Means 'restricted' in Italian, and is a more concentrated version of an espresso. That means less water, with the same amount of coffee. This creates a rich, aromatic brew, perfect for a pick-me-up in the morning or afternoon.
Is a short, black coffee, either enjoyed by itself or used as a foundation for milk-based creations like cappuccino or latte. A classic morning or after-meal coffee.
Means 'long' in Italian, because it's made with the same amount of coffee as an espresso but twice the amount of water. This creates a profile similar to filter coffee, but with a more intense taste, as well as a larger cup of coffee.
What is ground coffee?
Ground coffee is made from coffee beans that are roasted, ground and then packed. The ground coffee is then brewed in one of three ways:
The filter coffee maker allows you to prepare a large amount of coffee quickly. The water passes slowly through the coffee in the filter, as the molecules infuse with the water. This produces coffee with an aromatic and slightly bitter taste.
The Italian cafetiere/percolator/Moka pot forces boiling water and steam through compressed coffee that is loaded into a funnel shaped filter basket between the water reservoir on the bottom and the coffee reservoir on the top of the pot. The coffee that is produced is full-bodied and aromatic.
The French Press is quick and easy to use. Ground coffee is put into the cafetière, then simmering water is gently poured over it. The coffee should brew for between 30 seconds and 2 minutes, depending on the strength you prefer. Once it has brewed, the plunger is pressed down so the grounds are separated from the coffee. This method satisfies the most discerning coffee connoisseurs.
Which to choose? This depends on how fine the coffee beans. have been ground. The finer the grind, the shorter the brewing time can be, to ensure flavours and aromas are released from the coffee.
What is instant coffee?
Instant coffee is made from dried coffee extract. It's quick to prepare with just hot water. Put one to two teaspoons of instant coffee into a cup, top up with hot water, stir and enjoy.
The quality of the blend makes the difference in brewing and, although instant coffee has a different flavour than coffee made from freshly ground beans, there can still be layers of flavour and aroma if it's made with a quality blend.
Instant coffee is also convenient as it lasts longer than ground coffee.
How are coffee beans ground?
Coffee beans are generally freshly ground in an automatic machine. Pressurised water is then forced through the ground coffee and produces an intense espresso coffee, creamy and full-bodied. This process produces the smooth, rich aromas of the best coffees, a sure indication of excellent quality. Coffee beans can also be ground in a separate mill and used in different types of coffee makers.
