You Probably Didn’t Think Coffee Could Taste This Good

Be­gin­ning every­day with a morn­ing cup of ja­va is a tra­di­tion in Amer­i­ca. Whether you make it your­self or buy it from the cof­fee shop, it is a great way to start the day. The ar­ti­cle be­low con­tains great tips about this ex­cit­ing bev­er­age.

There are many won­der­ful sin­gle cup cof­fee mak­ers on the mar­ket that are great for when there is on­ly one cof­fee drinker in the house. This ma­chine of­fers dif­fer­ent fla­vors and you can make just one cup at a time. There are sev­er­al cof­fee mak­ers with many dif­fer­ent fea­tures.

You can choose from a large num­ber of cof­fee types. Some peo­ple can’t get enough of the rich­ness of dark roast, while oth­ers want their cof­fee to be less rich and more mild. Be­sides the typ­i­cal roast­ed cof­fee, dif­fer­ent fla­vors like choco­late or blue­ber­ry are avail­able. Or, you can change the fla­vor through cream­ers and oth­er ad­di­tions.

Do you need to cut down on sug­ar? There are al­ter­na­tives for sweet­en­ing your cof­fee. Agave nec­tar is rel­a­tive­ly new to most gro­cery stores in the past few years, and the great thing about it is that it will not af­fect your blood sug­ar. Ste­via and Splen­da al­so work well to sweet­en cof­fee.

In or­der to boost the fla­vor of your cof­fee, think about us­ing a French press. This press will squeeze out more oil from the beans in­to the cup. Pa­per fil­ters used in reg­u­lar cof­fee ma­chines tend to ab­sorb those oils that are so rich in fla­vor.

The way a cof­fee tastes most­ly comes from where the beans were grown. There­fore, try some dif­fer­ent blends rather than pur­chas­ing your usu­al blends. Price shouldn’t be the ma­jor fac­tor in your choice, be­cause you might get in­creased en­er­gy from dif­fer­ent types and won’t drink as much as you do of the weak­er kind you’re used to.

Coffee Beans

For the per­fect cup of cof­fee use fresh roast­ed cof­fee beans. Buy­ers of whole cof­fee beans should find out when the beans were roast­ed by check­ing their ex­pi­ra­tion date. Al­so, best qual­i­ty beans are bought from a cof­fee shop or spe­cial­ty store.

You don’t need to use your freez­er to store cof­fee. In fact, cof­fee can pick up fla­vors and smells from neigh­bor­ing foods. An op­ti­mal spot for stor­ing cof­fee is a non-translu­cent con­tain­er that is air tight. If you must freeze or re­frig­er­ate it, put it in­to a freez­er bag that is com­plete­ly sealed.

Do you find it hard to brew a rich cup of cof­fee, like what you can get at a cof­fee shop? Try us­ing more cof­fee. For every six ounce mea­sure­ment of wa­ter, cof­fee shops will use two ta­ble­spoons at most of cof­fee. Try dif­fer­ent pro­por­tions to see what the best is for your par­tic­u­lar taste.

Think about how much cof­fee you are go­ing to make when you mea­sure the wa­ter and the grounds. A mea­sur­ing cup is eight ounces and a stan­dard cof­fee cup is on­ly six ounces. The best ra­tio is about 2 tb­sp. of cof­fee to 6 ounces wa­ter. Us­ing an of­fi­cial mea­sur­ing cup makes for a weak blend.

You should not have your first cup be­fore the brew is fin­ished. While you can do this with some ma­chines, the cof­fee qual­i­ty will not be as good. Get a cof­fee mak­er with a timer as an al­ter­na­tive. ‘ If you do this, your cof­fee will be all ready when you get up in the morn­ing.

If some­thing tastes “off” in your morn­ing brew, re­mem­ber that un­pleas­ant wa­ter will re­sult in un­pleas­ant cof­fee. If the tap wa­ter isn’t tasty, try get­ting a fil­ter for it. One op­tion is to use on­ly bot­tled wa­ter to pre­pare your cof­fee, or you might con­sid­er pur­chas­ing a pitch­er that con­tains a fil­ter.

Iced Coffee

When mak­ing iced cof­fee at home, do not use the tra­di­tion­al method of sim­ply mak­ing the cof­fee and pour­ing it over ice cubes. This wa­ters down the cof­fee. You should in­stead used brewed cof­fee to fill your ice cube trays. This will al­low the iced cof­fee cubes to keep your cof­fee from be­com­ing too wa­tered down.

Af­ter you’ve read this ad­vice, you should know more about mak­ing the best cof­fee you can at home. You can avoid buy­ing cof­fee from cof­fee shops and en­joy it be­cause you made it.
