Do you love the taste of fresh ground coffee? I used to love going to cafes because their coffee tasted better than when I would try to make my own at home. Yet their beverages more expensive than wholesale flavored coffee my coworkers brewed at home and it wasn’t always consistent in the shops either. Finally I figured out the key to a consistently fresh ground coffee taste: grinding whole coffee beans myself. This article will tell you how.
Clean your coffee machine. Pour a cup of vinegar into the pot and then fill the rest with water. Turn the coffee maker on and let it brew (with no beans in it yet, of course). Once you’ve brewed this solution pour it out and brew a pot of water through twice in order to rinse the vinegar out. It’s important to start with a clean percolator in order to get the best flavor from your fresh ground coffee.
Grind the whole coffee beans. I got a cheap coffee grinder
Dump the fresh ground coffee into your coffee machine after you put in a filter if your machine requires one. My home coffee machine actually has a reusable wire filter that I simply empty and rinse out. This saves me money on filters and it's better for the environment.
Serve your fresh ground coffee however you prefer, with milk, creamer, sugar, low calorie sweetener, flavored powders, or syrups. A few household ingredients to try in your drink are chicory, cinnamon, a drop of vanilla extract, or a drop of almond extract. And that’s all there is to using whole coffee beans to make great fresh ground coffee! Enjoy!
