How to make a good filter coffee?

Filter coffee is a popular method of making coffee at home. It is easy to make and requires only a few basic ingredients: hot water, ground coffee beans, and a filter (paper or metal).

Small procedure for preparing a filter coffee

  1. Start by grinding your coffee beans. For filter coffee, you should use a medium or fine grind.
  2. Place the filter in your coffee maker. If you use a paper filter, be sure to rinse it before using it to eliminate any paper taste.
  3. Pour hot water (about 200 degrees Fahrenheit (ca. 93 °C)) into your coffee maker and rinse the filter to remove any paper taste.
  4. Pour the amount of ground coffee beans into the filter you want to use. For a standard filter coffee, you can use approximately one cup of beans for every four cups of water.
  5. Pour hot water over the coffee beans, making sure that all the beans are well soaked.
  6. Leave to infuse for about four minutes.
  7. Press the trigger on your coffee maker to strain the coffee into your cup or carafe.
  8. Enjoy your freshly brewed filter coffee!

Difference of Arabica and Robusta coffee beans

There are two main types of coffee beans: Arabica and Robusta. Arabica coffee is considered to be of superior quality, with a sweet and fruity taste. It grows at higher altitudes and requires careful care to produce good grains. Robusta coffee, on the other hand, has a more robust and full-bodied taste, and grows at lower altitudes. It is usually cheaper than Arabica and is often used in coffee blends.

What is the right method of preserving ground coffee?

To keep your ground coffee in the best possible way, it is important to store it in an airtight container and away from light and moisture. You can also put it in the freezer to keep it longer. However, it is critical to take it out of the freezer a few hours before using it so that it returns to room temperature. If you notice that your coffee tastes rancid or has lost flavor, it’s probably time to replace it. In general, ground coffee should be used within 3 to 5 days of grinding to get the best taste. If you can’t use all your ground coffee before that date, you can freeze it until you need it. By following these tips, you can enjoy a top quality filter coffee every day of the week.
