Sip Up These Handy Coffee Tidbits Of Advice

Do you con­sid­er your­self an ex­pert on cof­fee who knows every­thing about it? Think again. This ar­ti­cle in­cludes tips to mak­ing the best cof­fee ever.

Cof­fee has health ben­e­fits if con­sumed in the right way. Cof­fee alone is not that bad, but added cream and sug­ar are dan­ger­ous. To make it health­i­er, try us­ing al­mond milk, hon­ey, or ste­via in­stead of your nor­mal cof­fee ad­di­tions.

Those of you who brew cof­fee them­selves should stir the cof­fee af­ter it has fin­ished brew­ing. Just a quick stir can re­al­ly bring out coffee’s aro­ma and fla­vor. When served, the cof­fee will have a rich taste that is char­ac­ter­is­tic of good cof­fee.

Most peo­ple know that stor­ing cof­fee in your freez­er can pre­serve its use­ful life, but not every­one knows that this should be done for no longer than three months. By freez­ing cof­fee be­yond three months, you run the risk of los­ing fla­vor.

Good wa­ter is es­sen­tial for good cof­fee. Bot­tled wa­ter, while adding to the cost, can re­al­ly im­prove the qual­i­ty of your cof­fee. If us­ing bot­tled wa­ter does not in­ter­est you, at least get a pu­ri­fi­er to add to your faucet. You will not get the same taste as bot­tled but it will be bet­ter than tap wa­ter.

Al­ways add the right amount of wa­ter to your cof­fee mak­er when brew­ing. If you mis­judge and have too lit­tle, your cof­fee will have a very strong fla­vor. Too much wa­ter can make it weak. Try adding about two cups and you should be in good shape.

A cof­fee blend’s fla­vor is de­ter­mined large­ly by the ori­gin of the beans. There­fore, try some dif­fer­ent blends rather than pur­chas­ing your usu­al blends. Prices shouldn’t in­flu­ence your choice since you may boost en­er­gy more with one blend. This would cause you to drink less than a weak­er blend.

Fresh­ly roast­ed beans make the best cof­fee. Al­ways look at the ex­pi­ra­tion and roast dates of whole beans that you buy. For the fresh­est cof­fee, pur­chase from a cof­fee shop or spe­cial­ty store rather than a gro­cery store.

Are you fail­ing when it comes to du­pli­cat­ing cof­fee-house cof­fee at home? If so, use more cof­fee. A lot of cof­fee shops put two ta­ble­spoon­fuls of cof­fee in­to 6 ounces of wa­ter. Try dif­fer­ent ra­tios of cof­fee to wa­ter to get the fla­vor that you like best.

When­ev­er you mea­sure the wa­ter and cof­fee grounds, you should think about the num­ber of cups you wish to cre­ate. A cup of cof­fee is not re­al­ly a cup as it is on­ly around six ounces. You should use around 2 TBS of cof­fee in this 6 oz of wa­ter. If you use more than that, your cof­fee will be too wa­tery.

Fair trade cof­fee is a great way to sup­port de­vel­op­ing coun­tries. While it may cost a lit­tle more, you’ll know that the peo­ple pick­ing the beans are mak­ing fair wages rather than “slave wages,” and you’ll al­so find the taste to be of bet­ter qual­i­ty. You’re get­ting great cof­fee and help­ing out strug­gling farm­ers in third-world coun­tries at the same time.

If you drink it black, cof­fee can as­sist with burn­ing fat. Drink­ing cof­fee with sug­ar may negate this ef­fect, how­ev­er. Con­sid­er hav­ing a cup of black cof­fee pri­or to break­fast as a method of weight con­trol.

As this ar­ti­cle al­ready stat­ed, you were prob­a­bly un­aware of the true ins and outs of cof­fee be­fore read­ing the above ad­vice. How­ev­er, since you have re­viewed this in­for­ma­tion, you now know how to make a re­al­ly good cup of cof­fee. If you’re lucky maybe this ad­vice will even im­press peo­ple around you.
