The ALTERRA® coffee range from MARS
provides for a wide range of personal preferences, with a variety of
blends and 100% origin coffees. Each coffee lies somewhere along two
scales: one scale is made up by the traditional levels of roasting-
light, medium and dark. The other concerns the coffee's taste, and is
divided into smooth, balanced, bright and intense. These two produce
four combinations: light & smooth, medium & balanced, medium
& bright, and dark & intense.
-Light & smooth-
Mild roast- A delicate easy drinking
coffee, with a sweet finish to enjoy all day long.
Smooth roast- Smooth, well-rounded
and wonderfully comfortable. A light roasted cup, with
a refreshing flavour.
-Medium & balanced-
Rich roast- A medium bodied coffee
with a fruity and sweet flavour that will shine through.
Colombia- Aromatic, 100% Colombian
beans are medium roasted to give a balanced, fragrant
-Medium & bright-
Papua New Guinea- 100% Papua New
Guinea coffee is medium roasted to give a full
bodied yet fruity flavourful cup.
Ethiopia- 100% Yirgacheffe beans are
medium roasted to give a distinctive bright, fruity flavour.
-Dark & intense-
Sumatra- 100% Sumatran arabica beans
are dark roasted to give a heavy bodied, complex cup with a
Espresso roast- A luscious blend of
dark roasted beans, delivering a heavy bodied, bold and earthy
Outside of the above combinations are
another pair of coffees- a medium roast coffee flavoured with
hazelnut, and finally, a decaffeinated smooth roast for those who
wish to avoid the shakes.
