One of the good things about at-home coffee delivery? You are making your coffee, so you have control over how it’s made, and the taste is entirely up to you! No more burnt-tasting corporate chain cups of joe in the morning for you - you are your own barista.
If you want the best coffee possible, here are a few professional coffeehouse secrets to get you a cup of coffee that will rival anything you’ve ever bought in a shop.
Filtered Water Is King
Did you know? Most coffee shops, especially the big corporate chains, have filtered water built in to their plumbing systems. The most popular ones have their water filtered up to three times to ensure the best taste!
Fortunately for you, you don’t need triple-filtered water to have the best coffee. A simple filtering pitcher available at your local grocery store, or at online retailers like Amazon, can ensure your coffee has the best taste.
The Daily Grind
Coffee starts to lose it’s peak flavor about half an hour after being ground, which is why it’s hard to get good taste out of preground coffee, which sometimes sits on store shelves for months. Instead, choose whole bean coffee and invest in a grinder (you can find a grinder for around $20 at Walmart or Amazon - this blogger likes to use the grinder attachment on a bullet blender to the same effect!).
Grind just enough coffee for the pot you’re making just before you make it, and you’ll have coffee brewed at peak flavor!
The Secret’s In The Beans
Good beans are the beginning and end of every good cup of coffee. Oftentimes corporate coffee shops will have highly-processed, burnt-tasting beans because they’re used at such high volumes. Fortunately, here at the Finest of Coffee blog, we don’t believe in highly processed - we believed in highly flavorful.
Small-batch, whole-bean coffee is the way to go. Here are a few of our favorite blends - try one out, and let us know which is your favorite!
