Espresso Machine

Pre-ground and ready to use in your espresso machine.

  1. Scoop 14g red espresso (1 level red scoop)
  2. Into our RCP (red crema plus) filter basket or a standard double filter basket
  3. No need to tamp
  4. Extract a double shot (60ml/2oz.) This is the basis for all red drinks

Dedicate a group head and porta handle to red espresso and use our RCP (red crema plus) basket. This ensures best flavour, extraction and crema every time.

OR dedicate a porta handle and rinse your group head when switching between coffee and red espresso.

If using a standard double filter basket, manually pre-infuse: stop when the pour starts, wait 10 seconds and then resume ex- pressing.

Stovetop Moka Pot

Fill the filter basket, leaving enough space for red espresso to expand. Place on medium heat.

French Press

Use 14g (2 tablespoons) per cup and top with just-boiled water. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes. For a stronger flavour, use more red espresso.

Nespresso Machine

Prepare red espresso just like any coffee capsule.

How to make a fresh red® iced tea

Here are some tips on how best to put red drinks on your menu.

  • red drinks are always written as two words and registered ®
  • Simply list a red drink in its associated category i.e. our cafe-style drinks should appear with your teas, our iced teas should appear with your iced teas – as shown below.

How to price red drinks

Price your red drinks at the same price as their coffee equivalents.
Alternatively, as it is a healthy product, you can add a slight (5 – 10%) premium.
