500g coffee beans

Coffee has been around since the 15th century. As the legend goes, an Ethiopian man named Kaldi noticed his goats, who had eaten berries from coffee plants, had a hard time sleeping. After informing the village about this strange occurrence, they banded together and figured out how to make "tea" with the coffee "berries".

However, the discovery of coffee didn't appear in writing until 16 71.

In the mid-1600s coffee was bought back to New York - which was called New Amsterdam at the time. Coffee shops began to steadily appear, but tea was the drink of choice in the area until a heavy tax was imposed on it by King George III. Communists revolted against this tax by switching from drinking tea to drinking coffee.

Fast forward to today, and coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world. The beans are grown in over 70 countries and traded all with even more. There are now thousands of different coffee beans available, which often makes it hard for consumers to decide which is best for them.

Fortunately, at Glass House Mountain's coffee, we have coffee beans available in various sized bags, including a 500g bag. These smaller bags are a great size to allow consumers to try different beans to discover their favourites.
