Your coffee friend to help you choose

Many of us neither want nor can imagine our morning without fresh, tasty and aromatic coffee. From it we get the necessary dose of energy to wake up the mind and body, but what is really good coffee and how to find the one you like best? Everyone will probably answer this question differently, because a lot is undoubtedly determined by the power of habit - what kind of coffee we are used to everyday, so coffee experts do not give one specific answer, but offer several options, from which everyone can choose their favorite to enjoy really great. quality coffee to your taste. The following is a simple description of the main factors influencing the taste of coffee.

Coffee roasting.
• Light roast - light brown beans with a delicate, fruity taste and aroma.
• Medium toast - allows you to better feel the nuances of taste and aroma typical of the bean variety
• Dark toast - for exhilarating bitterness.
• Espresso toast - very dark, acts as an energy boost when fatigue threatens to prevail.

Grades of coffee grinding.
How finely or coarsely grind the coffee depends on the intended type of coffee brewing. If the contact of the coffee with water during the brewing process (extraction time) is very short (eg when making espresso), the coffee beans must be ground finely, but if the contact with the water is longer, for example using the in-cup method or the French press, the grind must be coarser. If the grind is too fine, the coffee will have a bitter bitterness, while if the grind is too coarse, then the coffee will not be able to give up the full potential of the taste and will not be able to taste its finer nuances of taste. When choosing a grind, we invite you to experiment to experience these differences, to find the most suitable grind for a particular coffee.

Important ! It should be remembered that ground coffee after opening:
• Store in a tightly closed container.
• should be used within 2 weeks to avoid loss of aroma.
