Leven’s Coffee Company Introduces Their Signature Roasts with XPress Lid by SmartCup

Leven’s Coffee Company is a Fair Trade and Organic Coffee Roastery providing Saskatoon, SK, with select coffees from around the world and serving them with an innovative portable and disposable French press called XPress lid by SmartCup.

The XPress lid French press system allows the coffee grounds to remain in direct contact with the brewing water, and the grounds are filtered from the water via a mesh instead of a paper filter. Coffee brewed with a French press captures more of the coffee’s flavor and its essential oils, which become trapped in a traditional drip-brew machine’s paper filters.

“We feel that French press coffee is the best way to experience the flavor and aroma of quality coffees,” said Marie Tupper, Owner. “If you haven’t tried a cup of XPress French coffee, you are in for a treat.”

Leven’s is a Fair Trade and Organic coffee Roastery, which roasts single origin 100% Arabica beans that has developed their signature line of coffee including Dominican Republic – dark roast, Costa Rican – Las Amistad, Mexican – Cafe Femenino, Ethiopian – Yirgacheffe, Papua New Guinea, Guatemalan – Cafe Femenino, Sumatran, Decaf Peruvian and Espresso.

Many coffee shops may only allow you to experience what is in the pot; at Leven’s the entire inventory of coffee is available for the asking. Leven’s also prides itself on being environmentally responsible by using only 100% biodegradable cups, recyclable lids and a coffee bag recycling program.

“Leven’s Coffee Company is committed to providing the freshest, most unique and delicious brews in Saskatoon, SK, and we are proud that they are utilizing the XPress lid to showcase their roasts,” explained Kent Rhodes, CEO of SmartCup, Inc.

LEVEN’S Coffee Company explains killer coffee

Marie showcases XPress Pressed CoffeeLEVEN’S Coffee Company explains how to have a killer coffee all the time:

LEVEN’S Coffee Company loves French press coffee. Leven’s coffee “blooms” as the water is poured over the grounds, releasing an intense aroma that makes you smile. The beans are left to steep for 4 minutes. Steeping is the only way that the true flavour of coffee can be experienced. Essential oils are fully extracted creating a rich, full expression of flavour. In this case, sacrificing 4 minutes for coffee that will make you grin from ear to ear is worth it. LEVEN’S Coffee Company makes French Press in a disposable, recyclable cup by SmartCUp. Yes, that’s right…
