Java Joe’s Golden Advice For Coffee Drinkers

There are a lot of things to keep in mind when buy­ing your cof­fee. This is par­tic­u­lar­ly true if you are a cof­fee novice. This ar­ti­cle will tell you what you need to know to tai­lor your cof­fee choic­es to your unique tastes.

French Press

Buy a French press so you can make amaz­ing­ly rich cof­fee. The pa­per fil­ters used in drip-style cof­fee mak­ers ab­sorb most of the oils that pro­duce fla­vor in cof­fee. A French press works dif­fer­ent­ly. It has a plunger, which shoves coarse­ly ground cof­fee beans to the carafe’s bot­tom. The oils stay in­side the cof­fee, giv­ing it a rich­er fla­vor.

An air­tight con­tain­er is the best place to keep cof­fee. Ex­posed beans makes for stale cof­fee. One-way valve bags are on­ly ef­fec­tive un­til they are opened. Af­ter that the con­tents should be trans­ferred to an air­tight con­tain­er. They al­low air to es­cape af­ter roast­ing while cool­ing.

Al­ways per­form a tri­al run with any new cof­fee mak­er. You’ll want to run it just like you nor­mal­ly would, with wa­ter go­ing through it. This helps re­move foul smells and any dirt or dust that may have col­lect­ed in­side the ma­chine when it was sit­ting on the shelf in the store.

If you keep your cof­fee in a re­frig­er­a­tor, be sure that no air can get in­to the con­tain­er. When the con­tain­er isn’t air­tight, odors and fla­vors from oth­er foods can seep in. Stor­ing cof­fee for a pe­ri­od of weeks in the wrong con­tain­er can lead to moist beans or grounds.

Mea­sure the wa­ter you put in your cof­fee ma­chine care­ful­ly. If you want strong cof­fee, do not add a lot of wa­ter. It is al­so im­por­tant to re­al­ize that if there is too much wa­ter, your cof­fee will not have enough fla­vor. You should usu­al­ly use two cups of wa­ter for each scoop of cof­fee grounds.

Cof­fee should nev­er be re­heat­ed. In­stead, buy a spe­cial ther­mal mug that keeps your cof­fee hot for hours at a time. If you do not have ac­cess to a ther­mos, brew a fresh pot of cof­fee.

You can make froth for your cof­fee from milk at home! You want to heat the milk un­til it be­gins to steam. Then, use a whisk, rock­ing its han­dle to and fro be­tween your palms. Keep go­ing un­til you achieve a good foam. For best re­sults, uti­lize half-and-half, whole or 2 per­cent milk.

If you feel the need to low­er your caf­feine in­take, you do not ac­tu­al­ly have to stop all at once. One way to ap­proach this is to use a mix­ture of caf­feinat­ed and de-caf­feinat­ed beans. If your beans are al­ready ground, then take half of each type and use them in the cof­fee ma­chine.

Your pantry holds a va­ri­ety of cof­fee sweet­en­ers that you have prob­a­bly nev­er thought of us­ing be­fore. If you are tired of us­ing plain old white sug­ar, try raw or brown sug­ar, in­stead. Cof­fee in­fused with nut­meg, vanil­la and cin­na­mon is al­so very de­li­cious. In­stead of milk, fla­vored soy or al­mond milk can be used.

You should nev­er keep your cof­fee on the heat­ed sur­face for more than a few min­utes. If you leave your cof­fee on any longer, it will start to burn, which will leave your brew with a bit­ter taste. To keep cof­fee warm, pour it in­to a ther­mos that’s air­tight to keep the heat in­side.

Don’t drink too much cof­fee in the af­ter­noon. Cof­fee tastes great, but con­sum­ing too much caf­feine too close to bed­time could dis­rupt your sleep cy­cle. Avoid drink­ing cof­fee past 3 in the af­ter­noon.

If you want to make iced cof­fee, you should place your French press in­side the fridge overnight. Then, it is al­ready cold when you are next ready for it. If you use cold wa­ter to start, you will cre­ate fab­u­lous fla­vor.

Do you like milk in cof­fee? There are a few dif­fer­ent ways you can put milk in­to your cof­fee. Us­ing hot or cold milk can cre­ate dif­fer­ent tex­tures. Dif­fer­ent fla­vors can be achieved by adding dif­fer­ent quan­ti­ties of milk.

Hope­ful­ly, this ar­ti­cle has giv­en you a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of how to shop for cof­fee. There are a wide va­ri­ety of op­tions, and on­ly the best will work for you. Re­call the tips you’ve just read when you shop for your next batch of cof­fee.
