Now, let’s stay objective.
Allow me to “precisely” inform you about the official ” coffee brewing methods” and what you get to know here, is not biased at all.
Coffee is coffee; coffee is for caffeine kicks.
Brewing coffee simply means boiling the coffee in water.
The caffeine amount in brewed-coffee is always around 80-135 mg. The caffeine amount shifts from 80 mg to 135 and so does the taste shift from milder to stronger depending on the time you spend brewing the coffee beans.
The longer you brew the coffee beans in water, the stronger it gets with its caffeine amplified.
There is no rocket-science in it!
With this being said, for your needed caffeine-fix, – feel free to brew and boil your coffee beans in water by any methods you can imagine.
First thing’s- first.
Here, our issue is your regular morning coffees. That means coffee brewing method needs to be as less complicated as possible. Time is also a huge factor.
Now at a certain cold morning to get your fast caffeine kick would you prefer to first grind the coffee beans then roast and then brew and then… God Forbids! Stay stoned in the forever brewing methods?
SO, if you are not on a spree of starting a small e-retail coffee business, your best bet will be to follow the Pour-over Coffee brewing method when at home.
When at home brewing the cup of coffee can in no way be complex neither does your coffee beans need to go through expensive brewing machines.
At home, keep things simple and stick to our COFFEE Cheat Sheet –
When a good taste and flavor intact cup of coffee is needed at home you should ASAP stop yourself falling in the ‘complex barista brewing method’ loopholes.
A Perfect Cup of Coffee Calls For –
With the ‘first three’ already covered at the beginning, let’s now come to the final point of coffee: water requirements for YOUR 1 cup of officially perfect coffee.
Too much coffee; it’ll taste bitter.
Too much water; it’ll taste weaker.
So, how do you fix your bitter-tasting/weak sloppy cup of coffee?
It’s all about the coffee to water ratio when making the good cup of coffee.
To be precise, for 1 cup of coffee, aim for 1 tablespoon of ground coffee with 6 Ounces of water.
Leave the task of back-calculations to us while you simply, multiply your cups of coffee needed with 2 tablespoons of coffee. Thus you will need 8×2=16 tablespoons of coffee for 8 cups.
Mastering these points is the most hassle-free sure-fire way to make a perfect cup of coffee at home. Of course things are a bit different if you are going to open an e-retail coffee shop.
Wait for it!

Espresso coffee is the ultimate piece of art for any coffee lover. Sadly, most of the espresso machines are expensive.
Thanks to the great human brains! French press coffee maker can brew the coffee as perfectly as any espresso machine.
As an alternative of the espresso coffee machine, French Press maker has gained a plenty of popularity all around the world. Convenience in using and the inexpensiveness of the machine are the catalysts for such boosted popularity.
The French Press Maker is a cylinder-shaped flask with a pressuring handle and valve. The whole setup is sufficient for brewing a cup of roasted coffee powder.
All it requires is adding hot water and putting pressure on the handle. Collect the brewed coffee extract from the flask and prepare your favorite cup of cappuccino or latte.
Before you start using the machine, this article will give you all the essential information. Let’s begin!
The idea of creating an inexpensive brewing machine was patented in the late ‘20s. One of the French inventors played the role of a pioneer in this journey.
Meanwhile, the Moka Pot machine was ruling in the market. Some people found this as the best way for brewing coffee beans.
But putting the pot on a stove seemed hazardous for most of the coffee lovers.
Faliero Bondanini was the first manufacturer who brought the modern version of French Press Coffee Maker in the year 1958. Yes!
It took almost 30 years for developing the tool for coffee lovers. Because of the place of origin, the coffee maker is known as the French Press.
Anyone can make espresso coffee with an espresso machine, right? In my experience, not everyone can afford an espresso machine. You will need money and passion at the same time. This s why the espresso machines got larger and been placed in coffee shops.
On the other hand, people who like to make espresso machine start buying the Moka pot and AeroPress. In the meantime, the French Press Coffee Maker started entering the market.
It is easier and far simpler in the mechanism. You don’t have to heat the machine like a Moka pot. Also, the French Press Coffee Maker brews 90% of the coffee powder which is incredible.
Making espresso requires hot water and pressure at the same time. If you have a French Press Coffee Maker, the whole process takes less than 5 minutes. Here is the full guideline to use the espresso maker.
At first, you need roasted coffee beans. You will find in the market. The package may say properly roasted. But you have to rely on your eyes. Find the dark and strong coffee beans.
A simple coffee grinder is enough for this process. The question is, “how much should you grind?” For the record, the finer the powder gets, the easier the brewing will be. Got it? Keeping the powder to an average density provides the perfect taste.
Put the roasted beans in the grinder and grind it for a while.
The roasted beans may come with dirt and other unnecessary particles. You will find a lot of filtering pot in the market. They are cheap and have a plenty of usefulness. Bring one for your ground coffee beans. Remove the bigger particles using the filtering pot. Pour only the fine powder in a cup.
To brew the coffee powder, you must heat a cup of water. Get water and heat normally. Keep the temperature at around 100 degree Celsius. This adds the best brewing effect to the extract.
If you haven’t use the coffee maker previously, gently open the lid and clean it. The handlebar is generally metal-made. Use a clean rag to wash it. You will find a valve inside the flask. A little rinsing will be enough for cleaning the pressure valve. Once you have cleaned every part, let it dry for a while.
Now, pour some coffee inside the cylinder. Depending on the size of your coffee maker, the measurement may vary. Generally, a spoonful coffee is the most ideal measurement for brewing purpose. Add half a cup of hot water. Hot, but not boiling. This should be enough to mix with the ground beans. Stir the mixture for a minute for perfection.
Adjust the lid on the flask and insert the plunger. Do it carefully. The plunger should remain above the mixed water. Leave this for 3-4 minutes.
Finally, slowly and gently put pressure on the plunger. Put an equal and steady pressure on the plunger. Don’t leave it until the brewing is made.
Pour the brewed espresso coffee in a cup. Add milk, sugar, and chocolate to enjoy a beautiful cup of coffee.
When you are done, don’t forget to clean the machine. This decreases your future hassle. No wonder your performance on brewing coffee will increase with time!
You see, the answer varies from person to person. How? The health condition is the actual reason of varying the answer.
We know of two cholesterols. Good and bad. If doctor prohibits you taking cholesterol, probably this is the time to stop using the French Press Maker.
But, wait! There’s more to find. Let’s have a look!
French Press coffee maker brews coffee without filtering the oils. One of these contains dangerous cafestol. This bad cholesterol is responsible for increasing any heart disease or liver problem. Excessive coffee consumption from French Press can lead to an unhealthy condition. I know what you are thinking.
“Isn’t there any way to remove Cafestol?” Yes! From the next time, include a paper filter before pressing the plunger. This little thing will take down the amount of Cafestol to the minimum level.
Who likes yellow teeth? Of course, none does. Another destructive effect of drinking coffee from French press continuously is teeth staining.
This coffee maker extracts and brews the beans from the deep layer. So, similar to the effect of tea, natural acids of coffee destructs the enamel layer of teeth.
Do you wish for such a disaster? Then, limit down the coffee consumption to 4 cups a day.
It’s true! Your baby will deprive of nutrition if you consume coffee during pregnancy. The fetus cannot handle such caffeine increment in the body. Ultimately, the mother may handle some post-pregnancy syndromes concerned with nutrition.
If you really want to enjoy coffee during the pregnancy, keep it down to 1 cup per day. The best way is drinking decaffeinated ones. This will not harm your baby and your love for coffee will remain the same!
Aren’t there any good effects? When we are talking about coffee, there should be some.
The best part of the espresso from French Press coffee maker is its powerful taste. And, you will find the miraculous health benefits in the following:
Coffee, especially from the French press coffee maker has an ingredient called methylpyridinium. Though the name is hard to pronounce for some of us, its health benefit is awesome.
It is a cancer-fighter. Some decaffeinated beans do not contain this. Only French Press Coffee Maker preserves the element even after the immense pressure.
The compound fights with the cancer cells. This means you should start consuming coffee if a cyst is found anywhere in the body.
The regular consumption of methylpyridinium can eventually remove the cyst. Studies from oncologists have proved the effectiveness of this compound on the body positively.
Are you feeling dull during work? This fatigue occurs for the lacking in synapse activities. If brain cells start getting drained, it requires some important antioxidants.
A powerful cup of espresso contains these antioxidants to reactivate your brain cells. Take a sip and get energized in a minute!
The researches on brain cell and synapses have shown how the caffeine removes toxic from the synapse and neurons. The whole brain resurrects.
Now you know why coffee is free at offices. Got it?
If you are forgetting things every now and then, this is possibly the sign of future Parkinson or Alzheimer’s.
You need to take precaution from an early age. And, what can be a better remedy than a cup of espresso every day!
Use the French Press Coffee Machine that helps to keep the coffee powerful and strong. Simply add some milk or sugar and drink it.
Don’t exceed the consumption. You see that can boomerang the effect.
Why do you need a healthy liver? To digest everything properly, right? But that’s just a little part of its overall function.
A healthy liver requires plenty of incentives to function. Among them, caffeine is a very important one.
This has to be raw and strong which is found especially in espresso coffee. What else better than the French Espresso Coffee Maker for raw and strong taste!
If you want to identify how much the coffee is brewed, the color says it all. The darker it gets, the better the brewing is.
French Press coffee maker gives you the darkest color. So, this surely has a strong and powerful taste which is good for your liver.
The coffee maker is so beautiful that you can keep it anywhere. It fits anywhere on your shelf. However, cleanliness is a must. Here, you will find some caretaking tips of the French Press Coffee Maker.
The coffee maker is like a flask with a plunger. The varieties are available in the market. Nevertheless, the assembling is quite the same. First, keep the flask on a plain surface. Then, insert the plunger lid properly. This will fit accordingly.
Apparently, we have already discussed cleaning procedures. The tool is dishwasher safe. A simple rinse can remove the stains. You can use vinegar for maximum cleanliness.
Pressing the plunger has to be slow and steady. This gives the best result always. Maintain a gentle yet firm pressure on the plunger to get the most brewed beans.
French Press coffee maker’s flask can either be made of steel or glass. Be careful while pouring hot water in it. This may create viable stains. Also, grab the handle while pouring to avoid any injury.
Keep the machine anywhere safe. But the exterior is breakable. To avoid any accidental breakage, store it somewhere out of reach from children. Some of the parts are not replaceable. Consider this as an important issue for the coffee maker.
As you already know about the health benefits and side effects, let’s see some actual benefit of having a French Press Machine.
After all these information, what is your opinion?
French Press can reduce your cost on getting a cup of cappuccino from cafés. You can simply make your own coffee at home. Being easy to use and convenient to handle has made it the people’s favorite manual espresso machine.
It saves a plenty of electric and restaurant bills. So, will you get it now?

But being a heavy coffee enthusiast myself, following are the tried and tested measures that best worked for me:
Coffee! This one word brings smiles on most of our faces. Why?
This tasty and fresh beverage has the power to regenerate the energy level.
For getting the maximum freshness even after weeks of buying coffee beans, you should know the most useful techniques to store it.
The storage facility mostly depends on the condition of the coffee. How?
For unroasted beans, you need to apply a technique which involves less connection with the air or external environments.
To store coffee beans for short times, keeping them inside the package with a plastic clip will be enough.
In order to increase the freshness for several weeks, you may use an airtight jar. Freezing is okay, but for once!
Yes. You cannot freeze the coffee frequently. It gets stale and every bit of the refreshing coffee flavor will be gone forever.
A completely different approach is applicable for storing ground coffee. Rather than doing any of these, just keep them on the shelf in the package with an airtight clip.
This will preserve the coffee powder for a long time.
Some people choose to store unroasted coffee beans in the basement or cellar at home.
Let me remind you guys.
The main enemy of your favorite coffee beans is the moisture. Such stupidity can ruin the entire package.
Do you wish for such a disaster? Well, none does! And, this is why you should go through the following sections.
Because you want it tastes like new!
Coffee beans are very delicate in the natural condition. What happens when you take a sip of coffee in the morning?
You get instant energy.
Coffee has an amazing ingredient called caffeine that makes you energized. The exact technique of storing coffee beans and powder preserves the freshness.
On the other hand, a dull and moisturized cup of coffee may destroy the entire happiness of your morning breakfast.
If you are a coffee-lover, you know very well that coffee beans are expensive. Sometimes it becomes difficult to get high-quality beans too.
To enjoy the flavor for a long time, the storage facility has to be top notch. If you can store it for a long time without ruining the flavor or fragrance, this will save a lot of money.
This is the major reason for knowing the exact technique of storing the beans.
The actual taste of coffee lies in the freshness of flavor.
You will not get the proper feeling unless you can sip a well-stored and well-preserved coffee. Moisture destroys the flavor and creates a dull fragrance. When it mixes with water, the actual taste gets lost.
So, the perfect preservation is very crucial for enjoying the flavor for a long time.
Coffee is not produced in the most of the countries. A country requires importing it from other coffee-producing countries. The price fluctuates a lot because of this reason.
Again, the price of a high-quality bean may rise without any warning.
Having a storage technique makes it easier to drink coffee, even if the price is high. Got the answer?
So, you have to store it to use in the future with the previous price.
The taste of Brazilian coffee is different from Italian beans.
But you may like both of them. Becoming a bean collector is a very common thing for the coffee-lovers.
The collection is not everything unless you know the exact method of storing them in your kitchen. Make a collection of different ground coffees with the proper technique described here.
Now, you know that coffee beans are must to be stored. How often should you store the item? Let’s have a look at this point.
Knowing this answer is very important.
Experts have recommended purchasing only the required amount of beans in order to make it easier for storing and using.
If you want to serve or drink it regularly, applying long-term process is not needed at all. Packaging and other inexpensive ways will be better for the storage service.
At the same time, if you think that you want to taste the coffee after a month or a long time, you need to apply extra steps for such a thing. Frequent opening of the storing jar lets the air spoil the freshness.
It means that when you store the coffee for consuming it for a long time; try to open the jar without ruining the inner airtight condition.
Occasional coffee drinkers have a different type of problem in storing the beans. In a lot of cases, they forget to take care of the jar and the beans get stale.
Do you think of something? Then, do not open the jar regularly.
Well, till this discussion, we have seen almost all the possible factors about coffee storing.
Depending on the differentiation of the coffee conditions, we will discuss the storage procedure differently.
Let’s see how you can make this perfect for the next sip.
Generally, by knowing the “coffee storing techniques” we learn about roasted coffee storage. There are three ways you may apply to keep the beans fresh.
Each manufacturing or processing company provides a Food Grade Package during the sale.
This is possibly the most inexpensive way of using as the storage. Just cut the upper portion horizontally. Keep a plastic spoon inside the package for using it during the coffee-making process.
You can also use silver or wooden spoons. But plastic spoon works better and preserves the internal condition fresh.
When it requires closing the package, simply fold the cut portion and attach them with a clip. You can use a clip or stapler for closing the package. Never forget to fold before clipping it.
There are a lot of buying options in the market for jars and pots. Not all of the jars are airtight. Some of them are vacuum jars too.
There remains confusion between these two types of jars. The vacuum jars are not good for preserving anything for a long time. Rather than buying it, purchase an airtight jar.
Why airtight jars? It saves the beans from moisture’s.
Generally, the lids of airtight jars have a different type of lid. If you need a spoonful of coffee, open the lid and take it out easily.
There requires absolutely no reason to be concerned about getting moisture’s. The air will not pass through the lid.
Where there is a need, there is a solution!
Understanding the problem of the experts have invented special coffee canisters. These are made in order to keep the roasted beans preserved for a long time.
All you have to do is purchasing one and pouring the beans in it. Later on, bring out the beans and grind it for having a beautiful coffee experience.
The below 3 techniques are for roasted coffee beans. Now, let’s have a glance at the storing techniques of coffee powder:
Don’t you like extra effort for a tasteful cup of coffee?
Then, you should purchase coffee powders. There are some famous international brands who manufacture the best quality powder.
These are also required preserving with the best techniques.
After you purchase the powder package, cut the upper part carefully.
Pour all the powders into an airtight jar or a mason jar with lid.
Confirm that the lid works perfectly and makes the internal part fresh.
Heat and excessive cold are equally harmful to the taste of the coffee powder.
So, don’t take the jar near an oven or inside a refrigerator unless you have to store it for a long time.
Keep it somewhere the temperature is normal.
To save it from the reach of children and pets, keep it carefully on a rack or shelf. As we stated earlier that the temperature of the room should be normal, you must keep it away from the oven or an AC.
If you are a seller or distributor, unroasted coffee storing can become a serious concern for you. But the solution is quite simple.
Unroasted beans are like the dry fruits. What do you do to keep an apple fresh for a long time?
You freeze it!
Though we suggest not freezing the roasted beans, unroasted beans are completely safe to be preserved in a freezer. There are three steps to make it done properly.
Among the unroasted beans, not all of them are green. Sort out the brownish-black beans and green beans separately. It is necessary to save the beans from getting stale.
Pack them in different airtight packages. Make sure that the package becomes airtight. Each package should contain the similar type of beans as we have sorted in the previous section.
After the packing is completed, these are required putting inside a sack. It can be either made of plastic or fabric. Depending on the size of the freezer, adjust the sack size. Confirming the freshness should get the highest priority.
Remember that you are not preserving meat or fish in the freezer. The unroasted beans have a little delicacy with the temperature. You have to adjust the temperature to a minimum level to match with the room temperature.
Do you need more? Well, these are all renowned techniques for preserving coffee in roasted, unroasted or powdered condition.
Proper storing is not the ultimate solution for enjoying coffee for a long time.
Actually, you should have the understanding of the environment handling.
Coffees are mostly produced in neotropical regions. It is the major reason for heat sensitivity.
To solve the issue, you have to follow the following tips!
If it is possible, don’t buy coffee more than you need for a week. This is the ultimate rule for having the best quality taste in every sip of this amazing beverage.
However, you may want to ration the beans for the future as we have discussed previously. That will be a completely different consequence.
Every time you purchase some, you are actually opening the already tightened and preserved beans. And, the result of such purchase is continuous fresh taste without building any storing facility.
The beans become damped in a moisturized condition.
Roasted coffee beans have to be preserved in a neat and clean environment.
This requires cleaning the kitchen regularly.
Though the cold temperature may comfort you, this can be destructive for the taste of your favorite beans.
Either you can keep it far from the air-conditioned region or simply keep it at normal temperature.
Each time you open the lid of the jar or upper clip of the package, close it promptly after taking out the required amount.
The lid should be tightened properly so that no air can pass.
Any connection with the external environment causes dampness and moisture.
If you are going to refill the coffee jar with a new package, clean it properly with a paper towel or dry cloths.
There is a strong possibility of creating rust when you apply water.
A piece of clean dry cloth is the best option for cleaning the jar.
After discussing all the methods and tips about coffee storage, which one attracts you the most? And, which one of these tips you find useful?
Let us know. Keep it on the go. Take the fresh sip of every coffee drop.
Store for the future and make the best cup every day.
