What Lowers the Quality of Your Café’s Coffee?

What Lowers the Quality of Your Café’s Coffee?

Top-quality coffee beans, expensive equipment, and an experienced barista. What could go wrong with this combination?

We guess these are the first three things you secured to provide your customers with the best coffee experience.

And you made an excellent start! But is this combination truly foolproof?

Are there other factors affecting the quality and final taste of your coffee that might be causing you to lose customers without realizing it?

With all the responsibilities of running a café, it’s easy for some things to slip through the cracks.

But isn’t it frustrating when all your hard work goes to waste?

That’s why you need to know about the three biggest threats to good coffee in your shop and how to fix them. Let’s get started.

Neglected Equipment

Your coffee equipment is a significant investment. It’s expensive and vital for making high-quality coffee.

However, even the best coffee machine won’t deliver top results without regular cleaning and maintenance.

You know that a neglected machine can ruin your customers’ experience, leaving a bitter taste and affecting the coffee’s texture and appearance.

So, does your barista clean the machine as often and as thoroughly as needed? Do they know the correct cleaning methods? Do they sometimes forget or underestimate the importance of a clean machine?

In addition to regular cleaning, periodic maintenance is essential. But with so much on your plate, how can you remember when it’s time for maintenance?

One of the most important virtues of a barista is speed. Especially during peak hours, every café owner wants a quick barista who can serve every impatient customer swiftly.

However, customers need to be served quickly and be satisfied with the taste, right?

But does your staff sacrifice some of the coffee’s quality to serve faster?

Are they perhaps not adhering to the correct extraction times or not measuring the proportions accurately?

Especially maintaining the ideal extraction time, depending on the type of coffee being brewed, is crucial for the coffee’s taste.

Low-Quality Water

Almost 95% of every cup of coffee we serve is water. Therefore, as you can imagine, water quality directly affects both the taste and overall quality of the coffee.

Depending on the minerals and elements it contains, water can significantly impact the taste of our coffee.

Additionally, low-quality water can lead to limescale buildup in our equipment, which can damage it and reduce its efficiency.

Therefore, it’s important to regularly maintain and change the water filters on our machines to prevent limescale and other elements from affecting both the coffee’s taste and the performance of our machines.
