Understand and follow the guidelines for each of them, and you're well on your way to brewing a great cup of coffee every time!
Use the right proportion of coffee to water. This is the most important step in making great coffee. For the most flavorful cup of coffee, we recommend using two tablespoons of ground coffee for each six fluid ounces of water. If coffee brewed this way is too strong for your taste, you can add a little hot water to your cup of brewed coffee. Bailey's Coffee Service provides convenient perfect portion packaging to insure every pot you brew offers a great cup of coffee!
The shorter the brewing process, the finer the grind. Different brewing methods have different grind requirements, so grind your coffee for the brewing method you use. The amount of time the coffee and water spend together affects the flavor elements that end up in your cup of coffee, and the design of your coffee maker dictates how long the coffee and water sit in direct contact during the brewing process. Bailey's Coffee Service matches the grind to your automatic coffee machine to insure every pot you brew offers a great cup of coffee!
Use fresh, cold water heated to just off the boil. A cup of coffee is 98 percent water. Therefore, the water you use to make coffee should taste clean, fresh, and free of impurities. Water heated to just off a boil (195° to 205°F) is perfect for extracting the coffee's full range of flavors. Any cooler and the water can't adequately do the job. Your Bailey's supplied automatic coffee maker will heat the water just right for you. Bailey's Coffee Service offers professional water filtration to insure every pot you brew offers a great cup of coffee!
Use freshly roasted and ground coffee. Think of coffee as fresh produce. The enemies of coffee are oxygen, light, heat, and moisture. To keep coffee fresh, store it in an opaque, airtight container at room temperature. Storing coffee in the refrigerator or freezer for daily use can damage the coffee as warm, moist air condenses to the beans whenever the container is opened.
