Subject: How to make a cup of coffee
 

Buy good coffee is the first step in making good coffee, proper storage, grinding, brewing when water temperature and contact time are coffee powder is an important factor affecting the quality of coffee. How to brew tasty coffee, must meet a number of factors:
Beans: Want to own brew a cup of coffee, in addition to brewing techniques, the most important thing is to buy good quality coffee beans. Beans should also note the time of purchase the color and grain are uniform size, good coffee not only looks shiny and with a rich aroma and no mixed smell.
Grinding degree: according to the coffee machine and used to do the right grind, grinding can be divided into three stages: rough grinding (percolator), grinding (drip coffee), and fine grind (espresso machine). The coarse ground coffee for filter coffee maker (the American tradition of brewing device), medium ground coffee for follicular type, flannel filter type, siphon coffee maker brewing method is most suitable for fine grinding coffee distillation device (also known as drop-in coffee machine). And to remind you that the shorter brewing time, grind the particles should be more detailed. Because the smaller the particle, the larger contact area and the hot water, the brew time is shorter. And meticulous polishing will make coffee more bitter, but also easier to block the coffee machine; too coarse grinding, it will not taste out over coffee.
Fresh optimum temperature of the water: 97% of coffee is water, only with good quality water to brew the coffee aroma and rich original. Best to use filtered water to brew coffee. Do not boil the coffee because coffee boiling water will become bitter, but also noted that the water temperature should be lower than 96 degrees centigrade.
Coffee is best not to reheat. Brew every cook should pay attention to only the desired weight, and preferably just cooked when drinking. The best coffee drinking temperature is 85 degrees Celsius.

What's coffee again? Must be some new designer drink, probably from the Coca Cola company.  ;-P

Moderators need to move this thread (with apologies to the nob-ster) out of the Lever Forum and into....the spam folder. LOL

Sometimes our discussion here can be disappointing. Why? We have different views and procedure in having a cup of coffee and it seems other commenters try to say that he or she is the only person has the right opinion and pin down other comment.

I believe that not all coffee drinkers are having the same reason to drink coffee. It is rather a matter of preference, how we drink coffee and how we prepare a cup of coffee. For me, I rather prefer to drink coffee in a simple way by just mixing coffee into a cup with water and sugar. I drink it when I felt sleepy during my work in the office. And coffee for me makes me healthier.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.

I could not find anything controversial in Winkie's post, since it basically covers the basics of brewing coffee. I just found it funny to start a discussion on a subject like that in a forum of coffee aficionados like it was something groundbraking or new. It's rather like carrying coals to Newcastle.

Both of these posters are what I like to refer to as "link spammers" whose main goal is to get links to their sites increased. On a high-profile site like CG, having lots of links from the forums can increase your standing in Google search results. Nothing these posters post is ever substantial or controversial. If there is controversy, it is generated by the community.

My advice would be to ignore these kinds of posts.
