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