The Perfect Cup of Coffee
To make your cup of coffee, choose the type of bean and roast that you like. For a mild coffee flavor, choose a Columbian or a “house” blend and for a stronger taste, use a French or Italian roast. The amount of ground coffee and water you use will determine how strong your brew turns out; 1 to 2 tablespoons ground coffee per 2/3 to 1 cup water falls within the traditional boundaries. Use the correct grind – coarse to fine – recommended for your coffeemaker.
- 6 tablespoons freshly ground coffee
- 2 2/3 cups cold water
To brew the coffee, use a drip-style coffeepot (preferably an automatic drip coffeemaker), and line the filter cup with a paper or gold filter. Add the coffee, then pour the water into the water chamber. Brew according to the manufacturer’s directions. Pour the coffee into warm cups.
