Working as the assistant manager at Starbucks Reserve™ Berjaya Times Square, Remy demonstrates his skills and passion through the craft of coffee brewing.
And in here, we learn on the process of the Pour – Over brewing method where customer can experience a personal coffee chat session with the Coffee Masters at any Starbucks Reserve Outlet. And we had learned that the Pourover coffee starts with (freshly) ground coffee, a filter, and a filter holder, often called a ‘pourover dripper.’ At the most basic level, pourover brewing involves pouring water over and through the grounds to extract the coffee flavors into your cup or serving vessel.
And next, we also get to know about one of the seven brewing methods available is using the Espresso Machine. And this Black Eagle Espresso Machine extracts the finest taste of espresso which is the key ingredients for various coffee beverage.
Last but not least, Siphon is one of the attractive and eye-catching way of getting your favourite cup of coffee. And in Starbucks, they are using the vacuum filtration to push the extremely hot water through a bed of freshly ground coffee. Using the paper filter, it actually enhanced the extraction time and it brings you a delicate cup of coffee that mesmerizes the senses.
