Coffee At Home Tools
Instant coffee with hot milk gives a high quality frothy coffee drink that tastes like a coffee house coffee.
Use ground coffee and a cafetiere/ French Press to make a high quality coffee at home. Make one or several cups at once using this method.
I have thought about focussing on making good coffee at home as I donâ€™t think people are aware of the different tools available, other than the obvious and expensive coffee machines. Also, there are minimal guides out there explaining how to make good coffee at home. There are other factors as well as the production method that affect quality, such as storing your coffee, the mug you use and more that I donâ€™t think most people are aware of.
Packaging & Branding
Packaging coffee is about more than making it look good and explaining the product. Roasted coffee can lose up to 40 percent of itâ€™s aromas after only eight hours of contact with air and taste can be hugely affected.
Coffee Houses/Shops Coffee Art
Coffee houses offer a unique, relaxed environment for socialising, business and more.
A new craze that makes your coffee shop coffee even more special. This can be used to brand coffees as well as creating more elaborate art.
The first European coffee house opened in Venice in 1683, but the most famous was the Caffe Florian in Piazza San Marco, opening in 1720. This is still open for business today.
Starbucks and Costa Coffee are two of the biggest, most popular coffee shops in the UK today. Both began in 1971 but Costa began in the UK whereas Starbucks is American. Starbucks is associated with glamour and style and carrying the famous Starbucks take-out cup is now almost a fashion accessory.
Take Out Take out coffee allows busy business people or general people in a rush to grab a caffeine fix on the go. Take out cups are usually branded or even feature, pattern or other design. As these are drank on the go they are a great promotion.
