How to make a proper cup of coffee

Espresso, or filtered coffee? Thankfully, this contest has no clear winner. Everyone likes and wants something different. There are large differences in caffeine content, volume, or the amount of time it takes. It therefore depends on what you expect from your cup of coffee. Luckily, our coffees will never leave you in the dark about how to make a proper cup. The package will always inform you whether the beans have been roasted to be more suitable for filtered coffee or espresso.

Many people ask us about the general differences between filtered coffee and espresso. Generally speaking, extraction of caffeine takes time, so filtered coffee will also contain more of it.

On the other hand, a proper double espresso can give you the same “kick”, and you don’t have to spend half the day drinking it. The main difference is obvious: coffee that passes through a metal filter under at least 9 bars of pressure will create a thick crema in the cup (micro-droplets of oil in an aqueous solution of sugars, acids, protein-like substances, and caffeine). The taste will certainly be more intense, with more body. On the other hand, filtered coffee depends on gravity, where water is slowly poured over the grounds and percolates down through a paper filter. The result is a black liquid with beautiful aroma and full of gradually developing, delicious overtones.
