What is freeze-dried specialty coffee?
We start with hand-roasted, direct trade coffee, and state-of-the-art brewing equipment. After precision brewing, the coffee is freeze-dried in an oxygen and chemical free environment. You're then left with a water soluble powder aka perfectly brewed coffee, in powder form.
But I’ve already got a coffee machine at home, why would I buy this?
Well you don’t just have one knife in the drawer do you? The big machine at home is your best chef’s knife for when you’re preparing a feast or cutting up a heap of veggies. Brill is like that little nifty paring knife, to cut the top of strawberries, agile, responsive, quick, silent.
Coffee in a couple of seconds, no mess. Kinda like those pod machines except way tastier and minus the landfill.
Do you guys offer a subscription service?
Not at the moment, but we have the option for you to buy multiple jars at a cheaper rate.
What does it taste like?
While all of our blends and single origin coffees will have different tasting notes, the best way to compare it is between a long black and a filter coffee (pour over/batch brew). Think of it like we’re your favourite barista in a jar and all you need is a teaspoon, kettle and cup.
Do you ship Internationally?
Yes, we do!
What is the shelf life?
Freeze-drying a product seperates moisture from the dry ingredient. This means there's zero moisture left, allowing for a very stable and long shelf-life. The Brill jars have a 2+ year shelf life.
Do you add chemicals?
Abolutely not. Our coffee is 100% chemical free and we use water as a solvent during the extraction process. There are no preservatives or fillers, compared to that gross supermarket stuff (Nescaf....what?)
We have 13 different awards for our branding. You can read more about it here.
How do I make a cup of instant brilliance?
What you’ll need for a cup of Brill:
Cup, water, 3g of Brill.
Step 1: Heat water
(Specialty coffee experts recommend 88 degrees, however you do you, who are we to tell you how to live your life)
Step 2: Add half a teaspoon of Brill.
Step 3: Pour in water and stir
Step 4: Add milk or drink straight.
We don’t want to stop you there. You can reconstitute to espresso strength and make a flat white. You can even mix it with vodka and make an espresso martini. You can bake with it. It dissolves in hot or cold liquids with agitation, and it’s a super versatile, fun, easy, and accessible way to interact with specialty coffee.
