How to impress a visitor with delicious ground coffee

Coffee to Impress

There is no excuse. Do not serve awful tasting coffee.

Doesn’t matter where you are in the home or office there is no excuse serving bad coffee to your friends/coffee/colleagues (unless you don’t like them 🤔)

So how do you impress someone?

You have 7 seconds.

Welcome them to your company & then ask them if they would like a cup of coffee. Easy.

Not sure what type to buy?

I’m going to generalise massively here (no doubt be beaten by the coffee officials) but a roaster once told me to chose a South American coffee for your first taste, they are usually non-bitter and smoother than the coffee which originates from African/India.

 

 

Not sure what strength to buy?

When the packet says “Strength” – this can be a bit misleading but they are trying to tell you how dark the roast will be and how intense the bitterness.

A shorter roast can emphasize fruity, acidic aromas and a longer roast can bring out darker, more toasted notes.

If you are new to coffee then go for a 2 or 3 strength. 

1 Light roast

2 Medium roast

3 Medium to dark roast

4 Dark roast

5 Very dark roast

To Decaf or not to Decaf?

It’s always best to offer both.

Just a point of interest when it says Decaf it isn’t 100% Caffeine free – no Decaf coffee is.

 

Do you buy beans or ground coffee?

Go for coffee which is already ground. Grinding your own will ensure a fresher taste but it’s not always practical. Buy the smallest bag possible until you find out which one is the most popular.

It could be fun – you never know who you could meet over a Colombian Excelso.

Put up a whiteboard and chart peoples reactions.

Invest in a Cafetiere

They are not expensive – most supermarkets sell them. They will give you the perfect start to coffee making.

Follow the instructions …it’s usually 1 tablespoon of coffee per person & brew for 3-4 minutes. Again it’s trial and error but don’t over brew or it will affect the flavour.

To change the strength of your coffee, adjust the ‘dose’ by increasing or lowering the amount of coffee you use.

Serve it black & give them the option of fresh milk or packet of UHT creamer.

How to store your Coffee

Coffee will lose its freshness when it is exposed to light, heat, moisture, & oxygen. Keep beans and grounds an airtight container in a cool, dark place.

Coffee doesn’t need to be complicated but there are mind-blowing coffee varieties out there but it is fun trying to find the ones you like. Don’t try and do it all in one day or you’ll not sleep.😲

Give your customers superb coffee – try  Crazy Cat’s – It’s non-bitter,  creamy & delicious, we even sell a decaf  & don’t forget the Coffee cups..buy some nice ones!

Yep we get it we’re all different – it’s like eating Brussel Sprouts, as a kid I would have rather chewed my left leg off than eat a brussel.

Happily, the maligned brussel has had the bitterness bred out of it but we don’t or need to do that with coffee and here’s why.

Coffee Ice Cubes – How to make them.

Coffee Ice Cube Recipe

You wouldn’t believe it but making Coffee Ice Cubes could get complicated 🤪 It’s a bit trial and error before you find the right coffee, the right amount of coffee to water ratio.

If you don’t want to be wired all day then choose a regular ground coffee, brew it overnight.   If you do want to be wired all day then go for an Espresso roast.😵

Crazy Cat ground coffee direct to your door.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz coffee (480 mils)  brewed regular strength
  • Recommended coffee: Crazy Cat 3 Bean Blend it’s a Medium strength and is delicious! or if you’re sensitive to Caffeine but want the coffee flavour then use our Crazy Cat Decaf Coffee just use more coffee & less water (steep overnight)

Equipment

  • Cafetire or Coffee Machine
  • 1 Ice cube tray
Directions
  • Brew regular coffee and let it steep for a few hours or overnight – like I said depending on how strong you like your coffee, let it cool to room temperature.
  • Pour evenly into an ice cube tray, then place into freezer. Once frozen, you can use coffee cubes for up to two weeks.
You see it’s that easy – have a go and experiment.

How to Cold Brew coffee

How to Cold Brew Coffee

How to Cold-Brew coffee at home

Cold brew is simple and easy to make but you have to be patient because it takes time to “Brew” and bring out the taste you are looking for. So if possible make it in advance, you can store it in the fridge for a day or 2.

Cold Brew coffee

  • For starters, you need a coarse ground, same consistency as breadcrumbs. Any finer and you risk cloudy, grimy-tasting coffee.
  • Sterilise a large mason/Kilner jar (or any large receptacle with a lid). Working to roughly a 1:8 coffee-to-water ratio, place your grounds in the bottom of the jar and cover with cold water.
  • Stir gently until combined and leave to steep for 18-24 hours, either in or out of the fridge.
  • After 24hrs strain using a sieve (or muslin cloth) to remove the larger grounds. Compost the discarded grounds, and then using a cleaned sieve, strain back into the jar.
  • Repeat two or three times, until you are seeing no murky residue at the bottom as you finish your pour. If you cannot seem to sift it all out, don’t worry – it simply means your grind was too fine. Practice makes perfect with these things.
  • Serve over ice, with milk and sugar. Cover and refrigerate the rest –  if stored properly it will stay good for a month or so due to the brew’s low acidity

Tip for the perfect homebrew ☕

  1. Adjust the concentration of your cold brew coffee, making it stronger or less strong to suit your taste. Start with a ratio of 1:8 but reduce the water for a stronger cup.
  2. Use filtered water, if possible. This is just good coffee advice in general & your cup of coffee will have a cleaner, sweeter flavor if you do.
  3. Steep min 12 hours. The coffee needs this full time to fully infuse the water but too long and the coffee will start to extract their bitter flavours.
  4.  Chill your cold brew with coffee ice cube but if want a totally undiluted coffee experience? Make coffee ice cubes to chill your iced coffee!
  5. Enjoy – especially when we have some sunshine 🙄
