THE CAFE

 
 

Espresso

Invented in Italy, Espresso, in its purest form, is the forcing of water through a weighed dose of finely ground coffee over a certain period of time. These extracted "shots" can be drunk on their own, or used as the base layer of a range of drinks. Espresso drinks are becoming increasingly popular in the specialty coffee movement. Espresso equipment comes in all shapes and sizes, when you are deciding upon machinery, contact our consulting team they will walk you through the process. 

At CRR we use and fully endorse La Marzocco Espresso machines.

Whether its a single group machine for home or office, or a full scale cafe setup, Common Room Roasters is a licenced reseller of La Marzocco, Mazzer, and Curtis Brewing Systems.

 

Kalita Wave Pour-Over

The Kalita Wave pour-over is a Japanese designed brewing system with a flat-bottom design, to give a more even extraction. Using nothing more than a measured dose of water (not boiling) and gravity, this filter system gives a delicate tea-like brew, and showcases the flavor notes and quality of the coffee. At CRR our filter bar is fitted with the amazing Marco SP9 brewing towers, to make sure that every pour over you get at CRR is a top quality cup of Joe. 

We recommend the pour-over to be enjoyed without milk or sugar. The pour-over is ideal for home use.Need a brew kit? Pick one up, here.

 

Aeropress

The Aeropress is a favorite method of ours.

Combining full immersion brew time, with a hand pressed air pocket, this filter method gives off full bodied flavor with a crisp clean finish. Delivering one cup at a time, the Aeropress is ideal for brewing while outdoors or traveling. 

 

Fun fact: Aeropress are also the creators of the 'Aerobie' flying frisbee.
