Do You Like Coffee?

When did coffee become so popular in China? Without knowing it, I have been addicted to coffee for at least 10 years. If I don’t drink coffee today, I feel that I have missed a big task and feel like I haven’t done anything. Do you feel the same way?

Whether in alleys or on the streets, you can see a variety of coffee shops, they are all unique, and offices downstairs, needless to say, there will be long lines in the morning.

From the early days of the expensive Starbucks to the days of the ubiquitous coffee, it has become an essential part of our lives.

Coffee was a pick-me-up for me in the early days, and in order to cope with class, I remember only coffee with milk and without milk, and I definitely didn’t drink black coffee, along with I got older, my tastes changed, more and more like to drink black coffee.

Lately, I specially studied the knowledge of coffee and learned that there is a lot of fastidious knowledge in coffee. Today, I would like to share with you the knowledge from the books, Littlety is also coming out with a super-handy semi-automatic coffee maker.

We all know that coffee is made from roasted and ground coffee beans.

As one of the world’s three major beverages, with cocoa, tea is popular in the world as the main drink.

Coffee Beans

Three common coffee tree species are Coffea Arabica, Robusta, and Liberika.

The Robusta coffee is rich in flavor, resistant to pests and diseases, and produces a high yield per plant. This kind of coffee is grown at low altitudes, because of its ability to extract rich and stable crema, mostly used in Italian mozzarella beans to make Espresso. Its global output is about 15-20%.

Liberia has a strong caramel flavor, a strong sweetness, and a more obvious dried pineapple flavor. Due to its low yield, high concentration and difficulty to commercialize, it is almost invisible to the market. Its global output is about 1-2%.


Drip coffee

A cooking method invented by the Germans. To put it simply, after grinding the coffee, place it in a funnel and then add a layer of filter paper. Pour hot water over it (ideally between 80 ° C and 85 ° C). First, pour in the hot water and steam for 20 seconds, the hot water is then injected in a circular fashion, and the coffee flows out from under the Earth’s gravity. The amount of coffee is usually 7-10g of powder can make about 120 ml to the cup.

Degree of attrition: coffee appears granulated fine grain

Water-powder ratio: 1:15-18.18(depending on personal taste, bean products, use of the situation)

The siphon pot

One of the most popular coffee brews in local cafes. Principle: under the burning of the alcohol lamp, when the water temperature in the lower container reaches 92 °C, the water flow is sucked into the upper container with coffee powder, through soaking, and stirring, the coffee is made back the same way.

Attrition: slightly coarser than the powder, close to the ultra-fine sugar.

Moka Pot

Moka Pot’s basic principle is to use pressurized hot water to quickly extract liquid coffee from ground coffee. The first Mocha Pot was made in 1933 by Italian Alfonso Bialetti, whose company has long been known for making the coffee pot. Mocha Coffee Makers are popular in Europe.

Moka Pot is divided into two parts, the lower part of the water boils to create steam pressure, the boiling water rises through a filter containing ground coffee, and when the coffee flows to the upper part, the heat is turned down, and coffee will burn if the temperature is too high.

Balancing Syphon

The Vacuum coffee maker and Mocha teapots featured in the show are full of seesaw-like fun. It combines several natural forces: fire, steam, pressure, and gravity to make the operation of the Belgian royal coffeemaker feel more visible.

French press

French press is a coffee pot with the function of making tea. Principle: by the way of soaking, the water and coffee powder is in full contact with the soaking stew method to release the essence of coffee. Applicable to coffee: strong and light taste can be coffee powder. Degree of attrition: coarse granular.

Disadvantages: because the metal filter can not completely filter the fine powder, coffee beans need to be coarse grinding, and coffee powder particles become coarse, resulting in a large number of content that can not be extracted. But long-time immerse again can extract excessively, bitter taste, astringent taste, and miscellaneous flavor gushes out one after another, therefore coffee taste slightly inferior.

Electric coffee machine

General Market Common coffee drip machine, Italian-style steam coffee machine. Drip coffee machine prices and siphon pots are comparable, suitable for the moderate or deep roast of coffee, slightly fine grinding particles, and bitter taste. It uses electricity to boil the water and then soak it. This makes black coffee the easiest, but it tastes a bit worse because it’s made with boiling water. Italian-style steam coffee machine brewing coffee is stronger, the temperature is higher, and the taste of coffee heavier than drip machine brewing heavier. Italian steam coffee pot is a kind of high-pressure, high-temperature steam through the coffee powder extraction machine, the best temperature of the coffee is 90 -98 degrees Celsius, Italian coffee machine temperature control is quite good. Home espresso machines often come with a foam-filled mouth to make cappuccinos; they also often have a warming function.

Currently, 90% of commercials use such coffee machines, because in a short time can be made the full flavor of strong coffee.

It is because of production convenience, the market emerged a lot of small household coffee machines, compared to buying a cup, home production is more economical and emotional.

Would you like to make a cup of coffee for yourself every day at home to perk up for the day?
