotten him a much higher premium that he uses to continually re-invest in production and improvement. Eneil is heavily involved in the region and works with neighboring producers to pilot new planting programs and test new varietals.

Whole Bean Grind Chart

If you are purchasing a bag of whole bean coffee on our website, you can select your grind method of choice (at no extra charge!) from the dropdown and we will grind and ship it to you. We grind the beans freshly for you at our warehouse in ECS Coffee Burlington right before your order is shipped, and reseal the package to maintain optimal freshness in transit.

If you are visiting us in store, you can also request for your beans to be ground in store before you take them home.

We use a commercial BUNN Burr Grinder to grind the beans.

Please note: Freshly ground coffee is non-refundable and not returnable. To ensure that you receive a ground coffee that is consistent with your brew method of choice, refer to our Grind Chart below! 

FINE

For use with espresso machines. Fine coffee grinds will have the size and feel of sand.

MEDIUM FINE

Choose a medium fine grind if you are brewing with a Moka Pot, stovetop espresso brewers or an Aeropress.

MEDIUM

Cone Filter - We use two medium settings depending on your brewer. The Cone Filter medium setting is a bit finer, and is suitable for pour-over drip brewers (cone style) such as Hario, Melitta, Clever. It is also used for cone style automatic brewers.

Flat Bottom Filter - This setting is suitable for coffee machines with a flat bottom basket filter, such as commercial automatic drip machines. It is also an appropriate setting for if you have a refillable coffee capsule for use in Keurig® machines. Medium coffee grinds will be around the same size as sea salt.

PERCOLATOR

If you are brewing with a percolator, the grind setting is a bit coarser than your standard medium grind, to minimize grinds making it through the filter. We use a percolator-specific setting on our grinder.

MEDIUM COARSE

 Vaccuum brewers, Chemex. 

COARSE

For french press, cold brew coffee. A coarse grind is very chunky in look, like crushed peppercorns.

Remember that this coffee grind chart is a guideline! If you use a coffee brewing method that is not listed here, feel free to reach out and we will let you know which grind is the best for your brewer.
