Coffee grinders jumpstart your java

All the experts agree.

People who want the best flavor in their coffee use coffee grinders. Coffee grinders work so well because they unleash the bean oils and aromas right before you make a pot. It’s like opening a fresh can of ground coffee each and every time you make some joe.

Of course, besides coffee grinders, there’s also some technique that goes into making a good pot of pick me up. This holds true for both the way
you put your coffee in your Coffee Maker,

the kind of Coffee Maker you have,

and the type of water you use. First, coffee gurus recommend adding two heaping tablespoons of whole beans to the grinder for every six ounces of water you plan to use. To be exact, you probably should measure out your water before you add it to the coffee maker if you are using a drip coffee maker.

As for the type of coffee maker to go with coffee grinders, experts say here that a press pot or a coffee maker with a gold cone, or other permanent filter, is best. Picky coffee drinkers do not use paper filters. They have an aftertaste and absorb the special aromatic oils from the coffee beans that are essential for superb taste.
If you must use paper filters,

try rinsing them with hot water beforehand to wash out the aftertaste.

It is also important to know how long to let your coffee brew. After using coffee grinders, the ground coffee is very delicate. If water contacts it for too long, for instance, your coffee can end with an overly bitter coffee. On the other hand, if water doesn’t contact the coffee grounds for long enough, your coffee may lack its full flavor.

You don’t want to keep your coffee sitting on a burner or hotplate too long either after it’s been through coffee grinders and then brewed. More than 20 minutes after the brewing is done is dangerous because the taste will start to become bitter. And don’t think of reheating your coffee. Talk about rough on your stomach! Follow these tips, though, and you’ll have a stomach, and taste buds, as well as good cups of coffee every time.

Recipe For Mocha Latte

A can't miss recipe for mocha latte

The popularity of coffee shops across America has led to an explosion of tasty and exotic coffee-based beverages. They come in variety of delicious flavors, from chocolate to espresso, mint to strawberry, vanilla and nutmeg. One of the common denominators of all these drinks, besides their frothy appealing appearance, is their price tag. Many cost upwards of five bucks, the same price as many lunches at your local fast-food joint. I don’t know about you, but there are a few other things I’d rather invest my money in than some crushed ice, a shot of espresso, and a plastic cup. Don’t get me wrong, I love mocha lattes just as much as the next person, and I would kill for a recipe for mocha latte that I could use at home. Actually, I don’t need to kill anyone to get a recipe for mocha latte. Here’s one right below!

This recipe for mocha latte starts like a traditional café latte, which in Americans is a lot different from what they do in Europe. So if you’re from Europe, read especially carefully to get the American nuances. Where you come from in most places in Europe, café latte consists of one part espresso and three parts frothed milk. The maker then pours both at the same time into a large bowl or wide brimmed cup.

Here in America, though, the base of the recipe for mocha latte only sometimes begins with the same proportions of espresso and frothed milk: one to three. Other times, the proportions depend on what other flavorings you add. For instance, if you add whipped cream as a topping, your café latte may consist of one part espresso to two and one half parts frothed milk. That extra half part becomes the whipped cream or other extra flavoring.

In our case for this recipe for mocha latte, our extra flavorings will be the chocolate that gives the drink its mocha name. We will also get a little crazy and add mint to the mix, sort of like a steamy bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Start with 1.75 ounces of chocolate syrup. Pour the chocolate syrup into a 12-ounce cup with 0.5 ounces of cream de menthe syrup. Then add 2 ounces of freshly brewed espresso, topped with the hot steamed or foamed milk. Stir, making sure to lift from the bottom. This will bring the syrups up. Top the whole concoction with a dollop of whipped cream, chocolate powder, and shaved chocolate.

If on the other hand, you just want to enjoy the taste and let someone else make it! Get it here!
