    There is nothing more wonderful than waking up in the morning and smelling that wonderful smell of hot coffee. Millions of people around the world love that smell. Coffee is a drink to be savored and enjoyed, and here are some tips to help you make sure you can savor the perfect cup of coffee every day.
    No matter how attached you are to your favorite blend, don't be afraid to try a new variety. You don't need to invest in a large bag to try out something new. Almost all brands will offer a single pot or sampler size to allow you to try out new flavors.
    After buying coffee opening and beans the bag, don't leave them in that bag as your storage solution. Instead, place them in an air-tight container out of direct light. You will be able to use them over a longer period of time this way.

    Buy a coffee grinder, and buy whole bean coffee. There is no substitute for the taste of freshly ground beans. If you can't afford a coffee grinder, you can still buy whole beans. Before you leave the store, most supermarkets have grinders that you can use to grind your coffee purchase.
    Do not keep your coffee in the refrigerator unless it is in a container that is absolutely airtight. This is important because moisture can cause coffee to become moldy. It is best to keep your coffee in the cabinet where it will stay dry, at and warm its best quality.
    Do you enjoy strong coffee? You should try using a French press instead of a drip machine. Pressing the coffee means more oil will end up in your beverage instead of being retained by the filter of your coffee machine. You will find that pressed coffee has more flavor and contains more caffeine.
    The taste of coffee largely depends on the beans. Don't just drink the same thing all the time try a new blend or brand. Try not to let price be the sole deciding factor. If a pricier coffee is stronger than what you normally buy it will last longer, saving you money.
    If you plan to drip brewed coffee, when grinding your coffee at the store, use a medium grind. A medium grind is similar to the consistency of granulated sugar. This grind is perfect for a drip brew that takes about 6 minutes. If it takes longer, use a coarser grind.
    Try using coffee when cooking meats. When you think of coffee in foods, you typically think of a flavor that is rather strong. In desserts, that's definitely true. But when you use coffee as a rub for red meat, it actually brings out the flavor of the meat itself, making for a much tastier meal.
    A great tip to remember if you're after the best-tasting cup of coffee is not to let your coffee sit for an extended period of time. Coffee will only stay fresh for about ten minutes so you should be prepared to drink your coffee right after it's been brewed.
    Do not buy purchase coffee that has packaged beans and is pre-flavored. These coffees are made using oil that is hard to clean out of a coffee pot. They will also affect future pots of coffee that you make, giving each subsequent cup a funny taste. Furthermore, the flavors these coffees are made with tend not to taste good anyway.

    Once you have opened your coffee, it is important that you store it properly. Conditions that are too hot or too cold could take away its flavor. Store coffee in a container that can be sealed tightly and keep it in a room that has room temperature. Keep it away from the stove!
    Most coffee drinkers prefer a mild cup of coffee over any other strength. Roast your beans for around 7 minutes, or until they double in size and pop. This will make you a wonderfully smooth and mild cup of coffee. This is perfect for iced coffees and other coffee drinks.
    Coffee Machine
    You should invest in a quality coffee machine and make your own coffee at home if you tend to drink a lot of coffee. Go to a coffee shop only occasionally, for instance on weekends or when you go out with some friends. This should help you save a lot.
