Find the right coffee
If you want to serve up the very best coffee experience, you can’t just do it with any old coffee bean. The two main types of coffee beans commonly used are Arabica and Robusta. Each of these beans has a different flavour profile and is suited for different types of coffee drinks. For example, Arabica coffee has a full body and lower acidity; it is best served hot without any milk for the flavours to be fully appreciated. Arabica coffee is more suitable for espressos and Americanos.
Robusta coffee has a heavier body and also has a low acidity; it is commonly associated with having hints of chocolate in its flavour profile. This type of coffee works well with milk and sugar and is the popular choice for making cold coffee drinks, lattes and cappuccinos.
It is important that you don’t fall into the trap of choosing the cheapest beans out there in an attempt to make more money per cup. This is one of the biggest mistakes you can make for your business and can be detrimental in the impression you make on your coffee drinking customers. Customers will certainly taste a difference in the coffee, and if you don’t show pride in the cup you are serving, they will be unlikely to return in future.
Older, outdated coffee beans provide a bitter and tasteless cup of coffee, so it is important that your coffee has a roasted-on date and not just a best-before date.
