We are very fussy with our coffee. Once we tried this at our local coffee shop I had to buy some. Excellent coffee. Wouldn't buy anything else now

Let me start by saying that we take our coffee seriously here at home. Our daughter is a barista. We bought our first hospitality size coffee machine for home in 1995 long before they became standard inclusions in domestic kitchens. Located at that time in Perth, we would visit the famous RE STORE. An Italian institution since 1936 in Perth, religiously for our coffee beans. All was well until we moved to Sydney. In NSW we began our hunt and tried many brands in our search for the perfect cup, and we were always underwhelmed. Then 13 years ago on our way to Warringah Mall we spied DANES. We started out with a variety of their blends but struck pay dirt when we tasted the Mocha Gold. Our quest ended that day and we have purchased 2x of the 1Kg bags each visit, ever since.
