What could be better than the aroma of freshly brewed coffee? Nevertheless, just as there are different types of coffee beans, there are several methods of preparation too. The delicious flavor of a good coffee is indisputable, but each preparation will highlight specific properties of the bean and this makes all the difference in the result of the drink. Therefore, the choice of grain, the method of preparation and the way in which you will execute it are fundamental. Besides different species of grains, ground or powder, the methods of preparation also differ in the equipment used, in the material and in the speed of extraction. All this will influence the aroma and flavor, and can harm them if the coffee is not of high quality and the preparation is not adequate. Making coffee with Ninja Coffee Bar CF091 is even a very easy task, but to prepare a delicious coffee, it is necessary to have the knowledge of some basic secrets.
Choose a quality product
It does not matter if the coffee is ground or beans, but quality is essential, preferably 100% Arabica coffee or Robusta. If you already have a coffee grinder at home, then you can opt for freshly ground coffee, just before brewing and just the right amount. Coffee beans usually have an intense flavor and aroma. If you choose powdered coffee, it must be of high quality too. The type of coffee or blend will depend on your taste preference.
Store it properly
After opening the coffee package, it needs to be properly preserved so as not to lose its properties and oxidize in contact with light. Therefore, store it in well-sealed containers, made of dark metal or glass, and store it in the refrigerator, as the low temperature will help to preserve its properties. Also, do not take too long to consume, because once opened it should only last for 15 days.
Choose a good colander
The type of strainer is a matter of preference, but it is decisive depending on the preparation chosen. If you have an espresso machine at home, you will not need a percolator. There are those who love coffee pass through a cloth strainer, as the cotton fabric does not contain pigments. However, it also needs to go through cleaning and storage processes. A good filter paper is also made up of 100% cellulosic fibers.
Use filtered water ONLY
In order not to harm the taste of your coffee, do not use tap water, only filtered or mineral water, as tap water can contain residues, impurities and other substances for its treatment that modify the taste.
Do not add sugar to the water or powder
There are those who have the habit of adding extra sweetener in the coffee to speed up the preparation. Do not do it. The sweetener and sugar remove the entire flavor from the drink. The sugars during preparation can change the boiling point of the water and make the coffee turn into a kind of syrup.
Pay attention to proportion and grind
The proportion between powder and water is fundamental in any preparation, as well as the grinding of the grain, if that is your choice. You should use 5 to 6 tablespoons of powder for every liter of water. The idea is to maintain the balance, depending on your preference for a stronger or weaker coffee.
Do not let the water boil
To make a perfect coffee, the idea is to let the water boil, but keep it at a temperature of no more than 90 °C. You can use a thermometer, or observe the boiling point, which forms small bubbles before raising the boil. When we let the water boil, this high temperature changes the acidity of the coffee powder, impairing its final flavor.
