While we like making coffee, it’s sometimes puzzling as to why we can’t replicate coffee shop flavor. Thankfully, the below article will provide you some tips on how to make your homemade coffee taste just as good or better!
Sugar is not an option if you suffer from diabetes, so using a substitute can help to sweeten your coffee without effecting your blood sugar levels. Stevia comes from plants and is a natural sweetener that sweetens your beverage without glucose or excess calories. It is readily available in health food shops and higher-end groceries.
Do you enjoy serving coffee to your guests? A beautifully topped latte, hand done by you, is sure to do the trick. With a bit of practice you can impress your guests. Try mixing up melted chocolate and milk and continue to practice each time you brew coffee.
Once you open a bag of coffee beans, don’t reuse the bag. It is far better to put them inside an air-tight container that keeps out light and moisture. This keeps the beans fresher for longer.
Be certain to buy coffee made from organically grown beans because these coffees do not contain pesticide. Coffee beans are very absorbent and tend to pick things up from the soil. Pesticides will affect the flavor of your coffee. Beans that are organically grown produce the best taste.
You should never keep your coffee in the freezer for longer than three months. Keeping the coffee around longer than this tends to decrease its quality.
If your coffee maker is aged or an economy model, brew hot water before you brew the actual coffee to get the most flavor. You want to add the grounds first, and then pour the hot water into the machine. This helps provide the best flavor and very hot coffee.
Like was said earlier, being your own barista is not as easy as it looks. Use what you have learned here to get the coffee you dream of having.
