1st In Coffee Helped Me Find The Perfect Christmas Gifts For My “Fussy” Daughters

Capresso Coffee Team Therm Coffee MakerI’ve been doing a lot of research about coffee makers lately, trying to find the perfect Christmas gifts for my daughters.  A great solution finally came to me via “1st in Coffee” website. One daughter, an engineer, needed a machine that could be programmed the night before, does the grinding for a fresh aromatic cup that’s ready when she steps into the kitchen.  She’s very fussy about buying the best coffee brands and is a bit of an airhead when it comes to preparing it at home.  She burned up one coffee maker by forgetting to turn it off before leaving for work.  The Capresso Team GS coffee maker and grinder turns itself off automatically.

The Capresso Coffee Team Therm is the only coffee maker/conical burr grinder combination to feature a stainless steel vacuum carafe to keep coffee hot and fresh for hours after brewing. The conical burr grinder grinds slowly to impart minimal heat, preserving coffee aroma. The Capresso Coffee Team Therm features patented technology allowing it to grind coffee directly into the filter basket, then automatically swings into place and begins the brewing process.

I found that I could order the Capresso on line and have it shipped directly to my daughter in time for the holidays.  They didn’t even charge for shipping!  She and her husband can have their fresh coffee at home and have enough to take along on their drive to work.  They won’t have to stop at an espresso shop every morning and wait in line.

I can’t wait until they see their new machine.  It’s very attractive and so easy to use and should impress the most discriminating consumer.

1st In Coffee – Espresso Making As An Art Form

Jura Capresso ENA 3 Nov 10, 2009 blogOne of my favorite “art’ forms is the art of espresso making.  Most of us know that we choose our favorite coffee shop for it’s flavors, aromas, ambiance, and convenient location.  Another reason, for me, was the well-trained barista at my favorite shop.  He could make the most consistent, perfect shots topped with a rich crema and he knew how to make the cool designs on top with the froth that topped my drinks.

I finally asked what his secret was and he said that it just took a little practice.  Then he showed me some techniques.  Of course, I ran home and tried many times and failed to make even the simplest design.  His instructions didn’t help at all when I tried to duplicate his work on my home machine.  I was pretty sure he was some kind of magician.espresso art blog Nov. 10, 2009

After listening to me complain, he finally convinced me that I needed to have a more professional espresso machine if I expected to get the results I was looking for.  He helped me do some research and I finally chose a Jura espresso machine. We found it on a website that he said his shop often used to purchase supplies and equipment called “1st in Coffee”.  I chose a mid-priced home machine (Jura Capresso ENA 3) because he thought it would serve my purpose well. I was delighted to find that the machine does all I need and more.  It even grinds the coffee and has a pressurized pump that helps provide the quality of shots I was looking for.  Also, I can now do the frothing “art” like a pro!  Thanks to Andy, my favorite barista!  Of course I still stop in now and then, but I make most of my espresso at home now with great results.

1st in Coffee Tip: Take Good Care Of Your Espresso Machine And Steamer

cafiza_20oz Photo for Nov 9 2009 Blog“We’ve been through a few home espresso machines over the years before we decided to spend a little more and get closer to a commercial type of machine.  I worked as a barista for several years at a local shop and wanted to duplicate the quality of shots we made there.  We finally settled on a “Jura” semi-automatic machine.  Since then, every one in my family has become professional at making latte’s and cappuccinos.

One thing I learned while working in the coffee business was to take care of the espresso machine and steamer.  We did a daily cleaning at the shop because of the volume business.  At home, I make it a regular routine on the first of each month to do the cleaning of our machine.  The Jura espresso machine came with a small disc and instructions that show how to back-flush and clean with a product we can order on line called “Cafiza”.  Cafiza works well for all brands of espresso machines.

The company we order from (1st in Coffee) suggests cleaning our machinery once every few months.  However, we have a large family and use our machine several times daily, so we need to do it more often.  It’s such an easy chore, and I know that it will keep our equipment in good working order for a long time.”

1st In Coffee – French Presses – Taking the Plunge

Bodum Chambord 12 French PressSome moments I just yearn for a good cup of coffee.  Now sometimes, I just make an Americano – a shot of espresso, just adding hot water to my desired strength.  And this works nicely.

But like I said, some moments I just yearn for a good cup of coffee.  And this is where my trusty old French Press comes in.  It’s really something simple to use, and truly something of a treat for you and your guests.

Freshly grind your coffee beans to a coarse setting (you are grinding coffee beans as you need them, right)?   Scoop one tablespoon for each 4oz of water in the press.  Add hot water and place the lid and plunger at the top.  Let it steep between 2-4 minutes, depending on how strong you like your cuppa.  Then take the plunge.  Slowly depress the plunger till it reaches the bottom.  Remember, slow and steady wins the race.

Then pour into your favorite beverage vessel, relax, breathe in the robust aroma and enjoy.  Aaahh.

 Holiday Tip: Last year, I had a French Press at each place setting for the dessert portion of our holiday party.  Not only did each of our guests get to experiment and enjoy this traditional method of brewing coffee, but they also got to take the French Presses home, as this was their holiday gift.  Now that’s a double-good cup of coffee.

1st In Coffee – Regular Maintenance Keeps Your Espresso Machine Investment Humming

Capresso Water FiltersJust like I’ve got to take my car into the dealership on a regular basis to keep my warranty alive and kicking, I’ve set-up a schedule to keep my espresso machine humming smoothly (keep in mind, each brand will differ in terms of actual usage, so just consult your manual).

 Water filters have the best bang-for-your-buck return.  They keep the machine from clogging up from hard-water deposits which definitely results in a longer life

Plus they don’t cost much upfront, which means less money spent on replacements, which results is more money in your pocket.

Now, if you’ve been complacent in your filter program, you might have to shell out some dollars for decalcifies – these are the formulas that help remove hard water deposits and keep the internals running at optimal levels.  And yes, they are available in non-toxic, biodegradable compositions.  You can usually also get them as part of a Maintenance Kit that provides brushes, descalers and filters.

These are simple and inexpensive methods of extending the life of your Espresso Machine, and in these times, every penny counts.  Besides, the added bonus of utilizing better water through a better-working machine is a way better tasting espresso – and isn’t that the reason why an espresso machine is on your counter in the first place.

1st In Coffee – Espresso Machines For Home Office

Home Office October 27th 2009 Photo.jpg CroppedWorking from home is definitely an acquired skill.  While it may seem like a sweet life not having to get up early, no need for a shower, being able to answer your emails in your pj’s, taking calls with bed-head, etc., etc., trust me when I say, it’s not all that.

For one thing, you are on your own.  I mean alone and on your own.  The entire day.  And while it’s nice to be able to set your own schedule, you have to be extremely disciplined to keep to your own schedule.  The TV’s always a temptation.  You can easily fritter away an entire day just channel surfing.  Talking about surfing, the World Wide Web is a web waiting to entangle you in its mindless maze of lost hours.  And finally, there’s the fridge.  Ouch!  Always there to tempt with promises of comfort, of indulgence, but really just to keep you away from the work at hand.
 
I recently was able to defeat this final temptation with the help of my trusty Nespresso machine.  I keep it with me in the office.  And anytime I feel tempted for something sweet, something to drink or something to indulge in, I just reach over and start another espresso or latte.  This keeps me at my desk, keeps me feeling satisfied and helps me stay on track with my schedule.

If only Nespresso had crossed my paths many moons ago, I may have actually finished that screenplay I started in college.

Shop 1st In Coffee For This Year’s Corporate Gifts

christmas-gifts under the treeOkay, it’s that time of the year where you’ve got to go through the list of your best customers, and send them a “thank you for your business” gift. You want to give something really nice that’s not going to “break the bank” financially.

But what to get them this year?  How about some more gold-plated pens to add to their burgeoning collection of fine writing instruments, or more custom-engraved plaques to be hung in the executive washrooms?   Instead of these, dare I say, “boring” gifts, how about something exciting, unique and truly useful?  What about a super-cool espresso machine?

1st In Coffee
is here to help you chose a gift, an espresso machine, a coffee grinder, espresso beans,  some illy coffee, something that will be appreciated by your client and will be used for years to come.

Think about this.  Not only a sparkling new piece of office equipment that looks stylish and gets the oohs and aahs from the employees.  But also a wonderful item of technology that enhances employee satisfaction and increases productivity.  Yes, increases productivity.  Check this out.

Imagine morning meetings where everyone shows up on time because they did not have to stop at the local coffee shop on their way in to work.  And imagine the smiles as the espresso machine automatically pours their favorite latte or cappuccino.  Think about the energy and buzz throughout the office all morning long.  Then, just as the afternoon lag begins to set-in, imagine what a wonderfully satisfying double-shot espresso would do for the rest of the day.

Giving the gift of enhanced employee satisfaction and increased productivity, not only greatly improves your best customers’ own business, it would no doubt greatly improve the chances of they becoming your best customers again…next year.

Thanksgiving Recipes

Nespresso Espresso Machine

Nespresso Espresso Machine - makes great espresso for Thanksgiving Day desserts

I love chocolate desserts.  I really, really love chocolate/coffee desserts.  Wow, such a heavenly combination.

Now, I’ve tried countless recipes for espresso/ coffee desserts and for the most part, they usually use espresso beans either crushed or finely ground.  And always the same result, somewhat grainy, something akin to cracked pepper that catches you by surprise.  Not good.

The better way to go is to use fresh brewed espresso (not coffee).  Not only does it mix better with most recipes, the taste that is acquired from a well-balanced espresso blend, and the oils and crema from the bean itself provide the perfect ingredient for the best of your recipes.

And here’s a simple Thanksgiving Dessert recipe I recently discovered:

Espresso Trifle
In a saucepan, bring Water, Sugar and Fresh-Brewed Espresso to a boil.
Leave to cool.
Layer Pound Cake, Vanilla Pudding and Shaved Chocolate in either Individual Glasses or a Large Dish.
Pour the cooled Espresso syrup over the Trifle.
Decorate with whipped cream and serve.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Plan Ahead For An “Un-Traditional” Traditional Thanksgiving

thanksgiving-feast 2Okay, I’m not one for same old, same old, with Thanksgiving around the corner, just know one thing; I’m really not that into “traditional” traditions.

I’m not totally against traditions.  I just like my own cool traditions.  One of my “cool” family traditions is the “Grand Finale! ” Something I’ve been offering for many years now.

My “Grand Finale” is a buffet  decorated for the season and set with our favorite desserts, holiday plates, silverware, coffee cups, an assortment of “enhancements” like Cinnamon Sticks, Nutmeg, Old Spices, Rock Sugar, Whipped Cream, Pumpkin Cream Pumpkin Pie, cranberries, stuffing, turkey sweet potatoes and smack, bang in the middle of the display…

my Jura Capresso Espresso Machine served with illy coffee.

For one thing, ours used to be the only Thanksgiving Dinner that offered custom-made Espresso drinks to complete the feast.  I say “used to be” because just like traditions, it seems to have passed on to family and friends – now they all seem to be offering the Grand Finish at Thanksgiving.

 Not that I mind, after all, that’s what traditions are all about.  Happy Thanksgiving.
