How to get the perfect coffee with Fisher & Paykel

The coffee industry is continuing to grow, and barista-style coffee has become a staple of everyday life. When lockdown hit, many coffee lovers turned to integrated models to create their favourite coffee shop drinks at home. Since coffee shops have reopened, homeowners have continued to enjoy the quality and convenience that their machines offer and may have even convinced friends and family to convert, who may not have chosen to invest otherwise.

Fisher & Paykel have put together some of their top tips for getting the perfect brew. Whether you’re a coffee connoisseur or a total novice, this guide will help you get the best out of your home-brew coffee.

The ideal grind

A good grinder ensures the perfect texture for the coffee – fine grind for espresso, and courser for other coffees. Too fine and the coffee clumps together, too course and it doesn’t clump at all, delivering a coffee that is too weak. Too harsh a grind can also overheat the beans and impact the taste.

Fisher & Paykel’s built-in coffee maker delivers a consistent grind for the perfect coffee. There are 13 adjustable grind settings to choose from depending on your preference as each coffee requires a different grind, but you can also use pre-ground coffee too!

Brew to perfection

To correctly brew coffee is to allow the taste and temperature to be perfect for serving and maximise the flavour and drinking experience. The brewing process must include pre-infusion so the espresso and water can mix, and the pressure of the coffee machine must be between 9 and 12 BAR in order to create a barista-style espresso. The temperature of the water in the coffee maker should be between 88°C and 96°C when brewing which can be adjusted via the touchscreen interface. The Fisher & Paykel coffee machine has two separate heating elements – one dedicated to coffee and one to steaming milk.

Steaming the milk

Milk should be heated to 60°C to bring out its sweetness and create a well-balanced beverage. Fisher & Paykel’s coffee maker comes with a stainless-steel thermal milk jug. The milk foam dial can be adjusted to set the perfect consistency for all recipes.

Why choose built-in?

A built-in coffee machine is a great option for a compact kitchen and can be placed virtually anywhere. Many offer greater opportunities for customisation than a freestanding machine, The Fisher & Paykel coffee maker comes equipped with 13 beverage options, adjustable coffee strength, temperature and cup sizes. There is also the added advantage that the extra external space of built-in models allows for options such as intuitive touchscreen displays that show memory, refill status as well as cleaning and maintenance settings making the appliance even easier to use. There is even the option to preprogramme an automatic setting that will make you a coffee at a pre-set time.
