In a society of eager coffee drinkers, you would think that we would have tasty coffee-making down to an art? Nonetheless, for many people it doesn’t seem to be the case. For most of us, an exceptional cup of coffee is something we think can only be found in a coffee shop. To get us through the day we may count on an instant home-brew, but for coffee we can savor – truly enjoy – we wait for the weekend or a meet up with friends, when we know our preferred coffee chain will have something for us.
But what if delicious coffee became a day to day occurrence, not just something restricted to the odd treat? We say that this is how it ought to be! Here are some of the best kept coffee secrets to help you make coffee like a pro – in the comfort of your own home.
1.Buy Whole Beans
This may sound obvious, but too many people still opt for instant coffee over whole bean. However, the primary advantage of buying whole bean is that it offers a depth of taste that is impossible for instant coffee to match. Whole beans preserve the taste of the coffee, whereas instant has a tendency to grow stale quickly.
2.Replenish Your Coffee Supply Every 2-3 Weeks
This takes us to the next essential tip – replacing your supply of coffee beans regularly. For an exceptional tasting coffee, you need to be using the freshest beans possible.
Try buying your beans on a fortnightly basis – a small bag should see you through. Frequently buying fresh beans should prove just as cost-effective as instant, but with more taste!
3.Use A High Quality Grinder
Why the need to purchase a coffee grinder? Lots of people may argue that a coffee grinder is too expensive a luxury. Nevertheless, as opposed to making regular trips to your local Starbucks, why not save the money and put it aside for your very own grinder instead?
A high-quality grinder is usually a one-off purchase, making it a worthwhile expense. Better still, when you have your grinder you can make delicious, home-roasted coffee whenever you want and as often as you want – all in the convenience of your home.
4.Go Easy On The Milk
Have you got into the habit of drowning your coffee in unnecessary amounts of milk and sugar? When people do this, it is usually a habit they have formed to cover up the bad taste of all the poor-quality coffee they have been drinking.
Once you’ve switched to drinking the good stuff, you don’t want to miss out on all of the fresh, rich flavors your new coffee beans are creating. However, to mix things up every once and a while, you might like to experiment with some exciting varieties of coffee syrup.
