Like I stated on one of my earlier posts, coffee is always evolving alongside man. This meaning as we continue to learn about coffee, we will continue to advance the technology used to create it. 聽Today we don鈥檛 brew coffee like they did thousands of years ago. 聽We鈥檝e engineered contraptions, tools, and machines to attempt to make the perfect cup and repeatable. 聽

Brewing is probably my favorite part of the coffee process, mainly because it鈥檚 the most hands on. Let鈥檚 be real, we鈥檙e not going to build a farm at the equator to grow our own beans nor purchase a bean roaster, but we can become our own brewmaster!

Know your roasts! Before coffee is roasted it is stored as a green bean. Green beans barely resemble the coffee that you鈥檙e used to, but it allows the coffee to be stored with no loss of quality.
Roasting is the second main step of the coffee making process. It refers to rapidly heating the bean sparking a chemical transformation. The roast process is what brings out the aromas of the coffee and turns the bean to the brown color that we commonly think of coffee as.
Read this article to learn about the different qualities each type of roast has!

One of the most important factors that can affect a coffee鈥檚 taste is where it was grown. Coffee is primarily grown around the equator in countries such as Costa Rica, Columbia, El Salvador and many more. 聽Each location and growing season presents different variables that can affect the taste of the beans. Altitude is one such factor. 聽The higher the altitude the harder the bean produced. The harder the bean means the greater the sugar concentration a key factor in producing a more nuance and thought after flavor. 聽

Okay first off, I think we need to clear the air. The description of the blog states that this is the crossroads of art and science, but you may be thinking how coffee is an art form... This is where we need to see the bigger picture of the coffee making process. 聽For many of us, our image of coffee is just the end product. It鈥檚 just some blackish liquid that we get from starbucks or dunkin donuts or wherever, but we tend to forget about everything in between. 聽There are 3 main steps of the coffee making process: growing, roasting, and brewing. At聽each step, there are literally hundreds of different variables that can be altered that affect your end product. So, to get to the point where you鈥檙e sipping and enjoying a nice cup of coffee, a lot of work and expertise went into it. 聽So yes, I truly believe coffee is an art form.

Let鈥檚 just start off with the basics...聽
Coffee (藞k么f膿,藞k盲f膿)
a drink made from the roasted and ground beanlike seeds of a tropical shrub, served hot or iced.
Let鈥檚 face it, we all pretty much know what coffee is. It鈥檚 a drink that鈥檒l give us that kick start in the morning or keep us up all through the night. To some, it鈥檚 essential to their daily routines and a headache to live without. But the instant joy that coffee gives us can also result in us becoming ignorant to the entirety of the coffee process.聽
We shouldn鈥檛 have to be a stereotypical brooklyn hipster or know-it-all barista to know how your perfect cup of joe was made. Let鈥檚 break down the science and technology in making that perfect cup of coffee one bean at a time.聽
