Coffee accents get revealed when they are ground into the form that we consume. But how much does the cloth filter factor add to it? Covering all dimensions and discovering a few along the way, this is a blog to help you understand just that.
When a story comes searching for you, you can’t stop living and revelling in it. A small cup of coffee can tell a story, but a coffee farmer can tell a lot more. “When technicalities get too hard to keep track of, just breathe and start again”, says Rajendra, the mind and soul behind LetsKauphy. From the roads of a bustling Vijayawada to the calm serene forests of Araku, love and coffee always found a way for him. He’s lived a colorful life and one such chronicle is this little snippet from the storyteller himself, lived once and more.
The tricky thing for us as consumers is to understand where to start. The profitability crisis is driving more and more coffee producers out of the industry. Saving coffee will take money, it will take efforts but more than all of that, it will take teamwork. Growing coffee in forests instead of exclusive coffee farms has been a step in the right direction. The money will come from a simple carbon tax, uniformly applied carbon tax will make a ripple effect in generating the revenue for environmental preservation. Coffee production has saved forests in Ethiopia, the diversity is affected but if it wasn't for the caffeinated cup of magic, there wouldn't even be a forest.

Until now we saw how a story is introduced to us, we understand how blurry our eyes and how sandy our paths have been with acknowledging impact. That is obviously a far cry from addressing the same impact of cumulated behaviours and disdain. Keen observations about little details give an idea or two, sometimes. Changes are not always measurable, and for that reason, we have gone to root to ask the questions that matter.

A carafe is a glass or metal container usually with a handle which is used to serve water, coffee, wine and other drinks. Many people use carafe for their brewed coffee for keeping it warm or as a secondary container to for serving.

In this blog, read about why you should use carafe while brewing coffee and difference between thermal and glass carafe

We often hear about investments that pay dividends down the road, a one time cost of a commodity spreading over a much longer period makes the cost, not as intimidating. Making the most of what we have and tweaking it to suit us is the best way to go on with life sometimes and businesses are learning to apply that small lesson of frugality too.

Whenever a discussion is about the environment, a loss of words. A couple of degrees change doesn't seem a lot when it's a cosy room, but when it is about the slight difference between ice and water, it does. Climate change is not about just those 2 degrees, but about the change in various parameters that a plant grows, prospers and flourishes in. The phenomenon has affected water availability which in turn reduces soil quality, the uneven and unpredictable weathers have brought in a lot of physiological stress for the growth of the plant; all of which combine to cause a change in life cycles and quality of the coffee plant.

Brewing specialty coffee can be very overwhelming. Right from choosing good beans, desired grind size, capable equipment, brewing method and extraction time; a lot of things matter. But what's great is, you can easily simplify these methods. In this blog, we will give you a headstart on starting your specialty coffee journey.

May has been an exciting month for new coffees as the 2021 harvest is now accessible to everyone. In this blog we tried to pick a handful of our favourite coffee from a majority of them. Let us know which one is your favourite.

Sipping the cup of coffee that we just brew a second back, we can give ourselves a line that it could be better, and to be real from the heart to heart, it can be. So let's take a small walk into the blends and aromas of coffee, and tell each other a few tricks we pick up on the way back. Here's our attempt at giving you our secrets.

Having coffee is a very personalised affair because you'd have people go out for coffee and make the best memories they'd talk about forever or you'd rather mellow a day down with a cup of coffee because what else is as good a mood lifter. In the same sense, choosing the right filter too is a very subjective process. A version of my favourite coffee could be very different from your favourite coffee, with plenty of variables to play around with as well, my favourite brewing method could be vastly different from yours even though we use the same brewing equipment. Similarly, when it comes to my favourite filter, it might not be your preferred taste and it's completely okay. On top of that our preferred brewing filter changes due to a lot of circumstances as well, at the core of all this is the mood a particular coffee sets. [location, time, availability, state of mind, and feasibility.]

No story starts midway, and no day starts without a coffee, often lost in transition amidst all the noise frappes and mochaccinos make is the warmth of an early morning kaapi that everyone wakes up to.

Brewing is a slow process and it’s all about the anticipation that makes it a wonderful little experience when the brew hits your lips. For starters, we’ve to find what the perfect ratio is and for us after quite a few hits and misses we’ve come down to a brewing time of 16 hours at a ratio of 1 to 14 where it stands for 70 grams of coffee for 1000 millilitres of water, a coarse grind of course. With the prerequisites in place, we can start with the procedure.

We compared the different type of filters in our latest blog at Wobh journal. There is extremely high adoption of paper filters when compared to metal and cloth.

But it was extremely overwhelming to decide which type of filter should I use. Paper, metal, and cloth filters are the most common types of filters.
