About this deal

These acids and sugars present in the coffee can be the result of the variety of the plant, and the elevation and the nature of the soil that it is grown in. Created by a 55-year-old farmer from Canton Los Llanitos, this stellar coffee has a narrative that spans over three decades. Flat white: A style of coffee made with espresso and topped with flat steamed milk to a total size of 6oz.

On the slightly negative side, the page number location takes a bit of getting used to as it is quite small under the relevant letter in the 5-cm wide margin and is hard to read in poor light. Illustrated throughout and covering anything from country of origin, variety of bean and growing and harvesting techniques to roasting methods, brewing equipment, tasting notes - as well as the many different coffee-based drinks - The Coffee Dictionary is the final word on coffee. Inside are 256 quality, matte-finish, crisp-WHITE pages, the main text clearly laid out in BLACK type with a bolder title and littered throughout with charming line illustrations, from TOM JAY, which I really like, reminding me of the cover of one of my favourite series of cook books.Varietal: There are many varieties of coffee plants, many have been cross bred over the years to create higher yields or to increase resilience to pests. Thomas likes to bring creative ingredients together from around the world, but especially from local organic suppliers for the freshest and best possible flavor.

The result is a drink that possesses a bitter or burnt taste – not ideal for making those smooth and delicious lattes or cappuccinos! HIGH-GROWN Arabica coffee grown at altitudes of 3,000 feet and beyond is usually superior in taste quality to coffee grown downslope and is known as ‘high grown’. Cupping: The standard technique used by coffee professionals to taste and measure the quality of coffee. It is the acidity in coffee that gives it life or ‘brightness’; it gives the high notes and complexity.

Moka Pot - (Also known as StoveTop) The Moka Pot is a stove-top or electric coffee maker that brews coffee by passing boiling water pressurised by steam through ground coffee.
