May 10, 2012 - PRLog -- Brewing methods vary on the choice of coffee and the coffee drinkers preference, whether you prefer a strong black coffee in the morning or a relaxing frothy afternoon cappuccino.  Flavours also impact on the taste and strength, with the brewing process and the type of coffee chosen making a difference.  

Once you have selected your coffee, and fresh roasted produces the finest coffee if you can get hold of it, then you need to grind it.  This is best done just before you brew and using a burr or mill grinder is preferable because all of the coffee is ground to a consistent size, if coffee tastes bitter, it could be ground too fine or if it is to coarse or under extracted then it will taste flat.

Whatever coffee making equipment you use, it is essential to make sure it is cleaned thoroughly after each use and check that there is no build up of coffee oil as this can lead to a bitter flavour to future cups of coffee.

Even the type of water can make a difference to a good cuppa; try using filtered or bottled water instead of tap to see if it tastes different.  Then you are ready to add the ground coffee (http://www.espressocapsuleclub.com/overview/), approximately one to two tables for six ounces of water, adjusted to suit taste.  Your brewer should maintain a water temperature between 195 – 205 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal extraction.

Brewing time varies depending on the type of coffee machine, a drip system usually takes around approximately 5 minutes, but if you are making your coffee using a plunger pot, the contact time should be 2-4 minutes.  Espresso (http://www.espressocapsuleclub.com/espresso/), as the name implies, means that the brew time is only 20-30 seconds.  Now you can sit back, take in the aroma and savour a freshly brewed, just to your taste, cup of coffee whatever time of day.

If all that just requires too much effort for a cup of coffee then how about letting someone else take the strain and buy individual foil wrapped coffee capsules (http://www.espressocapsuleclub.com/shop/) in a choice of flavours to suit you.  All capsules are hermetically sealed to ensure optimum freshness and a rich, smooth taste and work in all Nespresso machines including the leading brands of Magimix, Krups, De’Longhi and Capitani.
