What Makes a GOOD Cup of Coffee

Are you a coffee lover?  Regardless of it being brewed, steamed, boiled or just the normal coffee you have by the roadside mamak stall, coffee is known to be addictive. In Malaysia, teh tarik is ALSO addictive. But so is nasi lemak, roti canai and a whole lot more.

So here are some sites that describe the goodness of coffee & how to ensure you get a good cuppa.

1. GOOD COFFEE

For the better part of 16 years, I’ve been in almost daily pursuit of the perfect cup of coffee, and the methods for achieving it consistently. It’s a tricky business, but I’ve learned to hit far more often than I miss. And even when I miss, the result is now usually at least as good as what a typical coffee shop serves.

This may sound obsessive. It is — good art always is. And the making of good coffee is a complex art. There is no one simple secret. It takes time, care, and a little hard work.

But if you’re willing to do what it takes, the following tips should dramatically improve the flavor of your drip-brewed coffee at home. The principles should generally apply to other brewing methods, too. Here they are in order of importance, in my experience:

  1. Clean the brewer
  2. Buy fresh coffee
  3. Keep it fresh
  4. Use fresh, clean water
  5. Use the best ratio of grounds to water
  6. Buy whole beans
  7. Shy away from the darkest roasts (French & Italian, for example)
  8. Stir the pot
  9. Drink it straight
