It's possible to brew cafe quality coffee in your own kitchen. Brewing a better cup of coffee isn't difficult.
There's no better cup of coffee, just the simplest version of what you preferred. Some love their coffee rich, dark and thick enough or does one prefer something brighter, more of a medium roast that does not overwhelm you with bitterness?
Perhaps a light-weight coffee with some cream and sugar is your preference.
With that preference, you'll start to enhance it until you hit on a home-brewed cup of coffee to your liking. I still spend my days at the cafe, working and enjoying coffee I didn't make. I can still enjoy an excellent cup of home-brewed coffee.
Similarly with food preparation, you will use better quality ingredients and it’s true of coffee too.
Most ready-ground coffee exceeds their optimum shelf life of one week. Using good quality whole- beans with a good grinder, grinding yourself just before brewing are essential.
Now having a decently economical grinder to freshly grind your coffee, depending on your taste preference which beans do you have to buy?
For lighter, brighter coffee, a light-weight or medium roast. For darker and richer coffee, a dark roast.
Whole-bean coffee with proper storage will last up to 2 months without any difference between the fresh new beans.
You have a decently good grinder and good beans, how to prepare and produce a reliably good cup of coffee whenever you brew?
Plenty of experiments till you are satisfied with the brew that you prefer, and keep notes of your recipes for future reference.
