Semi naked women, sex and foreplay have often been used in coffee adverts, going back to the days when coffee ads had people asking each other in for a coffee, which became known for  ” do you want to come around my place and have sex” …no really I would just like a coffee. back in the seventies the beans were shaken in the hand by a threesome -two women and a man. as time progressed we got into the neighbour next door running out of coffee, and then a relationship building.. a little less subtle.

More recently we have Kenco adverts with a couple trying to have sex on the kitchen table, until they knock over their tin of precious espresso coffee, and then stop..implying that coffee is better than sex.

What do you think will come over the next 40 years? I am sure that in the rest if europe, and especially in places like France, there will all ready be naked women and men have sex on the tele, whilst thinking about espresso coffee. Perhaps we might see George Cluny getting his kit off and doing it with some bird whilst enjoying a Nespresso capsule.

I find nespresso the most flavoursome, easy to use and easy to dispose of system in the coffee market. their selection of coffee is exceptional with a high variety of choice from decaf to lungos. My personal favourite is the dulsao do brasil it’s smooth and the added hint of honey makes it sweet to taste. Some of the more full bodied espressos such as the Ristretto and appregio really give you a kick in the morning of you want to wake up and get into gear but some of the softer coffee’s like the volluto and the dulsao are a nice espresso to drink in the evening. You can get nespresso compatible capsules from aromo coffee ltd

I have been using a Nespresso coffee machine along with my ese coffee machine to do some testing. Now I do like the nespresso coffee pods, and they make a good cup of coffee. But I just tried a pod as an espresso shot – and was very disappointed. The Aromo coffee pod is so much nicer – more flavour and character with a smooth taste. Even the Bounce is better. So for all you espresso coffee lovers out there, try the aromo E.S.E. Coffee pods – you can get your hands on a mixed case from the website: www.aromocoffee.co.uk

I am having a really bad day today.. nothing seems to be going right. SO I made myself a cup of espresso coffee to cheer me up. It did for a while, and it made me think of our wonderful aromo coffee business that sells ESE espresso coffee pods in the UK -so alls well.

Steamed Coffees? What are they and how do they affect my beautiful espresso?

Put simply steamed coffee is green coffee beans which are treated or washed with saturated steam under pressure (1 > 3 bar) and withan increased humidity level of 6 > 12 % over the course of approximately 1 hour

Most commonly it is the Lendrich system used here in Europe, which was originally patented in 1933

Steamed coffees are more easily digestible those with sensitive stomachs… and so such products are often marketed as ‘stomach friendly’ in the Continental European market- being particularly popular in Germany

Steaming supposedly removes irritants (other than the caffeine you’ll be pleased to hear!) which may cause, or exacerbate stomach ache,heart burn and acid indigestion

Various reports – such as Albanese 1964 and Rahn 1979 – have concluded that there is a genuine change in the chemistry of steamed coffee with reductions in:

Tannin (24%)

Chlorogenic Acid (3%)

Mercaptomethane (11%)

Mannans (6%)

Pyrocatechol (25%)

As well as Pyridine and Furfurol (12 > 82 mg / kilo Mohr and Wichman 1987)

Incidentally- it is not only arabica which are steamed…more commonly – steaming is used in the soluble or instant coffee industry to improve Robusta coffees… that means that as a consumer you get a cheaper product which tastes ok!

Never knew coffee was such a chemistry lesson did you?

But that’s what makes it so very special and what makes the art of the roaster so very important….

Get it wrong at the roasting stage and this can lead to, in effect, a chemical imbalance in the roast which adversely affects the flavour and aroma of your beautiful cup of espresso or coffee– leave the technical stuff to us and rest assured you are getting the finest  ESE espresso pods available anywhere! 🙂

Does it? I am drinking more espresso coffee, or even more coffee (not necs espresso coffee) as it gets colder. As I sit at my desk, shivering in the lower temperatures, the only think that is keeping me warm is a nice cup of espresso based coffee (I am having a ESE espresso at the moment) So does drinking espresso coffee increase when the weather is colder? Perhaps this should be addressed to the espresso drinkers in the UK (just taking another sip of hot coffee,mmmm nice). It’s time to get the heating on and the fires going… Sunday lunches are more hearty with meat and game on the table, followed by a film in the afternoon, espresso coffee and a long walk in the autumn leaves wrapped up with a scarf and wellies. I love this time of year!

Okay, well it lasted about 5 hours then I had to give in, and I turned on my espresso coffee machine. It was much easier and much, much better coffee than the tesco rubbish I have been drinking all morning! So you can stop drinking espresso coffee, but not for long. I just can’t go back to poor quality and poor tasting coffee, however much espresso costs – there is nothing better in my view.. well apart from maybe a really great hot chocolate.

I decided that I shall try and drink the coffee in a jar today and give drinking espresso coffee a break – espresso is special and I don’t want to dilute the drink by having every day, 8 cups a say. So today I am drinking a cup of Tesco freeze dried GOLD. SO I have boiled the kettle (something which I seem to have forgotten to be able to do) and added the water to the cup…a slight smell of burning. Added some milk and a quarter teaspoon of sugar. It’s okay, but it’s not the hit I need in the morning that I get from great espresso coffee. The second sip is worse. Too milky (and I only put a little milk in) and not strong enough, even with 2 spoons of coffee. It tastes of a warm wet drink, but  not sure if it is tea or coffee – it doesn’t stand out and shout “HEY, I’m a great Coffee! Wake Up!” I will perservere and see how the day goes. But already fear that I will be straight back onto the better espresso by this afternoon. After all it is Friday!.

 

Some very sad news:

On another note, a sad note, I was and am very sorry to hear of the death of Steve Jobs, CEO and co-founder of Apple. He was a great man that changed our world for the better. I have used macs for over 20 years, and I am writing this blog on an imac. We will miss you Steve. I thought I would leave you with this quote, perhaps the most appropriate quote given Steve Jobs’ legacy, his vision, and the way he lived his life:

“I want to put a ding in the universe.”

You did, Steve. You did.

God Bless.
