THE PACAMARA VARIETAL COFFEE CHERRIES

Opposites attract…

The Pacamara coffee varietal resulted from the crossing of two varieties. Which are quite different from each other:  the Pacas and Maragogype varietals. It’s name combines the first four letters of each parent varietal. The Salvadoran Institute for Coffee Research (ISIC) created this relatively new coffee varietal in 1958, after approximately 30 years of scientific research. During the late 1980’s, it had been released to coffee producents. Continue reading THE PACAMARA VARIETAL COFFEE CHERRIES

BEAING A HOME BARISTA

“Some pursue happiness – others create it.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson (American essayist, 1803 -1882)

Home Barista

I met an old friend of mine the other day. We spoke about life and traveling. After a while, he said: “Marek, you know a lot about coffee. I’m sure you have a secret recipe for preparing excellent coffee at home. I would be happy, if you would share it with me.”

People sometimes ask me this question or similar ones. They start to investigate and try to find “my secret recipe.” But I do not have my secret recipe or treasure. In fact, many people are searching for a myth similar to El Dorado, the mysterious lost City of Gold. Continue reading BEAING A HOME BARISTA

THE VARIOUSE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HONEY PROCESSES

Colour Your World!

Coffee can be processed from the cherry to the green beans that are going to be roasted via a ‘Honey’ Processing Method.

In doing so, only the skin and the pulp of the coffee cherry are removed. The coffee beans (seeds) are dried within the remaining honey-like, sugary, mucilage layer – the gluey substance, underneath the pulp of the cherry, covering the two coffee seeds. Continue reading THE VARIOUSE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HONEY PROCESSES

COFFEE PAPER FILTERS

COFFEE FILTERS

Coffee filters were invented in the early 1900s by Melitta Benz, a housewife from Dresden, Germany with a big passion for coffee. She was brewing coffees daily and was not happy with the fact that too many coffee grounds were getting into her final cup. To solve this problem, she linked two things together in a way they have never been linked before: Coffee and paper. Her simple, but revolutionary idea was to use paper to filter out the coffee grounds. Benz punctured the bottom of a brass pot with a hammer and nails and lined it up with a thick and porous sheet of blotting paper that she took from the school-notebook of her son.   Continue reading COFFEE PAPER FILTERS

SHOULD WE DRINK WATER BEFORE, OR AFTER COFFEE?

Question: Should we drink water before or after coffee?

Answer:

It’s recommended to drink 2 glasses of water before drinking 1 cup of coffee. That way, we can enjoy the aftertaste of coffee longer. If we drink the water right after the coffee, Baristas could think that we didn’t like the coffee and that we need to flush our mouth. But let’s not worry about others, let’s take care about ourselves. Let’s drink plenty of water with coffee – the best would be before. Continue reading SHOULD WE DRINK WATER BEFORE, OR AFTER COFFEE?
