Perfect cup of Joe ...
Store your beans in an airtight container at room temperature. This provides more flavor than chilled beans. Use the best water possible. If you normally use bottled or filtered water rather than tap water for drinking, use it for your coffee as well. Be sure to measure correctly. For the best blend, use 2 tablespoons of beans to 6 ounces of water. Serve your coffee straight off a boil for the best taste.
An added perk? That aroma, which fills your house as you start your day.
