With the exception of those who prefer their coffee ice-cold, coffee is designed to be consumed hot. In this article, we'll look into several excellent methods for keeping your coffee hot for longer periods of time.
The trick to keeping your French Press coffee hot is to not leave it in the coffee maker for too long after it has been brewed. Excessive time in the brewer results in harsh flavors and over-extraction. Intense bitter properties tend to dominate the taste notes of the ground coffee and ruin your perfect cup.
So, how should you store your freshly brewed French press coffee?
It is not a good idea to reheat boiled coffee. Heat affects the flavor profile of coffee by eliminating nutrients and fats.
Extraction takes place during the brewing process. Reheating coffee is essentially a second extraction that removes additional nutrients and oils. This makes coffee sour or bitter.
Brew only enough coffee for your requirements to avoid having to reheat it and getting a poor taste. Use a metal French press if you want to brew more than one cup. Metal French Press coffee makers, on the other hand, necessitate preheating water.
