Do you knock your neighbor’s socks off with your drip coffee? Well, now you can, if you follow How to make the best coffee with these 7 Easy Steps To The Best Drip Coffee.
1. How to Make The Best Coffee — The Coffee Must Be Fresh.
Coffee has a shelf life of around 6 weeks. The coffee in the grocery store is on average 3 to 12 months old. What that means for you is, if you are drinking store-bought coffee you are enjoying the coffee equivalent of moldy stale bread. To avoid this and to enjoy the vast array of coffee’s flavors — only purchase coffee from a local independent roaster. Your coffee will be hours young not months old. That’s the first step in how to make the best coffee.
