Coffee: Getting the Perks from Home

Wednesday, July 7, 2021

Coffee is something that many of us drink on a day to day basis. We might have a cup when we get up to perk us up for the day. We might pick one up on our commute to work. We might grab one on our lunch break. We might meet with friends in a cafe. It’s something that many of us actively enjoy. On top of this, it can have some health benefits for you too! Sure, coffee often get a bit of a bad rep amongst the health community, largely due to its caffeine content. But many studies have found that coffee can actually contain plenty of antioxidants that your body can benefit from. Some studies have also found that drinking coffee each day can help to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes! If caffeine is something that bothers you, you can also get plenty of caffeine free options. Right now, as we’re spending more time at home as a result of the pandemic, many of us are wondering how we can get cafe quality coffee without having to head to an actual cafe. Here are some tips to help you brew the perfect cup at home!

Have the Right Tools
Having the right tools is a great first step when it comes to creating a great coffee. Perhaps the easiest way to go about things is to invest in a good coffee machine, like the De’Longhi ec702. A coffee machine will lift all of the hard work from your shoulders and make brewing coffee a simple and fast process. Make sure to read your manual before getting started to ensure that you know how to work the ins and outs of your individual machine. If you don’t have the budget for a machine, you might want to consider a cafetiere instead. These are generally affordable and will brew fresh coffee beans and strain them to give you a truly fresh drink to enjoy.

Have the Right Beans
Next, you need to focus on your beans. You can have the best machine or cafetiere in the world, but if you don’t have good coffee beans, you’re not going to brew a good cup regardless. Now, nowadays, with demand for coffee on the rise, most supermarkets have a wide variety of different beans and flavoured coffees. But you may also want to consider shopping with more specialist, independent and local brands. This pumps money back into small businesses and you often find that you get a better quality product too! The three main types of coffee bean are Coffea Arabica (better known as Arabica coffee), Coffea Canephora (or Robusta coffee), and Coffea liberica Bull (or Liberian coffee). None is necessarily better than the other. The best for you will depend entirely on your individual taste. So, get taste testing until you find the perfect bean for you!

These two steps are absolutely essential to brewing a delicious coffee without having to step foot outside your front door. Hopefully, the information will guide you on your journey to the perfect home brewed cup of Joe!
