As brewed coffee is made up of around 98% water, the quality of water you use is important. Using freshly drawn, filtered cold water is one of the secrets of making a great cup of coffee.
Always use fresh coffee; coffee is at its best within two weeks of opening.
Use the right amount of coffee; normally one rounded dessert spoon per cup but it is a matter of taste.
Try experimenting to find which coffee and roast level/strength is right for you?
NEVER re-heat coffee or leave it too long on the heated plate of the coffee machine
Enjoy the smell of the coffee before you drink it. The nose is far better than the mouth to get the real appreciation of the fresh brewed coffee’s many nuances.
Drink coffee within 15 minutes of making to enjoy the full aroma and flavour
Make sure your coffee-making equipment is kept scrupulously clean.
Ground Rules: Do make sure you use the correct grind of coffee for your chosen preparation method.
Fine grind: for Espresso machines and stove-top pots.
Medium grind or Omnigrind (coffee suitable for all coffee makers): for cafetieres, percolators and filter machines.
