Life offers us a staggering number of options – coffee is no exception

Starting with the basics, the best is fresh.

– If you do not have a coffee bean grinder, choose ground coffee (filter ground). It won’t keep its freshness as long as a bean, but it’s a good place to start.

– One more important point before running to the supermarket (or Amazon) – Types of barbecue:

  • Espresso roasting – designed for espresso machines
  • Filter Roasting – Designed for a superior method of brewing coffee i.e Caferiere, Aeropress, drip.

and this is where it gets cloudy or milky as you like, another guide for you

  • If you prefer black, opt for a Single origin coffee (from a single known geographic location, such as a farm or farm)
  • If you like to drink it with milk / cream, make a Mix

First, taste your black coffee and add milk if you want … are you still with me?

Now, choose a region from which your coffee originated: the “Coffee Belt” of the world.

Coffee is grown in the warmest latitudes in the world between the Tropic of Cancer and Capricorn. Within this “coffee belt” there is a great variety of conditions of altitude, rain, sun and soil that will alter the flavor of the coffee, as well as the viticulture.

  • Central and South American coffee with a chocolate flavor, clean and sweet It is known for its hint of chocolate and nutty flavor. Brazil has a heavier bodied peanut character. Colombian coffee is smooth with a caramel or toffee flavor.
  • East African or Arabic coffee for a complex fruity flavor. East African and Arabic coffees have a fruity taste. They have nuances similar to a sweeter and more fruity wine. They also have a lighter flavor than coffee from other regions. Ethiopian coffee has complex aromas of berries and wine, while Kenya is known for its stone fruit influence.

  • Asian coffee for an earthy and delicious taste. If you prefer a more earthy and bitter taste, Asian coffee is a good option. Coffees made in Asian countries tend to taste richer and earthier. They will be more bitter than sweet compared to coffee from other regions.

  • Indonesian coffee for a spicy and earthy flavor. Indonesian coffee has a more full-bodied, earthy flavor, along with a hint of spice. If you want something bitter but tasty, Indonesian coffee is a great option.
    The roast and therefore the flavor
    Light roast: It is likely to be a bit more acidic than other roasts. If you don’t like sweeter-tasting coffees, a light roast is a good option.
    Medium roast: they tend to preserve flavors better during preparation. If you want to taste the characteristic caramel flavor of a Colombian, opt for a medium roast.
    Dark roast: it will diminish the flavor a bit. You will still get some of the original coffee flavor, but it can end up with a bittersweet aftertaste or undertones. Try it if you prefer your coffee less sweet.
    And finally … a good coffee should provide:
    • Details about its origin, where it was grown, roasted and ground.
    • A “toast on” date, try to consume within a month from this date.
    • Check Ethics – A large% now have the Fair Trade & Rain Forest Alliance, but just because it doesn’t have a badge doesn’t mean it’s unethical. Small coffee producers may be part of a cooperative that has set standards for fair wages, etc.

    Be careful: caffeine levels vary by coffee. Coffee generally has between 65 and 100 milligrams of caffeine per cup. The strongest coffee would be on the higher end of this spectrum, while the weaker coffee would be on the lower end.

    • Non-decaf coffee is 100% caffeine free, so if you are sensitive to caffeine, always check the content … our decaf coffee is delicious.
