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.

Filter Machine

Prepare red espresso® just like conventional filter coffee. Be careful not to overfill the basket! A thinner filter paper is recommended

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.
