THE ENERGY OF COFFEE

Energy in coffee – four small articles

Smell, Taste, Enjoy or what is true coffee passion.

Every coffee-lover should have at least three coffee monkeys inside themselves. Each monkey has a different task. One focuses on tasting flavours. Another one explores the aromas with his/her nose. And one more monkey feels the body of the coffee.

All monkeys have to work together as a team with joy. People with a true passion for coffee take care of the monkeys inside of them. Otherwise, they would only consume coffee without enjoying it.

COFFEE BREWING METHODS

Two main coffee brewing methods

INFUSION METHODS:

It can be any method, where the water consistently flows through ground coffee from the filter to the cup. The exit holes of the coffee-maker are open and not blocked. Pre-infusion gives you control over clarity and extraction of the coffee brewing process.

MISTAKES AND SOLUTIONS AT FILTER COFFEE

Possible sensory characteristics of the final coffee drink

  • CORRECT: sweetness, complex acidity/fruit tones, sweet & ripe, full body, long ending
  • UNDER-EXTRACTED: Sourness, saltiness, grassy, quick finish, lacking sweet, straw feeling
  • OVER-EXTRACTED: bitter, sharp, dry, saltiness
  • FLAT FLAVOURS: Usually the problem is not only created during the brewing process (for example by not choosing a suitable preparation method), but often times it’s caused by low quality coffee beans as well.

COFFEE IS N’T COMPETETION

Life is not a competition. Living a fulfilled and meaningful life is about cooperation and compassion.

Specialty Coffee Championships

I like the idea of ‘Specialty Coffee Festivals’ that celebrate the idea of unity and diversity. It does not matter, who is ‘the best’ farmer, ‘the best’ roaster or ‘the best’ barista because ‘the best’’ does not exist. We are all different from each other, but not superior or inferior to others. Compared to all the aspects that differentiate us from each other, there are so many more things that we have in common. Let’s not compare ourselves with ‘others’, but let’s work together and be inspired every day!

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN WATER AND COFFEE ☕

Knowing what difference water can make

About 98 percent of your cup of coffee is water. Knowing and taking into account the quality and characteristic of water is a crucial part in the art of coffee-brewing. Different locations around the world have different kinds of water. The mineral balance and added substances of the water differ from location to location.

Not only will the water taste differently, but it will also have a different effect on the grinded coffee beans during the brewing process. Minerals extract the flavor compounds from the beans. It is important that coffee-lovers are aware of the mineral content in the water they are using when brewing their coffees. Beans from a specific roastery will taste different in different locations around the world, just because of the different kind of waters that are around.

HEIRLOOM ARABICA – ETHIPIAN COFFEES

Heirloom’ coffees  – Enjoy delicious historic flavors

When trying to capture the essence of Ethiopian coffees, Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea, a Chicago based US coffee roasting company, cites the American dancer, Isadora Duncan (1877-1927):

“No, I can’t explain the dance to you. If I could tell you what it meant, there would be no point in dancing it.”
