Definitely! you can purchase bags of Coffee Planet Coffee from any of our retail outlets and very soon it will be available from over 100 convenient locations nationwide! Watch this space!!
Oops!! On my way!!!
Of course not!
Turkish coffee is available to everyone! Its a very dark roasted coffee, finelye ground and cooked (rather than brewed) in a traditional pot (called a Cezve) over a heat source such as a fire.
When we can, indeed we do. Currently we are working to source directly all of our coffee but it is often too inefficient to direct source if buying ins small quantities so just over 50% of our coffee currently is sourced directly. We are aiming to improve this by the end of 2011.
Yes we do! Both in our Self-Service vending machines as well in our retail stores...
Self-Service - Press the Decaf Option button before selecting your drink. Fresh beans will be delivered from a separate hopper containing only Decaf'd beans.
Retail Stores - When ordering your coffee with our Bean Team, just request that you would prefer Decaf and job done! A fab Coffee Planet without the caffeine!
Yes we do! We roast it in our state-of-the-art facility in Jebel Ali in Dubai which we built in 2010. Prior to this we had our own smaller facility in Dubai but we grew out of that one within a couple of years.
Definitely neither fridge or freezer! Coffee deteriorates when it is exposed to air (a bit like an apple when you bite into it and leave it for a few mins - it goes brown). The moisture in the cold air of a fridge or freezer compounds this and accelerates the deterioration and so flavours break down. Not good!
e recommend an air tight container, in a cool, dry place.
Tupperware and a cupboard suits!
We thought this was a good enough question to dedicate a whole page to it! Look up our Perfect Cafetiere Page on our website for our 5 step guide (with pictures). Enjoy!
There a few different methods. Let us explain:
This is where the coffee beans are steamed with a salt solution and then using a chemical solvent to remove the caffeine. This was the very first method invented in the early 1900's!
Swiss Water Process
This is a fairly complex method but the most healthy. The green coffee is soaked in hot water releasing caffeine and coffee solids into the water. The beans are then discarded. This water is then carbon filtered to remove the
Good question! It depends if it is whole beans or ground.
Provided it is kept in an air tight container and stored in a cool, dry, dark place (cupboard!) then if it is beans then it should be good for a few months but if it is ground then we recommend using within 2 weeks as many of the flavour characteristics will be lost after this time...
One point to note is not to store it in a fridge or freezer, despite the rumours that this is best place to store coffee, trust us as coffee people, its
Currently, we are serving over 6,000,000 cups of coffee every year throughout all of our business streams. Thats a LOT of coffee and its growing every year!!
In the coffee world, it is a known fact that there are more flavour characteristics to be found in coffee than there are in wine! Take that grapes!!
Actually, at last count, there were around 847 detected flavour profiles discovered....crazy huh?!
This all depends on the taste profile you prefer as well as the method of making the coffee. There are a number of variables when making a coffee (using a coffee machine) which are:
- amount of coffee
- grind size
- tamping pressure
- amount of water used to extract
An alteration of any of the above can cause a change in the taste profile, however, if all are adjusted accordingly, you can use less or more coffee and still have a great tasting coffee in your cup!
Hmmmm...we don't think so but we are not vets! Even pets love Coffee Planet!!

Arabica coffee is a coffee species where as Arabic coffee is a particular style of coffee; lightly roasted beans in order to maximise the flavour profile of the coffee and served from an Arabic coffee pot (called a Dallah).
Hmmmm...technically it is neither. The coffee bean is in fact the seed of the fruit from the coffee tree...!

Well, tell your mother that Coffee is actually good for you in moderation...it has actually been linked to help reduce prostrate issues in a study of over 50,000 men in early 2011... Drink up guys!
No sugar for us. Coffee Planet coffee is some of the freshest you will taste and has a great natural fresh sweetness about it so sugar is often unnecessary.
When we have guests to try our coffee, they often reach for the sugar before they try it as they have sugar as a habit and often to mask the bitterness of bad coffee. We always tell people to try their coffee first before adding sugar and amazingly (to them) it is usually not required!
That's strange...we had the same email!!
We are no financial advisers but are mere coffee folk, however we suggest not!

Well coffee can be grown at a range of altitudes depending on the species of the coffee. Robusta (boo!) can be grown at lower altitudes but Arabica (Yay!) is best grown at altitudes above 1500m and can be found up to 3000m above sea level...

Arabica is the premium coffee species, grown at high altitude and is a nurtured tree, restricted in height to allow more nutrients to the coffee beans growing from it. Arabica provides a very smooth coffee without the bitter aftertaste.
Robusta is grown at almost any altitude with less care for the tree so less nutrients get to the coffee beans growing from it and this is detected in the end prooduct with a bitter taste. It is also a lot cheaper to produce than Arabica coffee beans and so it
Hmmm...we love all coffee equally! ;-)

Currently we source from about 17 different countriesa round the world, including the major coffee growing countries like Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Honduras, Ethiopia, Kenya, India and Mexico!
Good question! haha... We simply don't know!
We use full fat milk as the fat content and sweetness compliments the taste profile of Coffee Planet and also it aids the foaming process of the milk to give wonderfully smooth texture. Delicious!
Great question! I think we should invent one!! Why does tea have cutlery named after it!? Hmmmm...
Well as our coffee is freshly roasted in Dubai, we aim to get our coffee into your cups within 4 weeks of it being roasted. This means that you're often drinking the freshest coffee available!
Imported coffees usually aren't fresh and can often be many months old by the time they arrive on the supermarket shelf.
Well, we have this remark quite often and although we do like coffee strong, people often confuse strength for the brightness present in fresh coffee. We aim to get our coffee into cups within 2 weeks of it being roasted so it is very fresh compared to almost all other coffees available in the market. Welcome to the world of real, fresh coffee!
