Do You Love Coffee? Try Our Tips

It may seem that cof­fee is sim­ply a mat­ter of hot wa­ter and ground beans, but there is so much more to it. Cof­fee con­tains caf­feine, which is a nat­ur­al drug, and it has to be thought of se­ri­ous­ly. If you have just start­ed drink­ing some cof­fee, or have en­joyed it for a while but don’t know much about it, this ar­ti­cle is for you.

If you have di­a­betes or want to lose weight, try Ste­via in­stead of re­al sug­ar. Be­cause Ste­via us­es all-nat­ur­al sweet­en­ing in­gre­di­ents, it is a healthy way to light­en up your cof­fee with­out adding glu­cose or calo­ries. It can be found in fine gro­cers and health food stores.

Cof­fee can help re­duce cab­in fever if you work at home. The ma­jor­i­ty of cafes of­fer free WiFi, which means you can work out­side your home once in a while with your lap­top and a fresh cup of your fa­vorite hot bev­er­age at hand. Some restau­rants have fol­lowed suit.

Putting food and drinks in the freez­er makes them keep longer, but there’s a lim­it to this. For cof­fee, three months is about the longest it can stay frozen. If you do, it will be­gin to get stale.

It is al­ways wise to brew a plain pot of wa­ter be­fore you ac­tu­al brew your cof­fee if you are us­ing an econ­o­my mod­el ma­chine. Af­ter get­ting the hot wa­ter, add the cof­fee grounds, and then pour the hot wa­ter in­to your cof­fee mak­er. This tech­niques help you at­tain a hot, fla­vor­ful pot of cof­fee.

The type of wa­ter used can al­ter the taste of cof­fee, so make sure to use good tast­ing, fil­tered wa­ter. Cof­fee tastes on­ly as good as wa­ter you use for it. You might want to taste your wa­ter be­fore brew­ing with it.

Get a sim­ple cof­fee grinder. Grind­ing your beans just be­fore brew­ing leaves aro­mat­ic, fla­vor­ful oils in­tact and makes cof­fee taste fresh­er. 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.

The fla­vor of the cof­fee de­pends high­ly on the bean’s ori­gins. Mix it up every now and again and try some­thing new. Don’t base your pur­chase sole­ly on price; a more ex­pen­sive brand may ac­tu­al­ly have a high­er caf­feine con­tent, re­sult­ing in your drink­ing less.

Coffee Beans

When you buy beans in bulk, you should take ex­tra pre­cau­tions to keep them fresh. Cof­fee beans can very eas­i­ly ab­sorb out­side fla­vors. They al­so lose fla­vor when they are ex­posed to strong heat. Make sure you store your cof­fee beans in a dark, air­tight con­tain­er.

Nev­er just throw cof­fee grounds in­to a cof­fee mak­er with­out mea­sur­ing first. Match the num­ber of cups you’d like to the right mea­sure­ment of grounds. A tra­di­tion­al cof­fee cup holds six ounces where­as a mea­sur­ing cup holds eight. Two ta­ble­spoons of cof­fee to a cof­fee cup is the typ­i­cal cof­fee to wa­ter ra­tio. If you use an eight ounce mea­sur­ing cup for every two ta­ble­spoons of cof­fee, it will taste weak.

Al­though you may be tempt­ed to grab a cup of cof­fee be­fore the cof­fee fin­ish­es brew­ing, wait! Some ma­chines let you do that, but your cof­fee is go­ing to suf­fer. In­stead think about get­ting a ma­chine that has a timer. That way, it is pos­si­ble to have fresh cof­fee right when you wake.

You sure­ly have broad­er cof­fee knowl­edge than ever be­fore, hav­ing pe­rused the pre­ced­ing piece. If you are an avid cof­fee mak­er you still prob­a­bly didn’t know about what is con­tained in this ar­ti­cle. You might be sur­prised by what a big dif­fer­ence these lit­tle tips can make in the fla­vor of your cof­fee.
