A guide to gourmet coffee

"Gourmet coffee is nothing like wine"

By : Dakota Caudilla

Even a Coffee Bean or San Francisco Coffee outlet frequenter won’t be able to master the art of appreciating true gourmet coffee unless they know the history and info about it. Oh, of course, you don’t 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 it is 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 you’re going to learn how to appreciate gourmet coffee, only buy 100% Arabica coffee.

It’s pretty hard to find freshly roasted coffee beans on the shelves of the local supermarket. Chances are, the coffee beans that you’re 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. It’s 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 you’ve purchased the coffee beans and will use them soon, don’t just leave them out there at room temperature. What you should do is to store them in an airtight container in the fridge. However, if you’re going to keep it for a while, store them in an airtight container in the FREEZER.

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

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

One last thing about gourmet coffee - learn to enjoy it, appreciate the smell, love the taste, experiment with it and you’ll soon know the wonder of it. If you’re hurrying off for work in the morning, forget about gourmet coffee! During the morning rush, just stick to instant coffee.
