All Gourmet Coffee All The Time

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to enjoy gourmet coffee all the time? If you were to try and get your hands on gourmet coffee, it might cost you up to five dollars a cup, but with the right knowledge and equipment you can make it yourself at home. Coffee from Central America has a smooth acidity and easy drinking taste. This makes gourmet coffee a superb choice over regular coffees.

1. Get A Machine

The trick to brewing great coffee is a great coffee machine. There are still the old- fashioned drip machines, that are one of the easiest types to use for beginners and coffee experts alike. Of course, for the hard- core experts we have the old- fashioned presses and hand brew machines, that are back in favor. Then you have the newest technology, the pod coffee machines. These are like a European coffeehouse machine, infusing hot water through coffee pads. Also, then for espresso lovers, there are pressurized steam espresso makers.

2. Filters

Make sure, whatever machine you use, to also shop for the proper filter to put between it and your gourmet coffee. The best filters are gold, nylon, or some other permanent filter material. Thats because permanent filters allow most all of the flavor molecules from the coffee grinds to make it into the water.

3. Best Brew

A superior brew doesn't just taste better, it will also perform better. Having more time in your day to focus on other things is a great opportunity. Great coffee should not just taste great, it should also be highly caffinated to get you up in the morning. Of course, it should also be low in sugar - try using sugar replacements instead.

4. Coffee History

Coffee has its history back as far as the 9th century CE. It was said to originate from Ethiopia and spread to the rest of the world via Egypt and Europe. Over the ages, coffee has met both resistance and acceptance by many.

The word Coffee is derived from the Arabic word Kahweh, which originally meant wine or other intoxicating liquors. Partly due to the Islamic prohibition on drinking wine, preparing and drinking coffee became an important social ritual. In 1511 it was condemned at Mecca by a theological court. In Egypt coffeehouses and warehouses containing coffee berries were sacked.
