Brew Up New Life Into Your Coffee Habit

Mak­ing your own cof­fee can be en­joy­able and dif­fi­cult at the same time. There is a lot of equip­ment in­volved in the process. Cof­fee grinders, pots, press­es and oth­er de­vices are re­quired. How­ev­er, you can make the process much sim­pler by ap­ply­ing the fol­low­ing point­ers.

If you en­joy brew­ing cof­fee for your­self, try giv­ing it a stir in the pot right af­ter it fin­ish­es brew­ing. Stir your cof­fee for the best taste and smell. This im­parts a rich­er taste and that de­light­ful cof­fee fra­grance that every­one loves.

Try to avoid cof­fee grounds that have been grown around pes­ti­cides. Cof­fee is a very ab­sorbent crop, and de­rives lots of fla­vor from the soil in which it orig­i­nat­ed. Cof­fee that is grown or­gan­i­cal­ly has a nice nat­ur­al taste.

The most im­por­tant part of the cof­fee bev­er­age is the cof­fee it­self. Look around your lo­cal stores. It is not dif­fi­cult to pur­chase fresh­ly-roast­ed beans. You can al­so look on­line for cof­fee beans. It may cost a lit­tle more, but it will save you a lot of time hunt­ing for it.

Put some mon­ey to­wards a sim­ple cof­fee grinder. Fresh­ly ground beans re­tain more oil and will pro­duce a rich­er, more aro­mat­ic cup of cof­fee. The ma­jor­i­ty of ma­chines per­mit ad­just­ments to the grind. If you’d like to avoid sep­a­rate ap­pli­ances, find a cof­fee ma­chine that has a built-in grinder.

French Press

In or­der to in­crease the fla­vor of your cof­fee, buy a French press. More oil is squeezed out of the cof­fee beans when a French press is used, and that re­sults in bet­ter tast­ing cof­fee. In reg­u­lar ma­chines, these oils are of­ten lost when they are ab­sorbed in­to pa­per fil­ters.

While it can be ex­pen­sive to buy cof­fee at a spe­cial­ty shop, it is nice to treat your­self from time to time. A wide ar­ray of great op­tions ex­ist, and it is fun to add a bit of choco­late, caramel or whipped cream to your drink.

The best cof­fee is made with fresh­ly roast­ed beans. Make sure you look at the ex­pi­ra­tion date when buy­ing whole beans. Spe­cial­ty stores are su­pe­ri­or to gro­cery stores when buy­ing cof­fee beans.

Cof­fee should be stored in a con­tain­er away from the oven. Heat is dis­as­trous to cof­fee. Steer clear of counter tops and cab­i­nets, even if it is above the oven it­self.

To low­er your caf­feine con­sump­tion, you don’t need to just quit. Grind up half de­caf and half reg­u­lar beans to make your own blend. If you pre­fer ground cof­fee, just mix equal parts reg­u­lar and de­caf for use in the cof­fee mak­er.

If you’re us­ing a mod­el of drip cof­fee brew­er, make sure the wa­ter you put in­to it is cold. Hot wa­ter is off lim­its for this type of brew­er. As the cof­fee brews, the wa­ter is heat­ed. If your wa­ter is hot to be­gin with, it will burn the grounds. Your cof­fee sim­ply won’t taste good.

Don’t let your cof­fee sit on the burn­er for more than 10 min­utes. Your cof­fee will be­come bit­ter be­cause of the burn on the bot­tom of the pot. To help your cof­fee re­main hot, use a sealed carafe or ther­mos.

Avoid buy­ing the same cof­fee every time. There are dif­fer­ent blends that you can pur­chase, so look in­to them. Ex­per­i­ment a lit­tle, es­pe­cial­ly when you first start try­ing to see what you like. You can give your­self a boost by mix­ing up what you drink. Keep dif­fer­ent fla­vors in the freez­er.

Cof­fee is good, but don’t drink too much. Drink­ing a lot of cof­fee will de­plete your body of wa­ter. For every cup of cof­fee that you con­sume, you need to bal­ance it with two cups of wa­ter. More than a sin­gle cup of cof­fee can de­hy­drate you, so watch your con­sump­tion.

Coffee Maker

Get a cof­fee mak­er that can mul­ti­task. This cof­fee mak­er can help you across the board when mak­ing cof­fee. Get an ap­pli­ance that au­to­mates the brew­ing process so you have fresh cof­fee wait­ing for you when you wake up. This makes your morn­ing much eas­i­er. And, you will en­joy your cof­fee so much more when you don’t have to make it while you’re grog­gy.

You shouldn’t drink cof­fee past 3 in the af­ter­noon. It’s easy to for­get that a tasty cup of cof­fee can keep you up way past bed­time. Draw a line in the sand and com­mit to not drink­ing cof­fee af­ter 3 p.m.; ad­just as need­ed if it still af­fects your sleep.

Add a small pinch of salt to re­duce an acid fla­vor in your cof­fee. Just be sure not to add too much salt, though. You on­ly need a tiny bit. Sea salt will give you a more nat­ur­al op­tion.

Is the cost of cof­fee eat­ing in­to your bud­get? A trav­el­ing mug and an at-home cof­fee mak­er can be a great in­vest­ment. Cups of cof­fee shop cof­fee can re­al­ly add up. You’ll save time, since mak­ing your own cof­fee takes less time than go­ing to a shop.

Make sure the cof­fee is done brew­ing be­fore you pour a cup. When a pot first starts to drip the cof­fee is rather wa­tery, but by the end it is full strength. As you are mak­ing your cof­fee, it mix­es up and it will not be at full fla­vor un­til it is done.

Mak­ing and drink­ing cof­fee should be a sim­ple plea­sure, though you wouldn’t know it to see all the tools and ap­pli­ances need­ed to per­fect the process. It can be quite com­pli­cat­ed, but it doesn’t have to be. If you fol­low these tips you will have a great time mak­ing cof­fee.
