“Brew it the way you like. Drink it the way you like it”
Posted by Hala Tree Coffee on Feb 4th 2023
There are so many ways to brew coffee and even more ways to drink it. Brewing coffee doesn’t have to be a science.
At the end of the day, only YOU know how YOU like it. The perfect cup of coffee is just the way you like it.
Feature of the month: ESPRESSO
Espresso is a coffee-brewing method of Italian origin. Today, it is enjoyed worldwide and has become the base of many favorites such as Americanos, lattes, etc. Espresso is made by forcing very hot water under high pressure through finely ground compacted coffee. The result is a full-flavored, rich cup of strong, dark coffee. It is typically served in a small, demitasse cup, which holds about two to four ounces of liquid.
What makes Espresso different from coffee?
Espresso has a stronger flavor profile because of the lower grounds to water ratio. Coffee grounds are much finer and pressurized water is used to brew the coffee. In other brewing methods, the grounds are more coarse.
How do you make an espresso?
- Grind the coffee (9g for 1 shot and 18g for 2 shots). You want the grinds to be fine.
- Pack the coffee grounds
- If you are using any other method other than a countertop espresso machine make sure to boil your water between 90 - 96 degrees C
- Pull the shot
