Yesterday, Qianjie mentioned the mocha pot during a conversation with a guest friend, so he launched a series of conversations around the mocha pot, which aroused the interest of other guests and friends, so they joined the discussion.

Such a situation is unimaginable for mocha pots in previous years. After all, mocha pots are still quite unpopular coffee utensils in China a few years ago, and it is difficult to search for a complete tutorial on the Internet. This also leads to the fact that most people use the wrong parameters / methods to make a bad mocha pot of coffee, thus adding some negative stereotypes to the mocha pot.

It was only in recent years that the popularity of coffee increased the demand for caffeine, and people began to pay attention to this chic "coffee pot". Coupled with the spread of online information, people found the best way to make mocha pot coffee. the coffee no longer has an unacceptable negative taste. So its sales "rub" for a time, it went up! The reason why this "small pot" is so popular today, in addition to the right price, is inseparable from its main function-to be able to produce strong coffee similar to that of concentrated coffee! With grease, and relatively rich.

But you know, the coffee made by the mocha pot can only be called mocha pot coffee, not one of the espresso. After all, whether it is the quality of oil or the concentration of coffee, there is still a certain gap between the mocha pot and the coffee maker! But on second thought, if you want to make an authentic, high-quality espresso, you usually need to invest a lot of money to buy an espresso machine that makes Italian concentration. even the price of a home machine will go up to thousands of yuan! However, a few hundred yuan single-valve mocha pot can make their 60-70% level of quality, not to mention it has a double valve, double-valve mocha pot can make more lasting oil, higher quality full-bodied coffee! Simply don't smell too good!

So we can not look at consumers from the perspective of baristas, even if the coffee made by mocha pots does not meet the concentration standards that baristas think, but for consumers, compared with the same period last year, it is the most appropriate choice!

So, what kind of coffee beans are suitable for mocha pots? It is reasonable that the mocha pot can extract coffee beans at all roasting levels, and because they can, there is no most suitable choice. But if conditions are added to the extraction of this cup of coffee, there will be a priority in the choice of coffee beans.

The most interesting thing about the mocha pot is that it can produce oil similar to espresso. The main use of this oil is not only to improve the taste, but also an auxiliary "artifact" to look good. Therefore, if the additional condition is to make the coffee extracted from the mocha pot with "rich fat", or if you want to make it into a milk coffee to drink, then Qianjie Association recommends that you prefer medium-and deep-roasted coffee beans!

Due to the deep roasting of this kind of coffee beans, the extracted coffee will have a strong scorched flavor and will not be easily covered by the taste of milk! And, because it contains a lot of gas, the extracted coffee will also contain very rich oil. Well, there are two directions to choose in this respect. One is the medium and deep baked beans, which are mainly produced in Brazil, Mantenin and Colombia. They have rich flavors such as dark chocolate and nuts, which are very suitable for the production of milk coffee. The other direction is to directly choose Italian beans. This kind of coffee beans are originally specially prepared for the concentrated production of Italian machines, not only in terms of taste and flavor, but also at a much more suitable price than single beans.

If you want a fruity and fresh flavor, you can choose medium and light baked beans, which are not roasted deeply and retain a lot of sour substances. The mocha pot coffee made with it will have a very rich sweet and sour taste.
