While going to buy coffee beans or ground coffee, try some different coffee flavors. Make sure you buy them in small quantity. Check out if it is Robusta or Arabica or a mixture of both.

Tip4: Grind yourself

Try to buy coffee beans and grind them fresh. A cup of coffee brewed from fresh beans is more aromatic and tastier than brewing from pre-packed grounded coffee.

Tip5: Go for correct measurements

Always remember to have a fair amount of ground coffee while brewing. A lesser coffee will not have the desired taste. If you are preparing an espresso coffee at home, use 7 grams for every shot. Coffee is all about flavor and taste.

Tip6: Avoid Reheating

Coffee loses its flavor on reheating and will result in a foul taste. Also, don’t add boiling water after the coffee is brewed; this can result in burning and changing the taste of the original coffee.

Tip7: Use a thermometer

140o F is perfect for steaming the milk. If the temperature exceeds, it may lead to burning of milk leading to a foul taste.
