There are many methods for brewing a great cup of coffee. The method you choose is based on your personal coffee preferences. Do you want a fuller or milder cup, cappuccino or espresso? Whatever method you choose, there are basic guidelines to follow for the best cup of coffee possible.
- The Equipment – Make sure that your equipment is thoroughly cleaned after each use
- The Coffee – Fresh roasted coffee is essential to a great cup of coffee. It is recommended to purchase your coffee fresh every 1-2 weeks.
- The Grind – The size of the grind is very important to the taste of your coffee. Ground too fine, your coffee may taste bitter (over extracted). Ground too coarse, your coffee may taste weak (under extracted). Be sure to check what grind is recommended for your method of brewing. If you grind your own coffee, always grind just before brewing. Most people who grind their own beans prefer using a quality burr grinder rather than a blade grinder. The burr grinder produces a consistent size grind where the blade grinder chops the beans resulting in and uneven size grind.
- The Water – The water you use is very important for the quality of your coffee. Always use cold fresh water. If your tap water has a strong taste or odor, use filtered or bottled water.
- Ratio of Coffee to Water – The general rule of thumb is 2 tablespoons or 7 grams of ground coffee for every eight ounces of water.
After your coffee has brewed, it should be enjoyed immediately!
