7 Steps to Your Perfect Cup of Coffee at Home 

Selecting Beans 

Opt for arabica or robusta based on your taste. Experiment with origins, processing, and roasting for your preferred flavor profile. 

Precision Grinding: 

Use a burr grinder for a consistent grind. Adjust coarseness for your chosen method and grind just before brewing for freshness. 

Water Matters 

Choose filtered water with balanced minerals. Aim for a TDS between 75-250 ppm and a pH of 6.5-7.5 to enhance coffee flavor. 

Temperature Control 

Maintain water at 195-205°F (90-96°C) to avoid scalding or under-extraction. Use a thermometer or follow a simple boiling and cooling rule. 

Measure Right 

Achieve balance with a 1:15-1:18 coffee-to-water ratio. Accurate measurements ensure a perfectly brewed cup, not too strong or weak. 

Brewing Technique 

Follow specific instructions for your chosen method. Adjust brewing time to prevent under or over-extraction for the best flavor.
