Ever wanted to taste the best coffee of your life while in the comfort of your own home? Now you can, thanks to the tips we've set up below. Now it doesn’t matter if you’re a coffee fan or someone who grabs a cup of joe without asking questions, these tips can help you to enjoy a better drinking experience. You don’t need to have experience working as a barista. Just a willingness to learn and experiment.
Experiment With Different Brands
If you want to enjoy better coffee, you have to start with the type of coffee you're consuming. The type of bean you get can greatly change the type of drink you get in the end. Is it organic? Where do the beans originate? What are the quality standards of the company that farms and packages the beans? All of these answers can affect your drink.
Buy Whole Bean Coffee
Once you’ve picked a brand, stick with buying whole beans and not ground ones. The reason is simple, they’re fresher. Otherwise, you’re getting ground coffee that’s been that way for weeks.
Next, you might want to get a scale so that you can keep to specific measurements. Plus, then you won’t be grinding an unnecessary amount and thus ruining the freshness of your beans.
You also want to be mindful of how you store your beans. Get a good group of jars or ceramic canister ready. Anything that can seal air in tightly. That way, you can ensure the freshness.
Use Filtered Water
But it’s not just the beans that are a concern, so is the water. Get a water filter to make sure the water you use is free of metals and other materials. It’ll make a cleaner, fresher cup of coffee.
In general, make sure to clean your equipment regularly. But that part’s just common sense.
Play With Spices
If you want to play with flavor even more, add a few spices to your drink. There’s a reason that coffee shops throw in mocha, cinnamon, and even paprika into their signature drinks. Because the extra flavor tastes good!
Steam Your Milk
Lastly, steaming your milk can make your coffee taste professional and impressive. So, consider getting an electric milk frother. If you don’t want to buy extra equipment, there are methods for frothing milk in your microwave. Here’s some info on how to do that.
