At Journey 2 Learn, we understand that Australians have a unique love for coffee. From the bustling streets of Melbourne to the laid-back beaches of Sydney, coffee is a part of everyday life down under. Here, we offer some tips to help you enjoy your 100% Arabica roasted whole coffee beans.
Great coffee starts with fresh beans. Look for locally roasted whole coffee beans to experience the unique flavours that Australian coffee culture has to offer.
To keep that Aussie freshness, store your beans in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. Make sure to protect them from the hot Aussie sun and high humidity, which can affect the flavour.
Your coffee grind size has a significant impact on the taste. Adjust your grinder to match your brewing method – coarser for French press and finer for espresso. Find the right grind size that suits your preferences.
Cleanliness is crucial. Make sure your coffee maker or brewing equipment is clean, as any leftover oils and residues can affect the flavour of your brew. A quick rinse and regular maintenance can make a big difference.
Aussies love their coffee to be strong and flavourful. Experiment with the coffee-to-water ratio to find the perfect balance for your taste. A bit stronger is usually the way to go.
The quality of your water matters. If your tap water has strong odours or flavours, consider using filtered or bottled water to let the coffee's natural flavours shine through.
Coffee offers endless possibilities. Explore different brewing methods, from pour-over to AeroPress to espresso, and discover which one best suits your taste.
Brewing with water that's between 195°F and 205°F (90°C to 96°C) is essential to extract the best flavours from your coffee. Invest in an accurate thermometer to ensure the right temperature.
Keep an eye on the brewing time. Brewing for too long can result in bitterness, while a too short brew might be underwhelming. Follow your recipe's suggested brew time for optimal results.
Take a moment to appreciate the aroma before taking your first sip. Let your coffee cool slightly to experience the full range of flavours. Make note of the subtleties, like floral, fruity, or nutty undertones.
Coffee is a social experience. Share your favourite brews with friends and family, and discuss the unique tastes you discover.
