I really enjoy a good cup of coffee. Especially on the weekends as I’m starting my day. There is just something about a quiet Saturday morning with my favorite coffee that sets the tone for the rest of the weekend.
I use to think there was some magic or secret coffee brewing tips that I was just missing. My coffee was good, but it never tasted as good as my local coffee shop could brew it. I started to wonder if i could ever brew the perfect cup of coffee at home?
Now I do and you can too. With these secret coffee brewing tips you can master the perfect cup of coffee right at home.
Secret Coffee Brewing Tips
Before you bolt on me here, let me tell you it is much easier than you may be thinking. These few secret coffee brewing tips are really no secret. It is just that the average coffee drinker has created a habit routine that they don’t even know they are in.
Let me explain as I use to have this same habit. I just didn’t know better.
First Secret: Most coffee drinkers, and you may be in this category, buy their coffee from the grocery store or big box store. You get the bulk ground coffee that you have always “thought you enjoyed” or maybe a K-Cup of pod of sorts. It’s time to quit buying bulk ground coffee.
Second Secret: Beans are better. That’s right, whole coffee beans are much better than ground coffee. If you insist on buying from your grocery store, I suppose it is up to you but if you want better coffee, the next secret coffee brewing tip is the one that trumps them all.
Best Secret: The number one coffee brewing secret for the perfect mastered cup of coffee at home is to buy whole beans from small batch coffee roasters. Not the bulk stuff that your grandmother bought, but speciality coffee. The secret is in the right beans roasted to perfection.
Small Batch Coffee Roasters
If you are like me, I too use to buy the K-Cups. I then switched to bulk ground and a refillable K-Cup. The coffee was much better than this way, but when I started getting whole bean coffee from small batch roasters, my entire coffee drinking experience changed.
I bought a small coffee grinder, ground my own beans then used my refillable K-Cup filter for a much better coffee.
You see, the secret to brewing the perfect cup of coffee at home is in the beans. When you get them from the speciality roasters, first, they are roasted to perfection. They stay fresh longer and the results in your cup are fantastic.
There you have it. A few of my secret coffee brewing tips that will have you wondering why you never tried this before.
One last tip. Many of the small batch coffee roasters sell their specialty coffee on Amazon and other online retail outlets. So regardless of where you buy, just be sure you are getting whole coffee beans from a small batch roaster.
What you find in your cup will make a world of difference.
Enjoy your next cup of speciality coffee.
