More Info

    Balzac's Coffee Roasters. 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.

    Fairtrade Standards are designed to support the sustainable development of small producer organizations and agricultural workers in developing countries. The Fairtrade Standards incorporate a holistic blend of social, economic, and environmental criteria aimed at improvements that benefit producers and their communities. Traders are also covered by the standards, underscoring the commitments companies and businesses must make to contribute to sustainability in their supply chains and operations.

    Organic Verification is carried out by accredited certifying agencies. Requirements for this certification include no use of prohibited substances on the land for at least three years. This includes most synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Other certification requirements include a buffer between the coffee and any other crop not grown organically, a plan that demonstrates methods that prevent soil erosion, and other sustainable agricultural criteria.

      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.
