HOW TO MAKE THE BEST COFFEEAlways buy coffee beans whole in preference to ground. Ground coffee will go stale quickly (within 30 minutes) due to the aromatics and oils that the grinding process releases. So, buy a good grinder and once you've ground your beans, use the ground coffee within 10 minutes.There's no such thing as the 'best' coffee bean, but there are beans more suitable for certain occasions. For example, a lighter coffee suits the mornings, while in the evenings something with more body's better.When making your coffee, it's important to balance the right water/coffee ratio. Brewed coffee needs typically 1 litre of water per 75g for a cafetière. Cafetières need more coarsely ground coffee, but this can be adjusted according to your taste. If the coffee's too weak, you'll need a finer grind. If it's too strong, grind it a little coarser. Cafetières are the easiest way to brew fresh coffee.Once your water's boiled, allow it to stand for a while, then warm the Cafetière with the hot water, not forgetting to throw it out just before you add the ground coffee. Add the correct amount of coffee to water ratio. To start, pour in a third of the water and leave it for 30 seconds. Give it a stir then add the remaining water, leaving it to brew for about 4 minutes. After the time's elapsed, press the plunger and pour into your cup. A good tip's to warm your cup using hot water before you serve the coffee.You can also brew coffee in a machine, or a coffee jug, using a filter and filter paper. Fold the filter paper into a cone shape and place it in the filter. It's best to wet the paper with hot water and let this drip through to warm the receptacle before you start brewing. Place your freshly ground coffee into the filter paper and using only a small amount of water, pour this onto the grains. Allow it to stand for about 30 seconds. Next, add the rest of the water, covering all the grains. You're aiming to get all the water through the filter in about 3 minutes. If it starts to go over this time, stop the process, otherwise the coffee will over-extract and won't taste good.Hopefully, if you follow these guidelines, you'll end up with the prefect cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home.
