Coffee For All Occasions
Coffee For All Occasions
Picture this: it’s 6am and you’re trying to get ready for work at zombie pace. It’s late afternoon and you’re lagging before the school pick up. It’s time to be social but you lack energy… There are plenty of reasons we reach for a coffee each day but there are also plenty of occasions to consider which coffee would work best for and when. With our latest blog hit, we’re aiming to caffeinate your minds with recommendations from ritualistic pre-email reading coffees to the special dessert coffees because let’s face it, coffee is needed for most occasions.
The first thing to consider when choosing your coffee is whether you want a cup for fuel or flavour? Let’s start with the best coffees for fuel. For most people, a coffee first thing is their ‘morning made’, energy in a cup and their ‘breakfast must’. This time of day is perfect for an intense dark roast to awaken the senses whilst gently soothing you through your commute or morning chores. This also goes hand in hand with daily events such as breakfast whereby traditionally milk is added to the brew. Choosing a darker roast allows the perfect balance for a milky coffee without overpowering the coffee itself. You can try Coffee Planet’s breakfast, Italian dark roast, Reviving or Awakening blends if morning fuel is needed.
For a later brew, or after food and social occasions people often favour an espresso, an intense and condensed shot that is often drunk post meal as the strength of the caffeine in the espresso can help to overcome any sleepy feelings caused by heavy eating. Traditionally an espresso would be the preferred choice of coffee to drink in the afternoon. We provide Espresso & Organic Espresso capsules to suit.
Finally, when choosing the best type of beans for flavour well, that’s another story. With increasing popularity for single origin and microlot coffees, these complex coffees often have a distinctive aroma and regional nuances in flavour. These types of coffees can accompany desserts or evening dinner parties, adding that touch of luxury. We recommend Colombia, Ethiopia or Brazil origin beans.
So, there you have it folks, our coffee recommendations depending on time of day and occasion. However, go with your personal preference and pick the coffee to suit your mood! Fortunately, our range of ground, whole bean and capsule specialty coffees are plentiful, so you can make the right choice.
