Quality of Coffee

Quality of coffee

The quality of your coffee depends on the following factors (in no particular order):

1. Time since grinding the beans.

2. Time since roasting.

3. Cleanliness with brewing equipment.

4. Bean quality (what crop, etc.).

5. Water quality. 

Fact: A coffee can in the supermarket often contains major debris, so be careful when you choose. (See note below).

Fact: Once you have freshly roasted and ground coffee, filtered water and equipment free of oil residues from the last brew, quality of beans makes a huge difference.

Arabica beans are usually flavor rich, while robusta beans have more caffeine, less flavor and are cheaper to produce. When you buy coffee, whether in a coffee house or in a supermarket, you want to get 100% arabica, except for espresso blends, which may be a combination of both.

My personal experience says that a 100% arabica espresso blend is better. 

Ιt should be mentioned that coffee is at its best after 12-24 hours of roasting.

Buy only fresh roasted coffee and grind your coffee at the time you want it.
