French Press

The French press is beloved for its simplicity and full-bodied flavor. Here’s how it works: coarsely ground coffee is steeped in hot water, and after a few minutes, a plunge separates the grounds from the liquid. The result? A rich, aromatic cup of coffee that captures all the coffee’s natural oils and flavors. It’s perfect for those who appreciate a robust and bold brew.

Pour-Over

Pour-over brewing allows for the ultimate control over your coffee’s flavor. Hot water is poured evenly over coffee grounds in a filter, allowing you to regulate the water flow and brew time. This method delivers a clean, well-balanced cup, highlighting the coffee’s nuanced flavors. It’s ideal for those who enjoy a lighter, more delicate taste profile.

Auto Drip Coffee Maker

Auto drip coffee makers are a staple in many households for their convenience and consistent results. These machines automate the brewing process, delivering a reliable cup of coffee with minimal effort. Perfect for busy mornings when you need your caffeine fix without the fuss.

Espresso

Espresso, the foundation of many beloved coffee drinks, is brewed by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee under pressure. It’s known for its intense flavor and concentrated richness. Whether you enjoy it as a straight shot or use it as the base for lattes and cappuccinos, espresso offers a bold coffee experience.

Cold brew

Cold brew is a popular method for making smooth and refreshing iced coffee with low acidity and a naturally sweet flavor. It involves steeping coarsely ground coffee in cold water for an extended period, usually 12 to 24 hours, then straining the coffee concentrate and diluting it with water or milk.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT GRIND LEVEL

COARSE GRIND

Perfect for: French Press. Coarse grinds resemble breadcrumbs and are perfect for French press brewing. The larger particles allow for a slow extraction, resulting in a robust and full-bodied coffee.

MEDIUM GRIND

Perfect for: Auto Drip. With a texture similar to sea salt, medium grinds are ideal for drip coffee makers. They provide a balanced extraction, neither too fast nor too slow, for a clean and flavorful cup.

MEDIUM-FINE GRIND

Perfect for: Pour Over. If you prefer the pour over brewing method, the grind of your beans should fall into the sweet spot right between Medium and Fine. This allows for a slow yet steady flow of water through the coffee to extract loads of flavor.

FINE GRIND

Perfect for: Espresso. Fine grinds, resembling table salt, are essential for espresso machines. The compacted grounds create high pressure, extracting rich flavors and forming the creamy crema on top.

WHOLE BEAN

Whole bean coffee is the go-to choice for home baristas and those who like to experiment in search of the perfect cup of coffee. Many people prefer whole bean so that all the flavors stay locked inside the bean until just before the coffee is brewed, creating an intensely fresh taste and aroma.

FAVORITES AT HOME

LATTE

A classic favorite, the latte combines espresso with steamed milk and a thin layer of froth. Start by brewing a double shot of espresso and frothing milk to achieve a creamy texture. Pour the steamed milk over the espresso, holding back the froth with a spoon, then spoon the remaining froth on top for the perfect finishing touch.

AMERICANO

For a smooth and satisfying brew, the Americano blends espresso with hot water to create a milder and more diluted coffee. Brew a double shot of espresso and add hot water to taste, adjusting the strength and flavor to suit your preferences. Serve in a preheated cup for optimal temperature retention and enjoy the rich, bold flavors of an Americano anytime.

CAPPUCCINO

Known for its luxurious taste and velvety texture, a cappuccino is made with equal parts espresso, steamed milk, and frothed milk. Brew a double shot of espresso and steam milk to achieve a velvety microfoam. Pour the steamed milk over the espresso, followed by a dollop of froth, creating layers of flavor and texture for a truly decadent coffee experience.

MACCHIATO

Savor the simplicity and intensity of a macchiato, featuring a shot of espresso “stained” with a small amount of frothed milk. Brew a single shot of espresso and gently spoon a dollop of frothed milk onto the surface, creating a contrast of rich espresso and velvety foam. The result is a bold and flavorful coffee with a touch of sweetness and creaminess.

FLAT WHITE

For some, nothing beats the smooth and creamy texture of a flat white, characterized by velvety microfoam and a double shot of espresso. Brew two shots of espresso and steam milk to achieve a velvety texture, with minimal foam. Pour the steamed milk over the espresso, allowing the foam to settle on top for a rich, indulgent coffee experience.

MOCHA

Treat your sweet tooth to a decadent mocha, blending espresso with rich chocolate syrup and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream. Brew a double shot of espresso and stir in chocolate syrup to taste, then steam milk to achieve a creamy texture. Pour the chocolate-infused milk over the espresso, top with whipped cream, and garnish with chocolate shavings for a delightful treat that combines the richness of coffee with the sweetness of chocolate.

AFFOGATO

A simple yet elegant dessert, the affogato features a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream “drowned” in a shot of hot espresso. Brew a single shot of espresso and pour it over a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream, allowing the heat of the coffee to melt the ice cream slightly and create a creamy, indulgent treat. Enjoy the contrasting flavors and textures of hot espresso and cold ice cream for a refreshing and satisfying dessert experience.
