More Info

Planet Bean began roasting coffee in downtown Guelph in 1997. Ours was the first roastery in the city for at least half a century. From the beginning our focus was on certified fairtrade and organic gourmet arabica coffee. The scent of our coffee roastery became a part of the downtown experience and was an aromatic beacon for anyone with a fine sense of flavour. Although Planet Bean has moved shop a few times and changed its structure and expanded, it is still Guelphs premier and primo coffee company.

    The Swiss Water Decaffeination process uses no organic solvents; only water is used to decaffeinate beans, a technique first developed in Switzerland in 1933.

    The process uses green coffee extract (GCE) for the caffeine extraction mechanism. Green coffee extract is a solution containing the water-soluble components of green coffee except for the caffeine, obtained by soaking green coffee beans in hot water, then filtering through an activated charcoal filter to remove the caffeine molecules. Fresh beans containing both caffeine and the other components are added to the GCE solution, where the gradient pressure difference between the GCE (which is caffeine-deficient) and the green coffee (which is caffeine-rich) causes the caffeine molecules to migrate from the green coffee into the GCE. Because GCE is saturated with the other water-soluble components of green coffee, only the caffeine molecule migrates to the GCE; the other water-soluble coffee elements are retained in the green coffee. The newly caffeine-rich GCE solution is then passed through the activated carbon filters to remove the caffeine again, and the process is repeated. The continuous batch process takes 8–10 hours to meet the final residual decaffeinated target.

    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.
