Coffee is available in a variety of different forms to suit different coffee machines and coffee making preferences. It all starts with the coffee bean. Much like wine, the region where a bean grows impacts on flavour. The amount of water, sunshine, fertile soil and the time from picking to roasting can impact on the final taste.
Coffee is among the most loved and popular beverages to start the day. While coffee lovers are looking for high-quality coffee beans, they are also increasingly becoming more conscious about ethical and eco-friendly practices in the coffee industry. Several brands so far have started working towards a more sustainable and fair-trade business model. Faitrade-certified coffee brands ensure their farmers are paid fairly, have sufficient training and adequate working conditions. These brands are also further focused towards plastic free, carbon neutral working process, using renewable resources and compostable packaging. Fair trade is an important element in every industry but coffee farmers are one of the most vulnerable to market price fluctuations and fair trade is making sure farmers are protected, which is why many coffee consumers are looking towards brands that ensure fair working practices.
The ancient practice of alchemy was a blend of the beginnings of philosophy, magic and chemistry. Alchemists searched for a mysterious substance called the Philosopher’s Stone, that would transform base metals into gold. They also believed in the elixir of life – a magical potion that would bring health, wealth and immortality. At De’Longhi, there’s a magical potion we’re obsessed with. It’s called coffee: and there’s certainly an art and a science to making it well.

There are around 850 smallholder farmers who tender cherry to the Gigesa Washing Station in Shakisso, in the Oromia region of Ethiopia, which borders Sidama to the southeast. The average farm size is 2.5 hectares, with corn, grains and banana typically growing alongside the coffee. The wet mill uses clean river water to process its washed coffee, which are fermented underwater in tanks for 48 hours before being washed clean of its mucilage and dried on raised beds. Aside from its near-legendary status as the “birthplace” of Arabica coffee, there is much to love about Ethiopia as a producing nation, including but not limited to the incredible diversity of flavor and character that exists among microregions.
