Bodecker Brewed has chosen a filter that contains some cellulose and paper fibers that create a porosity that allows all the critical ingredients in coffee to flow through to the cup, while only removing a small portion of the oils. This gives the coffee great balance and flavour.
To create the best cup of coffee, the proper temperature and pressure are required to facilitate the proper extraction of the coffee. For a traditional style North American coffee, an additional support had to be developed for the filter medium during the brew cycle. This support had to add strength while not adding to the filtration of the coffee. With this careful balance of pressure and filter medium we discovered that the true flavour of coffee was created at a lower brewing temperature that the experts had felt was ideal. If you test your Bodecker Brewer at higher temperature, you will notice an over extraction and an introduction of some bitterness in taste common to most brewing processes.
As our North American market becomes more aware of superior coffee tastes, espresso and cappuccino have become more prevalent and desired in the office environment. The only truly acceptable way to make cappuccino is with an espresso machine which is quite costly and requires a significant amount of maintenance and skill to derive the proper end result.
The espresso that we create is not of the Italian variety requiring a level of Robusta coffee to create a crema and a very strong flavour. Rather, we have created more of a North American espresso by utilizing Arabica beans exclusively. The resulting brew is tasteful, creamy, consistent and convenient. By experimenting with your Bodecker brewer, you can create a custom cup of coffee or espresso to your liking by simply adjusting the brewing cycle or timing as you brew.
