Read These Tips For Brewing A Great Cup Of Coffee!

Do you re­mem­ber the best cof­fee you ever had? Maybe you brewed it on your own, or per­haps you bought some at your lo­cal cof­fee shop? No mat­ter how you love your cof­fee, there is a per­fect method and blend for you! Read this ar­ti­cle for im­por­tant cof­fee ad­vice.

Ste­via is a rel­a­tive­ly new sug­ar sub­sti­tute that is great for di­a­bet­ics and di­eters. Ste­via is a plant-based prod­uct that adds sweet­ness with­out in­tro­duc­ing ad­di­tion­al glu­cose. Ste­via is sold in most lo­cal gro­cery stores these days.

As long as you prop­er­ly drink cof­fee, it’s ac­tu­al­ly healthy. It’s the ad­di­tives we put in cof­fee that can be un­healthy. For a health­i­er al­ter­na­tive, try some al­mond milk in your lat­te, with ste­via or hon­ey as sweet­en­ers.

Do not re­heat cof­fee that has been brewed al­ready. Many old sto­ries sug­gest that re­heat­ing re­leas­es chem­i­cals, but that isn’t true. Cer­tain chem­i­cal com­pounds that are in­side your cof­fee start break­ing down with­in 30 min­utes of brew­ing. Mi­crowaved cof­fee or cof­fee left on a hot plate start this process even faster. This will give the cof­fee a bit­ter or stale taste.

Those who work from home can use cof­fee to beat the feel­ing of cab­in fever. Most cof­fee hous­es now have free WiFi, mean­ing you can grab your lap­top and head­phones and go there for a cup of joe and the chance to work some­where oth­er than home. Many restau­rants al­so now of­fer this op­tion.

Don’t keep cof­fee beans in the orig­i­nal pack­ag­ing af­ter it’s been opened. It is vi­tal that you keep them from the air and the light. They will stay fresh for awhile this way.

To get a great cold cof­fee drink, brew a very strong amount be­fore you go to bed and let it sit in your re­frig­er­a­tor overnight. It will cool, with­out the fla­vor di­min­ish­ing. For best re­sults, add ex­tras such as sweet­en­er and milk be­fore chill­ing the cof­fee. If you use this tech­nique, you’ll wake up to some great-tast­ing iced cof­fee.

Ob­vi­ous­ly the cof­fee beans have every­thing to do with how your cof­fee is go­ing to taste. Pe­ruse your lo­cal su­per­mar­kets for any items you want. Fresh, roast­ed beans are pret­ty easy to find. If you live in a small town, con­sid­er go­ing on­line to make this pur­chase. This may be more ex­pen­sive, but you won’t pay as much as you would buy­ing it at a cof­fee­house.

Use fresh and clean wa­ter when mak­ing cof­fee. Your cof­fee is on­ly as great as the wa­ter used to make it. Try tast­ing the wa­ter be­fore us­ing it in the ma­chine.

The ori­gin of the beans will de­ter­mine what the cof­fee tastes like. You ought to ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent blends and brands rather than pur­chas­ing the same cof­fee. Do not be over­ly in­flu­enced by price, since you may not drink as much from a prici­er blend.

Fresh­ly roast­ed beans are a ne­ces­si­ty for the very best cof­fee. When buy­ing whole beans, be sure to check the ex­pi­ra­tion and roast­ing dates. Al­so, best qual­i­ty beans are bought from a cof­fee shop or spe­cial­ty store.

You don’t have to store your cof­fee in the freez­er. Cof­fee can ab­sorb fla­vors and scents from near­by food items. Your best choice is to store cof­fee in an opaque, air­tight con­tain­er in an area at or near room tem­per­a­ture. If you wish to put it in the re­frig­er­a­tor, then make sure it’s kept in sealed freez­er bags.

If you’re sick of hav­ing the same bor­ing cof­fee all the time, try adding some choco­late in your cof­fee. Some choco­late in your cof­fee will taste de­li­cious and pump up your mood. A lit­tle dark choco­late can ac­tu­al­ly be ben­e­fi­cial for your health.

In the morn­ing, you may be im­pa­tient to get the first sip of your cof­fee, but do not pour your cup be­fore the cof­fee is done brew­ing. While some ma­chines have fea­tures to do this, your coffee’s qual­i­ty will suf­fer. Think about get­ting one that has a timer. By set­ting the timer for be­fore you wake up, you can have cof­fee ready to go when you need it.

For a bit of a change, fla­vor your cof­fee with sweet­en­ers and var­i­ous fla­vors. In­stead of us­ing reg­u­lar white sug­ar, try brown sug­ar or raw sug­ar. Oth­er fla­vor ex­tracts that can make a bor­ing old cup of cof­fee taste great in­clude co­coa, vanil­la, cin­na­mon and nut­meg. In­stead of plain whole milk, stir in fla­vored op­tions like rice, soy or al­mond milk.

Burner Longer

Don’t leave your carafe on the burn­er longer than ten min­utes af­ter brew­ing your cof­fee. Leav­ing cof­fee on the burn­er longer than ten min­utes will make your cof­fee turn bit­ter. An air­tight ther­mos or in­su­lat­ed mug is a good op­tion to help keep your cof­fee nice and warm.

Take the cof­fee pot out of the cof­fee mak­er once it is done brew­ing. Leav­ing the pot in­side the cof­fee mak­er while it’s on can ru­in the coffee’s fla­vor. If you don’t plan on drink­ing it all, put the re­main­ing amount in­to in­su­lat­ed con­tain­ers so that it re­mains warm.

Avoid drink­ing cof­fee past 3pm or so. Cof­fee has lots of caf­feine; there­fore, drink­ing cof­fee late in­to the night can make you stay up way too late. It is rec­om­mend­ed that you con­sume coffee–or any caf­feinat­ed drinks–no lat­er than 3 or 4 in the af­ter­noon.

A good cof­fee mak­er can make the dif­fer­ence be­tween a good cup and a great one. Re­search cof­fee mak­ers and find the one that suits your needs. Con­sid­er that glass carafes may not keep brewed cof­fee fresh for that long, and French press­es pro­duce strong brews. If you’re the on­ly one that drinks cof­fee at your house, try get­ting a sin­gle-cup brew­er.

The one thing that this ar­ti­cle should have made clear is that there are a huge va­ri­ety of cof­fee choic­es avail­able. Doesn’t it make you want some cof­fee im­me­di­ate­ly? Keep in mind what you have learned here and en­joy your next shop­ping trip! Sit back and sip a great cup of cof­fee!
