  1. Fresh beans - Using fresh, quality coffee beans is always the first step to brewing good coffee. The natural flavors in coffee are always best with a fresh bag of beans.

  2. Filtered water - The water you're using to brew your coffee can greatly affect the flavor and texture of your coffee. You'll want to use purified water that has a neutral PH. Stay away from distilled and reverse osmosis water, while it will prevent buildup in your machine, they lack the necessary mineral content to extract the coffee.

  3. Quality grinder - A big part of brewing coffee is the grind size. It's best to use a burr grinder because it breaks down the beans by rotating them against a rough surface versus a regular blade grinder that hacks your beans into pieces. Using a burr grinder ensures a consistent grind size that will evenly extract your coffee.

  4. Hone your craft - Whether you're using an espresso machine, french press, pour over, or something else, hone your craft! Learn how to use your brewer. How long do you brew the coffee? What grind size should you use? Is your espresso machine calibrated? These are all details that matter.

  5. Add a little something extra - While we are a big supporter of drinking black coffee and enjoying the natural flavor profile of the beans, it never hurts to add a little something more. Try honey, cinnamon, chai spices, maple syrup, and more. There are so many different ways to delight in your coffee. Make it yours.
