A guide to gourmet coffee

by: Dakota Caudilla
Even a Coffee Bean or San Francisco Coffee outlet frequenter wonít be able to master the art of appreciating true gourmet coffee unless they know the history and info about gourmet coffee. Oh, of course, you donít have to an EXPERT to enjoy and understand gourmet coffee, but knowing a little bit more than the grocery store owner who sells instant coffee would help you appreciate the taste, smell and absolute heaven that gourmet coffee fans know gourmet coffee is absolutely capable of.

Gourmet coffee is nothing like wine. With wine, the longer you leave (some wine, anyway), the better the taste, the higher the quality and the pricier it is. But with gourmet coffee, freshness says a lot. If possible, get coffee beans that have been roasted no more than 1 week before. And if youíre going to learn how to appreciate gourmet coffee, only buy 100% Arabica coffee.

Itís pretty hard to find freshly roasted coffee bean on the shelves of the local supermarket. Chances are, the coffee beans that youíre consuming today have been roasted at least 3 months back. One way to counter this problem is to buy the whole bean in batches and grind them with a home-coffee grinding machine as and when you need it. Itís really easy with the kind of machines they have today, so, if you want to learn how to appreciate gourmet coffee, grind it when you need it.

Once youíve purchased the gourmet coffee beans, donít just leave out there in room temperature. What you should do with gourmet coffee beans is to store them in an air-tight container in the fridge if youíre planning to use it soon. However, if youíre going to keep it, store the gourmet coffee beans in an air-tight container and keep it in the FREEZER.

You need the right grinder for the right brewer. Generally speaking, you can use about 2 tablespoons of gourmet coffee powder for 6 oz of water. Adjust the way you make your cup of gourmet coffee according to the way you like to drink your gourmet coffee.

With wine, the country where the grapes are grown makes a difference. With gourmet coffee, not only is the country of origin for the gourmet coffee bean makes a difference, the company that sells the gourmet coffee beans matters too. Buy only from reputable companies for gourmet coffee.

And one last thing about gourmet coffee is this Ė learn to enjoy it, appreciate the smell, love the taste, experiment with it and youíll soon see the wonder of gourmet coffee. If youíre hurrying off for work in the morning, forget about gourmet coffee! During the morning rush, just stick to instant coffee.
