It may seem difficult to determine which coffee is best suited to your tastes and the type of brewing method you want during our morning ritual. Here is a little guide that will certainly help you to find the one that will give you the perfect cup!

Origin of the coffee

First, you need to choose an overall taste profile of a region that best fits your preferences. Here are some examples to guide you!

Roasting

 

Several types of roasting are available on the market, but the most common types are light, medium and dark roast. Each has distinct characteristics: light roasts, for example, tend to retain the aromas of their origin flavors, which makes it much richer in taste and true to its origins. In addition, it will be more often acidulous and fruity.

Medium roast coffee, on the other hand, is probably the most balanced of all; you can enjoy a great harmony between acidity, body and bitterness!

Finally, dark roast coffee is distinguished by its bitterness and the texture of its grains, more often oily. You will find similar profiles with smoked, grilled or even burnt aromas.

 

Coffee grinding

The choice of grinding is essential when it's time to choose your coffee. It will greatly influence the quality of your extraction, so it is essential to choose the correct grind according to the brewing method you use.

In the case of espresso, for example, inadequate grinding will not allow you to extract the coffee optimally. The French press, meanwhile, will not brew good coffee if the coffee beans are too thin because they will obstruct the metal filter. We must therefore favor a coarse grind that will respond to its mechanics.
