I’ve talked about our love of coffee several times before. Mr Chiots and I are coffee aficionados; we drink coffee like other people drink wine, talking about the depth of flavor, the crema on the espresso right after brewing, and on and on. We were super happy to find a local source for the most wonderful micro-roasted coffee, but sadly Al quit roasting to sell and we were left sans good fresh micro-roasted coffee beans. Rather than settle for mediocre, we decided to take our normal path and simply start doing it ourselves.

There is nothing more wonderful than waking up in the morning and smelling that wonderful smell of hot coffee. Millions of people around the world love that smell. Coffee is a drink to be savored and enjoyed, and here are some tips to help you make sure you can savor the perfect cup of coffee every day.

While your coffee is brewing, try soaking the coffee mugs in hot water. A cold mug will cool off your drink before you can even get it to your lips! When the coffee is ready, simply dry off the mugs and serve. This trick will keep it hot much longer.

If you love the great taste of freshly brewed coffee, stay away from the grocery store. The beans you can grind on the coffee aisle say “fresh”, but have been sitting there for quite some time. Instead, go directly to the roaster’s website. Many places will ship your beans within a day or two of roasting, giving you maximum freshness!

Do not use distilled water to brew coffee. Distilled water has had the minerals removed through a special process. The brewing coffee needs those minerals to interact with to enhance the flavor and quality of the coffee. Use filtered water from the tap or bottled spring water for best results.

Protect your coffee by putting it into an air-tight container. Keep it away from heat, light and air. This will help your coffee to stay fresh instead of turning rancid, and you will get a better tasting cup of coffee out of it too. Try an opaque container for best results.

If you are wanting a safe way to break from your favorite everyday coffee and try something new, try to narrow down what it is you like best about your tried and true brew. Pay attention to where your beans are brewed as well as to whether you are using a light or dark roast.

If you like strong coffee, avoid using a coarse grind. This is one of the most common causes for people thinking their coffee is too weak. If you do not grind your own, you may discover that a darker roast will help you. Either way, you want to create coffee that you enjoy.

Do not leave coffee, in the pot, sitting on the burner for a long time. The heat from the burner can scald the coffee very quickly. This so affects the flavor of the coffee that reputable coffee shops pour out any coffee that has been sitting on a burner for 20 minutes.

Clean your coffee grinder with uncooked white rice. Add a couple of tablespoons of dry rice to your grinder and turn it on. When the rice is ground, empty the grinder and repeat until the rice no longer contains flecks of brown. The rice binds to the oils and coffee particles that cling to the grinder and can turn rancid.

You can use coffee to bring the shine back to hair that looks worn and dull. Brew some extra strong coffee then allow it to cool. Place it on hair that is clean and dry and leave it on for 15-20 minutes. After that, rinse your hair and style it as you normally would.

Rinse filters before you use them for coffee. Many people just put their filters into their machines without realizing there can be some stray fibers of paper. Rinse the filter quickly and you will ensure that those fibers don’t give you the taste of paper in your morning coffee cup.

Organic Coffee

To get the cleanest taste and least negative effects from your coffee habit, consider trying organic coffee. Because coffee beans absorb the flavor of virtually everything they are exposed to, those that are processed with chemicals tend to have a muted or distorted flavor. On the other hand, organic coffee beans offer a very clean and pure brew.

Now that you have these tips under your belt, you should be the envy of everyone you know. You can now make that perfect cup of coffee that will wake you up and keep you moving all day long. Keep these tips in mind every day and enjoy your coffee!
