Technology is always getting better and better. We have got computers, airplanes, satellite TV, toasters, microwaves, and the most essential of all home appliances - the coffee maker. If you are a coffee drinker, then you have probably made sure that you get the best coffee maker to fulfill your java requirements.
The thing is, even when people have got the best coffee maker that is available on the market, even when that coffee maker has a digital meter to tell them the temperature, the water level, the coffee weight; even if it has a timer to make the coffee with a precision that goes down to the microsecond level even after all this, sometimes people don't feel like their best coffee maker is really, honestly, giving them its best efforts. The coffee still does not taste good.
Well, it is really quite simple. Your best coffee maker is just a machine and it is not sold with coffee included. You have to supply the coffee and the best coffee that you are going to taste out of your best coffee maker is not going to be determined by the coffee maker but by you. Good beans, good coffee. Bad coffee beans and even a coffee maker that is a few technological notches above the best coffee maker will leave you dissatisfied.
Ever wonder why hand made coffee tastes good? Because people who care enough about their taste buds to manually make their coffee, are the very kind of people who would travel an extra few blocks to get those specific types of coffee beans that are better than the rest. That is your clue. Good coffee comes from good coffee beans and the means used for preparing it, are a secondary concern.
And what about water? Did you know that the colorless liquid that everyone takes for granted plays a vital role in the coffee that is brewed? It is important to check the quality of water. While water is normally tasteless and minor variations go unnoticed, it should be remembered that water combines with coffee beans when it is steamed and then the high temperature can release chemicals in the water that can bring about a reduction in flavor.
Choosing the right coffee beans becomes rather confusing. There are beans that are just not meant for the best coffee maker. These beans are used in coffee makers that are kept in public places or which have to endure a lot more traffic than the average family of four. Dried beans are especially very bad as they leave a bad bitter taste.
So in order to enjoy the best cup of coffee, make sure you are picking up the right kind of coffee beans.
