An expert guide to making cafe-quality coffee at home | Your money


MELBOURNE, Australia, Sept. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to leading coffee equipment suppliers Espresso Company, to brew a delicious cup of coffee at home, there are certain variables an individual will need to master. From the ratio of coffee to water and brewing time to water temperature and grind size of the coffee beans, all of these factors combined will help create the perfect cup. Besides experimenting with them, selecting the best home coffee machine will affect the end result.

Espresso Company explains that while there are standard recommendations for each of the variables, coffee brewing ultimately comes down to personal taste. For those who aren’t sure what type of coffee they like, Espresso Company says the best thing to do is do a tasting. Subscription services provide the opportunity to sample various roasts.

Fresh coffee contains CO2 gas, a key factor when creating a good bubbly crema on an espresso. The longer the beans are exposed to oxygen, the more of this gas is released, resulting in a flat and disappointing espresso. A grinder with quality burrs is essential here, as a poor quality grinder will produce a grind that is not uniform, with larger particles brewing more slowly than smaller ones. The more uniform the grind, the cleaner and brighter your coffee will taste, says Espresso Company.

Temperature control allows you to extract more or less from different roast profiles. Lighter roast coffees are best brewed at a higher temperature, while darker roasts benefit from a lower temperature. Being able to control this allows the barista to get the most out of a wider range of beans, explains Espresso Company.

Coffee, just like other food products, needs a recipe to produce consistently good results. The heart of this recipe is the infusion ratio. Measuring the amount of coffee to the amount of water helps ensure that the brew is not too thin or too strong to appreciate the flavors. Espresso Company says this is something novice brewers often get wrong, making grind adjustments and perfecting the recipe that much more difficult.

Providing the best coffee machines across Australia, Espresso Company stocks major brands including Rocket Espresso, VBM and Morning. To learn more about making café-quality coffee at home and for help choosing the right equipment, contact the Espresso Company.
