To get the best flavored coffee, you need to use filtered or distilled water. Be sure that you use the right amount of water when filling up your coffee machine. If you happen to put too much water in, just increase the amount of coffee.
For drip coffee use cold water only. Warm water is not recommended for this type of brewer and will likely cause lousy-tasting coffee.
When storing coffee beans or grounds it is best to store them in the freezer and use only airtight containers. If your container is not air tight and the coffee spills, it will soak up the odors from your fridge. The wrong container can also add moisture to your coffee.
If you are like me some times its more about what you put in the coffee rather than the coffee itself. If you appreciate some selection with your coffee, like I do, the easiest way to do this would be to add creamers, syrups or even dark chocolate to your already made cup of coffee. I do keto/low-carb so I use swerve, heavy whipping cream and syrup. I love the sugar free skinny girl syrups. They have so many to choose from. I have tried peanut butter cup, sugar cookie, caramel pecan, glazed donut, mocha, pumpkin spice, and s’mores, I tend to like the lighter syrups over the darker syrups. Right now my favorites are mint chocolate chip and pecan caramel. Yummmooo!!!!
What coffee machine should I use? That’s a difficult question to answer because there are so many options available. I received the Keurig 2.0 coffee maker as a Christmas present years ago and I still absolutely love it and would recommend it to anyone. Which coffee machine do your prefer? Please let me know in the comments section below.
You may have already known some or all of this, but if not I hope I was able to give you some tips and tricks that you can implement to your daily coffee routine that will allow you to enjoy your best cup of coffee.
