That being said, lousy coffee maker can spoil the best coffee beans and even the person making the coffee can affect the quality of the coffee, but the most important variable remains to be the coffee beans.

So now that we know good coffee beans are the driver in brewing great coffee ('sight', I hate to admit in a site that promote coffee makers, but coffee beans still rules when it comes to great coffee), what makes coffee beans "best"?

To some, it has to be fairtrade and ethical products yet high in quality and taste, currently more coffee drinkers are looking for fair trade or rainforest alliance to ensure that no farmers or wild life are short changed in the process of getting their coffee.


This to many people are best coffee beans, it is so important that even big coffee chains like starbucks are offering fair trade coffee. That being said, this remains to be a perspective, an ideal that many people are pursuing.

Best coffee beans should be what you like to drink, if you asked me to break down to the simplest element, it should be about your liking more than anything else.

No matter what gurus say about how great some arabica beans can be, and how aromatic full city roast is, if you do not like coffee that is high in acidity, arabica with full city roast would not be your favourite coffee beans right?

And so, deciding your coffee beans type is the first step towards getting that perfect cuppa. This is followed by the roasting, how long, how dark to roast are all personal preferences.

Then, it would be the grind which of course, is directly related to the brew that you have in mind. Maybe you like very fine grind for intense espresso, or if French press is the way you like your coffee brewed then your coffee beans would be coarsely grind.

This is really scratching the surface on how to get the most out of the best coffee beans that you have chosen. There are simply too many variables to getting the perfect cuppa, that is the reason why baristas are a profession, isn't that so?

However, to further add on to the above pointers for you to get the perfect cuppa is the choice of your water. Soft water is essential to getting high quality coffee. And that might be the reason why more coffee makers are having brita filter to take out the chlorine and other undesirable elements that would bring about foreign taste in coffee.

The verdict is clear, to get the brew you want, you need the best coffee beans, the best of course being the your personal preference. But, this is not to say that coffee makers is secondary, regardless, if you like intense coffee, you still espresso maker rather than a French press, so choices of coffee machines is also key...
