Filter coffee

The taste development
of filter coffee

The taste experience of filter coffee starts with smelling freshly ground coffee. When you make filter coffee, you will immediately notice the aroma through the nose. The aroma is volatile and disappears quickly.

Filter coffee consists largely of water. During the brewing of the filter coffee, the coffee components slowly dissolve in the water over different times. The taste is formed by the water-soluble coffee particles. The insoluble particles give the body or mouthfeel.

Which affects the taste of filter coffee

There are a number of variables that influence the taste of your filter coffee. There is no such thing as 1 coffee recipe. When making filter coffee, take the following elements into account: the coffee beans, ratio of coffee to water, the grinding degree, the contact time between the water and the ground coffee, the type and quality of the water, the temperature of the water, the filter material and the filter method.

De smaak van filterkoffie

De smaakervaring van filterkoffie begint bij het ruiken van vers gemalen koffie. Als je filterkoffie zet, dan zal je meteen via de neus het aroma waarnemen. Het aroma is vluchtig en verdwijnt snel.

Filterkoffie bestaat grotendeels uit water. Tijdens het zetten van de filterkoffie lossen over verschillende tijdstippen de koffie componenten langzaam op in het water. De smaak wordt gevormd door de in water oplosbare koffiedeeltjes. De onoplosbare deeltjes geven de body of het mondgevoel.

As coffee roasters and espressobar in Amsterdam South, we specialise in roasting our own beans. The coffee beans go through a number of different heat reactions during the roasting process, all carefully monitored by one of our skilful employees. This results in a far tastier roast, made with finesse.

Water is an essential element for life. After all, without water we wouldn’t have coffee, would we?! When preparing coffee, water is very influential from a physical and chemical standpoint. Brewing the perfect pot of coffee is more than just pouring it in.

93 degrees Celsius is the ideal water temperature with which to brew any coffee. This is actually lower than the temperature water boils at, so precision is key. Our baristas have the skill level to always brew the perfect cup at the ideal temperature.
