When you stop at the convenience store or at a local coffee shop for your
morning cup of coffee have you ever wondered how your cup of coffee came about?
No, not how it was brewed but how it was that you are able to drink a cup of
coffee. Sure, the coffee machine plays an important role in making your
perfectly brewed cup of coffee, but just how did that coffee maker first come
about, or how did the first person who ever sipped the first cup of coffee
discover its magic?
Legend goes back to a lonely sheep herder in Ethiopia who noticed his sheep
acting strangely every time they ate certain red berries from a certain bush.
One has to wonder why he himself decided to give the berries a try. Well that
is of no consequence because since that life altering decision man has been
enjoying coffee in many different cultures, different countries and different
places. Do you know they even drink coffee on the Space Shuttle? I wonder what
kind of coffee machine they have.
The one million dollar question is exactly what makes a good cup of coffee?
Does buying one of the best coffee makers lead to a great cup of coffee? Not
necessarily.. Start with great coffee beans. You can even roast your own
coffee beans with the Home coffee roaster machines. Roasting machines allow
coffee drinkers to buy premium coffee beans at discount prices and roast them at
home. The coffee drinker is in charge of the roasting level; medium or dark
roast. Coffee drinkers also advise against buying pre-ground coffee,
pre-grinding diminishes the coffee flavour and aroma. Apparently the best part
of the coffee bean is found deep within it therefore pre-ground, once the
package is opened loses that rich coffee aroma. Grinding your beans before you
start percolating your coffee ensures you get the most out of the bean. Talking
about grinding the beans there are also two types of coffee grinders; burr and
blade grinders, both serve the purpose equally well, so the type of grinder you
have does not affect your cup of coffee.
Shopping for coffee makers
There are three different types of coffee makers. There are filter coffee
makers that basically drip hot boiling water over the ground coffee beans then
filter the coffee over a disposable paper filter. Then there are the
espresso/cappuccino coffee makers and finally the combination coffee makers that
make both cappuccino and filter coffee. Choose a coffee machine that suits your
needs. Take into consideration how much and how often you drink coffee. How
much you are willing to spend on seeking the perfect cup of coffee. Remember to
look online, you can find many discount coffee makers.
Whether you enjoy your coffee with or without cream or whether you enjoy a
robust and flavourful cup of black coffee remember to thank that lowly sheep
herder who took a risk and ate the first coffee bean.
