Coffee Delivery at Your Service: Here’s Our Best Fall Flavors

Leaves are falling, temperatures are dropping, and neighborhood baristas are prepping their machines for the holidays ahead. Everybody has his or her favorites – pumpkin spice, cinnamon and cider. But, how do you bring those fall flavors into the office? With some coffee knowledge and help from the best coffee delivery service, here are a few ways you can brew everyone’s fall favorites right in the office.

The 4 Fundamentals of Coffee

1. Proportion

To create an amazing cup of coffee, you need to start with the basics. First, you’ll need the right proportion of coffee to water. The best coffee delivery services recommend using 10 grams of coffee for every 180 mL of water, or roughly two tablespoons per six ounces. If the coffee is too strong for your taste, you can always add a little hot water. However, it’s nearly impossible to add flavor back into your coffee.

2. Grind

Next, keep in mind that brewing methods have different grind requirements. Here’s a rule of thumb: the shorter the brew, the finer the grind. An espresso machine uses a fine grind since brewing only takes 15-20 seconds while a French press would use a coarse grid since the water and coffee are in contact for four minutes. For traditional coffee makers that use flat-bottom filters, you’d choose the medium setting.

3. Water

Coffee is 89 percent water. So, the third fundamental is (you guessed it) using clean water that’s free of impurities. Total Beverage Services sources the cleanest water possible before it goes through future purification and testing. Unlike municipal or public water, our water is tested weekly by the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and annually by the FDA and IBWA. In addition to clarity, the water must be at the proper temperature in order to extract the coffee’s full range of flavors. This is where choosing the best coffee delivery services comes into play.

4. Freshness

Coffee should be treated like fresh produce. Its enemies are oxygen, light, heat and moisture. To keep your coffee fresh, we recommend storing it in an opaque, airtight container at room temperature. For the best results, grind your coffee just before brewing. Or, if you have to store it in bulk, only grind a week’s worth at a time for full freshness.
