Buy the Freshest Beans and Then Store Them Properly
Don’t buy your coffee beans at the same place where you buy your groceries. Try to go to an authentic coffee bean seller, either at your favorite little coffee shop or somewhere else you trust.
Also, once you have these fresh beans at hand, make sure to store them in airtight containers to keep them fresher longer.
Here’s how to make the best coffee for French Press, in case you use one of these.
Don’t Skimp When It Comes To Buying Beans
If you love your morning coffee, then you will want to spend the extra moolah it takes to buy the expensive beans. Don’t skimp on that, because life is too short to drink bad coffee.
Grind Your Own
Making coffee that tastes like heaven starts by grinding your own beans. You want to grind your beans fresh every time you are planning to make some coffee. This is because coffee starts losing quality as soon as you grind it.
Don’t Use Tap Water
Are you still using chlorinated tap water to make your coffee? That’s not how you make the best coffee out there. Use bottled spring water or filtered water by putting activated charcoal filters on your tap.
Clean Your Equipment Regularly
A dirty French press never did anybody any good. Try to make it a ritual or a habit to clean your equipment weekly or biweekly so that you don’t have remnants of coffee beans sitting around ruining the next batch of coffee you prepare.
Don’t Use Cheap Filters
You get what you pay for. If you use bargain-priced coffee filters, you are going to ruin the taste of your precious coffee beans. Go for higher-end coffee filters that are oxygen-bleached or dioxin-free and notice how your coffee’s taste is enhanced tenfold.
There is even a gold-plated filter (SwissGold) that you could try to see what a difference it makes to your coffee’s taste.
Perfect Coffee Doesn’t Come Without Effort
The best things in life aren’t free, and this applies to the perfect coffee drink as well. You have to put in the effort, both with time, money, and learning to make the best coffee for yourself.
