More coffee making tips

May 13, 2012 0 By EngineerMommy

I’ve talked about making coffee at home before, and although I covered many of the basics, there are a few more points I’d like to share with you all.

  • Coffee will taste only as good as the water used to make it. Start out with filtered water whenever possible.
  • Use the right proportions. A general guideline is 2 tbsp per 6 oz water. Use more if you like it strong; use less if you like it light.
  • Store coffee grounds in an airtight container.
  • Once ground, use coffee immediately.
