A Couple of Coffee Tips for Best Flavor and Aroma

    A Couple of Coffee Tips for Fellow Drinkers to assure the best flavor and aromatic results.

   If you really love a perfect cup of coffee then now is a good time to learn how to get the best deals when buying your coffee, the best ways of grinding coffee beans, a wise way of storing the coffee and the proper way of preparing it to enjoy your coffee to the fullest.

   Many suggest buying fresh coffee from a local roaster. A good suggestion -  beginning with your local roaster gives you a couple of advantages.

   First one is the freshness. You are somewhat guaranteed that what you get is quite fresh since these local roasters roast the coffee in smaller batches which also results in a tastier and more aromatic product.

   When you buy coffee, make sure that you buy just enough for two weeks at a time. Buying a large stock is not good.

   At the end of the two weeks, the coffee begins to lose its rich flavor.

   It doesn't matter whether the beans were roasted locally. Storing them for weeks is never good.

   Also, on a related note, you should stay away from shops that display their coffee in bins. The air that enters the display bins helps quicken the phase of flavor loss.
   You will loose a lot of the coffee's flavor when you expose a freshly roasted batch of beans to the air.

   Most of the aroma and flavor come from the oils that come out after roasting the beans. The oil will evaporate when exposed to air and along with that the flavors and aroma of the coffee will be jeopardized. Aside from air, added factors that can reduce the quality of your coffee are heat, light and humidity.

   When storing coffee, use vacuum containers. Some advise storing your coffee beans inside the freezer. However, if you're going to store beans in a freezer don't make a habit of taking them out and returning them to your freezer. When the coffee beans warm up, the condensation can damage them causing loss in flavor and aroma.

   Ideally, never store ground coffee. What you should do is grind only the amount that you will need and store the beans. If you have to store ground coffee, place it inside airtight containers and at room temperature.

   If you're going to store coffee beans, make sure that you store only for a week, two weeks maximum. Storing beans any longer
than that can severely affect the overall taste and smell of the coffee.
