When it comes to great coffee, it’s so much more about the experience than simply the flavour of the hot beverage you serve up (though of course, that counts too!). Here are some top tips to help you create a memorable coffee experience that will have your guests coming back time and again.
If you’re a coffee lover, you’re probably always on the lookout for the perfect cup (and hence the perfect bean). But, before it hits the packet and your grinder, do you know where coffee actually comes from?
At Science of Coffee, we are champions of Direct Trade. But what does that mean and why do we care?
Direct Trade occurs when coffee roasters buy (most often single origin coffee) directly from coffee farmers. The roaster pays the farmer for their coffee beans, establishing a direct relationship with them. This cuts out middle men, as well as regulatory organisations, with the aim of delivering a great product while respecting the farmers’ livelihood.
