BOB Coffee Lab
Cristina:“A coffee shop is an extension of the Roasting Lab. Here is the place where the philosophy of the perfect roasted coffee continues through tests and experiments. Paul is a worldwide awarded barista and has the concentration skills of a shaolin master. He works with the essences and takes into consideration many tiny details in order to create a masterpiece from the cup of coffee that you taste. The most important elements in the coffee making process are water and the roasting of the coffee beans. Both have to be perfect. The rest is all about techniques and creativity. Paul and his team create a unique recipe for each different product. They work with modern machines that are capable of stabilizing the water temperature and the pressure of coffee extraction. They weigh each coffee dose and then they measure the coffee yield from the cup in order to deliver a constant taste quality.”
