Australia’s Coffee Show

Following the overwhelming success of the 2013 Melbourne International coffee Expo, the 2014 show is set to continue as the largest and most dynamic coffee event for the coffee industry in the Australasian region. MICE2014 will again bring the industry together, officially commencing with the Global Coffee Review Leaders Symposium, where the industry’s most influential voices gather from around the globe to discuss pressing issues around the growth and development of the international coffee industry.

Then the fun begins at MICE2014, a dedicated four-day event showcasing 150 exhibitors. We will continue to build on the features that have made previous events successful for sponsors, exhibitors and attendees. The region’s business leaders will come together to educate, inform, network and do business.

MICE2014 will proudly host the World Latte Art, World Coffee in Good Spirits and World Cup Tasters Championships in conjunction with the AASCA coffee championships, including the prestigious Australian Barista Championship, amongst other events. With MICE bringing these globally recognised events to Melbourne, we can again showcase our specialty coffee scene and cement its growing reputation as one of the best in the world. The four-day expo also provides an opportunity to attend satellite events in and around Melbourne, including roasting workshops, café tours, and endless networking opportunities to meet and greet the world’s top coffee industry personalities and decision-makers.

Organic Coffee Pods

Organic coffee pods are individual portions of coffee grounds, which are pre-sealed in a coffee filter paper.

They are similar to tea bags, which can be dipped into hot water to brew a cup of tea. But coffee pods need to be dropped into a special coffee pot that drips very hot water on the pod, providing you with a cup of freshly brewed coffee in about thirty seconds.  It is a quick, neat, and easy way to get a fresh brewed cup of coffee with every cup you drink.  There is a huge variety of flavours available to the coffee connoisseur. The ten most popular flavours are almond, cinnamon, caramel, chocolate, French vanilla, hazelnut, Irish cream, peppermint, espresso, and cappuccino.  But there are many, many more, and new combinations pop up all the time.

If you check online under organic coffee pods, you will discover hundreds of distributors, each with their own lines of coffee and choices of flavours.  You will be able to find both organic and traditional, the various roast choices and any number of flavours to pick from.  Many people, once they have tried organic coffee pods, feel that making coffee by the pot full gives you a lacklustre, stale cup of java.

They also love the convenience of not having to deal with loose coffee messes. These pods are packaged in packages of six, sixteen, or twenty-five single pods, depending on what brand you buy, and can be purchased in one flavour or style or in a mixed variety.  The pods are sixty-two mm wide and weigh seven grams each. They brew one cup of coffee per pod.

So what are the real advantages of organic coffee pods as compared to buying it loose and by the pound? The types of roast available are light, medium, dark, flavoured, and decaffeinated.  This is true of both kinds of packaging. For one thing, you won’t need a coffee grinder to get a fresh brewed cup of coffee. It is as easy to use as a tea bag, and gives you the taste of fresh home brewed coffee. And it is so much less messy than loose grounds are. The coffeemaker is also simple and easy to use.

Let’s face it. If you want a consistent, perfect cup of coffee every time, using organic coffee pods is the way to do it. There will be no mess, no waste, and the perfect taste every time you pour a cup of java!

Brewing A Great Cup Of Coffee

Today, I will propose to you how to make a great cup of coffee. You can do it. There are a few secrets to the process. I will share these with you.

Start with the bean and pick your roast. Quality coffee can only come from a quality coffee bean that is properly roasted. The process of roasting a coffee bean is complex and can result in a given bean tasting very different depending on how it is roasted. If you desire a strong intense flavor to your coffee, choose a dark roast (ex: French Roast). If you like to a light flavor, less intense, choose a lighter roast.

Never use pre-ground coffee. Pre-ground coffee will lose its flavor and essence within a short period of time. Grinding before you brew will assure you that no flavor is lost due to time.

Always use cold filtered water when brewing your coffee. The water you use represents 98% of your cup of coffee. Filtering the water will remove impurities that could affect the taste. Poor quality water can come from a variety of sources. Example, older house will have older pipes. Theses pipes tend to give the water an off flavor. You will want to remove this by filtering. The basic rule is the better the water, the better the coffee.

Skip the paper filters and go for the gold. Yes, these are 23k gold plated stainless steel filters. Paper filters will influence the flavor of the coffee in a negative manner. The Gold plated filters influence the flavor by allowing natural oils to infiltrate into your brew, adding a level of flavor and aroma you wont find with paper coffee filters. Another plus is that these filters can be reused over and over, and will last a very long time. Not only will your coffee be better, but you will be helping the environment by saving on waste.

Never over do it on the add-ins. Cut down on the sugar, cream, and other flavor add-ins to really enjoy the true essence of the brew. If we disguise the coffee to much; we will never know the true taste.

Part of what makes a great cup of coffee is how and when we enjoy it. We all have our favorite time and rituals. For me, nothing beats enjoying a great cup of coffee on a Sunday morning and reading the paper.
