HOW LONG CAN COFFEE BE STORED?
Unopened and undamaged coffee packs can be stored for up to 24 months at room temperature away from heat sources.
HOW SHOULD COFFEE BE STORED AFTER IT IS OPENED?
Once opened, coffee maintains its properties for about one week, on condition that the pack is tightly closed and that the product is not subject to extreme temperature changes.
In contact with air coffee undergoes a natural oxidation process that causes the product to ‘age’.
WHAT SYSTEMS ARE MOKASIRS PODS AND CAPSULES COMPATIBLE WITH?
Mokasirs portioned coffee is divided into filter paper pods and capsules:
Filter paper pods: E.S.E. (Easy Serving Espresso) system, compatible with all pod machines with 44 mm diameter
Lavazza Espresso Point compatible capsules: These capsules are compatible with the Lavazza Espresso Point system
Nespresso-compatible capsules: These capsules fit perfectly all Nespresso machines, both Krups and De Longhi.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ‘MOKA COFFEEPOT GRIND’ AND THE ‘FILTER GRIND’?
The “moka coffeepot” grind is finer, while the ‘filter coffee’ grind is coarser.
Consequently, coffee made with a moka coffeepot is more concentrated than filter coffee, due to the smaller particles and the greater pressure exerted by the water.
With coffee ground for the filter, on the other hand, the water meets less resistance and the result is a lighter and less intense beverage.
WHAT IS THE PROPER WAY TO MAKE COFFEE WITH A “MOKA COFFEEPOT”?
Fill the base with cold water up to the level of the valve
Insert the filter
Fill the filter completely with ground coffee, but do not press it down
Screw the two parts of the mocha tightly together
Place the coffee maker over a low heat
Once the coffee rises, immediately remove the coffee maker from the heat
Stir the coffee with a teaspoon before pouring it into the cups
Wash the coffee maker with warm water and mild detergent and leave it to dry thoroughly before screwing the two parts together.
HOW IS FILTER COFFEE MADE?
There are several ways to make filter coffee.
If you do not have a special filter coffee machine, to make it at home the simplest and cheapest way is the so-called ‘pour over’ method:
This method of extraction involves the use of a conical filter holder (V60) lined with a paper filter, which is placed over the cup or carafe. Ground coffee is put into the paper filter and then hot water is poured over with a slow spiral movement. The coffee is left to brew for 1-2 minutes, then the filter is removed and the coffee is ready to serve.
