Preparation for Perfection
In your hands is some delicious specialty coffee: now what? Follow these few simple steps to juice the most flavour from them and craft the coffee you’ll love.
- Keep it fresh: buy just as much coffee as you’ll brew up for a couple of weeks to make sure you’re starting with fresh produce. Keep airtight and store in a cool, dark spot.
- Grind it fresh: coffee stales rapidly once it’s ground so make sure you grind just what you’ll brew, right before you pop it through your espresso machine.
- Follow a recipe: a key to excellent espresso is achieving a good ratio between the amount of coffee you use to the volume of water you put through it, and how long that process takes. A good starting point is below.
- Milk magic: Always use fresh milk or alternatives and, to achieve a silky micro-foam, very slowly lower the jug as you steam to inject the smallest amount of air. Once finished steaming, always swirl the jug to incorporate the foamy top with the milk underneath before you pour.
The All Aboard blend is crafted to be a flavoursome, rich coffee, perfect for pairing with milk. Start with this recipe and you’ll be achieving deliciousness in no time.
