How To Choose The Right Coffee Machine - Articles Surfing

Having a coffee machine can make a world of difference - you can get up each morning and enjoy a nice cup of coffee and a boost of caffiene to get you up. You also have to worry about what kind of coffee machines to work with. There are still the old- fashioned drip machines, but the even more old- fashioned presses and hand brew machines are back in style. Then there are the newfangled pod coffee machines, that infuse hot water through coffee pads, as well as top- notch espresso machines. With all these choices, you might have a hard time choosing the right coffee machine for you.

1. Drip Machines

The drip machine style is still the easiest to operate, so it's a great choice for beginners. They use a method of brewing that can create delicious coffee. The key to these machines is using a gold, nylon, or other type of permanent filters. Permanent filters make sure that the flavor molecules from the coffee grinds pass through into the water, but more importantly, the permanent filters do this without adding unwanted flavors.

2. Paper Filter

What is wrong with paper filters for coffee machines? They impart an aftertaste into the finished product, and they absorb some of the special flavor molecules and aromatic oils from your coffee beans, that are what gives your cup of joe its tantalizing taste. Rinse paper filters with hot water before using them if you must. This will wash out some of the aftertaste.

3. A Fine Grind Is Always Best

When using drip coffee machines, stick with medium to fine grinds of coffee. Be sure to only add the right temperature water to the mix. This means water temperatures that are between 195 degrees and 205 degrees to ensure the best coffee ground extraction.

4. Brewing Tips

If you want to be a coffee brewmaster, you should follow these tips from the pros -

- Remove the grounds before the last few drops have filtered through to prevent bitterness
- Stir the coffee pot before serving
- Use filtered water, not tap water. A simple water filter jug can cost as little as ten dollars.
