Steaming milk until it reaches 150-160 ºF. Swirl milk vigorously. If any bubbles are visible pound the pitcher on the counter several times. Swirl after pounding for 20-30 seconds. This can be done effectively while the espresso is pouring. Begin pouring milk into the espresso.

Cold brewed coffee

In general, cold-brewed coffee is more caffeinated than hot-brewed coffee. With roughly a 1:8 coffee-to-water ratio, place your grounds in the bottom of the jar, and cover with cold water. Stir gently until well combined, then cover and leave to steep for 18-24 hours. Let sit for 12 hours at room temperature or 24 hours in the fridge. Cold-brewed coffee is 67 percent less acidic than hot-brewed. Without all that acid, the burnt flavor that plagues hot-brewed coffee is eliminated. Plus, the reduced acid makes it healthier for your stomach and your teeth.

Coffee grounds

Coffee grounds are widely believed to be an acidifying agent when added to garden soil, the pH of grounds usually tends to be closer to neutral.

Cold Brew Coffee

During the cold-brew process, time replaces heat. The brewing is either done slowly by drip or filter, or French press. Cold water brewing extracts the delicious flavor compounds and caffeine from coffee beans, but leaves behind myriad bitter oils and biting fatty acids, including undesirable elements such as ketones, esters and amides.

How Much Coffee Should You Drink?

Healthy adults can safely consume up to about 400 milligrams of caffeine a day, which is roughly the equivalent of four cups of coffee.

Things to Consider when Buying Coffee:

  • The green coffee beans should be of nearly equal size 17/18, 15/16, 13/14 etc, be similarly shaped, and have a similar color.
  • Ensure that the producer separates coffee lots by both geographic area and coffee varietal.
  • Washed Arabica coffees should be even and bright.
  • Inquire about the coffee drying conditions on the coffee estate.
  • For all coffees, inquire about the coffee processing.
  • Natural (dry) processed coffees will often be covered in brown silverskin which has attached itself to the bean
  • The best coffee brewing temperature

    The brewing temperature of the water used is very important. It should be between 195 F (91 C) and 205 F (96 C).

    Brewing time

    In a drip system, the contact time should be approximately 5 minutes. If you are making your coffee using a French Press, the contact time should be 2-4 minutes. Espresso has an especially brief brew time — the coffee is in contact with the water for only 20-30 seconds. Cold brew, on the other hand, should steep overnight (about 12 hours).

    Store Coffee

    To preserve your beans’ fresh roasted flavor as long as possible, store them in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature. Coffee beans can be beautiful, but avoid clear canisters which will allow light to compromise the taste of your coffee. Keep your beans in a dark and cool location.
