Unlike what many people think, making the perfect cup of coffee is not as easy as it looks (although watching it from YouTube seems like a breeze). Just because you have a very expensive espresso machine doesn’t mean it will do the trick. Many factors affect the taste and aroma of your chosen concoction, and when mixed in perfect harmony, you know you hit the jackpot!
Check the Coffee’s Roast Date
Coffee experts say that the right roast date is extremely important. It takes about nine to eleven days after roasting when you can really appreciate the taste. The capao, which is a Brazilian single-origin dark-roasted bean, is the general component of a standard espresso. The darker roasts are more complex which comes in caramel and chocolate flavors, while the lighter roasts are fruitier and more floral. To come up with the ideal recipe, you need to set the right water temperature, dry coffee dose, espresso amount, time allotment for your espresso machine to do the shot, and the consistency of your ground coffee. A small set of digital scales is recommended, plus a timer for you to record the recipe.
