The Simple Method Of Brewing Great Coffee

Nov 25, 2007
Only a few can disagree that a great day starts with a cup of rich coffee. A great flavored cup of hot coffee is a perfect way to begin your day. And most of the readers interested in this article like it that way only. The most important part in getting close to the perfect cup is brewing.

This part is quite crucial once you have selected and grinded the fine gourmet coffee beans. Of course, brewing only starts after you have grinded the coffee well.

For those who know less about it let us make it clear that the basic principal which is common to all methods of doing it is to immerse ground coffee in hot water to extract the flavor and aroma of the coffee so that the drink you get is rich in both mentioned above.

So lot many things are to be understood with absolute clarity if you are planning to brew the coffee all by yourself.

While brewing the coffee, the coffee maker also plays an important role. The most commonly used coffee maker is the one which uses drip method and so it is essential to understand how to brew the coffee using it. The least bothered about element in this process is water.

But a bit consideration to this element can drastically change the flavor of your coffee. We suggest you to use fresh filtered water. Always add fresh and cold water to your coffee maker. It is a misconception that it is better to add hot water to brew coffee.

Adding hot water directly to your coffee maker not only changes the overall flavor of the coffee but can also ruin the equipment. So better add cold water only. Another factor is cleaning the equipment. Always ensure that this device is absolutely clean as the unwanted elements like water sediments and coffee oil can add to the brewing process and will change the taste of the coffee for the worst of it.

That is why it is very essential to clean he maker regularly so that nothing gets mixed up with the process.

The most important step is to measure the proper amount of coffee for your brew. The most common method is to use two level teaspoons for every six ounces of water. You can always adjust it according to your taste to make your coffee either darker or lighter.

It is better not to trust the measurements on your coffee pot as these are often wrong and sometime it is found that the machines cup is four ounces instead of six. Another aspect to remember is to brew only the amount of coffee that you will be consuming in the next hour.

Keeping the coffee in the burner for more than this time may result in losing flavor, taste or even the aroma that eventually makes it stale.
