Start Spending A Lot Less On Your Coffee!

November 13, 2013


Nothing jolts you back to life like a good steaming cup of coffee. But, that does not mean figuring out how to make the best coffee is easy. The flavor, brand and coffee shop choices are endless. Keep reading to get several great tips for making the process easier.
If weight concerns or diabetes are troubling you, think about using Stevia in place of sugar. Because Stevia uses all-natural sweetening ingredients, it is a healthy way to lighten up your coffee without adding glucose or calories. Grocery stores and health stores carry Stevia.
Do not reheat leftover coffee. It won’t actually hurt you, but you will not enjoy your coffee as much. Coffee will not taste as good after about thrity mintues of being on heat. Coffees like these taste really bitter and odd, compared to regular.
If brewing at home, coffee can prevent cabin fever. Most coffee shops have free internet connectivity. If you work from your computer, taking your laptop to a coffee house could be a nice change. Many restaurants also now offer this option.
When you get a new coffee maker, try a test run. What that means is using water and running it as if you were really making coffee. That helps get rid of any dust that got into the machine while it was at the store on the shelf.
Make sure water you use clean, fresh water in your coffee making. Coffee tastes only as good as water you use for it. You might want to taste your water before brewing with it.
Invest in a basic coffee grinder. Freshly ground beans retain more oil and will produce a richer, more aromatic cup of coffee. A majority of the models let you adjust the texture of the grind in order to suit various styles of brewing. Many coffee makers come with built-in grinders which will help free up counter space.
If you like strong, robust coffee, use a French press. French presses get more flavorful coffee because the squeeze out extra oil from the coffee beans. If you use a regular coffee pot, the oil might soak into the filter.
Coffee shop coffee can be pricey, but every once in a while it can be a tasty treat. For a sumptuous topping, why not use flavored whipped creams, chocolate shavings or ground nutmeg. You might also spring for a delicious espresso.
Carefully monitor the amount of water you put in your coffee machine. Without enough water, the flavor will be overpowering. Conversely, too much water and you’ll have weak tasting coffee. A good guideline is to use 16 ounces of water for every 8-ounce cup of coffee.
For the best tasting cup of coffee, use beans that have been roasted quite recently. If you’re buying whole beans, check their expiration date and when they’ve been roasted. Instead of buying your coffee beans in a grocery store, it is a good idea to get them at a coffee shop or specialty store.
