Does this seem like an impossibility? I assure you that it is not if you know how to approach your expert coffee brewing. There are many different methods of coffee brewing for home use, so start out by deciding which you prefer the best. Is it a traditional drip brew coffee maker? A French Press? A percolator? A vacuum brewer? The choice is up to you…
To begin with, make sure that your coffee brewing equipment is completely clean after every single use. The more advanced equipment that you are using, the better you need to clean it. When the coffee is freshly roasted, it is shiny because it is coated with essential oils. These oils will leave a residue on the brewing equipment during the brew process, which can build up over time and become rancid if it is not thoroughly cleaned. No matter what brew method you are using, it is important to rinse the equipment with cold and fresh water, and then use a soap or detergent to remove the oily buildup that could negatively affect the flavor of your brew product.
It is always best to aim for brewing stronger than weaker coffee since a stronger coffee brew can easily be diluted. However, there is nothing worse than a weak and thin cup of Joe, which you will have to throw out right away and start over. It is important to use generous portions of coffee grounds when you are brewing, and it is also up to you to experiment with the amount of coffee grounds that you use per amount of water until you get the desired consistency in your Java.
Furthermore, consider what type of water you may be using. It is preferable to use filtered water with any brew method because tap water can be full of mineral buildup. These mineral deposits can cause lime scale on the inside of your coffee machine, which will affect the taste of your brew. Also, if you are brewing with a French Press or other stovetop method, then make sure that you are using fresh water. Don’t use water that may have been sitting out in a kettle overnight, but use fresh filtered water when you are boiling it to brew. Also, with a French press, it is ideal to use water that is just below the boiling point when you mix it with the fresh coffee grounds to brew. If it is boiling, it could burn the coffee grounds and cause them to become bitter.
When it comes to your professional coffee brewing at home, it is always important for it to be as fresh as possible. Try to purchase freshly roasted coffee beans from a roaster online that will ship them to you immediately, and make sure to grind them right away before you brew them. When coffee beans are ground, they can oxidize and begin to grow stale within only 30 seconds, meaning that they should be used to brew a superior cup of Joe at once!
