Tayf's Introduction To Coffee

February 8, 2022

Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages on the planet. Egypt's scene is developing in a distinctive way. At Tayf, we are quite fond of spectacular coffee. We have been tracing the whole world for coffee franchise opportunities that will add value to the Egyptian market.

Coffee’s success as a beverage is directly associated with both the caffeine it harbours and its sensory pleasure. Coffee lovers have come to associate the energising lift of the caffeine with the richness and aroma of the beverage that delivers it. Coffee is defined by several characteristics, and each origin has its own characteristics. Below is a sneak peak of the different flavours that could be explored.

Coffee’s Journey

Coffee is produced from the seeds of a fruit that grows in specific regions. The process of turning those seeds into a beverage is a complex process, maybe one of the most complex for a major beverage. Coffee’s popularity is attributed to its strong effect, which is produced by the caffeine it contains.

One of many myths about the discovery of coffee is from Ethiopian culture and its association with Kaldi. Kaldi was an Arab goatherd who, while walking, got the feeling that his goats were dancing. He found out that they were feeding some berries. When he tried these berries, he got a sense of exhilaration and proclaimed his discovery to the world.

Fast forward to what is happening now…

Speciality coffee places are growing like never before. Specialty coffee exists now because of the dedication and hard work of people who have spent their lifetimes mastering each phase of the coffee chain. When all parties work together in harmony, you end up with a daily dose of happiness.

Speciality coffee is not just about the quality of coffee, it’s about many more. It’s about:

  • Coffee Farming

Great coffee starts with the farmers, who might spend a lot of time perfecting their approach to producing high-quality coffee. Therefore, it’s important to know where the coffee comes from and the circumstances of each farm. Also, the conditions of the labour should be thoroughly examined to make sure that it is a fair trade. Fair trade is also about making sure that each party is compensated fairly for their production.

  • Art of Roasting

Coffee roasting is not just about knowing how to use a roasting machine. It’s about knowing the characteristics of the selected coffee. After the selection of great quality beans, it’s important to define the roasting profile. Roasting profiles are the roaster’s way of knowing how to unlock those characteristics as well as adapting to the consumer's taste.

  • Coffee Brewing

After roasting the coffee, comes the importance of using the appropriate brewing method. Here comes the knowledge of the beans’ origins and their flavour profiles to decide which methods would be best for them. Each part of the process is about reaching the full potential of the beans’ flavours.

And finally, it is about you. It’s for the coffee enthusiast and lover who would appreciate the daily dose of a cup from heaven. It’s about your decision to support ethical trading and appreciate all the hard work it takes and the years that the cherry will take just for you to be happy.

Something big is coming your way! Stay tuned!
