For many people, morning coffee is like a breath of fresh air. It's a start to the day, and the best way to get your brain moving. You took the time to find a super high-quality coffee, so why not get the most out of it?
We're excited to share our 5 ways to drink better coffee.
1. Buy whole bean. It's worth it.
The flavor and taste are never as good as right after you first grind it.
2. Store your coffee in a sealable container.
Keep it fresh, always. This could be an airtight container or even a zip-lock bag. The key is to keep moisture and oxygen out.
3. Use filtered water.
A brewed cup of coffee is 99% water, so honor the coffee with equally good water.
4. Choose the right grind.
You get more flavor extraction out of finely ground coffee, but run the risk of bitterness. For most coffee makers, the coffee should feel like grains of beach sand in your fingers.
5. Buy a decent coffee maker.
This is one of the most important appliances you'll have in your kitchen, and you don't have to spend a fortune to get a good one. Check out our gear section for options.
