Brewing

BAR

Espresso coffee is known around the world. It was created in Italy at the end of the 1800s following the invention of the machine for its production. Its name refers to the speed of preparation and to something “made on the spot, especially for you”.

With this technique, coffee best expresses its organoleptic characteristics, which are expressed in the cup by the cream, aroma, body and after-taste.

The quality of the blend, perfect grinding, the machine function, and the ability of the person using the machine are all of utmost importance.

For this reason, we have published a short brochure called “The Perfect Coffee Manual”.

 

 

MOKA

Also called a coffee maker, it is the most common tool used for brewing coffee in Italian homes. Invented in 1930 by the genius of Bialetti, who made it an Italian symbol, famous around the world, on display in all the best museums of design.

Recommendations for preparation. Fill the bottom boiler with water up to the level of the small valve on the outside. Water is the liquid ingredient in coffee and its quality is very important. If the water is too hard, it is best to use bottled still mineral water. Use about 7 g of coffee powder per cup. Place it, but do not press it, in the filter. The rule is that you use a low flame so that it percolates slowly. In order not to burn the first part of the coffee, you can add a small amount of water to the bottom of the pot.

Preparation of a Moka is a rite to start the day. The perfume and bubbling of the coffee as it comes out belong to the most intimate everyday life of Italians.

Good maintenance of the Moka is of utmost importance. Always use the same one. Wash it with hot water without soap and replace the gasket when it turns dark.

AMERICANA

This is the most popular brewing system in the world which makes “caffe lungo”, to be sipped.  It is made using a small machine that filters boiling water through ground coffee. This type of brewing is also called percolation and flows into a glass pot. It is very pleasant to drink this coffee, especially when you want to extend the pleasure of sipping it for a long time. Our blends, with intense after-tastes from a variety or origins, are also highly suitable for this type of drinking.

“Caffè Americano” is what came to be during the second world war when the American soldiers began to dilute their espresso with hot water in order to prepare a less concentrated drink. Today, this coffee is still served in a large gup with a small pot of hot water, on the side, to use to dilute it as desired.

 

 

TURKISH

Also called “Greek” or “Arab”, this type of brewing is very popular in Turkey and Arab countries. The ground coffee is set in a special pot called “ibrik”, usually made from brass. It is filled with water and some sugar. At times spices like cardamon or cinnamon are added.

The mixture is boiled until foam forms on the surface. It is removed from the flame and some of the cream is put in each of the cups. It is boiled two more times before being poured.

Prepared in this way, the coffee becomes “syrupy” and requires a few minutes to settle before drinking. The sediment takes on original shapes, and the coffee grounds are read according to the Turkish tradition of Tasseography.
