Coffee is definitely a beverage that accompanies many people in their everyday life. However, no matter in which country it is produced, it is necessary to go through many processes to reach our cup.
The fruit of the coffee before it is processed is practically tasteless. But how does a tawny grain end to something so unique. The result that one tastes in a cup of coffee depends on the variety and geographical location cultivated, the conditions in which it was maintained after its harvest, its roasting and the final filtration method that produces the coffee, coffee.
Roasting is without a doubt the process that gives coffee the final “character” and that is why it is very important. What happens to the grain during roasting? Coffee increases in size due to heat and loses much of the water it contains. It changes color and from white or green gradually changes to brown and then to black depending on the duration of roasting, while the duration of roasting is directly related to how intense the taste of the final result will be. Finally, heat releases chemical compounds inside each grain and thus “emits” its flavor.
Fragrances produced by a roasting machine may be intoxicating for coffee lovers, and although it is now possible to roast home, the process is not for everyone. In order to achieve a more economical but at the same time a quality result, the best option is to buy roasted grains and grind them home before you make coffee. This will give you the unique experience of freshly ground coffee every day.
In all our coffees at 1000+1 Flavors (in the area of Apokoronas Chania), we import only high quality beans. Above all, thanks to our knowledge on the subject and our taste, we make exquisite Greek coffee blends as well as a wide variety of aromatic coffees so you can enjoy fine espresso and filter drinks.
