How to make a perfect cup of coffee

Find Your Favorite

In order to brew the perfect coffee or iced coffee you need to first identify a personal favorite. You can do this by selecting something form a local shop. The first thing you need to keep in mind is the fact that the beans are freshly roasted and they would never be older than a week. This gives a punch to the drink and makes it fresh. Next, you need to taste different blends that are available and zero in on what you like. After that you need to get it from the cafe since most of them have it on sale. Get the beans but make sure that you roast them at home, which would certainly add the freshness and zing to it. In this way, you will be saving a lot on the mix since it would have been more expensive if you had gotten the pre roasted one.

Getting it Right

Now that you have found the right coffee beans you have arrived at the next big step, which is roasting them. It is essential that you get it right, since this would have a major impact on the flavor that you will be able to derive. For the most part, it would take 8 minutes but you need to keep a close watch on it. This is because if you roast them for too long then they would tend to become hard, which could in turn block the grinder. Also, make a note that if you want to get a lighter color, you need to roast them for a shorter span of time. Be careful while you engage in this process since the beans could pop out and hurt you. Additionally, you need to make sure that the beans don’t overcook. Next, you need to allow them to cool in a stainless steel bowl.

Get a Good Coffee Maker

The next thing that you need to do in order to brew the perfect pot of coffee or make the best iced coffee ever is a good  coffee maker or semi automatic espresso machine. Try to go in for a machine that looks like the ones at the cafes. This is because you will require a certain level of steam and pressure in order to extract the oil from the coffee beans in the right way. Apart from that the sales person would be able to help you in this regard and direct you towards getting the right one.
