Rediscover your deep-seated passion for coffee, the various ways it can be enjoyed and much more.

INTRODUCTION

The beauty of coffee lies in its transformation from innocuous looking beans to a beverage that soothes your senses like no other. Through CoffeeSutra we are facilitating coffee lovers to explore the world of coffee.

Staying true to its elements coffee holds a distinct significance for different people. For some it’s a conversation starter, while some need it to stimulate their mind. It may be a ritual for some while simply being a companion for some. But more than anything else, coffee adds a unique flavour to your life.

The art of coffee making is not only interesting but extremely fulfilling as well.

The true essence of making a perfect cup of coffee can only be experienced when you try blending all the ingredients with correct measure using a few basic guidelines.

So what makes one coffee different from the other? It’s the elements. Let us break it down for you.

With a little knowledge about the different characteristics a coffee carries like its roast, blend, the system in which you intake we could help you pick the ultimate coffee for yourself!

Let’s get started.

I. ROAST

The simple difference between roasts could be noted by its colour.

Medium Roast
Dark Roast
Balanced Acidity.
Lower acidity.
Nutty, Caramel
Heavy Body, Chocolate
Roasting time 16 minutes.
Roasting Time 30 minutes.
Slightly sweeter flavour.
Bittersweet & smoky flavour.
Oily Surface.

II. Blend

The two most widely grown blends in the world are Arabica and Robusta.

Arabica
Robusta
Consists 0.8 -1.4% caffeine.
Contains 1.7- 4% caffeine.
Fruity, Chocolate, Nutty
Strength & bitter body

Due to the strength and high acidity of Robusta coffee it is unlikely to be used on its own and is blended with Arabica beans to round out the flavour profile to create a desirable blend for consumption.

III. System

Every form of coffee serves a unique purpose. Find your pick!

Beans
Ground

If you see coffee more like a ritual than a beverage, this is the most ideal system for you.
