Brewing the Perfect Cup of Coffee: Part 2

Brewing the Perfect Cup of Coffee: Part 2

Enjoying a cup of coffee does not have to be a chore. Rather than mindlessly going through the motions of getting ready in the morning, take a few minutes to really enjoy your cup of coffee. Starting the day off with a few mindful minutes to relax will improve your entire day. Although LaVie Coffee has the finest quality coffee beans available to make you a rich cup of coffee, your brewing method will also have a say in the taste of your coffee. Each brewing method has its pros and cons to consider.


The French Press

Although the French Press is not a method popular in office settings, it is an excellent choice for single or double cups of coffee. The French Press is a glass cylinder where you pour in both hot water and your ground beans. LaVie Coffee has beans ground specifically for a French Press to extract the maximum number of oils out of the beans. After the beans steep in hot water for several minutes, a plunger is used to separate the beans from the hot water. This method brings out the full oils and flavors in the coffee, but it can only be used to make one or two cups of coffee at a time.


Drip Coffee

Most consumers are familiar with drip coffee because it is the most popular coffee brewing method. With this being such a popular brewing method, thousands of drip coffee machines are on the market. However, there is a vast difference in taste between a drip coffee machine that costs $10 and one that costs $300. For a better-tasting cup of coffee, choose a more expensive drip coffee machine. These machines are less likely to burn or over-extract your coffee beans.


Pour-Over Method

Like the French Press, this is also a method that is best enjoyed by a single person or two. The pour-over process uses a paper filter and excellent coffee beans. The coffee beans are placed into the filter, and hot water is poured over the beans until the cup is full. This is a slow method for preparing a single cup of coffee and cannot be used by many people. However, this method also allows for maximum extraction of flavors from the beans, and it is not overly expensive.
