THREE ESSENTIALS TO MAKING

GREAT COFFEE

CLEANLINESS

Make sure the machine is clean and the workplace spotless. This not only reduces the risk of cross-contamination, it also makes the expensive machine last longer.

EXTRACTION

Every kind of coffee starts with a shot of espresso, and only great extraction allows you to make great coffee consistently. 

MILK TEMPERATURE

Milk must be at the correct temperature to simplify the texturing process.

THE MOST POPULAR TYPES OF COFFEE

People are passionate about their favourite style of coffee, so it's essential to know exactly what they're ordering. Here's our at-a-glance guide.

AMERICANO

Simply an espresso lengthened with hot water. Milk can be served on the side if requested.

MOCHA

A latte with chocolate mixed in.Also known as a mochaccino.

ESPRESSO

The classic concentrated ‘shot’ of coffee, made by shooting boiling water at high pressure through finely ground beans. Extraction time from start to finish is 20-30 seconds.

CAPPUCCINO

Take an espresso, add steamed milk and finish with foamed milk. Stronger than a latte because there's less milk.

LATTE
