Do you know how to make a great cup of coffee using a French Press?

The French Press is in fact Italian in origin and was first patented in 1929 by Attilio Calimani?

Here are some tips for when you next use yours.

๐—›๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐˜ ๐—ฐ๐˜‚๐—ฝ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ฎ ๐—™๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€

1. Always start with ๐—ณ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ต ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜€. Yup, make sure your beans are fresh and we always like to encourage you to buy from local roasters. So buy from us, we stock coffee from local roasters :)

2. Always ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฑ your coffee beans right ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฏ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜„. Also did you know that is a better grind to have?

To get the right grind aim for the texture to be like course ground salt or even bread crumbs. Avoid a fine ground.

3. ๐—ช๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ! Start with 1tbsp to about 120ml - this gives a good baseline for coffee to water ratio. Once you've got that right you can adjust to personal taste.

Don't used distilled or reverse osmosis water, you need good water to get the flavour right.

4. ๐—ช๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ. Get your water the right temperature right. You want your water to be around 85oC, not boiling!
If you don't have a thermometer, leave freshly boiled water for 1 - 2 mins it should be about the right temperature.

If you're serious about your coffee, you will want to invest in a thermometer.

5. ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—™๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—บ๐˜‚๐—ด ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฏ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜„๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด. This will keep your coffee hotter for longer.

6. ๐—•๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜„ ๐—ง๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ. This depends on whether you like a fuller bodied coffee or something lighter.

Brew for 4mins, no more than 5mins and no less than 3mins.
You want less bitterness? Lower your brew time to 3min.

7. ๐——๐—ผ๐—ป'๐˜ ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฟ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ in the French press, just let it sit for the brew time.

8. Push the plunger down ๐˜€๐—น๐—ผ๐˜„๐—น๐˜†.

A good cup of coffee from a French press should take 5-8mins to make and absolutely worth it.

We're putting the spotlight on our local roasters, as we are proud to support local and love the South African coffee scene.

Today we want to share Caloroso Roaster & Eatery .

Caloroso pioneered speciality coffee in the Garden Route and lays claim to being the first dedicated espresso bar in George. 2020 they celebrated 12 years of standard defining coffee and continue to maintain its unique personality and exceptional reputation.

Coloroso are also proud to do the roasting for Life Community Services in George. Life Community is a non-profit organisation that has been impacting the lives of children in poor communities in George for almost two decades.

Pop in store to buy some of their beans and experience the flavour and richness of locally roasted coffee.

Celebrate local with us!

What makes a good coffee?

Much like you can taste a good wine or a good whisky - you can taste a good coffee.

There are 6 main component in coffee taste:

Flavour: This is an overall evaluation of the coffee. There is a coffee flavour wheel (we'll share that another day)

Acidity: Yes! Coffee has acidity and can be measured on a scale of 0-9 with a score of 6-7 being considered highly acidic.
What affects acidity in the coffee? Attitude at which the coffee is grown, wet processed coffees and the roast.

Aroma: Could be considered the most important attribute to specialty coffee. This is influenced by 800+ aromatic components in coffee.

Aftertaste: This is the sensation that is experienced after the coffee is swallowed. It is the lingering remnant of the coffee taste that often changes over time.

Body: The term body describes the physical properties - heaviness, or mouthfeel - of the coffee as it settles on your tongue; the feel of the coffee coating the tongue, and whether it is oily, grainy, watery, or possesses some other characteristic.

Bitterness: Bitterness can balance out the acidity of a coffee but too much bitterness can overpower the other components and the coffee becomes undesirable.

Supporting local is a priority for CoffeeNiqua and so we are proud to stock beans from local roasters.

We have tried and tested all of the coffee we sell and simply love the local coffee scene and talent of our South African roasters.
#localislekker

Now more than ever it is important to realise and support local businesses doing great things.

First on our list of local roasters is Brothers Coffee .

They are an award-winning coffee roastery nestled up against the Outeniqua mountains on a small holding outside the Garden Route town of Great Brak River.

At CoffeeNiqua we aim to service the novice coffee drinker as well as the connoisseur and professional barista. So it gives us great pleasure that a core value of Brothers Coffee is tailoring blends that are versatile enough to meet the various levels of our consumer needs.

Their blends are complex enough for the professional barista and discerning โ€œcoffee snobโ€ yet forgiving enough to suit the casual day to day coffee lover.

Contact us or visit us in store to buy your next bag of beans or to find out what would be best suited to you.
