Curious About Coffee? Read These Tips Now!

Noth­ing is bet­ter than a nice cup of cof­fee. Many peo­ple do! Are you so busy that you buy the same type of cof­fee every time you’re in the store? If so, then you need a cof­fee makeover! Read the ad­vice be­low be­fore you en­joy any more cof­fee.

Seal all of your cof­fee in air­tight con­tain­ers. Ex­posed beans makes for stale cof­fee. Don’t use plas­tic or oth­er types of bags that are not air-tight, even if the cof­fee was orig­i­nal­ly stored in it. The valves are on­ly in­tend­ed to let the air out while the beans are cool­ing.

When buy­ing cof­fee grounds, in­spect the pack­ag­ing to en­sure that they are pes­ti­cide-free. The chem­i­cals are eas­i­ly ab­sorbed by the cof­fee plant from the soil it is grown in. There­fore, cof­fee that is or­gan­i­cal­ly grown will nat­u­ral­ly taste bet­ter.

On­ly store cof­fee in the re­frig­er­a­tor if the con­tain­er you are us­ing is air­tight. Cof­fee takes the odors of dif­fer­ent fruits and veg­eta­bles, which will cor­rupt the taste. Stor­ing cof­fee for a pe­ri­od of weeks in the wrong con­tain­er can lead to moist beans or grounds.

A cof­fee grinder goes a long way to­ward mak­ing a great cup of cof­fee. Wait­ing to grind beans un­til you are about to brew al­lows the fla­vor­ful cof­fee oils to re­main. Gen­er­al­ly, grinders will al­low you to pre-se­lect how coarse you want your beans ground. If you would rather not have yet an­oth­er ap­pli­ance, try to find a cof­fee mak­er that has a grinder in­clud­ed.

Do not re­heat cof­fee if you de­sire to have it again. Rather, it is pos­si­ble to buy ther­mal con­tain­ers that can keep cof­fee hot for a good amount of time. If you can­not keep the cof­fee fresh un­til you want it again, then you might as well start over with a new pot when you are ready for more.

For the best tast­ing cup of cof­fee, use beans that have been roast­ed quite re­cent­ly. If you buy whole beans, you should al­ways check the ex­pi­ra­tion date and find out when these beans have been roast­ed. In­stead of buy­ing your cof­fee beans in a gro­cery store, it is a good idea to get them at a cof­fee shop or spe­cial­ty store.

You need not freeze your cof­fee. Cof­fee can ab­sorb fla­vors and scents from near­by food items. Your best choice is to store cof­fee in an opaque, air­tight con­tain­er in an area at or near room tem­per­a­ture. If you must keep it in­side the fridge or freez­er, be sure it’s in­side a freez­er bag with a seal.

Coffee Beans

Store cof­fee beans with care. Cof­fee beans will ab­sorb fla­vors. They will al­so lose their own fla­vors over time, es­pe­cial­ly when ex­posed to heat or light. To keep the fla­vor of your cof­fee safe, keep it in a dark, air-tight stor­age con­tain­er.

Avoid stor­ing your cof­fee near the oven or any oth­er heat source. This is pos­si­bly the fastest way to re­duce the qual­i­ty of your cof­fee, due to the heat emit­ted from the oven. Steer clear of counter tops and cab­i­nets, even if it is above the oven it­self.

Al­ways con­sid­er how much cof­fee you plan on hav­ing as you mea­sure out the wa­ter and cof­fee grounds. A typ­i­cal cup con­tains six ounces, and a mea­sur­ing cup con­tains eight. The best ra­tio is about 2 tb­sp. of cof­fee to 6 ounces wa­ter. If you use a mea­sur­ing cup, you will end up with wa­tered down cof­fee.

With the con­cepts in this piece in mind, hope­ful­ly you have the con­fi­dence to try some new things. Think about what sort of cof­fee you want to try. Con­sid­er ask­ing a fel­low cof­fee-lov­ing friend to ex­per­i­ment with you. To­geth­er, you and your fel­low cof­fee lovers can try all sorts of new brew vari­a­tions.
