The Coffee Bar at The Bikery
Exceptional gourmet coffee and tea paired with creative pastry
Every great cup of coffee is a little miracle. Coffee is grown in many of the most remote and rugged places on earth and great care must be taken from planting the seedling to picking the ripe coffee cherry. So much can go wrong - from insect damage to drought and coffee diseases to picking green fruit or bad weather delaying the drying process. After a long journey the green coffee beans must be stored well and then roasted just before the coffee is to be brewed. The coffee roaster uses great skill in bringing out everything that specific coffee has to offer. Then after a period of "degassing" which allows the coffee to give up excess carbon dioxide, the coffee flavors can be extracted using filtered water at precisely the right temperature. If the coffee is ground too fine it will be bitter and if ground too coarse it will be sour and if the grinder is of poor quality it could be both! The coffee brewing equipment must be sparkling clean and the amount of time the coffee is in contact with the water is critical.
If everything goes right the results can be truly amazing!
