Coffee has that refreshing taste that many people love. It can give you that feeling in the morning that you're ready to go another day. Full of energy and ready to go, you're ready to conquer the world! Okay, maybe not, but that coffee sure does taste good. Keep reading to find out more information concerning your choices with coffee.

 

Do you plan to serve coffee to visitors? Self decorating lattes are fairly easy to do. Impress and wow your guests by making flower shapes in their latte. Try variations of melted chocolate with various forms of milk or other flavors for this task.

 

Do not keep your coffee in the refrigerator unless it is in a container that is absolutely airtight. This is important because moisture can cause coffee to become moldy. It is best to keep your coffee in the cabinet where it will stay warm, dry and at its best quality.

 

If you have a hard time finding fresh, roasted beans in your area, then consider roasting fresh beans yourself. The easiest and most fool-proof method is to place green coffee beans on a baking tray and roast them in the oven. Preheat the oven at the highest temperature and roast the beans until you hear them start to crack.

 

One way to keep coffee fresh is by buying whole bean coffee and only grinding as much as you plan on drinking at the time. Most coffee loses its flavor because people make more than they plan on drinking. Light, humidity, air, and oxygen can quickly decrease the flavor and aroma of your coffee by damaging its oils.

 

Avoid using pre-flavored and packaged coffee beans. These beans are sprayed with extra oils that are very difficult to clean out of grinders and coffee machines. That oil stays in the machines and mixes with later batches causing strange-tasting coffee. They also tend to make the coffee smell better than it tastes.

 

Clean your coffee grinder regularly. Coffee grinds go stale quickly. As a result, it is necessary to clean your grinder often. If the grinder is not cleaned on a regular basis, old stale grinds will be mixed with your freshly ground coffee. It is best to clean the grinder thoroughly every few days.

 

Even if you do not have a coffee grinder at home, you can purchase whole beans and grind them at the supermarket. Most stores that sell whole bean coffee also have a machine that you can use to grind your coffee as you purchase it. This is a great way to choose the grind you prefer.

 

For the best tasting coffee, use fresh beans that are between three days old and ten days old. Younger beans have not had sufficient time to mature and the taste can reflect this. Older beans are already going stale and losing the maximum flavor they had during their peak time.

 

If you choose to use a drip machine, then consider using water that has not been heated first. Never use warm or hot water in drip style coffee pots. The brewer will heat the water for you during the brewing process. Starting with water that is too hot can lead to a burned roast taste. This leads to poor tasting coffee and can be a safety issue as well.

 

Coffee beans are actually a fruit of the coffea plant, a small evergreen bush. The berries are picked by hand, sorted and the outer cover is removed. Then the beans are washed and dried, either on drying tables or by pumping heated air through a container they are placed in.

 

Take care in selecting your next coffee maker. Remember that glass carafes do not keep coffee fresh for long and that French presses tend to produce the strongest brews. For households where only one person drinks coffee, or if it is only consumed infrequently, a single-cup brewer may be ideal.

 

Don't pour extra coffee down the drain; freeze it into cubes instead. These cubes can be a great way to create fabulous and strong iced coffee. Additionally, they can be used to cool down coffee which is much too hot to immediately consume.

 

If you want to take your cup of coffee with you, use an insulated mug to keep it hot. There are many types available, but usually the aluminum insulated ones work best. If you want to take your coffee along as you drive, make sure to get a mug that fits into the cup holder in your car.

 

You can use old coffee grinds to stave off ants around your homes. Yes, it's just one of the many benefits of coffee. Ants hate the smell of coffee, and so it acts as a repellant. Coffee grinds also make great compost. If you can save them for this purpose, it will benefit you.

 

Is it too hot for a cup of coffee? You should try making some ice-cold coffee. Brew your coffee and place it in the fridge until it cools or place coffee grounds in a filter, close the filter with a string and place it in a glass of cold water.

 

Follow your favorite coffee shops on social networks. Doing so can provide you with a heads-up with regard to promotions, special deals and new flavors. You might find that they have discounts or coupons, too, only for their followers.

 

There are many different ways that you can make drinks with coffee, outside of the standard morning cup. Pouring coffee into a mug and adding Irish Cream and Grand Mariner can really make for a nice warm drink on a cold day. Add whipped cream to the top to give it that extra fun kick.

 

What a wonderful way to start your day. That's been decided, so have you decided to do anything differently for your next cup of joe? Your options are pretty much limitless, so you might as well have some fun with it. Remember the advice you've read here as you get started tomorrow morning.
