Riyadh, KSA, April, 2016 – In some parts of the world, coffee is not just a caffeine loaded drink but so much more. Coffee has been connecting people for hundreds of years, especially in the Middle East, and it is deeply rooted in the heart of the local culture and tradition. There is an art behind its creation, and a pleasure behind its consumption. Today, coffee has become a symbol for appreciation, hospitality and warm greetings.
The Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh family is well trained in the craft of coffee making and exceptional coffee presentation to guests. They use the top 5% of beans produced in the world originated from three different countries; Colombia, East Java and Ethiopia.
Known to be the best coffee from Colombia, The Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh offers Colombian coffee, proven to be the best of its type and is grown at 5,500 feet above the sea.
Fresh from one of the oldest farms in Ethiopia, the Ethiopian coffee at The Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh comes with berries, jasmine and bittersweet chocolate flavors. Extra handpicking makes this the highest grading of all Ethiopian coffees.
Born in the island of east Java, this historic vibrant and bold flavored coffee of nuts, grapes and chocolate offers strong flavors to strong coffee lovers.
The Ritz- Carlton, Riyadh uses four different methods of coffee brewing that gives a special flavor and scent to the coffee: Syphone includes a Vacuum technique which produces an intense hot & bold coffee cup packed with flavor yet very clean and smooth on the palate. The Pour Over method is a traditional way of brewing the coffee in the most gentle possible way, to create a smooth and aromatic experience. Meanwhile, AeroPress applies pressure to coffee beans through a filter to produce a creamy and pure taste, and the Cold Brew technique brings not just visual, but also tasty benefits. When cold coffee is brewed fewer bitter and acidic notes from the coffee bean are extracted. Hence, the coffee will be sweeter, fruitier and soft.
The Chorisia lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh offers a great selection of desserts, macaroons and cookies to perfectly match with any choice of coffee.
