Coffee 101

I try not to be a coffee snob, I really do, but every year I come across enough coffee no-nos that I feel like this post is necessary.

Raise your right hand and pledge to the following:

  • I will use between a 1/2 cup of grounds and 1 cup of grounds for a standard 12 cup coffee maker. 
  • I will research french presses, pour overs, and other specialty brewing methods before using them.
  • I will never, under any circumstances, brew coffee that is over 6 months old.
  • I will never refer to a Starbucks Frappucino as "coffee".

A few others: 
If your coffee tastes bad, it probably is.
Combination coffee shops and Mexican restaurants are bad idea.
