How to Brew the Best Cup of Coffee

There’s no better method of starting your day, when the weather gets colder and the mornings darker, than with a good cup of real coffee.

Whether you love the heady taste of a strong espresso or you prefer the smooth and subtle texture of a latte, coffee is (and always will be) king. Below, we list some key tips for composing the very best, burnished brew.

Fresh Beans

The best cup of coffee is composed of fresh, newly ground coffee beans. Old coffee beans often lose their lustre and are unable to lend their flavoursome essence to added water. To ensure a certain quality and richness of taste, purchase fresh coffee beans on a regular basis.

The Perfect Temperature

If (and when) you boil water to add to your coffee, leave it to stand for approximately half a minute before adding it to the fresh grounds. In so doing, the water will reach an optimum temperature of 95 degrees Celsius. This thermal reading, according to The Speciality Coffee Association of Europe, is ideal for the brewing of the perfect, caffeinated drink.

The Wonders of Water

Research conducted by The Speciality Coffee Association of Europe suggests that the quality of the water one uses in the brewing of their drink has a direct impact on the final product. To create your ideal cup of coffee, ensure that the water you use is filtered and is of the highest possible quality. As well as considering the composition of the water you use, the Coffee Association also suggests that you take into account the liquid ratio between coffee and water. According to the Association, one litre of water should be used for every 50 grams of coffee. Such a ratio is believed to create the correct balance between the water and the coffee, creating a well-rounded, full-bodied taste.
