A quick whif and you know that there is something afoot with this cup of black gold. Oh well, you think, Maybe it's just me. I haven't had time to wipe the sleep from my eyes. My nose is probably playing tricks on me too. So rather than smelling it, the cup, again you slurp a gulp for ole glory and shazaaamm. What the heck was that. Nose hairs start to curl. Eye balls begin to recede into their sockets. Holy moly you must have stepped on something that is now in your mouth.
If you have ever had an experience like this, then you know what I'm talking about. It is the 2000's and by now everyone should know how to make a great cup of coffee. But alas, you happen to stop in the one place on the planet where this information has not been shared.
So how do you make the perfect cup of coffee? What makes a cup of joe ultimate? Is it the water? Is it the cup? Can I take the beans that I bought at the local coffee shop and reproduce that exquisite balance that they produce for me?
Well I'm gonna try and answer those questions for you right now. After this short blog you'll be able to not only choose the right kind of beans for a home drip but you'll be able to reproduce coffee shop quality drink at home.
Here's what you're gonna need to start:
1. An electric pot or stovetop pot to heat your water
2. Filtered or bottled water
3. Excellent fresh roasted beans
