Mmm coffee. I start my day with a triple Americano that I make at home (Nespresso FTW), but weekends I often make a pot of coffee. Maybe a nice French press pot or the classic auto-drip. There is one thing for sure, you can’t make a good pot of coffee if the coffee you buy is crap.
We all have our favorite coffees we buy as a treat to ourselves, how about finding and trying some new ones for a few months! How about a sample of four coffees a month for you to try? I’m craving another mug myself just thinking about this deal—Sample Delicious Coffee With MistoBox: Get 4 Micro-Roasted & Fresh Whole Bean Coffee Samples Delivered to Your Doorstep Every Month for 4 Months
The deal is pretty sweet, I think (and if I were in the States I’d be getting it). Once a month you get 4 samples of coffee. Try them all and then you can order a full pound of the one(s) you like…with free shipping! The deal we have is to try this for four months for $30 (50% off). Not too expensive and a nice treat for yourself.
Since we’re talking coffee, I have a tip for you that I got from my friend Degan Walters. Actually it’s a post her husband wrote, but I found it through her.
Regardless. Matt’s tips on brewing better coffee at home are just bang on. The best one, besides using a French press for more flavorful coffee, is to let the water cool down to 200°F from the boil at 212°F. Seems like a really nit-picky thing, but one morning when I had the time I tried it and it made a huge difference in the brew! Smoother, no harsh bitter tastes.
Of course I was using decent coffee for that pot.
Folks, life is too short to drink crappy coffee, invest in good coffee and mornings will be better.
