GAGGIA AND OUR COFFEE PARTNERS
Gaggia Coffees are available in beans, ground and pods. This page provides information about our coffees. We also actively encourage you to try different coffees from our coffee partners who sell their own coffees.
Coffee as a beverage is prepared from the roasted seeds of a fruit from a coffee plant. The two most common sources of coffee beans are the highly regarded Coffea ARABICA, and the other called "ROBUSTA". The latter is more robust and can grow in more difficult conditions and has a more bitter taste. Coffee plants are cultivated in more than 70 countries, including Latin America, Southeast Asia, and Africa, typically 500 miles either side of the equator.Arabica coffees grow at a higher altitude - about 4000 feet above sea level. Robusta coffees grow at 1500 - 2000 feet above sea level. Once ripe, coffee "berries" are picked, processed and dried to yield the seeds inside. The seeds are then roasted to varying degrees, depending on the desired flavour, before being ground and brewed to create coffee.
Arabica Coffees can take a longer time to produce and generally are larger in size than the Robusta coffees. The taste of coffees are mainly due to chemical composition of the soil and can vary from place to place and also at different altitudes. Acidity, bitterness, earthiness, mint, Chocolate, fruity are some of the descriptions of the taste in coffee. Mixing and Blending different coffees from different plantations can achieve varying blends of coffee. As taste is subjective, it is difficult to say which is a better blend of coffee. Usually, Arabica coffees tend to be popular for people starting out in coffee, although it is only a guide.
Roasting the coffee changes the taste of the coffee by bringing out flavours and bitterness depending on the temperature and time the coffee is roasted.
