So many people can’t imagine their lives without coffee, the gorgeous drink which helps us being alive on the working days 🙂 Today our Mashbox team wants to share with you six rules of a good coffee.
1.Сhoose only fresh coffee.
The best way to consume it within three weeks after the roast.
2. Buy coffee in beans.
Aromatic and tasteful components of coffee are enclosed in the essential oils, and after beans grinding these oils are actively contacting with air, therefore they oxidize and the taste of coffee becomes poor. That’s why it is said that milled coffee lives one hour.
3. Storage coffee in the correct way.
As soon as coffee should be fresh, better to buy coffee for 1-2 weeks and not huge amounts for ages. If you already have more coffee, put it in the freezer but for 2 months maximum. Don’t forget that air, light, heat and humidity are the worst enemies of coffee.
4. Grind coffee correctly.
The best way is to grind it before consumption.
5. Don’t forget about the quality of water.
Basically, coffee is 98,75% water. Use clean drink water with low mineralization in order to get the full taste.
6. Brew coffee according to the instructions.
It doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t make experiments, but they will work out better after you know the basic correct way.
