Consider using a French press for brewing rich, flavorful coffee. Coffee makers can leech out some of the flavor in coffee because of the coffee filter. A French press doesn’t have filters, but it has a plunger which forces the beans to the very bottom. This increases the amount of flavorful oils in your container.
Your coffee should be kept in a container that is airtight. Overexposure to the air may compromise the taste and texture of your coffee. Avoid bags that can not be resealed after you open them. These leak air after they have cooled.
Buy your coffee directly from the roaster. You can do this easily online these days. A lot of places are willing to ship directly to you. Your coffee will arrive within a couple of days. This is the way to get the freshest roast coffee to drink every morning with breakfast.
Do not leave your coffee open any longer than necessary. While preparing your coffee, don’t open the can or bag until you are ready to scoop. Immediately after scooping, close the coffee container. This will keep your coffee fresher longer. It also keeps the flavor and aroma from evaporating in the air.
Does your coffee get stale because you cannot drink it fast enough? You should store it in an airtight container. Put your weekly dose of coffee into a smaller container and keep it in your freezer so it stays fresh. Store the rest of your coffee in a larger airtight container and open it only when you need to refill your smaller container.
To save money by buying bulk coffee without sacrificing flavor, measure out what you plan to use immediately and store it at room temperature. Coffee tastes best when it is brewed from room temperature grounds. Coffee you plan to use within the next week can go in the refrigerator, and the remaining beans or grounds should go in the freezer.
Get yourself a good coffee grinder. When you grind your own beans immediately before brewing them, your coffee will maintain its aroma and flavor. You typically have the ability to change the grind’s coarseness, which will let you brew how you would like. Many coffee makers come with a built in grinder so you don’t have to have have a machine for grinding and then another for brewing.
The taste of a certain blend of coffee mostly depends on where the beans come from. You should experiment with various brands and blends of coffee. Don’t let price be a factor, drink what you love.
