The What, How And Why Of Freshly Roasted Coffee Beans
Coffee, java, joe, or whatever other slang it might be called, is arguably one of the most popular energy drink and/or breakfast beverage in the world. The secret to the best tasting coffee is simple, it has to be freshly roasted, ground correctly, prepared immediately, and drank while hot, around 180 degrees Fahrenheit. The goal of this article is simple; discuss the basics of fresh roasted coffee.
The small brown things that most call beans are not exactly beans. The same is actually the pit. For purposes of this article, the word beans will be used for convenience. There are different varieties of coffee. However, the two most popular and profitable are Arabica and Robusta – the former accounts to as much as 80% of the total crop and the latter as much as 20%.
As a general rule, the darker the roast, the bolder the taste.. Of course, the ratio and type of “beans” used also account for the taste. Roasting coffee is relatively straightforward. The same is placed in a heated plate or any roasting apparatus, usually made of steel and regularly mixed in order to cook evenly.
The best grind is a combination of at least two very important factors. The first step is to obtain the freshest roast, preferably one that has just been roasted the same day. Tip: if your espresso maker is producing very little or no crema then you resolve this problem by fresh roasted coffee a.k.a. beans that has been roasted the very same day. It not only makes for better coffee but a lot more crema.
The second step is to use a good quality grinder. This means a burr grinder. This is because the less expensive type that looks like a small stainless blender tends to grind the coffee inconsistently. Place your burr grinder to the proper setting (extra course, coarse, medium course, medium fine, fine, extra fine. As a general rule you use the fine grinds for percolators and drip coffee makers. You use medium grinds with a french press and course grind for espresso makers. For cold brewing extra course is recommended.
Basic Types of Coffee
Generally speaking there is at least 4 popular types; instant, brewed, pressed, and espresso. They are mentioned in the order of increase brewing difficulty. Instant coffee is convenient but tends to have the most acidic taste and bitterest after taste. Brewed coffee, depending on your brewer tends to taste better but is a watered down version. Pressed coffee has a bolder taste but does not have the thickness and crema associated with espresso coffee. Espresso is the pinnacle of success and tastes the strongest.
Why Do You Need to Know All This?
The answer is simple: in order to make the best cup of coffee possible. Now, some of you may not think it is worth the extra effort. But most coffee drinkers who have tasted the difference tend to want to step up their equipment and knowledge. This is because the best cup of java is made from fresh roasted coffee and results in a strong, bold, not overly acidic brew.
