Do You Love Coffee? Use These Tips

Are you un­fa­mil­iar with the terms french roast, medi­um blend, and dark roast? Do you have no idea what the dif­fer­ences be­tween di­ary and non-dairy cream­ers are? If so, you prob­a­bly don’t know that much about cof­fee. Nev­er fear, this ar­ti­cle has some won­der­ful tricks to help you im­prove your knowl­edge and skill.

French press­es are pop­u­lar for cof­fee mak­ing be­cause the re­sult­ing cof­fee is high­ly fla­vored. Pa­per fil­ters re­quired by tra­di­tion­al cof­fee mak­ers ab­sorb some of the coffee’s fla­vor. It keeps the grounds low. This leaves the bean’s oils with­in the cof­fee, giv­ing it a rich fla­vor.

Do not re­heat cof­fee af­ter you are fin­ished with it. It isn’t harm­ful, but it tastes nasty. The taste does suf­fer, though. The com­pounds that give cof­fee its spe­cial taste start to break down as soon as 30 min­utes af­ter brew­ing. This will make it taste pe­cu­liar or bit­ter.

While keep­ing cof­fee in the freez­er can ex­tend its shelf life, you shouldn’t store it for longer than three months. Af­ter a while, cof­fee will lose fla­vor, even in the freez­er.

To ex­tract great fla­vor fro old­er cof­fee mak­ers, run a cy­cle of just wa­ter be­fore mak­ing cof­fee. When you’ve got a hot wa­ter pot, add your grounds, and pour that wa­ter back in­to your ma­chine. This helps pro­vide the best fla­vor and very hot cof­fee.

The most crit­i­cal el­e­ment that fac­tors in­to the taste of your drink is the cof­fee it­self be­fore brew­ing. Pe­ruse your lo­cal su­per­mar­kets for any items you want. Fresh beans are not that hard to find. Though, if you re­side in a small­er lo­cale, think about shop­ping on­line. Al­though this could be a bit ex­pen­sive, you will be pay­ing the equiv­a­lent to a cup of cof­fee from the store.

For the best tast­ing cup of cof­fee, use beans that have been roast­ed quite re­cent­ly. If you use whole beans, check the roast­ing date be­fore you buy. Spe­cial­ty stores are su­pe­ri­or to gro­cery stores when buy­ing cof­fee beans.

Have you tried to copy the taste of cof­fee you get in shops but fell short fla­vor-wise? When brew­ing, try adding more cof­fee. Most cof­fee shops use two ta­ble­spoons of cof­fee for six ounces of wa­ter. The best way to find what works for you is to just ex­per­i­ment, re­mem­ber­ing that the ra­tios may be dif­fer­ent with each type of beans.

If you are hav­ing a hard time mak­ing the jump over to de­caf­feinat­ed cof­fee you are in luck. You can make your own “se­mi” caf­feine-free brew by grind­ing equal parts of reg­u­lar beans and de-caf beans. If you’re us­ing cof­fee that’s al­ready been ground, just add how­ev­er much you want of each one.

Do you have a ba­by that needs your con­stant at­ten­tion, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to fin­ish your morn­ing cup of cof­fee? If so, dis­cov­er a fast dri­ve-through cof­fee shop near­by. You could eas­i­ly go out for a quick dri­ve, grab a cup of your fa­vorite bev­er­age and drink it on your way back home or to work.

Don’t feel let down by a lack of cof­fee knowl­edge. Cof­fee does not have to be con­fus­ing once you un­der­stand the ba­sics. Keep in mind the in­for­ma­tion you’ve learned here and soon you’ll be en­joy­ing a per­fect­ly brewed cup.
