Brewing Coffee with Coffee Machines

by admin on July 29, 2010

The process of brewing coffee is considered by many to be an art form. As such, the equipment that is used at every stage of the process is imperative in determining the final result. Coffee can be made using any one of many methods; coffee can be boiled, steeped, or pressured.
Percolators or automatic coffee-makers utilise the effect of gravity in order to brew coffee. In these machines, hot water is allowed to drip onto coffee grounds that are held in a coffee filter. This filter is either made of paper or perforated metal and allows the water to pass through the ground coffee, thereby creating a liquid infused with the aromas and taste of the ground coffee beans. Coffee may also be brewed using other methods. One such example is to brew coffee by using a device known as a French press. In this method, ground coffee and hot water are combined in a coffee press and left to brew for a set period of time. A plunger is then used to remove the coffee from the container, leaving the ground coffee at the bottom of the device.
An espresso machine forces hot, pressurised water through ground coffee. This method of brewing under high pressure means that the final product has as much as 10 to 15 times the amount of coffee to water ratio as coffee brewed using other methods.
All of these coffee brewing products are available at Witham’s Coffee. To find out more about coffee machines and coffee machine related equipment, visit


Most of us spend a fair portion of our time in office drinking coffee. Cameroon Taylor is one of those few lucky ones who gets to drink coffee for work. He has been a coffee enthusiast for as long as he can remember and after having a sip of most of the major types of coffee from around the world, he started to write about the first love of his life; coffee. The love affair continues?
