Anyone can make a great cup of coffee. The ingredients as well as the equipment to make it possible aren't that hard to find.

Here are a few tips that are good for people to remember when preparing coffee.

1. The first thing is to buy a good Coffee Maker. They are available in appliance stores, major food stores, even online.

Do some research first about the brands to get an idea of the features and benefits, and price of each one.

2. The most important ingredient in making good coffee is the coffee bean.

Top recommendation is to buy whole beans so they can be ground just prior to use.

 This may be tedious but there's a big difference you'll soon appreciate and like.

3. Water that comes out of the faucet or the plastic container has a certain taste. It's influenced by the water supplier's filtration and treatment process that makes it safe for people to drink.
Sometimes traces of the treatment chemicals, like chlorine, can be detected in the brewed coffee. Using distilled bottled water can solve that problem.

4. One way to make coffee taste better is to use stainless steel or gold mesh filters. This is a major improvement from the disposable paper ones that contain bleach, chlorine and dyes that may also affect the flavor. These are quite expensive, but you can still make good coffee using paper filters - buy the kind that are unbleached.

5. A rule of thumb for brewing is that there should be two tablespoons of coffee for every 6 ounces of water. The ground coffee  should be spread evenly in the coffee filter.

6. Coffee can be reheated if it gets cold. The best way to do this is by making sure it reaches 175 degrees. Of course, the need for reheating can often be avoided be pouring your hot freshly brewed coffee into a stainless steel Thermos bottle to keep it warm.

7. The coffee pot should be cleaned regularly. Using soap and water can do this but if there are still remnants after washing, use vinegar or baking soda for a complete cleaning (Instructions usually come with the User Manual).

It isn’t that hard to make a good cup of coffee. It just takes
some time to look for a coffee machine and the right beans
        that will provide the rich taste you enjoy.

  How the Big and Smaller Coffee Shops make their Coffee

The seemingly endless competition of big and small coffee shops and cafés all boils down to one thing, how they make their coffee. Because coffee is the primary product of a coffee shop, it's imperative that the coffee served consistently meets the high standards of the customers.
   Not only is the taste being judged, the presentation, the excitement and the experience that it gives and creates in the customer serves as the basis for how well their products will be received. Consider the decorating, layout and lighting of a Starbucks store, for example.

   Classic combinations like coffee and sugar and coffee and cream will never be out of the picture, but since people are looking for an adventure with every cup, many coffee shops experiment with different brews to create a sense of anticipation on the part of their customers.
