Could a Bean to Cup Machine be the Answer to Coffee Consistency?

There are many factors that affect the taste of our coffee from the type of bean and where it’s grown to how it’s processed and roasted. However more often than not when we receive a not-so-great tasting coffee it’s much more to do with the freshness or how it’s been made.

To retain freshness, coffee beans need to be stored correctly in a vacuum-sealed or airtight container. Grinding beans just before brewing will also preserve freshness.

Brewing methods are another area where flavour can be compromised. Coffee to water radio, and size of the grind which in turn will impact the speed of extraction all impact taste. If extraction is too fast your coffee will taste acidic, too slow and it can result in a bitter taste. To hit the sweet spot, timing is everything so making sure you’ve got the correct grind size is imperative.

Maintaining your coffee equipment and cleaning it regularly is also an essential element to great tasting coffee.
