Coffee At Home Part 1: Coffee Bags
It’s no secret that coffee is a vital part of the working day for a lot of people. With recent social distancing measures due to the Covid-19 pandemic, most of us are working from the comfort of our own homes. While for many people this is a welcome change from office life, there is one thing missing. Good quality coffee.
Unfortunately, many of our friends in the café and hospitality industry have had to temporarily close their doors to do their part in preventing the spread of coronavirus. We’re no longer able to pop into a coffee shop and pick up a drink, but that’s no reason to have to settle for an instant coffee while working from home.
Coffee Bags remain relatively unknown to the majority of people outside the industry, but the concept is simple. Imagine a teabag, but with fresh coffee inside. All you need to do is brew, stir, squeeze and serve! It’s an incredibly simple solution for those of us who don’t have all the gear at home to make a great tasting, fresh coffee.
Famous Blue Mountain
This coffee is our premium blend of four single origin coffees, sourced from cooperatives working hard to make a difference in their communities. blended together by our roasters to bring you the world in a cup.
Frequent rain enriches the mountain soil’s mica and quartz crystal deposits, giving this excellent coffee its unique quality. At harvest, the ripest cherries are handpicked and brought to the mill for wet processing. Naturally sun-dried, this arabica coffee has a highly intense aroma with an elegant and delicate sweetness. Since the 1950s, coffee production in Cuba has fallen by more than 80%, but now Cuba is rebuilding its economy through cooperatives. We bring together producers and customers – our members produce and drink our coffee.
There are plenty of ways to brew fantastic coffee at home, but coffee bags are one of my favourites. As this blog and video series will demonstrate, there are all sorts of fancy home brewing techniques available, but nothing is easier than a coffee bag. In these, let’s be honest, pretty difficult times, it’s nice to be able to still access café quality coffee from the comfort of your own home – whether you’re working there or not!
