The choice of filter coffee extraction method for a coffee shop depends on many factors, such as the type of coffee served, the volume of coffee brewed, and customer preferences.

For a high-volume coffee shop, an automatic coffee maker or large capacity “Pour-over” carafe may be the best choice. These machines can brew large quantities of coffee quickly and consistently, making them ideal for busy coffee shops.

For specialty coffee shops that focus on traditional, high-quality coffee, a “Pour-over” jug or French Press may be the best choice. These methods allow baristas to precisely control brewing time and temperature, resulting in a unique and flavorful cup of coffee.

Ultimately, the choice of extraction method should reflect the type of coffee being served, the volume of coffee being brewed and customer preferences.

A business may choose to offer multiple extraction methods to accommodate a variety of tastes and preferences.

Pour-Over Method Description

A barista serving coffee to customers using the pour-over method typically follows these steps:

  • It grinds the coffee to the correct size for the device.
  • Places a paper or the device’s original filter and places it on top of the carafe or individual coffee mug.
  • Pours hot water over the filter to rinse it and preheat the jug or mug. This also helps remove any paper taste from the filter.
  • Adds the ground coffee to the filter.
  • It starts by pouring a small amount of hot water over the coffee in a circular motion, allowing the coffee to release its aromas. He then proceeds to slowly pour hot water over the coffee, filling the jug or mug at the appropriate time.
  • Removes the dripper from the jug or mug and serves the coffee to the customer.

The pour-over method allows the barista to control the brewing process and produce a high-quality cup of coffee with a unique flavor profile.

This method is often used in specialty coffee shops and is becoming more and more popular among coffee lovers.

French Press Method - Coffee maker for cafe

French Press method description

A barista serving coffee to customers using the French Press method typically follows these steps:

  • He grinds fresh coffee beans to the correct size for the French press.
  • He fills the French press with hot water to preheat it and then drains the water.
  • Adds the ground coffee to the press.
  • He pours hot water over the coffee making sure the water has covered all the coffee.
  • He lets the coffee steep for a few minutes, depending on the desired strength.
  • It pushes the plunger to separate the coffee from the grounds.
  • Pours the coffee into a serving jug or directly into a coffee cup and serves it to the customer.

The French press method produces a full-bodied and rich cup of coffee, with a slightly bolder flavor profile than any other method.

It is a popular method in specialty coffee shops and is often preferred by coffee lovers who appreciate a strong and flavorful coffee.

Another use of the French Press

The establishment may also use a French press to serve tea.

This method is ideal for making loose leaf tea (not in individual bags) because it allows the tea leaves to fully brew and release their flavor.

To use a French press for a tea, simply add the loose tea to the french press and pour hot water over the leaves, allowing them to steep for the desired amount of time.

Then press down on the plunger to separate the tea from the leaves. The resulting tea will be full-bodied and flavorful.

It is important to note that some coffee shops prefer to use a separate tea maker to avoid cross-contamination of coffee and tea flavors.

Additionally, you may need to clean the French press thoroughly between each use to prevent any residual coffee or tea flavors that can affect the taste of subsequent batches.

Some cafes allow customers to use a French press themselves to make their own coffee or tea.

This is often seen in coffee shops or other self-serve establishments, or that have their own community of customers.

By providing customers with a French press, they allow them to enjoy a fresh and flavorful cup of coffee or tea on their own terms, while saving time and labor for the barista.

However, it is important for the business to provide clear instructions on how to use the French press and to regularly clean and maintain their equipment to ensure that the quality of the coffee or tea is not compromised.

Additionally, some cafes may require customers to purchase their own ground coffee or tea leaves, while others may provide them as part of the service.

Overall, allowing customers to use a French press can be a unique and enjoyable experience for coffee and tea lovers and can help create a welcoming and community-focused business atmosphere.

Automatic filter coffee maker.

Businesses sometimes prefer to use automatic filter coffee machines for several reasons:

  • The automatic machines produce consistent and reliable results, ensuring that customers receive a cup of consistent quality coffee every time.
  • They can brew coffee quickly and efficiently, allowing baristas to serve more customers in less time.
  • They are easy to use, requiring minimal training for baristas and minimizing the risk of human error.
  • They can be more efficient in the long run as they don’t require baristas to grind and measure coffee beans by hand and reduce waste from paper filters.

However, there are also some risks associated with using automatic filter coffee machines in a business, such as:

  • The quality of coffee produced by an automatic filter coffee machine may not be as good as coffee produced by manual methods, as the machine may not be able to control the temperature and flow rate of the water as accurately like a barista.
  • They require regular maintenance, including cleaning and replacing parts, to ensure they continue to produce consistent quality coffee.
  • They can break down and need repair, which can be costly and cause business downtime.
  • Limited options: They may not offer as much flexibility as manual methods, as they can only produce one type of coffee at a time, whereas a barista using a manual method can produce a wider variety of coffee beans.

Overall, while automatic filter coffee machines have their advantages, professionals must weigh the benefits against the risks and determine if this type of equipment is the best choice for their business.
