10 Steps to the Perfect Cup

  • Make sure that your equipment is thoroughly cleaned. Leftover oils and grounds will impart strange flavors.
  • If you don’t start with quality beans, you shouldn’t expect quality coffee in the cup.
  • This also applies to the water that you use to prepare the coffee.
  • Always grind your coffee immediately before brewing.
  • Make sure that the grind of the coffee matches your method and tastes.
  • Use the right amount of coffee. A good index is 2tbsps for each 6oz cup of coffee.
  • Warm your mug before pouring the coffee in; this keeps the coffee hot longer.
  • Before serving, stir the coffee. Heavier oils and inconsistent extraction will cause differences in the consistency of the coffee.
  • If you are making more than you intend to drink, store the coffee in a thermos. The burner or warmer slowly heats the brewed coffee, destroying its flavor.
  • After going through all of this work, take the time to enjoy the fruits of your labors. Don’t gulp, savor!
