Co-Owner Miles Butler of Many Hands Coffee Co. wants to give one more gift in the form of some easy tips to follow for at homers to brew the best cup ever.
THREE BASIC STEPS FOR GREAT COFFEE
1. Use fresh and never pre-ground beans. By choosing organic, fair trade and packaged in sustainable packaging you’re also feeling good by supporting people and the planet WHILE getting a delicious jolt of goodness.
2. Don’t cheap out on a grinder. They last a long time and if one needs to justify the expense divide the cost by its daily use over the years it will last.
3. Don’t cook coffee by pouring scalding water over it. Instead, let the boiled water chill out for a minute before submerging the grounds. There’s a lot of science behind it, and patience is a virtue so practice it while brewing.
