What makes a great cup of cof­fee? While most peo­ple have their fa­vorite cof­fees, un­der­stand­ing what’s avail­able to you will help you find your pre­ferred taste. Read this ar­ti­cle to learn how to make that de­li­cious cup of cof­fee.

Di­a­bet­ics can use Ste­via as a re­place­ment sweet­en­er for sug­ar. Ste­via is nat­ur­al and comes from plants, so that it is go­ing to sweet­en with­out adding ex­tra glu­cose to your blood and more weight to your body. It is read­i­ly avail­able in health food shops and high­er-end gro­ceries.

If you drink cof­fee the right way, it can be quite healthy. Cof­fee alone doesn’t neg­a­tive­ly af­fect your health, but when sug­ars and creams are added, it does. In­stead, use al­mond milk and put a lit­tle hon­ey in it.

Keep your cof­fee stored in con­tain­ers that do not al­low air to en­ter. Air makes cof­fee beans stale. Steer clear of valved bags, be­cause they lose their air-tight qual­i­ty once the seal is com­pro­mised. They al­low air to es­cape af­ter roast­ing while cool­ing.

Avoid re­heat­ing brewed cof­fee. It won’t ac­tu­al­ly hurt you, but you will not en­joy your cof­fee as much. Cof­fee will not taste as good af­ter about thri­ty mintues of be­ing on heat. This old, re­heat­ed cup may come across tast­ing ex­tra-bit­ter or worse.

If brew­ing at home, cof­fee can pre­vent cab­in fever. The ma­jor­i­ty of cof­fee shops of­fer free Wifi. So, sim­ply get your lap­top and en­joy drink­ing cof­fee and work­ing there. Restau­rant al­so of­fer the same fea­ture.

Be aware of how the wa­ter you use when you brew cof­fee can af­fect the end re­sult. Cof­fee made with ter­ri­ble tast­ing wa­ter is not go­ing to taste right it­self. It is sug­gest­ed that you use wa­ter with min­er­als. If you do not do this your cof­fee will come out tast­ing very bit­ter.

Make an ef­fort to buy cof­fee that is pes­ti­cide-free. 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.

Fresh­ly roast­ed beans are a ne­ces­si­ty for the very best cof­fee. When buy­ing whole beans, be sure to check the ex­pi­ra­tion and roast­ing dates. Spe­cial­ty stores are su­pe­ri­or to gro­cery stores when buy­ing cof­fee beans.

There is no need for you to freeze your cof­fee. You may not re­al­ize it, but cof­fee can take on the smell and fla­vors of food it is near. Keep­ing your cof­fee in an opaque, air­tight con­tain­er is a great place to store your cof­fee; make sure it is room tem­per­a­ture. If you re­al­ly want to freeze or re­frig­er­ate it, use a seal­able freez­er bag.

Pur­chase fair trade cof­fee, and you can help out third-world coun­tries. It may be cost­lier, but it is tasti­er and friend­ly to the world. In ad­di­tion to a great cup of cof­fee, you will be sup­port­ing small farmer co­op­er­a­tives in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries.

Turn to your pantry to find un­usu­al sweet­en­ers that you can use to add some zest to your cof­fee. Brown and raw sug­ars add dis­tinc­tive fla­vors com­pared to plain white sug­ar. Check your bak­ing sup­plies for fla­vor ex­tracts like vanil­la and nut­meg to en­hance your cup of cof­fee. If you en­joy your cof­fee with milk or cream­er, try us­ing non-dairy al­ter­na­tives like rice or soy milk.

Cof­fee is good, but don’t drink too much. Drink­ing too much cof­fee can de­hy­drate you. When you drink cof­fee, try to off­set the ef­fects by drink­ing two cups of wa­ter. More than even a sin­gle cup of cof­fee can leave you a bit de­hy­drat­ed. Be care­ful of how much you drink.

Once the cof­fee is fin­ished brew­ing, re­move the urn from the brew­er. When you leave the cof­fee on too long, the fla­vors will evap­o­rate. If you don’t plan on drink­ing it all, put the re­main­ing amount in­to in­su­lat­ed con­tain­ers so that it re­mains warm.

If you have trou­ble sleep­ing at night, cut off your cof­fee drink­ing be­fore 3PM. While cof­fee tastes great and is a great start to your day, the caf­feine con­tained in cof­fee can keep you awake long past your reg­u­lar bed­time. Try avoid­ing caf­feine af­ter 3 PM, and ex­plore which sched­ule lets you sleep best.

Af­ter learn­ing about your op­tions, you are ready to de­cide on how your next cup of cof­fee can be made. Maybe you want to try it a few dif­fer­ent ways. Maybe you al­ready love cof­fee, but are in­ter­est­ed in try­ing some­thing new. Re­mem­ber the tips you’ve read here as you make your next batch of cof­fee.
