Don’t get burned by a bad cup of coffee – 4 tips to a good cup of coffee
- Know what you are buying. This may sound overly simple, but you would be surprised to learn that many people will assume that just because they are holding a package of whole bean coffee in their hand with a name that invokes a rain forest, it must be a package of organic coffee beans. Just because there is not a picture of Juan Valdez’s smiling face on the package, it doesn’t mean it is organic coffee. Check the package for organic certification.
- Buy the right roast. Don’t make the mistake of buying an American roast organic coffee when you really like an intensely flavored coffee like a Vienna Roast organic coffee.
- How old are them thar beans? When it comes to buying coffee, you are in the minority. Most people plod blindly into the big box supermarket and buy the same 2 lb tin that their parents bought. Why take a chance when you could order online and know that your organic coffee beans will be roasted the day you order? You are only talking about a few cents more per cup, come on you’re worth it!
- When buying organic coffee beans, go for the authentic. Do you like a blend? That’s cool. Or maybe you like a single origin coffee, grown in one country but pooled from several sources. But have you tried a single estate coffee? Buying organic coffee beans that were grown on only one farm is no different than buying a fine wine from a renowned vineyard. You’ve got something special. You can’t get that at the big box supermarket or at most online stores for that matter.
Follow these tips and you can get a great cup of coffee. Make sure what you are buying is actually organic. Understand the differences in the roasts available. Be sure that it is fresh. Roasted the day you order it. And go for the authentic. Live a little.
