Here are 7 simple steps that you can take to produce the perfect cup of coffee every time

World Class Gourmet Coffee


For a change, a good cup of coffee would be nice. It does take some 

time and some energy to find a great cup of gourmet coffee these 

days. If you do know of a perfect coffee shop, you are one of the 

lucky ones. But, did you know that you can basically make a nice 

cup of coffee on your own from home?


Here are 7 simple steps that you can take to produce the perfect cup 

of coffee every time.


Start with quality. One of the most critical aspects of coffee drinking 

is the grade of the coffee that you start off with. If you have a 

favorite flavor, then purchase whole beans in that flavor. If you can 

do this, it will allow you to get the most fresh coffee accessible.


Grind away. Purchase a quality coffee grinder. Some of the best 

grinders available today are easy to use and easy to clean up. By 

grinding your own coffee beans, youll be able to only grind what you 

need, meaning that you will have complete freshness in your coffee.


Store It Right And Tight. It is very fundamental to store your coffee 

tightly. Air oxidizes the coffee and can make it to get bitter quickly. 

Metal canisters can also enable a metal taste to get into the coffee, 

making it taste bad.


The top solution is for a plastic or ceramic air tight container for 

your coffee and coffee beans. Also, store it at room temperature 

because the moisture in the fridge or freezer can make it go bad 

faster.


Getting To The Coffee


The Maker. The coffee maker that you use is also critical. No matter 

what style that you go with, you can get a good cup of coffee out of 

it if you take the essential steps to keeping it fresh.


For example, you should insure that the coffee maker is kept clean 

after each use. In fact, youll need to make sure that you detail clean 

it, with the assistance of vinegar, every so often as well. Your 

preferences will ultimately determine which style of coffee maker 

you will use. Make sure that it uses a permanent filter in it.


Even In The Water. Even the water that you use is central to the 

quality of the coffee you will get from it. It is essential that you use 

water that is free from chlorine and minerals.


Often, using bottled water rather than tap water will augment the 

quality of the coffee. Also, keep the water nice and hot. A good 

temperature for the water is about 200 degrees Fahrenheit.


Supply The Right Amount. It is also central for you to use the right 

quantity of coffee beans and coffee grounds in the maker. Too many 

and you will have a very strong cup of coffee and too few will make 

it to be too weak. Follow the directions provided by the coffee 

producer for the best cup of coffee.


Lastly and probably the most vital aspect of getting a great cup of 

gourmet coffee is to make sure to enjoy your coffee when it is hot 

and fresh. Most restaurants are told to keep coffee for less than thirty 

minutes, but at home, the best coffee is the coffee that hasnt sat for 

more than twenty minutes.
