Here are some simple coffee brewing tips:
Whether you use a drip coffee maker or a French press, extracting the best flavor from your coffee beans requires following a few general rules:
1) Use fresh, roasted coffee beans (no older than two weeks);
2) Coffee should be brewed using filtered water for 4-5 minutes between 195-205 degrees Farenheit (just under the boiling point);
3) You will have to adjust the amount of ground coffee to use (for your own taste preferences), however a convenient starting place is to use 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per 6 ounces of water;
4) Filtered water is recommended as tap water may impart off flavors to the coffee. Do not use distilled water as some minerals are essential to coffee flavor;
3) Pour and enjoy...
