Most of us can’t start the day without a good cup of coffee. We present you 5 simple rules to get the perfect breakfast coffee.
Rule Number One: Buy Fresh Beans.
Fresh beans still have that rich flavor we so much adore. The best places to buy fresh coffee from is a local store. You can buy it roasted, or you can roast it yourself. Roast coffee is best consumed within a few days after roasting so keep in mind to buy just the amount you would drink in the following couple of days. Buying coffee from local supermarkets is not a good idea. Even the one kept in storage tubes loses its quality, as it is exposed to light and oxygen.
Rule Number Two: Look For High Quality Coffee
If you are a coffee fan, you might as well delight yourself with high quality Arabica. Choose the 100% pure Arabica beans. Unlike Robusta, Arabica the perfect combination of caffeine content and flavor. You may have not given any thought to such details until now, but if you are to drink one of the most common liquors in the world, you might as well be informed of the numerous types of beans and ways to obtain great coffee.
Rule Number Three: Prepare It High Style
Use bottled spring water, avoid the cheap filters if you are using any, and keep your coffee maker squeaky clean. And one more thing! It is important to know that the perfect brewing temperature is 200 degrees F, of 45 seconds off a full boil. Too much boiling could make it more bitter. Reheating it will turn it even bitterer.
