Coffee Bean is suitable for those who prefer to grind the beans to their individual taste and preparation method. They are best choice for those who enjoy the sensory pleasures of sight, sound, aroma and touch that come with grinding beans in a personalized version of the coffee ritual.
Filter coffee is coffee made by passing boiling water through a perforated container packed with finely ground coffee contained in a filter. Water seeps through the coffee, absorbs its oils and essences, solely under gravity, then passes throught the bottom of the filter. The used coffee grounds are retained in the filter with the liquid falling (dripping) into a collecting vessel such as a carafe or pot.
Coffee capsules contain a pre-defined amount of ground coffee in capsules that are easy to brew using specialized machines to extract the contents from the capsules and create coffee/espresso.
Also called soluble coffee and coffee powder, Instant Coffee is a beverage derived from brewed coffee beans. It is commercially prepared by either freeze-drying or spray-drying, after which it can be re-hydrated. Its advantages over other types of coffee include:
- Speed of preparation (instant coffee dissolves instantly in hot water)
- Lower shipping weight and volume
- Long shelf life (although it can also spoil if not kept dry).
It is available in powder or granulated form contained in glass jars, sachets or tins. It also gives user the opportunity to control the strength of coffee produced (by adding more or less water for a weaker or stronger brew)
