In Namibia I usually drink Rooicappu but I don't know how to make it on my own. On the recipe card I find only the "normal" Rooi espresso but what exactly (+ how much of it) do I need for the Cappu?
Couldn’t be happier with my tea.
I bought this because I had tried the beverage at a coffee shop -a super rich and concentrated rooibos latte- but it wasn’t the same although I did do it on the espresso machine from a coffee shop, it was less concentrated. Maybe I did something wrong with the preparation, don’t know. Taste is really good though just not as potent.
Original Ground red espresso® - Rooibos espresso tea
I remember having a great performance out of my Breville espresso machine. Unfortunately, the 12 g does not seem to be working well to get the red espresso crema with small pores commercial grade espresso machine such as ilisomac. Still working on the right amount.
Thank you for your review, you are correct about the pores of your Breville basket, it works great with 12g of red espresso®. Most regular home espresso machines work best with 12g. With commercial-grade machines, the basket is bigger and we recommend using 14g red espresso®. We have the following link for you to follow our café instructions: https://redespresso.com/pages/barista-rooibos-recipe-card
There are 2 options for you to consider getting a better extraction and crema on a commercial-grade espresso machine:
1. Try option 1 on the card and use the regular double filter basket and manually pre-infuse
2. Consider purchasing our RCP™ filter basket, which was designed for better extraction on commercial espresso machines. We developed it to work similarly to the Breville basket. Its got fewer holes that are smaller. This helps develop a better flavour extraction and better crema. We do recommend with Commercial-grade machines that you use 14g of red espresso® to start. We hope this helps!
