Brew Better Coffee at Home: 7 Tips You Need to Know

If you're tired of subpar coffee at home, it's time to up your game. Here are seven tips to help you brew better coffee and achieve that perfect cup every time.

1. Use a Scale

Establish a baseline for your coffee's accuracy by using a small kitchen scale. This will help you achieve consistent ratios and adjust for stronger or weaker coffee as desired.

2. Prioritize Cleanliness

Cleaning your coffee equipment after each use will prevent stale coffee smell and ensure your coffee tastes better than most cafes and restaurants.

3. Air Seal Your Beans

Keep oxygen away from your coffee to maintain its freshness. Air-sealed bags are the best way to do this, so take as much air as possible before sealing your bags.

4. Never Freeze Coffee

Freezing coffee beans dehydrates them, so avoid this at all costs. To keep your coffee fresh, air seal it, keep it away from light, and use it within a few weeks of roasting.

5. Don't Be Afraid to Experiment

There's no one "right" way to prepare coffee, so don't be afraid to experiment. Find your preferred brewing method and adjust variables like grind size and water temperature until you achieve your desired taste.

6. Record Your Findings 

Take notes of your experiments to remember ideal ratios for different coffees and variables used in each drink. This will help you perfect your brewing process over time.

7. Use Good Quality Beans

Good quality fresh coffee beans will always taste better than lower quality stale coffee. Invest in micro-lot coffee with a higher price tag to upgrade your coffee and achieve the flavor you desire.
