Let’s make that Espresso, shall we?

One may argue that making a great Espresso is difficult, but we beg to differ. We strongly maintain that with the combination of right coffee beans, a clean espresso machine and grinder; as well as an even better recipe makes for a great Espresso! Here are our 3 easy Espresso tricks;

  1. Coarse vs Fine Beans- Make sure your beans are not too finely ground as this affects the permeation of water and how well the flavours and aromas can be extracted from the beans. Now, you may ask what the right size of beans is once they are grounded? If your beans are the size of sugar grains- a ground that is somewhere in between, this is how you will get the texture, blend and flavour that’s just right for an espresso.

  1. Use the right beans- Using Arabica beans helps the flavours and aromas ooze out of your espresso brew. This goes back to how these Arabica beans have grown in ideal weather conditions, making for a superior quality! You can visit our website and have a look at our range of Mokarabia beans. Of course, the right dosage is what you also need to remember with this tip!

  1. Perfect Portafilter- Cleanliness is next to Coffee Brewing! So make sure you keep your space and portafilter clean and tidy! Another thing you need to know about how portafilters enhance the taste of your coffee is to use the right size for your machine. This will in turn allow for the grounds to be heated evenly.
