Espresso based recipes :

Many recipes are based on Espresso or Espresso alternatives and you need to make sure that you’ve got the following all set out properly before you start :

1. Choose freshly roasted Espresso beans.
2. Use clean equipment
3. Use fresh water
4. Use the correct grind and wait until just before making your espresso to grind the beans.
5. Use the right amount of coffee (7 grams per cup of Espresso)
6. Use the right water temperature ideally 194ºF (90º C) at 9 bar atmospheric pressure.
7. Count the right extraction time. This time should be around 25 seconds.
8. Serve immediately after pouring.

After making an Espresso, if a creamy golden froth appears on top, this means that you have made it correctly.

You are now ready to go further.

Here is a list of definitions of the most common Espresso based preparations :

Espresso :
1 to 1 1/2 oz (3 to 4,50 cl) strong, rich coffee topped with golden froth called crema. Espresso should have a strong flavour without excessive acidity or bitterness.
Cappuccino :
a combination of Espresso and hot steamed or foamed milk. The Espresso is served first.
Latte :
Steamed milk topped with foam to which an Espresso is added. The Espresso is added last.
Mocha :
Espresso mixed with steamed milk and chocolate syrup and usually topped with whipped cream sprinkled with cocoa powder.
Steamer :
Steamed milk with flavoured syrup

Cocktails :

A cocktail is not an addition of several liquids.

The balance of the cocktail is fragile and must be distributed properly in three essential areas : the aroma, the taste and the after taste.

One additional notion is also extremely important : the appearance, in other words, the aspect and the colour of the cocktail.

In order to obtain a cocktail, there has to be mixture.

1. Mixture directly in the glass
2. Mixture in “Le Remueur”. This is the most simple shaker. Ice cubes can be put before or after in the container and ingredients poured after that in the order and quantity prescribed. A spoon is used to stir.
3. Mixture in the shaker. The shaker is the best instrument to make a cocktail. It symbolizes the profession of Barman or Bartender. The shaker associates all the ingredients of a recipe (except for the ice cubes no solids, anything hot or any carbonated drinks). The two essential functions of the Shaker are to cool and to make the cocktail homogeneous.
4. Fill a third of the Shaker with ice cubes before adding your ingredients and then shake for about 10 seconds.

As a reminder, 1 oz corresponds roughly to 3 cl and if you happen to use our “1883 de Philibert Routin” pumps, each pump is calibrated to dispense ∏ oz or 1,50 cl with 4 pushes. A flavoured coffee in an 8 to 12 oz of our syrup. Each 70 cl bottle of “1883 de Philibert Routin” generates about 50 drinks.
