The perfect taste

Pure arabica quality for generations

There is hardly any other name that has defined the taste of coffee for generations as much as Dallmayr prodomo. Many people still swear by “their prodomo” today.

Tourists do not leave the Dallmayr delicatessen in Munich without a pack of it in their luggage as a souvenir. Here, the coffee is scooped by hand out of precious Nymphenburg porcelain vases and weighed out on antique balance scales.

The decaffeinated and the naturally mild varieties complete the Dallmayr prodomo product family.

Premium blend

In Dallmayr prodomo, selected highland coffees from Asia, Africa, and South and Central America come together to form a finely balanced premium blend. The typical taste primarily comes from the arabica coffees from the fertile southern provinces of Ethiopia – the birthplace of coffee. In the highlands here, people harvest the coffee cherries which primarily grow in small plantations. After the harvest, they are “washed” in a special procedure, which also refines the green coffee.

The skill is, in spite of different crop yields, to always achieve the same taste profile which the Dallmayr prodomo fans love so much.

We remain faithful to our high standards:

Our tips for preparation

Dallmayr prodomo is perfect for the traditional preparation of filter coffee – whether it is prepared in a filter machine or with a manual filter – but also, as a whole bean, for fully automatic coffee machines or a French press (coarse grind).

Dallmayr prodomo as whole beans is perfect for the preparation of a “traditional long coffee” in a fully automatic machine, without a crema.

Volker-Meyer Lücke’s recommendation for the
grinding level on a fully automatic machine.

The grinding level determines the duration of the extraction – the time it takes for the water to pass through the coffee. If the coffee is ground too finely, the water is in contact with the ground coffee for too long and the result may taste slightly harsh and bitter. If the grind is too coarse, on the other hand, the water passes through the ground coffee too quickly and the coffee will be too thin.

If the finished coffee is discharged too slowly, simply set a coarser grinding level. If it is discharged too quickly, select a finer grinding level.

The fresher, the better

Roasted coffee is a sensitive natural product. Once the pack has been opened, both whole beans and ground coffee will lose their aroma day by day. Coffee also quickly absorbs other aromas.

Therefore, store open coffee as follows:
  • Never together with other strong-smelling food
  • Protected from sunlight and moisture
  • Ideally in the original packaging (do not decant)
  • In a fridge or even better a freezer

Expert interview: Filter coffee

It has long been experiencing a revival. Often disguised by terms such as “pour over coffee” or “brewed coffee”, good old filter coffee has crept into the world’s hot spots again. There have been brew bars in New York, London, Stockholm and Berlin for a long time now. In the food service industry or at home, with a porcelain filter or a Chemex pot: filter coffee is “in” again.

Mr Meyer-Lücke, what is special about filter coffee?

It is exciting for me because it enables me, as a coffee lover, to better control and influence the result. From the selection of the beans, the grinding level and the water temperature to the dosage. The filter paper retains the oils and fat contained in the coffee, which is why a freshly brewed cup of filter coffee has a smooth, clear surface. The result is convincing: good beans prepared as filter coffee optimally release their aroma.

Is this really a new trend?

Filter coffee was never really out of fashion. In most German households, people still mainly consume filter coffee. However, what is moving back into the limelight is an awareness of what is essential, with fewer frills, and an interest in the origin of the beans, their preparation and roasting. Filter coffee is losing its slightly out-dated image; it is a trend and cult at the same time. A number of coffee shops, trendy cafés and bars and Michelin-starred restaurants now rely on “brewed coffee”. “Back to the roots” is the motto here.

How do I prepare the perfect cup of filter coffee?

Take 7 to 12 grams of coffee, depending on the size of the cup. The general rule is: the fresher, the better. Fold the filter paper at the edges, place it in the filter and moisten it well with hot water. This avoids a possible taste of paper and causes the pores of the filter paper to open up. Then pour in the ground coffee and pour hot, but no longer boiling water over it. The perfect temperature is slightly over 90°C.

What beans do you enjoy in filter coffee?

It is no coincidence that Dallmayr prodomo is the favourite coffee of generations of coffee fans. Freshly filtered, I regard it as a real classic. I personally like single origin coffees and keep changing the variety I drink. The Dallmayr coffee rarities are perfect for use as filter coffee, as even laypeople can taste the difference here. Gran Verde has a delicately nutty flavour, KILIMANJARO a slightly floral note and NEIVA has citrus aromas. My tip: Buy beans fresh from the vase in the Dallmayr Coffee Department, have them ground specially for filtering and simply try a new variety.

Coffee essence

Heat up the cream, add the coffee beans and allow the mixture to steep. After 10 minutes, sieve the cream to remove the coffee beans. Allow the coffee cream to cool down.

Cake mixture

Stir together the butter, sugar, vanilla pulp, lemon zest and a pinch of salt until smooth, and then gradually mix in five egg yolks.

Once cooled, stir the coffee essence bit by bit into the cake mixture, alternating with the flour and the cornflour.

Whisk the egg white with the sugar and a pinch of salt until stiff, and then fold into the dough.

Put a small part of this mixture aside for the top layer.

Pour this darker coffee cake mixture into the cups. Finally, put the light coffee cake mixture on over this.

Bake at approx. 160°C for 25 - 30 minutes in a convection oven, leave to cool slightly and eat warm.
