An Idea for Coffee Lovers
Are you a coffee lover? I certainly am, and I love to explore every new flavor I come across. There are many people today who love to run out to the latest trendy coffee house to find the latest brews at outrageous prices. I prefer to search around and find a high quality whole bean coffee.
I’ve spent enough time hunting down uncommon coffees, that the sellers I deal with can usually provide me with some solid details about the origins of the beans I’m buying. This doesn’t mean much to some people, but for serious coffee enthusiasts, noting even the most subtle differences in flavor can be a fun and enjoyable experience.
I’ve found that I can try just about any flavor I like without spending very much money. Coffee drinking is still a relatively inexpensive diversion, even if you like to go with the premium products. Of course, the savings goes right out the window if you choose to go to expensive coffee outlets like Starbucks, where most of your money is going toward paying for the brand, not necessarily the coffee itself.
If you are a serious coffee fan, consider experimenting with the various ways of preparing coffee. Most people today have come to rely on automatic drip coffee makers. While these are good machines for getting your coffee ready to drink quickly, they can sometimes be lacking in flavor because the hot water passes over the finely ground beans so quickly.
I recommend trying some other, slower brewing methods to give yourself a true appreciation for the subtle differences among coffee varieties. I found a nice little video describing how to make coffee with a French press. This is a method that most people have never tried, but it is certainly worth trying if you love experiencing the many levels of flavor available in premium coffee.
