Come along as we explore the intricate process of coffee extraction testing at Pod & Parcel. With our unwavering commitment to the Testing Tasting Culture, we invite you to discover the perfect harmony of science and artistry in every cup of our brew. From the initial pour to the final sip, experience the symphony of extraction like never before.

Why Do We Test Extraction?

Ever wondered why we're so meticulous about our extraction testing? It's like tuning an instrument before a performance, ensuring every note sings in perfect harmony. Extraction testing is our way of fine-tuning each cup to deliver a deliciously balanced brew, every single time.

How Often Do We Test?

Extraction testing isn't just a one-time event; it's a continuous rhythm that beats hourly at Pod & Parcel. Through this steady rhythm, we ensure our brews hit all the right notes, crafting each pod with precision and care from start to finish.

The Process Unveiled:

Ever wonder how we conduct our extraction testing? Imagine our team of coffee connoisseurs meticulously analysing every detail of the brewing process. With the aid of our trusted Nespresso machines and astute observation, we extract the essence of each pod, composing a symphony of flavours that tantalise all the senses.

What Are We Looking For?

Beyond simply measuring time, we're searching for the sweet spot where flavour, aroma, and intensity harmonise perfectly. It's like finding the melody in a song, where every note flows seamlessly to create a beautiful composition. At Pod & Parcel, we're dedicated to crafting pods that hit all the right notes.

The Ultimate Extraction Time:

In our pursuit of the perfect brew, we've found that the sweet spot for extraction time falls between 23 and 27 seconds. Within this window, the coffee's flavours are at their peak, delivering a rich and satisfying experience with every sip.

Variables at Play:

Just like in a musical performance, there are many factors that influence the outcome of extraction. From the type of coffee beans to the grind size and water temperature, each element plays a crucial role in creating the perfect brew. By carefully controlling these variables, we ensure consistency and quality in every cup.

Impact on Taste and Quality:

Extraction time isn't just about timing; it's about capturing the essence of the coffee in its purest form. Too short, and you risk missing out on the full spectrum of flavours. Too long, and bitterness can overshadow the delicate nuances of the brew. Finding the right balance is key to unlocking the true potential of each pod.

Final Thoughts:

At Pod & Parcel, we believe that coffee is more than just a beverage; it's a symphony of flavours waiting to be discovered. Through our meticulous extraction testing process, we strive to create brews that delight the senses and elevate the coffee-drinking experience. So, join us on this journey of discovery, and let every cup be a celebration of craftsmanship and passion. Cheers to brewing brilliance with Pod & Parcel!
