Scales and Numbers
If you want to boost revenue at your coffee shop, you need to make the best coffee in town. It can be hard to believe how numbers can affect the quality of good coffee. However, you may be surprised to know how the quantity of grind and even the water can affect it. Not a lot of people can understand that there’s a ratio between grind, water, cream, ice, milk, etc. The levels of each component can drastically change the taste if you don't know how to measure each of them.
The Art of Pour
There is one skill in coffee brewing that only a few of the most experienced baristas can deliver consistently. Pouring is easy to pickup but excruciatingly hard to master. Most will look at it and say it isn’t that hard but it’s in the small details that spell the difference. The way you pour it, the water used to pour, and a range of different factors can affect the taste of the coffee. The barista’s one aim here is to find a pour technique that will give them consistently good coffee.
Teamwork is Core
