One of the best things about coffee is the multiple ways it can be grown, roasted, ground, brewed and consumed. No matter your taste preference, there’s a brand of coffee and style of preparation to suit your palette. At Corporate Coffee, we pride ourselves on offering a range of coffee machine setups for your office that will ensure all of your employees are happy. Today, however, we’re putting the spotlight on filter coffee – an aromatic and healthy way of preparing coffee. Want to know more? Keep reading to find out exactly why filter coffee should be your preferred morning cup.
The perfect aroma
Nothing beats the smell of a fresh cup, and nothing is more aromatic than filter coffee. This is due in part to the brewing process. Unlike espresso-style coffee, filter coffee involves placing pouches of coffee grounds into boiling water. As the grounds steep in the water, they release a rich and inviting aroma. The aromatic style of brewing is the perfect way to start your day and creates a welcoming atmosphere in the office.
The healthier way to consume coffee
We already know there are numerous health benefits to drinking coffee, but did you know filter brewed coffee is considered one of the healthiest ways to prepare your daily dose of caffeine?
According to the American Heart Association, adding too much milk or sweeteners like flavoured syrups or sugar can negate the health benefits of drinking coffee. However, the slow brewing process of filter coffee creates a smooth flavour that typically doesn’t require much milk or sugar. What’s more, the filter itself helps remove the oily component in coffee grounds which can cause cholesterol levels to rise.
The good news doesn’t stop there – a recent study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology found that filter coffee could be better for the health of your heart, particularly for older people. Researchers analysed the survey responses of more than 500,000 healthy coffee drinkers who were followed for about 20 years. People who drank one to four cups of coffee, particularly filtered coffee, had lower rates of artery disease and death, even those over 60 years old.
Easy to make and share with others
Having an Espresso-style coffee machine in the office is a fantastic way to create a range of different styles of coffee. However, they require a certain amount of knowledge and skill to use. One of the great things about filtered coffee is how easy it is to prepare. Our Brew 151, Ambassador and Brewmatic 508 Bulk Brewer filter coffee machines make brewing a fresh cuppa easy.
The Brew 151 is perfect for busy office setups where you need to prepare multiple coffees at once. The pre-portioned Fairtrade coffee pouches ensure consistent coffee quality at every brew, and the thermal flasks or glass canisters with thermal heater will keep your coffee hot for up to 4 hours.
After a more flexible coffee machine set up? The Ambassador is perfect for creating a fresh cup if and when you need it. Thanks to the pre-packed filters, there is no coffee waste and its portable airpots maintain drinking temperature for over 4 hours.
For big offices with big coffee needs, we recommend the Brew 508 Bulk Brewer set up. Capable of producing 125+ cups a day or 30 litres per hour. Your delicious filter coffee is kept toasty warm in a large, 8 litre portable airpot, making it perfect for serving during meetings or conferences.
