We’re passionate about providing exceptional coffee experiences at home. And while we’re confident that our coffee is always on point, we want to make sure you have a streamlined and seamless web purchasing experience. If you have any questions in regards to your web experience, you want advice on which coffee to choose or something else for that matter, we’ve probably covered it here. If not, shoot us an email as we’re happy to help.

COVID-19

No doubt, just like ourselves, your thoughts, inboxes and news feeds are filled with the shifting landscape of the current COVID-19 outbreak and how it will affect your business and your families. At Five Senses, we’re tackling this with a focused team who are meeting daily, making sure we’re doing everything possible to continue roasting and delivering coffees to you while ensuring everyone’s health is a top priority.

The first step in this is that we’re following all Australian Government Department of Health and WHO’s recommendations for hygiene and social distancing (you can keep up to date here). We’ve been dosing out the hand sanitizer liberally and ramped up surface sanitization and deep cleaning regimes. Our personable staff are now stopping their natural urges to handshake, hug or hi-five, instead opting for the footshake or ‘howdy’ from appropriate distances, while many of them are also working from home.

The other thing we’re doing is continuing to roast and send out delicious coffee! While we’re taking every step possible to protect the heart of our business – our roasting and operations teams – in many ways, they’re committed to maintaining supply as usual. Our Coffee Department is working closely with their team, our importers and extended supply chains to ensure access to our green bean stock continues un-interrupted. At this point we don’t forsee any disruption to supply as normal, however, as we know, it’s a rapidly changing landscape. We’ll make sure to keep you informed of any updates to this situation so we can all manage things as smoothly as possible.

COFFEE

Just like wine, every coffee is different. So if you’re just getting started on your Five Senses Coffee journey here’s a few quick suggestions:

Coffee with milk…

CROMPTON ROAD BLEND – a nod to full bodied traditional espresso flavours this blend bursts through the milk with bold flavours of bakers chocolate and mazipan.

Coffee with milk and/or black…

DARK HORSE BLEND – whether served with milk or black, this blend is complex in character with delicious herbal undertones.

Black coffee…

ARDI, ETHIOPIA – appreciate the nuances of this bright and punchy Ethiopian coffee that’s perfectly suited to filter or long blacks.

For more indepth info on choosing a cover that best suits your palate, check out our ‘Coffee Selection Guide‘.

Buy fresh roasted coffee that clearly identifies the date it was roasted (not a ‘best before’ date) and for maximum enjoyment look to use it all up no later than three weeks after the roast date. The ideal ‘peak’ flavour times are usually found between day 7 and 14, which will be the norm for most of the great cafes you visit. You can still potentially look to use beans for up to 4 weeks, but most of the time, after day 14 the quality and flavour intensity will start to fade and leave you with some very flat cups and sad faces.

Coffee is a seasonal product, just like the fruit we get here in Aus. Chances are your favourite coffee is either:

  1. Finished up for the season and we’re waiting on a fresh harvest, OR
  2. A limited release coffee we carefully select to showcase some incredible origins we find in our travels. The bad news is we might not get it in again any time soon. Or maybe we will – only the cupping table will tell!

Yes, we can grind your coffee for you. But we always like to take this opportunity to highlight the benefits of grinding on demand. For all the reasons why, have a read of this article: Why Grind On Demand. The Mazzer grinders and Baratza Settes are fantastic for espresso, and if you’re after a filter grinder take a look at the Baratza Virtuoso. Explore our full range of grinders here.

As the names would suggest, coffees proudly displaying these tags have been roasted with specific brewing equipment in mind. An espresso roast coffee has been developed in the roaster further increasing caramelisation and body, which suits being prepared on an espresso machine to extract delicious elixir. A filter roasted coffee has been less developed in order to retain more of the sparkling acidity that a filtered cup of brew desires.

Essentially the Cleanskin is all of our batch ends for each cafes order as it’s very hard to roast spot on to a cafes specific order quantity due to moisture loss. It’s not actually one or a few different café blends each time. Each cleanskin bag is most likely up to 5 different origins, but no older than 7 days. Cleanskin is a perfect way to save a few dollars, but for a guaranteed and consistent taste profile, definitely stick to our main blends.

SUBSCRIPTIONS


Our coffee subscriptions are set up to charge you each time an order processes rather than an up-front total payment. Think Netflix instead of a Magazine. This can be cancelled any time!

You can make many changes to your coffee subscription from the My Account > Subscriptions section.

Things you can do:

  • Pause subscription: put the subscription on pause until you restart it.
  • Send coffee now: urgently need coffee? We’ll send your next order asap!
  • Skip next delivery: got a bit of a stockpile and need a break? We’ll skip the next order for you.
  • Change delivery address
  • Change dispatch date: change the next dispatch date of your subscription.
  • Change frequency: want delivery more of less often?
  • Change quantity: up (or reduce!) the amount of coffee delivered.
  • Change coffee: found a favourite blend after several deliveries of “choose for me”? Pick your favourite and look forward to every delivery!
  • Cancel subscription

Yep! Our coffee subscriptions can be cancelled any time your coffee subscription from the My Account > Subscriptions section.

Unfortunately you can’t select a specific coffee for the single origin or filter subscription – origins come and go over the season and it creates massive issues when we then run out of people’s favourites! If you’re after a specific taste profile each time, we recommend going with a blend subscription – you can choose your favourite blend. Or add a note to your single origin subscription saying “Please send the [ORIGIN]”. Our production team should take note and change the coffee for you. But just note as it requires our team to manually update the order, it’s not 100% guaranteed.
