We created this Album to collect Specialty Coffee Labels for different purposes:

  1. Environmental sustainability: our packages are made of 100% recyclable plastic (CO2 Neutral) and the labels in FSC paper. You can easily peel off the labels to differentiate them (PET / PE plastic and PAPP20 paper) in an eco-sustainable way with a low impact on the environment.
  2. Collection: you can collect our new labels and write recipes and comments at the bottom of the page.
  3. Uniqueness: because no one had ever done it before, simple! :)

But ultimately, we would like to let you know that once the album is complete, you will receive a precious prize for the future of all of us. To find out which one, read the FAQ below.

How to request the album
  1. To receive it you must add it to your cart and it will be sent to you for FREE together with the coffee or accessories purchased.
  2. You can request only the collector's album without any purchase (always adding it to the cart), it will be sent to your home immediately and you will pay only for shipping costs.
  3. You can order it through this page, add it to your cart and collect it here from us for free (IMPORTANT: check that you have entered the "Collect in store" option to avoid paying shipping costs)
FAQ

What material is the album made of?

The album is made entirely of FSC recycled paper

What is that number inside the first page at the top right?

It is the unique number of the album in your possession, no two are alike, we need to confirm that it is not used by several people to get the prize, but also to give you a unique and rare product.

What happens when I finish the album?

You will win a fantastic prize! Once you have finished the album by attaching the 20 labels, you will have to make a short video and show us while you browse it, you will have to upload it to Instagram Stories or Feed, remembering to Tag us directly in the post. (@garagecoffeebros)

What do I do if I don't have Instagram?

  1. You can ask a friend to post it on their profile (always tagging us @garagecoffeebros)
  2. You can make a Story or Post on Facebook (always tagging us @garagecoffeebros)

Will the labels all have to be different?

No, but we ask you to have at least 10 different labels out of a total of 20 labels, to get the prize.

Attention, the valid labels are only the colored ones found on the 250g packets of coffee, both ground and in beans.

What is the prize?

As Garage Coffee Bros. we have joined an environmental sustainability campaign, we have ADOPTED coffee trees (but not only) that will be planted in Ecuador. When you finish the album and follow the steps listed above, one of these trees will pass up for adoption to you and you will be able to see for the rest of its life, how it grows and where it is located via Google Maps.

How do i adopt the tree?

We will send you an email as a link to Treedom.net where you can redeem the adoption of the tree which will in fact pass to you. Isn't that wonderful?

Is adoption free?

The adoption, worth € 19.90, is totally free for you because we have already paid for everything. You will just have to register on the site and see the tree grow and support the environment.

And then, what will happen next?

Here comes the most important part for us because in the course of its life it will absorb CO2 (about 50kg per year) and will help to counteract the excess of carbon dioxide that humans produce today. For a better world!

How to choose:

NITROGEN AND VACUUM
Our packages are all packaged in a protected atmosphere (first under vacuum and then we insert nitrogen), using this particular technology which eliminates oxygen in the package, the coffee remains fresh for up to 3 months after roasting.
ROASTING

We roast in two different ways, dividing into two main groups, based on the type of extraction:

  • Light: suitable for Filtro/Aeropress type extractions, or for those looking for a coffee with a note of strong acidity and many aromas.
  • Medium: suitable for Espresso/Moka extractions, or for those who want a coffee with a much more intense flavor and a hint of bitterness.

GRINDING

There are dozens of different grindings, it can be said that each machine or equipment requires a specific grinding.

With us you can choose to buy ground coffee for Moka or Filter.

We have tried to summarize them as follows:

  • Jug/Cezve:
  • Espresso:
  • Moka:
  • V60 Filter:
  • Chemex:
  • French Press/Infusore:

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Coffee has a limited shelf life when we talk about quality. Even if up to 24 months can be written on the label, generally high quality coffee has lost most of its flavor and aroma in a few months. We recommend drinking it between 10 days and 60 days after the roasting date (provided the bag has never been opened). When the bag is opened, the quality of the coffee always deteriorates rapidly and aromas and flavor are lost within a few days. Unfortunately, the roasting date is not always written, especially by larger companies. On our packages you will find it clearly written on the back.

P.S. our bags are all vacuum packaged with added nitrogen, which extends the potential shelf life of the product.

How to do:

ESPRESSO

Espresso requires some precision rules:

  • Quality coffee
  • Recommended roasting within 30-40 days
  • Fine grinding
  • Water temperature around 90-92°
  • A single dose of 8-9g (double dose of 15-17g)
  • Extraction time approximately 25 seconds

The use of quality espresso machines (range from €600 and up) can ensure a better result.
Preferably are machines that also have a coffee grinder to grind "fresh" coffee

MOKA

The Moka requires a little attention:

  • Use filtered or bottled water (NO TAP)
  • Recommended roasting within 30-40 days
  • Medium-fine grinding
  • Fill the boiler with water without exceeding the valve
  • Place the ground coffee into the filter without pressing or making any bumps, simply level it at the edge
  • Place over medium heat
  • Wait for the liquid to rise through the chimney, without letting it gurgle (TURN OFF AS SOON AS THE FLOW OF COFFEE BEGINS TO GO FAST AND COLOURLESS)
  • Mix before serving

The Moka should only be washed with water and any neutral detergents (taking care to rinse carefully with water), never in the dishwasher or with abrasive sponges.

FILTER V60/CHEMEX

Filter or Chemex coffee requires precision in times and weights, some advice:

  • Quality coffee
  • Recommended roasting within 20 days
  • Medium grind (medium-coarse for Chemex)
  • Filtered or bottled water
  • Water temperature of approximately 90-94° depending on the coffee used (generally those washed at higher temperatures)
  • Approximately 15g of ground coffee for every 250g of water (Chemex at least 30g per 500g of water)
  • Pre-infuse for 30-40 seconds by pouring hot water for double the weight of coffee used
  • Pour the water in two or three steps as desired with a rotating direction, being careful not to create too much turbulence
  • Contact/percolation time approximately 3 minutes (4-5 for Chemex)

A light roast is generally recommended for filter systems

AEROPRESS

The Aeropress requires some precision rules:

  • Quality coffee
  • Recommended roasting within 20-30 days
  • Medium grind (or as preferred)
  • Use filtered water or bottle
  • Water temperature around 85-90°
  • A dose of approximately 17g per 200-220g of water
  • Pour water for pre-infusion of 30-40 seconds
  • Mix with the appropriate spoon
  • Then pour in the remaining water and close the cap
  • Turn the aeropress upside down and press firmly but steadily until extraction is complete
  • Total contact/infusion time 2-3 minutes
