30 Sep Bowling Green, It’s time to celebrate coffee!
October 1 is International Coffee Day, a day celebrated around the world. Each year, the , the founder of the holiday, recognizes a different part of the coffee industry. This year, the holiday is focused on the farmers who produce the beans.
Farmers go through six different stages before the beans are sent to market:
- picking the cherries (what a coffee bean is called when it’s still on the tree);
- washing to remove the outer skin of the cherry;
- drying the beans;
- grading the beans based on size, where and at what altitude they were grown and how they were prepared and picked;
- roasting; and
- cupping or assessing coffee according to sweetness, acidity, mouthfeel, balance and flavor.
A bean-to-cup machine uses a built-in grinder to deliver freshly ground and brewed coffee. As with traditional single-serve machines, only one cup can be brewed at a time, but Bowling Green employees have the option to make a variety of espresso-based, specialty beverages.
There’s one other thing to remember when choosing a brewer. It’s important to understand the steps involved to keep your machine in top shape. Not only will regular maintenance extend the life of the machine, but it will impact the taste of everyone’s coffee.
But don’t worry, Van Vending Service can help your facility/office manager choose the best brewer for your organization, perform required maintenance and create a customized refreshment menu that meets everyone’s snack and beverage needs.
