What are the 3 Biggest No-Nos when Making Coffee?

What are the 3 Biggest No-Nos when Making Coffee?

 

1. NOT USING FRESH COFFEE BEANS

It is easier to tell stale coffee beans but the old-but-not-stale ones may be hard to identify and they can drastically affect the quality of your brew. If the coffee beans sit for too long on the shelves, the volatile compounds will slowly dissipate resulting in a bland cup of coffee.

Buy fresh, just like you do with green leafy vegetables, milk, and bread. When you buy roasted coffee beans next time, make sure you it is recently roasted - At Going Native Coffee Club we roast in the morning and ship it to you in the afternoon. An important tip is to drink your coffee when it’s still hot because the chemical reactions that continue post brewing process can ruin your coffee.

2. BUYING CHEAP COFFEE INSTEAD OF BUYING QUALITY BEANS

The attractive discount on low-brand coffee beans may look tempting and urge you to save money on your daily cuppa, but think again. Do you really want to put price over quality to have a grimace on your face as you sip on your morning coffee?

Keep cost cutting for other not so important things in life. A cup of coffee can make or break your day, so spare yourself the nightmare of bargain coffee at the supermarket just to save a couple of collars. Buy only the premium quality beans that feel great on your taste buds!

3. NOT MAINTAINING THE RIGHT WATER-GROUND RATIO WHILE BREWING

When you wake up six in the morning and kick yourself out of bed reluctantly, you may not be in the mood to do any calculations. If you carelessly toss a few spoons into the filter and pour water without measuring, chances are your cup of mud will taste terrible.

While your taste buds may excuse your early morning mistakes, spare a moment for the right measurements on other occasions. I would suggest that you invest in a kitchen scale. Keep a measuring scoop accessible so that you can treat yourself with a spectacular cup of coffee every morning.

Tip - If you make you coffee to strong for your liking, then you can always add more hot water after the coffee is made. But you cannot make weak coffee stronger.
