COFFEE TO NORWAY
The roast was the dominant form of coffee consumption in Norway, accounting for 93.5% of national consumption, compared to only 6.5% of soluble coffee. However, the percentage of roasted down from 96.1% in 1997 to 90.9% in 2011, while increasing the use of soluble. The use of coffee capsules was still limited and represented only 1% of total consumption in 2011.
In Norway, the coffee is taken at all hours, the office, but most of the home is the main scenarios in which this drink is consumed. In Norway, there are bars, as we understand them, not least because the supply of alcohol in public is prohibited for most of the week. Thus, common hospitality venues are restaurants or eating houses, where, obviously, if they serve coffee. There, as at home, is prepared normally infusion electric coffee percolators or drip. During preparation, using between 40 and 50 gr. coffee per liter of water, which is four times less than for a coffee Espresso. The resulting coffee is, therefore, very soft, a fact that undoubtedly also contributes to high rates of consumption of this drink in the country.
The Norwegians have been encouraged to have coffee in the abundance of coffee bars. The number of coffee shops has increased significantly in recent years. The American favorite, Starbucks has made its debut in Norway yet, but there are a significant number of coffee bars owned and operated by different companies. With only 4.5 million people in Norway, which import 41 tons of coffee to Norway a year.
Perhaps the reason I drink coffee so much is because of Norwegian social habits. Norway has cold winters, however, another reason to be drawn to a hot cup of Java. At dinner, it is common for guests to go to another room after dinner and coffee with cake and informal socializing often involves meeting and coffee cake.
In fact, not only Norway and Denmark, all of the Scandinavian countries leading the way in coffee consumption. Coffee Caffeine can be a necessary stimulant for a population that is in the dark for half the year. Denmark is like Norway, with a lot of coffee to make coffee bar very convenient. And Starbucks is in Denmark. There are some shops in the capital city of Copenhagen.
Coffee consumption has a social purpose and gives many people a good start in the morning with a dose of caffeine. The Hot Java dedicated drinkers live mainly an in cold country, which seems reasonable.
Since 1962, Norwegian Coffee Association has an active program promoting coffee quality standards, through which has managed to not only ensure that many of the highest quality coffees that are produced on the planet are intended the Norwegian market, but also about 94% of the coffee companies in this country have accepted systematically subjecting all its products and quality control machinery, and coffee professionals Norwegians are among the most qualified and recognized in the world.
Thus, when preparing their products, roasters Norwegians are governed by very strict standards that specify, for example, the correct size ground coffee beans or the amount of caffeine allowed for each type of coffee. Likewise, and at the time of the ground, they must also take into account the purpose of the product and prepare
accordingly. It is processed as a "filter ground" targeting coffee drip machines. This type of coffee is prepared in such a way that to achieve its maximum flavor recommended exposure to hot water no more than 4-6 minutes.
Meanwhile, packaged coffees as "boiling ground" should not exceed 6-8 minutes of exposure. Obviously these times change if brewing is done with heavier gauge machines. Thus, for example, for automatic ground, exposure time is fixed at a minute for extra fine ground, between 1 and 4 minutes for the fine grinding, between 4 and 6 minutes, and finally to the ground more thick, about 6 to 8 minutes.
The top five sources of imports from Norway accounted for 72.2% of the total, and 68.6% of that total came from four exporting countries. The top five suppliers were Brazil (36.9%), Colombia (19.4%), Guatemala (8.7%), Switzerland (3.6%) and Mexico (3.6%).
