Do you consider yourself an expert on coffee who knows everything about it? Even if you are a coffee expert there is always more things that you can learn. In this article, you will be given tips to not only extend your coffee knowledge, but to also make your next cup the best cup you have ever had.
Better quality is more expensive. To get the best possible cup of coffee choose your beans and equipment carefully. If you opt for the cheaper alternative, you will constantly be disappointed.
If you’re diabetic, you can use Stevia in lieu of sugar. Stevia is completely natural and comes from plants; therefore, it can sweeten your coffee without the added glucose that can impact your weight. It can be found in fine grocers and health food stores.
Always store your coffee in an airtight container. If air does get in, the beans will take the odors of the surrounding foods. Bulk coffee bags are also a bad choice, as they lose flavor fast after they are opened. Their only purpose is for letting air escape when they cool after roasting.
Stir the coffee in the pot immediately after brewing it. Quickly stirring the coffee will bring out its aroma and flavor. This imparts a richer taste and that delightful coffee fragrance that everyone loves.
Don’t grind whole coffee beans until you’re ready to use them. This is due to coffee losing its flavor after being ground. Grinding your coffee beans in advance will result in weaker-tasting coffee.
Do you think the coffee that comes from your machine could taste better? In order to enjoy better tasting coffee, allow the machine to run with just water beforehand so that it can heat up. When you have a pot of water heated up, brew again with coffee grounds. This is the way you should clean out your coffee maker.
As previously mentioned, you probably didn’t know all there is to know about coffee. However, you sure know a lot more now. Perhaps these tips will also impress your friends!
