A Magical Drink

Brewing coffee is not a piece of cake. Only ardent coffee lovers can do it, because it’s an art to brew coffee with the accurate flavour and aroma. The baristas weigh every single dose of espresso on a coffee scale before pulling a shot. Once an espresso is dialed in, it is imperative to ensure the results are consistent and every guest gets the same quality brew by weighing the dose and output.That is why making coffee is, certainly, not an easy task.

Coffee bean harvesting is still done manually. The beans grow in clusters of two; each cluster is called a ‘cherry.’ Next, the beans are dried and husked. In one method, the wet method, the beans are put in pulping machines to remove most of the husk. After fermenting in large tanks, the beans are put in hulling machines, where mechanical stirrers remove the final covering and polish the beans to a smooth, glossy finish. After being cleaned and sorted, the beans are roasted in huge ovens. Only after roasting do the beans emit their familiar aroma. Then the beans are cooled.

Why are coffee manufacturers toiling hard for us to make just a small cup of this bitter hot liquid? On an average, around 166.63 million kilogram bags of coffee are consumed all over the world annually. This aromatic beverage is celebrated worldwide and many people simply can’t function until they’ve had their first cup of the morning to get their day started on the right foot. In addition to its energizing effects, coffee has been linked to a long list of potential health benefits: ability to increase energy levels, promote weight management, enhance athletic performance, protect against chronic diseases; giving one all the more reason to get brewing.

Whether we are cradling a travel mug on our way to work or dashing out after spin class to refuel with a skinny latte, it’s hard to imagine a day without this magical drink. Just like they say: “Good ideas start with brainstorming; great ideas start with COFFEE.”
