Arabica Arabica beans give us an aroma that is both mild and deep - for an incomparable espresso experience. The Arabica tree grows between 900 and 2000 metres above sea level and needs temperatures of between 15° and 24°C.
Arabica
RobustaContains around twice as much caffeine and produces powerful espresso with a bitter taste. Robusta beans usually grow in lower regions (200 to 600 metres) and like a warmer climate—between 24° and 29°C.
1. SELECTING THE COFFEE BEANSThere are two types of coffee bean: Arabica and Robusta. Arabica grows at altitudes of 900 to 2000 metres above sea level and needs temperatures of between 15 and 24°C. Robusta grows in lower altitude regions (200 to 600 metres) and likes a warmer climate—between 24 and 29°C.
2. HARVESTINGOnly picking coffee berries by hand guarantees the highest quality. Coffee trees can bloom up to eight times a year, meaning they often bear both ripe and unripe berries at the same time. So hand-picking ensures that only the ripe berries are harvested.
3. ROASTINGThe green-coloured coffee beans are removed from the berries and transported to the roasting facilities in burlap sacks (burlap protects the beans from humidity). The beans are then roasted at temperatures of 200 to 240°C, whereby they gain their typical brown colour. This colour depends on the temperature, which defines the exact tone of the beans as well as their individual aroma.
4. BLENDINGBy blending the various sorts of coffee beans, a combination can be created which provides a balanced aroma. As there are countless sorts of roasted coffee beans, an unlimited number of various coffee blends are possible. To create a successful combination of coffee beans, years of experience and outstanding expert knowledge are necessary.
5. BREWINGAfter the beans have been unpacked, the coffee can be brewed. You can let your Philips Saeco bean-to-cup espresso machine do the work for you. It freshly grinds the coffee beans, heats the water and presses it at high pressure with 15 bar through just the right amount of freshly ground coffee powder. The result is an espresso for connoisseurs: full-bodied, intense and deliciously aromatic, with an aroma topped off with an exquisite, hazelnut-brown crema.
Colour intensity
The crema layer's colour saturation is the result of the roasting and extraction process. It's measured in a scale ranging from 0 to 9, from pale yellow to dark brown. Only a correct process guarantees a 'Perfetto' colouring, from light to hazelnut brown (from 4 to 7).
Texture
The crema layer's texture is the result of the various coffee elements' mix. Its fineness can be measured in a scale ranging from 0 to 9. Its appropriate range goes from 6 to 9, indicating a compact, smooth, silky and shiny texture.
Olfactory intensity
The olfactory intensity is the combination of all positive or negative sensations that you feel when you smell the espresso. On a scale of 0 to 9, the "Perfetto" range is 6 to 9.
Body
An espresso's body is directly related to the viscosity of its preparation and it produces different levels of sphericity, roundness, syrupiness and structure's perception. The adequate range, in a 0 to 9 scale, goes from 6 to 9.
Acidity
Acidity describes the fresh sensation perceived through taste. In order to guarantee a good tasting espresso, acidity should be between 2 and 5 on a 0 to 9 scale.
Bitterness
