When we, the quirky coffee crusaders at Caffè di Artisan, used to drink machine-made coffee, we used to say "Why does this taste burnt and bitter?"
Then, we started several years-long deep dives into the Art and Science of Coffee.
And made a startling discovery: that coffee machines were absolutely the wrong way to reach coffee heaven.
So we created Caffè di Artisan.
Machine Free Coffee. Slowly extracted over days in our Artisanal Micro-Filtery.
With Caffè di Artisan Liquid Single Serve Machine Free coffee pods, you can now make better-than-gourmet-cafe level Espressos, Lattés, Cappuccinos, Frappes in your Home, Office, Cafe. Effortlessly.
Call it the democratisation of Coffee.
How to make the World's Finest Coffee Drinks
Pour out just about a teaspoon (5 ml) of the liquid shot from the pod into an Espresso shot cup
Pour out the rest of the shot into the cup
Add about 1 oz (25 ml) - equal to the amount of the coffee shot- of room temperature water to the shot. Put just half an oz (10-15 ml) for a Ristretto
Heat the combined Espresso + water shot in the microwave for just 5-10 seconds (depending on power of the machine)
Your Espresso is ready in just 15 seconds!
Pour out just about a teaspoon (5 ml) of the liquid shot from the pod into an Espresso shot cup, which has been pre-heated by rinsing it with very hot water
Froth this using the Free Frother for 3-5 seconds to create a wonderful crema
Pour out the rest of the shot into the cup
Just add an oz (25-30 ml) of hot (95°C/ 200°F) water to the Caffe di Artisan liquid shot
Your espresso is ready in just 15-20 seconds!
Americano (Black Coffee)/ White Americano (Black Coffee with a bit of milk)
Pour out the shot from the liquid pod into a normal cup of 240 ml size (8 oz)
Optional: Froth the shot lightly to release aromas and create a rich crema
Pour 150 ml ( 5 floz) hot water into the cup
Your black coffee is ready in 15 seconds flat!
Pour Caffè di Artisan liquid coffee shot into a cup of 8 oz (240 ml), froth for 2-3 seconds
Heat around 5 oz (125-150 ml) milk (We recommend using whole milk for the best tasting Lattés, but it's entirely your choice)
Froth the hot milk for 15-30 seconds to create rich foam, for a Latté. Foam for 60 seconds for Cappuccino
Pour hot, frothed milk into the cup, and top off with extra foam for a Cappuccino
Heat around 50 (2 floz) ml milk in a small china cup, in a microwave or a stove
Froth milk for about 30 seconds to create rich foam
Open 1 CDA liquid coffee shot and pour onto the foamed milk, staining the milk
Take very cold milk, around 12 oz (360 ml) pour into large glass
Add 2-4 spoons of white / brown sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
Froth it for 1-2 minutes to create rich foam
Pour 1-2 CDA liquid shot (1 pod will make a weak Frappé because the quantity of milk used in a Frappe is higher at 10-12 oz. We recommend 2 pods for optimum taste, unless just 5 oz (125-150ml) milk is being used)
Add a bit of crushed ice if a real cold Frappe is desired. Top off with whipped cream/chocolate powder (Optional). Stick a straw into the drink
