Storing Your Coffee Well

For your morning coffee to taste amazing, it isn’t just enough to be delighted with your purchase of fresh coffee beans. You'll also need to follow some important yet simple steps for storage to maintain their flavour. First off, you are already ahead of the game because Browndog Coffee Beans already packaged in an airtight container, so you can just store them in your cabinet or on a shelf!  If for any readon your chosen container is clear, make sure to store it where there isn't any direct sunlight or heat from appliances which can cause premature ageing. Also, if you happen to pick up a Browndog Coffee Roasters refill compostable bag, we also suggest using a Browndog Jar to keep your beans fresh for as long as possible.


Measuring Your Coffee

The perfect cup of morning coffee is all about finding the right ratio of beans to water. Use too little ground coffee, and you'll have no flavour; use too much, and you'll get a cup full of mud. The secret to making a perfect pot of coffee is using the ideal amount of beans for your brewer and measuring how many cups you want to make. For example, most drip machines require one tablespoon of coffee per cup of water. So make use of a kitchen scale to get an accurate measurement if needed so that every cup satisfies your taste buds. 

Using Clean Water

Although coffee is only water and beans, the quality of those two ingredients heavily determines the outcome of your cup. By selecting the best coffee beans and grinding them perfectly, you lay a strong foundation for your coffee. The next step, then, is to focus on using quality water. The best type of water to use when making coffee or tea is clean and cold. This can be distilled bottled water or filtered tap water, but it will produce a tastier cup of coffee than using tap water straight from the source.

Exploring Sweeteners ( Not really a fan, but we don't judge people )

You can jazz up any cup of coffee with a range of sweeteners and creamers. I'm not against that but  a good cup of coffee shouldn't need additives, but it's your call! You can try mixing in a small slab of butter instead of milk or cream. Cinnamon makes an excellent sugar substitute, and you can easily make flavored simple syrups at home.
