Sitting down with a nice cup of coffee in the morning is a great way to wake up and take a few moments to yourself before rushing out the door. But how is your coffee tasting? It's easy to get used to a routine and find yourself not really enjoying the taste of your trusted coffee. The great news is that there are some simple steps you can take to give your brew a boost.
It's easy to pick up the same coffee you've been drinking for years, but today's coffee selection is vast and impressive. From the local coffee shop to the grocery store, there are many great coffees available to explore.
A well-roasted coffee bean doesn't have to cost a lot, either. You can find some quality and affordable coffees if you're willing to give unknown brands a try. Simply look for the one-pound bags and sample different roasts as well. The right bean for you is out there, you just have to find it!
How to store your coffee beans properly
Once you get those coffee beans home, they need to be stored the right way. That means an air-tight container that is placed in a cool, dark, and dry location—not the freezer. If you use a clear container, place it in a cupboard away from the heat of your appliances.
Measure the beans
Each brewing method will require a different ratio of ground coffee beans and water. Use too little and you have no flavor; too much and you get thick mud.
The key is to find the perfect amount of beans for your brewer and how many cups you make at a time. A standard drip machine, for instance, uses 1 tablespoon of coffee for every cup of water. If needed, measure your beans with a kitchen scale to the perfect amount for your taste and brewing technique.
Find the best grinder
You have a lot of options when it comes to a coffee grinder and everyone is going to find a personal preference. Some electric options automatically grind the beans as finely as you want, while others require you to learn it on your own.
Once you find the best grinder for you, it's time to match the size of the coffee grounds to your brewing technique. Generally, finer grinds are used for espresso while medium grinds are good for drip machines. You'll use coarse grinds for cold brews or things like the French press. When in doubt, look to the manufacturer's recommendations for your brewer and make adjustments from there.
