How to Pick the Perfect Coffee Beans for Your Restaurant

Every restaurant strives to stand out from its competitors; from the type of service offered, to the atmosphere, menu, drinks, and even coffee. So, if your restaurant’s coffee service plays an important role or you want to ensure it complements your high standards of quality, keep reading! In this blog, we will offer ideas on how to pick the perfect coffee beans for your restaurant.

Types of Coffee Beans

How many types of coffee beans are there? Though there are many types of coffee beans, they can be broadly classified into two categories: Arabica and Robusta.

  • Arabica: Arabica beans account for about 75-80% of the world’s coffee production. They are grown in cooler climates at higher altitudes and tend to be more delicate and complex in flavor.
  • Robusta: Robusta beans make up the remaining 20-25% of the world’s coffee production. They are grown in hot climates at lower altitudes and have a higher caffeine content than Arabica beans. They also tend to be less complex in flavor, with notes of chocolate or nuttiness.

What Bean Is Right For You

So, how do you pick the perfect coffee beans for your restaurant? It depends on what types of coffee drinks you want to serve and what your customers want. If you’re unsure, you could conduct a survey or ask your customers directly. You could even do a taste test with different beans to see which ones they prefer.

It also depends on what coffee-based drinks you will feature on your menu. Coffee is trendy nowadays and is often viewed as a gourmet drink, thanks to the proliferation of coffee houses, chains, and kiosks. So the question becomes: do you want to offer just one coffee drink, or do you want to offer your customers various options?

Some examples of coffee drinks include :

– Americano: An Americano is made by adding hot water to espresso, resulting in a drink similar to drip coffee.

– Cappuccino: A cappuccino is made with espresso and steamed milk, topped with foam.

– Latte: A latte is made with espresso and steamed milk. It usually has less foam than a cappuccino.

– Macchiato: A macchiato is made with espresso and a small amount of steamed milk, topped with foam.

– Mocha: A mocha consists of espresso, chocolate, and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream (optional).

Based on the type of coffee you want to serve, you might want to consider a specific kind of bean. For example, if you’re offering a mocha, you might want to use Arabica beans because of their complex flavor.

On the other hand, if you want to offer drip coffee or Americanos, Robusta beans might be a better choice since they can stand up to hot water and have higher caffeine content.
