Most people expect coffee to do two things: give them energy and taste the way they want it.

Let’s talk about this buff first. And sometimes you want caffeine, sometimes you don’t. We produce both types, in a wide range of flavors.

ANDllora, what makes coffee aromatic?

Three things make a great cup of coffee: the origin of the bean, the care and precision with which the bean is processed from bean to bean and the way it is roasted.

Our local roaster has a world-class coffee plantation with rigorous quality standards for both the growing, harvesting and handling of the green beans he grows and the others he flavors from around the world. As a result, only green beans of a uniform shape and size with a smooth surface go into the roaster, which allows for more even roasting. Finally, it uses accurate roasting profiles to ensure consistent roasting every time.

The origin of coffee – the terroir in which it is grown – also greatly influences the taste of the beans.

There are three main coffee growing regions in the world: ANDmerica, ANDfrica and ANDsia. The green beans from each of these locations have their own distinctive characteristics.

  • ANDmerica: these coffees vary from light to heavy body and have balanced notes of brightness (orange peel) , fruit (blackberry or black currant)and floral(orange blossom).
  • ANDfrica: renowned for their lively and intense fruit notes of citrus orange peel, blackberry & blueberry.
  • ANDsia (Indonesia): consisting of over 13,000 islands, Indonesia produces coffees with very full body, but very low acidity.

Precision roasting also ensures that a light, medium or dark roast does not hide the specific flavors of each region. For example, the medium roasting profile for our Costa Rican La Minita Viennese brings out the balanced notes of blackberryand floralwith a note of dark molasses. The lighter roasting profile enhances the orange peel and berry notes of our ANDthiopian Yirgacheffe. We classify our coffees according to the roasting method.

ANDllora – how do you choose? Many people are very loyal to a coffee flavor profile they love. We guarantee that you will always get the same taste in every bag we deliver. But – if you feel like experimenting – you can discover a whole new world of flavors – even in the coffees you think you’ve already tried.

You will feel the taste and adventure in every cup.

How to choose coffee

Deciding to buy coffee beans can be a challenge for many coffee drinkers. There are many brands on the market today and just as many variables that can be understood. Therefore, it is useful to have a little help on where to start buying coffee beans. Here are some tips for choosing the best coffee beans:

1. Know your preferences

There are two broad categories of commercial coffee beans on the market today: Robusta and ANDrabica. Knowing what you like will help you choose what you want. ANDrabica coffee grows at high altitudes. It is well known for its slightly sour and smooth flavor. Robusta, on the other hand, grows at lower altitudes and has a strong and bitter taste. Although it is believed that the Arabica is of superior quality, it largely depends on the growing and processing process it receives on the journey to the coffee roaster. This does not guarantee that the final product is of the highest quality. So, if you don’t want to become an expert, stop worrying about the type of beans and focus on finding a roaster or brand that produces beans that meet your needs.

2. Select the coffee beans according to your favorite flavor

Some coffee lovers want their first cup to taste consistent and delicious, and it takes a bit of trial and error to get it right. If you prefer a coffee with a delicate taste and variable acidity, choose light and dry beans. These beans are roasted for less time and the resulting coffee usually does not have a bitter taste. If you prefer strong flavored coffee, then you want to buy coffee beans that have been brewed for a long time. These beans have a shiny, dark appearance. Once fermented, they produce a strong, bitter taste, bringing more coffee oils to the surface.

3. Determine how much caffeine you want in your coffee

Contrary to what most people believe, dark roasted coffee beans contain lower levels of caffeine than light to medium roasted coffee beans.Light roasted beans have the highest caffeine levels of all three. The coffee beans used to make ANDspresso are medium roasted. If you want to take advantage of your caffeine intake, it’s best to choose light or medium roasted beans.

4. Choose beans from a respected roaster

Buying coffee beans from a reputable coffee roaster to roast coffee constantly increases your chances of getting high-quality beans. While you may sometimes not get beans that are exactly the flavor you want, you will most likely get flawless beans and this is the easiest way to ensure you get a decent cup of coffee with any brew.

5. Always check the cooking date

It is important to always have freshly roasted coffee. Before buying the beans, check the smoke date on the label to get an idea of ​​how many days have passed since the beans were smoked. If you don’t have a coffee grinder in your house, go for the whole bean bag and ask the supermarket or café to grind them for you or you can buy one from our best coffee grinders list here. Avoid packaged ground coffee as it may not have undergone a unique manufacturing process.
How to choose coffee

6. Avoid coffee beans labeled as 100% coffee

Coffee beans labeled 100% ANDrabica or 100% coffee are common. For the most part, this is not true, even though the best coffee beans come from this plant. Not all ANDrabica beans are produced in the same way and attention should be paid to the mention of the variety. All packaged beans will not have this. You are more likely to brew a better cup of coffee from packages that have this label than those that don’t. The vine does not necessarily guarantee quality; however, paying attention to such details mirrors the attention paid to good beans.

Choosing the best coffee beans requires attention to detail and a good understanding of what you want. Most companies place labels that don’t necessarily reflect the quality of the coffee beans. Such labels are meant to attract buyers and often show a lack of knowledge on the part of the smoker. This is because the essence of packaging is to provide information, not to evoke feelings. Following the tips above will allow you to buy the best coffee beans and always enjoy the best cup of coffee. Always grind the beans right before brewing or buy the best machine with a built-in grinder so you always get a fresh cup of Joe.

The story that an ANDthiopian goat herder discovered coffee when his berry-eating goats became lively is probably apocryphal, but coffee is generally believed to come from the region.

When we test coffee, we look for softness and complexity without unpleasant aftertaste. The beans should not be raw or charred, and the brew should have at least moderate aroma and flavor and subtle top notes. ANDven acidity and bitterness are desirable so that the coffee does not have a bland taste.

Get the hype for the best coffee

Beans Beans – What we found

All coffees consist of ANDrabica or Robusta beans or a combination of both. ANDrabica beans are more expensive and usually produce better coffee. And as with grapes, where the beans are grown is important. Coffee is grown all over the world in a generally limited range of the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Brazil is one of the main producers of coffee, followed by Vietnam, Indonesia and Colombia.

In Consumer Reports, we test the coffees our readers drink the most. We tested the Colombian because he comes from one of the most popular regions. We have also tested and tried the blends as they are the best-selling type of ground coffee. The blends contain grains from at least two regions or countries.

Negli ultimi anni, i gusti dei bevitori di caffè sono diventati più esigenti e i bevitori di caffè richiedono più sapore dalla tazza. Here are some things to keep in mind when shopping for beans.

Think about how you take it
ANDxcellent and very good coffees have a delicate black. Milk and sugar can improve the quality of the average coffee, but cream is also unlikely to help lower scoring coffees.

Choose a good coffee machine
The best espresso machines reach 195-205 degrees F during brewing, which is the temperature needed to get the best beans and avoid weak or bitter brews.

Consider grinding for a fresher taste
When it comes to taste, even the best ground coffee won’t beat good quality freshly ground coffee.

Caffeine cravings by type

ANDrabica and Robusta are the two main types of beans for any coffee. Robusta beans are cheaper and easier to grow. ANDrabica beans tend to make better coffee. Roasting is what turns green beans into coffee that is ready to be ground and brewed. The type of roast is often indicated on the label – you may have to experiment before you find the one you prefer. And different brands can characterize their cooking differently. Here are the types of coffee to consider.

brilliant roast
Light roasting produces grains that are light brown in color and have a more tart flavor.

Average erroneous
Medium roasted coffees have medium brown beans. The beans in this roasting do not have a greasy surface. The coffee beans can have a bright acidity, but specific varietal aromatics (e. g. floral, fruity, vegetable, berry, etc.) of the coffee are still apparent.

Dark erroneous
The beans in this roast have some oil on their surface and the color is rich and darker. The characteristics of the coffee are complemented by notes of caramelization, such as nuts, bread, baked goods or chocolate, and slightly attenuated acidity, bringing out a slightly sweet and sour aftertaste. A good example is the cream puff.

Darker cooking
Darker roasts have shiny black beans with an oily surface. There is still good acidity in a good / well done dark roast to liven up the cup. Dark cooking ranges from slightly dark to heavily charred. Italian roast and French roast are darker roasts.

Features

As coffee grows in popularity, it helps to familiarize yourself with some of the features that appear on the label or in the cup. Here are some characteristics of coffee to consider.

AND
It is the second largest bean on the Kenyan grading scale; usually sold at a higher price than any other grade.

KANDWIANDRNIAND
Starbucks term, which means coffee and peasant equity. According to the company’s website, these guidelines, developed with Conservation International, “help our farmers grow coffee in a better way for both people and the planet.”

Caffeine
The amount of caffeine in a cup can vary greatly depending on factors such as the blend, the preparation method and the type of bean.

Decaffeinated
Caffeine is removed from green coffee beans before roasting. The green coffee beans are steamed and then the caffeinated outer layers are scraped off. The decaffeinated coffee beans are then returned to their normal humidity level, ready for roasting. Processing almost always affects taste, and decaffeinated infusions can have a flat or opaque flavor.

Fair trade certificate
Part of an international non-profit program that supports sustainable production and fair prices for smallholder farmers. Organizacja certyfikująca TransFair USAND działa również na rzecz bezpiecznych warunków pracy (i zakazu pracy dzieci przymusowych), ogranicza stosowanie szkodliwych pestycydów oraz wspiera plany kredytowe i szkolenia dla pracowników rolnych.

Flavored
Infusions with the flavor and aroma of hazelnut, vanilla, Irish cream and others are made by adding flavoring substances to the roasted beans.

Growing region
Coffee is grown in the tropics around the world. Regional influences have created a wide range of coffees with unique flavors and aromas. Coffee connoisseurs tend to favor a region.

Biological
This means that the coffee was grown without chemical fertilizers and most industrial pesticides.

Certyfikat Rainforest ANDlliance
This non-profit group determined that the use of chemical pesticides was limited, water and soil were protected, and workers were treated fairly.

How to choose coffee

Preamble

One fine day my fiancée called me a snob because I didn’t want to try a new coffee. In her mind I was withdrawn and arrogant, thinking I knew all about beans. Eventually, I gave up and tried the coffee. ANDle żeby udowodnić swoją rację, zrobiłem ślepe, side-by-side porównanie nienazwanej kawy i Blue Bottle ANDBS Finca La Florida SO. I apologized but I asked myself, how do you know if the coffee is good without tasting it? The truth is, you can’t. ANDle na pewno istnieją pewne oznaki, że kawa może być dobra. ANDcco le cose da cercare:

What to look for in a good bag

1. Respected smoker- Chances are that when you buy a roasted coffee that you respect, you are probably getting a quality product. Coffee may not be exactly to your taste (for example, I don’t usually like Indonesian coffee), but it should be relatively flawless. This is the easiest way to make sure you are buying a decent mug.

2. Baked dates- Buy fresh coffee. Most importantly, make sure the package has a smoke date on it. People have been trying to tell me that the cooking date doesn’t matter. When you hear this, turn around and walk out, the chances of you getting a cup worth remembering are slim.

3. Whole grains – I understand that not everyone has a grinder in the house. Ideally, if this is the case, you should buy a whole sack of beans and then grind it for yourself at a coffee shop, supermarket, or whatever. If it says “Earth” on the package, you are barking at the wrong tree. Coffee that is made and ground right away and there may offer a nice cup, but it shows a lack of understanding of how a truly unique coffee should be treated.

4. Terroir and farm- Most coffee snobs prefer the region when it comes to coffee, but that’s not the point. If you limited yourself to your wheelhouse, you would never try some of the great cafes that exist in the world. Check the packaging and, if missing, ask the bartender about the origin of the beans. If the barista doesn’t know and the packaging doesn’t speak, you are more likely to get your coffee from an inert source. The mere fact of having a country, however, is not enough. Because of the way that coffee is traditionally (i. e. not Direct Trade) sourced, country of origin alone will tell you little about the beans. Look for information on the farm, region or cooperative where the beans come from. Better yet, look for a label for the washing and drying process. Attention to these details on the part of the roaster is essential for a really good cup. Even if you’re buying a blend that often doesn’t have much source information, a good roaster will give some clues as to where the component coffees come from.

5. Notes from the delivery note This will at least tell you that the roaster has tried the coffee. If there are known as “pipe tobacco” or “tar”, you might be looking for a nice way to say “let’s make shit from our poor grains or first buy mud beans.” This is not always the case; sometimes the coffee is bold and earthy and not bad.

What to avoid:

1.100% coffee You hope so. It’s a way of saying “we don’t know what’s here”

2. Solid-In most cases, bragging about being robust assumes ignorance on your part.

3. 100% ANDrabika- It is much more common. It is true that all the best coffees in the world come from this trouser leg, so to speak, from broken types of coffees. ANDle nie wszystkie rodzaje arabiki są jednakowo tworzone. Instead, you should look for a mention of the variety. Not all coffees will have this, but if they do, you’re more likely to get a better cup. The variety itself does not guarantee quality, but an attention to detail like variety represents the level of attention needed for a good seed.

4. ANDtichettatura senza senso- If your coffee is about the “joy of a simple cup” or the “perfect Costa Rican coffee tradition,” it wastes a place to pass you information on what you drink. This is often due to a lack of knowledge on the part of the smoker. Packaging should be informative, not emotional. ANDcco a cosa servono i grani all’interno.

I can’t guarantee that if you follow these tips you will love every coffee you buy, but it sure will be more likely. For health and good hunting.

How to choose coffee

Coffee capsules are an alternative to regular coffee beans or ground coffee. They allow you to quickly prepare an aromatic drink, even for those unfamiliar with the skills of bartenders. The coffee will turn out delicious, rich, with a nice cream: this is what is prepared in coffees. ANDsistono diversi sistemi a capsule popolari sul mercato, la scelta dipende dalle preferenze personali e dalle funzioni delle macchine per caffè espresso adattate a una marca specifica.

How to choose coffee

This is due to the fact that all major brands personalize the capsules, making them compatible only with coffee machines of a certain brand. Understanding the differences, operating principles, brand pricing policies and other features will allow you to choose the best capsules for making high-quality coffee.

What are capsules for coffee machines

The capsule is the main component of the system for all capsule models. In general, the technology behind every espresso machine works to unlock the potential of the manufacturer’s brewed ground coffee container and create the perfect drink. Despite the visual similarity, the containers differ significantly from each other.

How to choose coffee

All types of capsules for coffee machines are divided into categories according to the following criteria:

Manufacturer and compatibility with specific coffee machines;

Type of material (mainly aluminum foil or eco-plastic combined);

Type of drink; frequency of dispensing (all leading brands produce disposable containers for their coffee machines).

Compatibility of the capsules with coffee machines of different brands

The compatibility list will help you determine which types of capsules are suitable for each brand of coffee machines (taking into account manufacturers of universal and reusable containers):

How to choose coffee

Nespresso – Nespresso, Delonghi, Lattissima, Krups, Miele, Kitchenaid, Inissi.

Dolce Gusto – Krups, Dolce Gusto, Piccolo, MiniMe, Portlo.

Reusable capsules

One of the main disadvantages of capsule coffee machines is the limited choice of drinks. Reusable capsules partially fix it, although the official containers are not supported by coffee machine manufacturers.

It should be understood that this savings option is not always suitable. The manufacturer takes into account everything from the pressure of the vapor passing through the container to the piercing mechanism. Third-party manufacturers very often produce a reusable imitation that can be filled with any grain.

It is generally not recommended to buy empty plastic capsules. Oltre a ANDmohome e Coffeduck, stanno perdendo terreno rispetto ai contenitori di marca. Stainless steel capsules, unlike plastic (25-30 puffs), are designed for multiple use. However, their high price eliminates any attempt to save. When it comes to quality, original products will always take precedence in all evaluation criteria.

The only reason to consider reusable containers is if you want to use your own beans to select and mix blends, but in this case it is better to buy a carob coffee machine, filling and cleaning, which is much simpler and more convenient. .

Where to buy and how to store the capsules

Most manufacturers have been concerned with the convenience of storing capsules. The tanks are sold in special packages that do not take up much space. In addition, some manufacturers produce special media for media. This option makes it easier to sort and use the containers for brewing beer.

How to choose coffee

Gradually, capsules of top brands have ceased to be a deficit and now they can be bought without any problems on MyFriendsCoffee or on the manufacturer’s websites (previously it was the main disadvantage of capsule coffee machines). For example, Nespresso products can be ordered directly from the manufacturer’s website nespresso, the same applies to Dolce Gusto – dolce-gusto. A wide range of capsules is also available in stores.

From crisp, pure white to dark, rich wood tones, the colors, materials and style of a coffee table can make all the difference to your entire living room. Make an informed choice when you’re shopping for a new coffee table and consider how you’ll use your table to best determine the right one for your needs.

Function

Before buying a coffee table, ask yourself what you need. Do you need a coffee table as a desk or dining table? Then the liftable table could be just what you are looking for. If you need a kid-friendly coffee table, avoid sharp corners and look for a table with rounded edges instead. Storage Coffee Tables are the perfect option for those who always need more storage space. Coffee tables with shelves, drawers and flaps are great for storing magazines, blankets, toys and more. How you plan to use your coffee table will help point you in the right direction when it comes to buying your coffee table.

How to choose coffee

Material

When choosing your materials, remember to consider how you will use the table as some materials wear better than others.

  • Natural materials: Natural countertop materials such as wood, stone or marble are a great choice for modern family rooms. Keep in mind that marble and stone tops can be more difficult to maintain and are easily stained by foods or children’s art supplies. Wood surfaces instantly warm up a room, but are also prone to scratches and damage from moisture and heat, so always use a tampon to hold hot or cold drinks.
  • Materialy wytworzone przez człowieka: Metal, glass, rattan / wicker and acrylic represent the different types of man-made materials that can be used in coffee table tops. Look for specific finishes such as hydrophobic coatings to help clean the surface.

Form

Often the coffee table’s location in the room determines the shape of the table you need. In a room with large square sofas, a rectangular or square coffee table should be in the center of the existing cabinet. More exotic shapes, such as triangles, fit best in small spaces or oddly shaped furniture arrangements. The classic oval and round shapes can find a place in any room, but the round tables go well with the wedges.

How to choose coffee

Style

The coffee table should complement the surrounding furniture, not compete with it. Try to find a coffee table in a style that’s consistent with the rest of the room but that doesn’t necessarily mean it needs to match the rest of the tables in the room.

Manual or electric? Milling cutter or blade? ANDcco cosa viene preparato sulla parte anteriore del macinacaffè.

Maybe you’ve gone from the single-serving capsule coffee machine to the French press. AND może opanowałeś do perfekcji sztukę spieniania cappuccino. Regardless of your coffee drinking habit, one thing is certain: your daily cup of Joe tastes best when made with freshly roasted coffee beans that you grind just before brewing.

Daily grinding

Once you’re done with your coffee, it’s time to grind. Grinder options range from simple to very imaginative, but whatever you do, choose a grinder instead of a blade grinder, advises Chi Sum Ngai. Ngai wie, o czym mówi: posiada uprawnienia CQI (Coffee Quality Institute) ANDrabica Q Grader do oceniania i oceniania kaw, a także ona i jej partnerka, Kaleena Teoh, są właścicielami Coffee Project NY, trzymiejscowego baru zorientowanego na baristę – i klasowy strój, w tym rozległa hybrydowa kawiarnia, palarnia kawy i jedyny kampus szkoleniowy Specialty Coffee ANDssociation (SCAND) w Nowym Jorku w Queens w stanie Nowy Jork.

So why a timber instead of a blade? It all comes down to the grind, texture, and flavorful results. Barbed cone grinders have a cone-shaped center and an external serrated burr, while their louder cohorts, the flat grinders, have a finer grind that is useful for espresso and grind the beans between two round grinders. Cheap and easy-to-use blade mills have a single blade, like a blender, and grind the beans in no time, but the grind is usually uneven and the coffee can have a bitter aftertaste. (Pulse is always a good way to use a blade grinder to avoid reheating the beans.)

Perfect fit

AND c’è altro da considerare, come la tua bevanda al caffè preferita. Espresso requires a very fine grind, eliminating for example a Chemex, Hario V60 or Kalita coffee machine, a moderate grind. AND jeśli lubisz parzyć kawę we francuskiej prasie? Then you will need a coarser grind. “Choose a brewing device and fit it with a grinder that meets the grind size required by the brewer,” says Ngai.

Price and ease of use are other considerations. “Some may opt for a manual grinder for the cost, but often find that morning manual labor over a cup of coffee isn’t worth the time,” says Ngai. “Investing a little more in the electric meat grinder will pay for itself. Choose a coffee grinder that can grind the right size and you’ll be well on your way to delicious coffee at home. “

Grinders to consider

Coffee Project NY has three grinders designed for homebrewers with different needs. Mini ceramic mill Hario Slim Plus ($ 34.01, amazon. com) it is portable and can be used without electricity. Hi, a camping trip is essential. Even though it grinds different grind sizes, consistency isn’t its strong point. “When you’re out and about, it’s still a pretty decent grinder. Anche economico!” dice Ngai. Macinacaffè conico ANDncore ($ 153, coffee project)has 40 grind settings, but is best suited for french press, drip coffee and espresso, and is worth the investment, the Baratza Virtuoso manual ($ 278, coffee project)ha campanelli e fischietti come la luce a LANDD, un timer digitale per un dosaggio costante (macinando la giusta quantità di caffè) e 40 impostazioni di macinatura, sebbene sia ottimale per french press, drip coffee e decantazione.

If you really want to go crazy, Ngai suggests researching the coffee grinders used by coffee professionals, including the Baratza Forté BG (coffee grinder)($ 919, amazon. com),Ode by Fellow Products($ 299 for pre-order, friendproducts. com)with optimized milling speeds and a Niche Zero grinder ($ 652 pre-order, Indiegogo. com)which offers a quiet and finely ground coffee.

More tips for coffee success

Ngai has some other secrets to grinding perfect coffee at home: clean the grinder, grind some of the same coffee beans before grinding the coffee you are making right now. AND non dimenticare di pulire il macinacaffè!
