Are You A Coffee Lover? Read These Tips.

While a lot of people like drinking coffee, many of them do not know how to make a good

cup of it. All any coffee lover needs is a few tips to show them how. This article can help you

always make great coffee.

The best way to get iced coffee in a hurry is to make it ahead of time via cold brewing. This

involves brewing with just grounds, water, a fine filter, and if you like, some milk. You can

easily do this before bed. By the next morning, you'll have refreshing iced coffee that is ready

to drink.

For best coffee flavor, buy whole beans. Then, grind only the amount that you plan on using.

You will find that your coffee has a stronger flavor. You will also use less product to make

that fabulous taste. Additionally, you can create custom blends using different beans, so that

you can impress your friends.

Always store your coffee beans or grinds in a dark, cool, airtight container. Even better, use a

vacuum container. Storing your coffee in such a container helps keep your coffee smelling

and tasting fresh for a long time. Store the container in the fridge or freezer to maximize


There are so many types of coffee from which to choose. There are those who like dark

roasted beans, while some prefer milder flavors. Flavored coffees, such as hazelnut and

raspberry, are abundant as well. You can even buy creamer that is flavored so you can have

many different choices.

If you drink your coffee cold, think past just traditional cream and sugar. Mix entire fruits

into your coffee. You can add foods like oranges, cherries and strawberries for interesting

additions to the flavor. Even think about spicing things up with cinnamon or cardamom. The

possibilities for you are nearly endless!

Rinse off your coffee filter before placing it inside of the coffee maker. The coffee filters may

have fibers or plastic on them when you take them out of the plastic packaging. If you leave

these items on the filter, they will end up in your coffee when it brews.

You do not need to tip the barista at a coffee shop the same percentage as you do a waitress

or a hairdresser. Your hairdresser has to understand precisely what you want and then do it,

and a waitress has multiple tables to keep up with exactly everyone's order. Your barista

mixes up one cup at a time, so do not feel guilty for tipping him or her less. Still, do throw a

few coins in the tip jar frequently.

You should brew your coffee from water that has been purified or with spring water. The

coffee that you brew has so many different factors. For this reason, using quality water can

make a big difference.

If you grind your own coffee, be sure to only grind the amount you will be using that day. If

you grind too much and just leave your coffee around, the elements will take the freshness

and taste of it. Contrary to what many believe, storing coffee in the refrigerator does not leave

it fresh.

To ensure that your coffee stays fresh as long as possible, avoid grinding all your beans at

once. Once ground, heat and humidity will rob your coffee of the fragrant oils that provide

much of its flavor. Instead, only grind the amount of coffee you will use for a day or two.

Doing so will help you maximize the flavor of your beans.

Do you find yourself struggling to recreate the flavor of those expensive but tasty

coffeehouse drinks? Consider using more coffee grounds. The standard ratio is 6 ounces of

water for every 2 tablespoons of coffee. Try mixing different quantities of coffee and water

until you get the taste that you want, and remember that the amount you use will depend on

the blend.

Many people use bacon soda to keep smells from permeating refrigerators, but used coffee

grounds have the same effect. Coffee acts like a natural sponge, and it will absorb any odors

it comes in contact with. This is why you should place a small dish of them in your

refrigerator to keep odors at bay.

If you notice a bad taste in your coffee, keep in mind that poor quality water is sure to

produce undesirable coffee flavor. If the water from you tap always tastes bad, buy a filter to

attach to your faucet. Alternatively, there are pitchers with built-in filters that you can buy

and keep in your fridge.

Are you wary of adding sugar to your coffee, but still want it to taste like it has been

sweetened? Consider adding warm milk to your coffee. Warm milk not only tastes sweet, but

can function as a cream replacement, as well. It is a healthy alternative to both cream and


You don't have to waste money on fancy coffees. Unless you're really picky, it's unlikely that

you'll notice a great difference between blends of coffee. Often, the plainest coffees will be

the ones you enjoy most. There is nothing wrong with buying cheap coffee if it satisfies your

coffee needs.

If you have strong smells on your hands that will not come out, you should try wetting your

hands and then scrubbing them with some used coffee grounds. They will absorb any odors

on your hands and have them smelling fresh and clean in no time. Make sure that you rinse

them well after you are done.

Try pre-wetting coffee filters. This helps heat glass and ceramic brewers, along with rinsing

away extra flavors that dry paper filters may transfer into your cup. Start by opening up the

filter, then placing it in your cone brewer with a pitcher or coffee mug underneath. Finish by

pouring some near-boiling water through it in order to wet all of the sides.

If you are a true coffee connoisseur, then a poorly-brewed cup of coffee makes you turn up

your nose in disgust. With the knowledge you have gained here, you now know how to easily

make the perfect cup of coffee. Every cup you make going forward has the potential to be
