Simple advice on how to best prepare filter coffee at home

An advantage of filter coffee when compared to other types of coffee is the ease of preparation. Paying attention to a few significant details will result in filter coffee that possesses an amazing taste.

You do not need advanced skills or expensive specialized equipment in order to make filter coffee at home. An affordable coffee maker and a few good tips will ensure that the taste of the filter coffee you prepare at home matches the one you order in any respectable coffee serving establishment.

In theory, any coffee variety can be used to make filter coffee. For best results, however, it is important to pay attention to factors such as the blend, the duration, and temperature of roasting, as well as the amount of time elapsed since the coffee has been roasted.

The best filter coffee

The filter coffee blend we offer in our roastery is a uniquely balanced mixture of Arabica and Robusta coffee, an ideal combination of flavors from Guatemala, Colombia, Brazil, and India. When mixing different coffee varieties, it is important to select the ones that possess distinct but discreet flavors, so that they can be preserved during the filtering process. By combining varieties from Asia, Central, and South America, and by using our unique, traditional recipe for filter coffee, we achieve a result that showcases the flavors and the floral characteristics that coffee possessed while still in berry form.

Our coffee is roasted every morning in front of you, so as to preserve its freshness, its rich flavor, and strong aroma. Ideally, the shorter the time elapsed since the coffee had been ground, the better the end result – and your coffee drinking experience – will be. Over time, the coffee loses its properties – its aroma fades, its taste becomes less pronounced, etc.

The taste and aroma of coffee greatly depend on the grinding process. A very finely ground coffee will be very smooth; a coarsely ground coffee, on the other hand, may leave a less distinct aftertaste.

Thus, the best way to enjoy a cup of fresh, tasteful coffee every morning is to buy coffee frequently but in smaller quantities. If you have a coffee grinder, we recommend buying coffee beans to be ground right before preparing filter coffee. Whether you opt for ground coffee or not, make sure to avoid putting it in the refrigerator, especially if you prefer a dark roast. Roasted coffee beans are porous and will quickly let in moisture and odors from another foodstuff. Instead, maintain coffee at room temperature in an airtight container such as glass or ceramic vases, preferably with a rubber seal.

The only thing left to do is to choose the variety of filter coffee to suit your taste. We urge you to follow the above steps and prepare your freshly ground, aromatic filter coffee. Enjoy the coming winter with a mug full of your favorite warm beverage.
