If you are a heavy coffee drinker make lunch you last cup. Drinking caffeine in the afternoon and evening can seriously effect your ability to sleep soundly. As long as you don't load your coffee up with too many calories it is just fine to have several cups during the morning hours.

 

French presses are popular for coffee making because the resulting coffee is highly flavored. Drip-style coffee makers have paper filters that can absorb all the flavor. French presses brew coffee by forcing beans downward, essentially "pressing" the flavor from the beans. This increases the amount of flavorful oils in your container.

 

Trying drinking your coffee while it is at the hottest temperature possible. This is when coffee is at its best. If you allow coffee to cool and then you reheat it, you will not get the same flavor from it that you would from drinking it while it was still fresh.

 

If you refrigerate your coffee, be sure the container is airtight. If the container the coffee is kept in is not sufficiently air tight, odors can be absorbed by the coffee. If stored incorrectly, coffee can accumulate moisture.

 

Buy smaller cans of coffee. If you buy coffee in a can, only buy what you will consume in a couple of weeks. It will cost more money than buying a large can and storing it for a while. What you save in money by buying a larger can, you end up sacrificing in taste.

 

While your coffee is brewing, try soaking the coffee mugs in hot water. A cold mug will cool off your drink before you can even get it to your lips! When the coffee is ready, simply dry off the mugs and serve. This trick will keep it hot much longer.

 

Never put coffee in a container by the stove. If you coffee is stored near a heat source, it can lose its flavor. Any counter tops or cupboards near the oven should be avoided.

 

When measuring water and coffee grounds, first choose the number of cups you wish to make. A conventional cup for coffee contains six ounces, and a one-cup measure holds eight. The best proportion is six ounces of clean water to two tablespoons ground coffee. Your brew will be watered down if you use a measuring cup.
