I had fun trying to create a little clip to show my little morning ritual of when I make coffee. The video is amateur but I try to show the course of things. Do not hesitate to tell me what you think. By the way, make this video made me want to try to… Continue reading My morning ritual
Towards the end of the XVIe century, stories (more and more frequent) of travelers and botanists on this new plant reach Europe from the Middle East. European merchants are starting to take an interest in this commodity. Already trading with the Middle East, the Venetians succeed in the early 1600s to bring the first bags… Continue reading History: the spread of coffee in the world
As I explained briefly in my previous article (which explains how to recover the pressure of extraction on a lever machine), it is possible to know the water temperature of a boiler by measuring the water pressure. Example of a double pressure gauge found in some coffee machines. Top: boiler pressure, bottom: pressure during extraction.… Continue reading How to convert the pressure of a manometer to temperature?
Controlling and understanding the water pressure in your coffee machine is important in order to successfully extract it. This parameter is completely controlled on automatic machines while it is less on a manual machine such as the Pavoni. Some knowledge can help to better understand and better control the water pressure when using the Pavoni… Continue reading Measure and understand the pressure on a Pavoni

I propose today to look at what their impacts are, the promises of… Continue reading The ecological aberration of capsules (pods) machines

Behind this recipe, we find a partnership between Illy cafes and cook David Toutain. The realization of this dish is of… Continue reading Coffee recipe: Pork loin in coffee
I decided to open a series of articles that will talk about some environmental problems that are associated with the misuse of coffee. You will discover that trivial practices of everyday life can have a much more serious impact than we think. The subjects will not necessarily talk about coffee as such. For example, we… Continue reading Ecology Coffee: Opening a series of articles
One does not necessarily realize this, but the use of disposable cups has a real ecological impact. There are so many people who use it (and especially not recycle them) that the problem is real.
Making a good espresso coffee is a real science. And the latter is a real pleasure. Every coffee we make is slightly different and we try to understand the small detail that influenced his coffee, why we found it better. We test different settings of mills, different quantities of coffee, a more or less long… Continue reading Making the perfect espresso
The preservation of coffee is essential not to affect the aromas of coffee. Leaving it in the open air is synonymous with oxidation and when you like coffee, you quickly understand that mastering its preservation is important. Faced with this problem, I did some research to understand how to keep his coffee well. I will… Continue reading How to keep your coffee well?
