So choose the best coffee beans for your espresso machine
If you are familiar with our blog before, you are probably aware that there is a big difference between coffee and coffee. However, with today’s large range of coffee, it can be difficult to choose a product that suits you and your employees. In this article, we thought about telling you more about how to choose the best coffee beans for your espresso machine at work.
Espresso machine – get the best out of your coffee
Just as there are many different types of coffee out there, there are also a whole host of different machines. To find the machine that fits your workplace, we recommend you read our Guide to coffee machines, here we guide you through the various machines available on the market.
If the choice of an espresso machine falls, you and your colleagues can expect a very good coffee at work. Today, there are a variety of espresso machines to choose from, all of which put gold on their lives with their good coffee. For example, prepare an intense espresso or fluffy cappuccino that can almost match what is served at your local barista.
A big advantage of espresso machines is that many are equipped with containers and a grinder, which means that you always get a freshly ground coffee. This is also one of the reasons why the end product becomes so good since coffee should preferably be enjoyed immediately after it has been ground.
By comparison, a large portion of the pre-ground coffee is usually ground for several weeks or even months in advance. Something that makes it lose a lot of its complex aromas. By choosing a machine with a grinder you can also check how fine the coffee is.
How to find the best espresso coffee
Although a perfect coffee starts with a perfect machine, much of the secret lies in the coffee itself. As mentioned before, there is a big difference between the alternatives available on the market and of course we want you to enjoy the very best.
First and foremost, we advise you not to limit yourself to the beans found at your local grocery store. There you will probably not find the best coffee beans. Instead, be sure to choose a double-certified coffee, ie. a coffee that is both eco-labeled and fair. This way you can ensure that you get a product that both does good but also tastes good.
In addition to choosing a double-certified coffee, a lot is about the taste itself. Finding a coffee that suits you and your employees’ taste palettes. For example, start by thinking about whether you want light, medium or dark roasted coffee.
In addition, you should also consider if you want some special tones like chocolate, hazelnut, caramel, plum, toffee, pepper or also something healthier such as currant, lime zest or gooseberry.
