Coffee At Home

There are many methods of preparing coffee at home. For very best results, it is important to use the right grind of coffee. In addition, the correct blend of beans must be used for each different coffee beverage.

This system is considered the most sophisticated and the best for extracting the most from ground coffee. It requires a professional coffee maker. The recommended grind is fine-medium, and depends somewhat on the type of coffee machine used. Cafesserie’s “Breakfast kahawa” coffee blend is perfect for preparing authentic Italian espresso. The blend produces a very strong coffee with light acidity, it is great for lovers of a rich coffee aroma. This blend is particularly suitable for preparing “pure” coffee (without milk).
At our branches we use our “House Blend”. It is suitable for brewing all kinds of espresso (with or without milk) and it is also ideal for preparing classic Italian cappuccino. Together with the milk, it produces a soft, velvety flavour with a light sweetness. It has become East Africa’s favorite for the perfect cappuccino. Our “House Blend” is also suitable for espresso, however it is excellent for preparing cappuccino in a home coffee machine. The “Siesta Blend” is also great for making espresso and cappuccino at home.


Turkish Coffee
Turkish coffee is brewed by boiling the grounds in a “Finjan” (coffee pot) or by just pouring hot water in a small glass with one teaspoon of a very fine grind coffee. Our “House Blend” in Cafesserie is most suited for this type of coffee.

Filter coffee
Filter coffee may be prepared manually or by using an electric coffee maker. Manually made coffee is as fast and easy as making instant coffee. After three minutes the coffee is absorbed by the water, the flavor is extracted, and then by depressing the handle, the grounds are pushed to the bottom and the coffee beverage is ready.
Electric percolators and drip machines work on the principle of coffee grounds placed in a paper filter, where hot water absorbs the coffee and then trickles through the filter into the coffee pot. Cafesserie’s “Kenya AA” beans are excellent for manually preparing filter coffee at home or at the office. For electric percolators and drip machines, the grind should be slightly finer than for manual devices.

The macchineta is an apparatus for preparing stovetop coffee, and this espresso preparation method takes a little more time. The word “espresso” implies speedy coffee (express), which is why we call the macchineta coffee “mocha” and not “espresso”. The macchineta is composed of three main parts: the water holder, the coffee holder (filter) and the pipe which produces the pressure (1 atmosphere). Cafesserie’s “Siesta” is the most suitable for preparing mocha coffee.
