How do you prepare Lazy Eye Coffee?
To prepare a Lazy Eye coffee at home, you’ll need a home espresso machine and a filter coffee machine, along with two types of coffee beans.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Drip coffee maker
- Paper filter (if required)
- Espresso machine
- Decaf coffee beans
- Regular coffee beans
- Coffee grinder
- Serving glass
A step-by-step guide:
1. Grind the decaf beans
You will use the decaf beans for the drip coffee maker, so they require a medium grind. Most drip coffee makers require you to brew at least two cups, so check that you have enough for the minimum brewing levels.
2. Make the drip coffee
Add the ground decaf coffee to the filter basket and switch on your machine. While the decaf is brewing, you can start on the espresso.
3. Grind the regular beans
Clean out your grinder to remove any decaf coffee, then grind the regular beans to a medium-fine grind.
4. Make the espresso
When the drip coffee is ready, fill your portafilter with the regular coffee and pull 1-2 shots.
5. Combine and serve
Pour the drip coffee into your serving glass, leaving 1-2 oz of space for the espresso. Pour the espresso shots over the decaf coffee. The drink is combined in this order to help retain the crema on the espresso.
What are the differences between Lazy Eye and Red Eye?
The key difference between a Lazy Eye and Red Eye coffee is decaf drip coffee. The caffeine content in a single-shot Lazy Eye is around 80-90 mg, compared to around 215 mg for a Red Eye. When comparing a Lazy Eye coffee to a Red Eye coffee, there will be minimal variation in taste.
What are the differences between Lazy Eye and Black Eye?
The differences between a Lazy Eye and Black Eye are taste and caffeine content. A Black Eye coffee is a cup of drip coffee with two espresso shots, giving it a stronger coffee taste. The extra espresso raises the caffeine content of a Black Eye to around 280 mg, compared to 80-90 mg for a Lazy Eye. If you make your Lazy Eye coffee with two espresso shots, the difference will only be in the caffeine levels and not the taste.
What are the differences between Lazy Eye and Dead Eye (Dripped Eye)?
The differences between Lazy Eye and Dead Eye coffee are in the taste and the level of caffeine alike. A Dripped Eye coffee uses three espresso shots, making the coffee flavor much more concentrated. A single-shot Lazy Eye coffee contains around 80-90 mg of caffeine, whereas a Dead Eye coffee can contain 373 mg of caffeine.
What does Lazy Eye taste like?
The taste of Lazy Eye coffee combines the simple smooth taste of drip coffee with espresso’s strong and sometimes bitter flavor. The same flavor profile will depend on the types of coffee you use to make each part of the drink. Due to the mix of coffees, this is not a good choice for enjoying the individual flavor profiles of the beans.
