You are not alone in wanting better office coffee. Worldwide, coffee lovers are seeking to solve the work-coffee dilemma.
The coffee in the office kitchen or break room is extremely bad. Aside from the fact that you have no idea how long it has been sitting in the pot, it is probably bitter due to coffee grounds or other strange junk.
When everyone makes coffee, no one is accountable for the coffee maker, which means that your office coffee machine may occasionally become infested with mold, and will undoubtedly alter the flavor of your brew. Therefore, if your office coffee machine consistently produces bad-tasting coffee, even after you prepare a fresh pot.
However, by following a few simple steps, you can make better office coffee and keep your coworkers and yourself from ever again consuming sludge.
Vinegar can be used to clean your office coffee maker even if it has been used to create a fresh batch of coffee. Fill the water reservoir halfway with equal parts water and white vinegar, and let the solution "brew" for a few minutes.
If you despise office coffee, bring your own brewing device. A French press is the most convenient and space-saving way to make high-quality coffee at your desk. You'll have complete control over the coffee's strength and bean quality.
There are many pourover brewers that can fit in a desk drawer, such as the Aeropress or V60. To make your own coffee at your workplace, simply add hot water and your favorite espresso powder. To make things even better, add a quality thermos to the mix. If it has vinyl, stripes, and a built-in cup.
The office coffee is a hot topic, and everyone has an opinion about it. The perfect cup is a matter of taste and what you choose to put in it.
In order to make the ideal cup of office coffee, work is required. But it's well worth it. You'll be able to enjoy the ideal cup of coffee every day of the week!
