Imagine this: you’re in the kitchen with your family, and making coffee. The kind that reminds you, first thing in the morning, of everything else you appreciate in life. It’s about the art, the ritual, and the moments shared across a table.
Follow these five steps to make your daily coffee experience more enriching:
Buy good coffee beans: They should be whole beans, sustainably farmed, and roasted within the past few weeks.
Grind your coffee just before brewing: Grinding your coffee just before you brew it keeps the compounds intact.
Store your coffee properly: The best way to keep coffee beans fresh is to store them on a pantry shelf in an opaque airtight container away from light, heat, and moisture.
Use the right proportion of coffee to water: A major error people make is not using enough coffee. A general guideline is 1 to 2 teaspoons of coffee for every 200 ml of water.
Focus on technique: Each brewing method has its own particular techniques, but by doing the same thing over and over, you fix your mistakes and improve incrementally.
