Workshop Manual

- Barista -

Introduction;

Along with our brew manual, we thought it would be nice to illustrate in more detail and explain how some of the many different Italian types of coffee that we commonly see on daily basis are  achieved. 

 

Although Espresso drinks can be achieved using medium or dark roasted coffee 

 (strength is all in the grind fineness don't forget), we do recommend using our Supercharged Nicaraguan Dark Roast or Twin Cam Colombian Supremo Dark Roast to obtain the optimum taste and strengths for these brews.

No wonder coffee is the biggest consumed beverage drank in the world, there are so many variables that can be made, and in most cases it all starts with a small drop of espresso!

Basics of Espresso;

Ristsetto Coffee
Espresso Coffee

On its own, espresso is typically a strong shot of coffee, but even in the espresso world, there are a few variables in strength to drink this shot of rich coffee!

Espresso - 10 - 15g of fine ground coffee using around 30ml of water.

Doppio -  (Italian double shot) 15 - 30g of fine ground coffee using 60ml of water.

Ristsetto - concentrated strength using 10 - 15g of fine ground coffee using 20ml of water (rocket fuel).

Lungo - less concentrated than a Ristessto but more bitter in taste, 30g of fine ground coffee using 50 - 60ml of water.

Americano - a shot of espresso topped up with 60ml of water, making it a total of around 100ml of lush coffee.
