Do you look forward to the delicious taste of coffee in the morning? You’re not alone! Do you purchase the same brand of coffee because you are too busy to consider other options? Why not try something different? Use this advice prior to having your next cup of coffee.
Do not grind your coffee beans until it is time to brew them. The coffee begins to lose flavor immediately upon grinding. Do not try to grind all of it ahead or you will be treated to a weaker grade of coffee.
When you buy coffee beans, never keep them in the bag they came in after you have opened them. You must place them into an airtight container to protect them from air and light. This simple step helps to preserve the beans’ freshness.
Many things can go in the freezer to help them last a long time, but remember that coffee should only stay there for three months or less. If you do, it will begin to get stale.
When purchasing a new coffee maker, always give it a trial run. Run water through it as if you are making coffee. This cleans out aromas, dirt, dust and debris that might have taken hold during manufacture and transport to the store.
If you want good coffee, you have to use quality water. You may want to use bottled water; even though you may think bottled water is a waste of money, it will make your coffee taste better. If you do not want to spend money on bottled water, consider getting a filter that fits on your faucet. Though the effect is not identical, the coffee you make will still be better than it might otherwise be.
Now that you’re armed with the tips from this article, you probably want to experiment on your own. Is there a coffee that you have been yearning to try? Do you have anyone to share the experience with? Go take her on a romantic outing to the coffee store — and to a new coffee lounge.
