How to make perfect coffee
How to cook the perfect coffee?
From what does the coffee taste?
First of all, you need to choose a coffee grinding. It allows the grains to fully expand and release their flavor during cooking coffee. The finer the grind, the stronger,
and therefore tastier and more aromatic drink. It can be concluded that better coffee grind almost to dust, but, alas, then it will not brew espresso machines, here technology is such that the finer the powder, the harder the water goes through it.
If You love coffee in the Eastern, more suited to fine grinding. Hence the tradition of the Turks, Greeks, Armenians and Arabs to grind the coffee as flour. Grinding suitable for larger so-called Neapolitan rotating machines. Coffee medium grind suitable for different methods of welding. Coffee coarse grind is more suitable for brewing in a French press. By the way, do not forget that the quality of ground coffee deteriorates very quickly, so it’s best to grind as much coffee as you need at once.
Next, you should pay attention to the degree of roasting coffee. Roasting coffee – one of the most important steps in making coffee is unmatched in the drink. In the process of roasting under the influence of high temperature (200° – 230°) coffee beans change color, increase by 40-50% in volume, at the same time losing due to moisture 15-20% of its mass. From the same beans in the frying process can be obtained completely different coffee taste.
There are several variants of roasting coffee beans:
“Viennese roast” – the average degree of roast. Distinguished by a dark color of the grain (chocolate brown) and a more active selection of essential oils that infuses luxury coffee flavors. Taste – rich and slightly sweet. To drink a coffee at any time of the day!
«French roast” – a strong degree of roast. Grains turn dark brown and begin to Shine from abundant oils. When making turns dark drink with a distinct bitterness.
“Italian roast” is the dark roast. Grain colour dark brown, passing into blackish-brown, the grain surface is slightly oily. The taste is very expressive, with bitterness, nice. This drink coffee black, with cream, over lunch or in the afternoon.
Each coffee has its own level of roasting, which completely reveals the fullness of its taste. The scale ranges from 1 to 5. For example, Paulig Classic has an average level – 3. With increasing degree of roasting increases the bitter taste palette component and decreases the acid. Scale roasting Paulig from 1 (light) to 5 (very dark) are indicated on each package. Find coffee with the level of roast that is right for You.
