September 17, 2004, Newsletter Issue #19: Don`t Let Your Coffee Stew

Tip of the Week


The worst way to brew coffee is to do it the way your parents and grandparents used to do it - by leaving it to boil and stew on the stove for hours on end. You want the coffee to brew for 4-6 minutes only and then either drink it right away or keep it in an insulated carafe. Keeping it hot over a hotplate may be convenient, but it really spoils the more subtle flavors of your coffee.

Two ways to avoid ´stewing´ your coffee is to either use a French Press or use a coffee brewer that drips the coffee into an insulated carafe.
