HIGHLIGHTS: If you want to make better coffee at home, make sure you’re using good-tasting water . . . try grinding your own beans to get more flavor . . . and don’t use skim milk as creamer. It dilutes the flavor, but doesn’t add much to it.
FULL STORY: If you’re sick of dropping $5 at Starbucks every day, here are three easy ways to make better coffee at home . . .
1. Use better water. If you don’t like the taste of your tap water on its own, don’t use it for coffee either. Especially if you have hard water, or use a water softener. Investing in bottled water, or using a Brita can make your coffee taste a lot better.
2. Grind your own beans. Pre-ground coffee gets stale really fast. So it isn’t as fresh and has a lot less flavor. Even if whole beans cost a little more, it might be worth it. You can get a cheap electric grinder on Amazon for 10 or 20 bucks.
3. Make sure you’re adding to the flavor, not just diluting it. One mistake people make is using skim milk instead of whole milk or creamer. Low-fat milk is a little more watery, and doesn’t add much to the taste.
Whole milk has more calories, but you’re not using very much. One ounce of skim has about 10 calories, compared to 18 for whole milk.
