Love Coffee?

Do you love coffee, but find that you're tired of weak, watery and disappointing coffee at home? Do you wish there was an easier way to experience the true cafe quality coffee you get from your chosen coffee shop, all from the comfort of your favourite armchair?

Well now there is...

Think back to the last time you had a truly satisfying coffee . . .

Are you thinking?

Thinking Coffee

Were you out at your favourite coffee shop, drinking that really great, cafe quality coffee that they serve...?

Coffee Shop

Wouldn't it be so much better if you could be sat at home enjoying a coffee just as satisfying? 

Coffee Home

Maybe you've tried to make cafe quality coffee at home before?

A cafetiere with fresh ground beans has a good taste, but doesn't give the espresso hit or the premium quality latte that you're after. 

You've tried pod machines, but they are lacking in flavour and finesse. 

You don't want to buy a more expensive machine that promises high performance but cannot deliver.

Perhaps you've given up trying to replicate that coffee shop taste at home?


Do you know the reason that the coffee you had in your local coffee shop tastes so great?

It all comes down to the commercial coffee machine they use to make your drink.

Commercial grade coffee machines have a range of features that are specifically designed to give consistently good coffee every single time.

These machines draw on the 4 key elements that result in a cafe quality coffee.

Get each of these elements right, coupled with some high quality, fresh coffee beans, and you've got yourself that satisfying espresso.

So what are these 4 key elements?

1. Dose Amount

1. Dose Amount

A consistent and balanced espresso requires a dose amount of 19-22g. If you don't have enough coffee then the resulting espresso lacks strength and body. Many commercial machines have automatic dose control for the perfect amount of coffee each time.

2. Water Temperature

2. Water Temperature

For the optimum coffee flavour, precise temperature control is vital. The ideal water temperature for most coffees is around 93 degrees C. Different beans may favour a few degrees either way, but this tends to be considered a good starting point. However, it is crucial that the temperature is maintained at a constant throughout extraction. Too low a temperature leads to a sour taste, and too high and the flavours will be bitter. Commercial machines use a PID controller to achieve and maintain the correct temperature.

3. Water Pressure

3. Water Pressure

Commercial machines use pre infusion to gradually increase the water pressure prior to extraction. This ensures that the coffee grounds are expanded before applying full pressure. Without this, channeling can occur. This means the water simply passes between the tamped coffee and the walls of the basket, leading to a bitter and over-extracted coffee. After pre-infusion, coffee should be extracted at roughly 9 bars of pressure for the best results. Too much pressure results in bitterness, too little and you will get a 'grassy' and underdeveloped taste. In commercial machines this is managed by an Over Pressure Valve. 

4. Steam Pressure

4. Steam Pressure

Commercial grade coffee machines have enough steam pressure to create microfoam. Microfoam is thousands of tiny bubbles that texture milk and trap the oils found in coffee beans to create a sweet and balanced espresso.

That's the 4 key elements.

That's also how the barista at your local coffee shop makes the perfect coffee each and every time.

So how does that help you to get the same quality coffee from the comfort of your own living room?
