Best Italian Brands of Coffee

Steps to brewing great coffee

  1. Use good quality coffee, freshly roasted and freshly ground
  2. Use fresh, clean, cold water. Filtered or bottled water works well, but avoid distilled or softened water.
  3. The grind chosen must be of the correct fineness for the chosen brewing method.
  4. The pot must be cleaned and warm.
  5. Make only enough coffee for your immediate needs. The coffee will deteriorate if you keep it too long. Avoid reheating coffee, it just doesn't taste the same.
  6. Avoid boiling brewed coffee - it is a sure way to spoil the coffee.
  7. Use approximately 70 grams of coffee per litre of water.

Regarding Water

 

When you make coffee, you should only use water that tastes good when you drink it straight up. If the water doesn't taste good to drink, don't even attempt to make coffee with it. Remember, the best cups of coffee are made with quality water - either filtered tap water or bottled water.

  3. Maria, Maria:

    You didn't mention anything about adding sugar. I cannot have coffee without sugar. We, in India are so used to our sweet coffee.

    Joy always,
    Susan
