What is the best way of preparing this liquid gold?
Get yourself an espresso coffee maker like the one pictured here,as this has proven to be the best for making your Dominican Coffee.
With its patented octagonal shape it makes this maker easy to spot in any little shop. There are many other methods of preparation that would do it, but the coffee just doesn’t taste the same.
You need: fresh roasted and fresh ground coffee and hot brewing water.
Over the centuries experience and experiment has taught that the best liberation of aroma and extraction of flavor is accomplished if the water is just off-boiling as it reaches the ground beans. (92º-96º C).
That is why the “long espresso” brewer used by everyone in the Dominican Republic makes such good coffee. Boiling water is forced up the inner tube by pressurized steam. When the water hits the ground coffee, the temperature is perfect.
Finally, do not brew more coffee than you are going to drink right then and there. Brewed coffee left to cool or even left warming on a hot plate loses body and flavor very rapidly. You will just be wasting the quality you paid for and worked hard to achieve.
Now sit bag on your shady terrace, kick off those shoes and lean back…relax and enjoy the perfect cup of coffee. While you are drinking our rich coffee, close your eyes.
Enjoy the wonderful aroma and envision the bright Caribbean sun while you are enjoying the best coffee in all the world.
Remember, how much it takes to get that aromatic black liquid into your hands, as many people do not realize how much was involved to give you that morning or after dinner pleasure!
