TIP OF THE DAY: Put A Cap On The Coffee

As tempting as it may be to buy two different
bags, don’t buy more than a week’s worth.

If you want your home-brewed coffee to taste as good as café-brewed, don’t brew “old” coffee. Air is the enemy of ground coffee—you can notice the decline in flavor at the end of the first day.

Whole beans aren’t impervious; they are at peak flavor when fresh-roasted, but then start to decline—though not as quickly as ground coffee.

For a more flavorful cup:

• Don’t buy more coffee than you can use in a week.

• Store the coffee bag in a plastic storage bag; squeeze out the excess air before sealing.

• Keep the bag in a cool, dry, dark place—but not the fridge, which has very moist air.

Now that you’ve got the beans down, here’s how to brew a great cup of coffee.
