In this episode, i tried to show how to brew a coffee at home with Italian Moka Pot. If you’re a begginner, it should give you the main idea. It’s just another brewing technique out of many. But what makes this way outstanding is;
Easy! No need expensive machinery and tools.
Delicious! Your coffee doesn’t get burnt and bitter as you don’t apply extremely hot water and very high pressure like they do in coffee shops. You just don’t force the coffee to brew it.
Cheap! A decent coffee maker costs around £100. And it still give a massive torture to your coffee beans.
And another take away from this video should be importance of grinding your coffee just before you brew it for orgasmic coffee experience. But why?
Here is why:
REASONS WHY FRESH GROUND COFFEE IS BETTER
Moisture also plays a huge role when it comes to the quality and consistency of a coffee brew. Oils present in coffee beans are soluble in water. Most people always assume that the character of coffee is obtained from the visible granules or grounds. Thanks to the solubility of these oils in water, you are able to enjoy a sweet and delicious cup of coffee, that smells great. However, you don’t require a full cup of water to dissolve or extract those precious oils.
If you didn’t know, all those odours moving around your kitchen, also infect ground coffee, albeit slowly. That onion you have just cut moves straight into your ground coffee, thus altering the overall taste and flavour. If you hate the idea of an onion-flavored coffee, then you should avoid buying ground coffee. It is the only way you will be able to enjoy the full flavour of coffee, without contamination.
You also need to know that grounds are not safe inside your refrigerator, as most people would make you believe. A refrigerator is used to store many types of food materials, from beverages, vegetables to meat products. Although the extreme cold might reduce your sense of smell, that does not mean that the flavours are not there. There are still plenty of them inside the refrigerator, and you don’t want a brew that tastes like bacon and smells like bananas.
Control is a key element when it comes to brewing coffee. You will have a greater chance of brewing an exceptional cup of coffee if you have greater control over the brewing process. This means that grinding your own beans gives you greater control over the grind size, which has a huge impact on the flavour. Most coffee brewing methods such as pour-over, AeroPress, and espresso, work with different grind sizes. However, buying pre-ground coffee limits you to only one size.
Grinding your own coffee is a step in the right direction if you want to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee. Similar to other things, fresh is always better. Apart from the great aromas and tastes obtained from freshly ground coffee, you will be able to control the grind size, which has a huge impact on flavour. Get a great coffee burr grinder and create your own coffee world.
