Boiling Kills the Taste: How to Brew Coffee Correctly

Aromatic coffee has long ceased to be just an invigorating drink and has become part of a certain ritual. Many people are attentive both to the choice of coffee and to the way it is prepared.

The secrets of instant coffee

The answer to the question of why you can not boil coffee is very simple: too hot water enhances the aroma and taste of non-natural additives of the product.

Then is it possible to brew instant coffee in cold water? Let’s consider a scheme that will explain how to pour instant coffee correctly.

  1. Pour the contents of the bag into a cup.
  2. Add one tablespoon of cold water.
  3. Stir.
  4. Only then add hot water.

This way, the taste of the coffee is much better and softer.

How to brew ground coffee

If you don’t have a coffee maker or a turkey, you can brew ground coffee in a regular cup. It is better to preheat it by rinsing it with boiling water.

  1. Pour the ground coffee into a bowl.
  2. Pour hot water over it.
  3. Cover with a lid or a small dish.
  4. Leave it to infuse for a few minutes.

If you pour the ground coffee with boiling water and drink it immediately, you will feel that its taste deteriorates. It is better to let the aroma and flavor unfold by waiting a bit.

Experts recommend brewing coffee at 90 to 96 degrees Celsius.
