Every day, millions of homes all around the world brew coffee. Most coffee drinkers still make mistakes with their brew sets despite being constantly on the hunt for the ideal cup, even at home. These errors can significantly change how the coffee tastes. The majority of people don't even recognise that they do these errors. As a result, we decided to present some of the most typical errors. Avoiding these will put you on the road to a better cup of coffee every day. 

Storing coffee beans in the refrigerator

Coffee beans cannot be kept fresh by storing them in the refrigerator or freezer. The many pores in roasted beans allow them to absorb moisture and odours from other foods in the refrigerator. Beans should be kept at room temperature in an airtight container for the best storage results.

Regular cleaning is required for your coffee maker, just like for everything else in the kitchen. After each use, wash the carafe, filter basket, and lids in soapy water. Furthermore, conduct a brew cycle with equal parts water and vinegar at least once per month.

Using filter paper

Always wet the filter paper first and discard the water when using the Aeropress or Pourover method. By doing this, you can prevent your beverage from tasting like paper. Also, always moisten the ground coffee first and let it bloom (a bulge is formed when hot water touches the grounds, because of the escape of carbon dioxide and other gases). It is a sign that the coffee is old if there is no bloom at all or if air pockets form.

Although pre-ground coffee is quick and handy, coffee beans quickly lose their freshness after grinding. Buy the beans in smaller pack sizes so that they are consumed more quickly in order to maintain the quality of the beans.

Using boiling water to brew beans

Boiling water draws off the acidity and bitterness of the beans. A temperature of about 200 degrees Fahrenheit is good (93 C). Boiling the water and then waiting 45 seconds before using it is a simple way to get it to this temperature.

Pouring the coffee into a cold cup

It seems to sense that a hot liquid won't stay hot for very long if it is placed in a container with a lower temperature. Pre-warming the cup will increase your enjoyment of sipping. The water is already on its way to boiling, so the greatest part is that all you have to do is pour some of it into the cup, keep it there while the coffee is brewing, and then empty it before adding coffee.
