You should indulge in these rituals to achieve the right kind of pleasure while drinking your coffee.
It’s true that people drink coffee to avoid drowsiness, but others say it multitasks as an introduction to topics of conversation and is the birthplace of brilliant ideas. The scope is constantly changing. Some coffeeheads prefer their caffeine hit at a café rather than brewing a cup at home. We’re talking wide spaces, comfy couches and interiors to boost your mood. Here are some rituals to make every gulp of self-brewed coffee worth
just a little more.
SEPARATE YOUR BASICS!
Thou shalt never again ask for your coffee to be pre-mixed. From now on, ask your barista to serve you your coffee powder and hot water separately. Doing this will allow you to enjoy the process more and extract extra flavour from it.
BREW THE RIGHT STUFF
Consistency is the key. To get the perfect taste of coffee, you should have a standard procedure when brewing. For example, you need 20-35 seconds when brewing an espresso while pour-over or drip brewing will take between 2.5 to 3.5 minutes.
KEEPING IT HOT & COLD
Whenever you order your coffee, don’t get the barista to mix it right then and there. You need to cool the water temperature to extract maximum taste out of the coffee. When overheated, water has the ability to change the flavour of your coffee to something more bitter.
THE RIGHT RATIO
Making the perfect cup of coffee can seem troublesome, especially when it comes to the water to coffee ratio. A good ratio is 15-18 ml of water per one gramme of coffee powder. You’ll notice the taste change if you alter this measurement.
TRY SOMETHING NEW
This isn’t just because you’re bored with the taste, but adding other flavours to your coffee will be a new and mostly exciting experience. Don’t be afraid of experimenting because you just might create the next caramel macchiato.
