Coffee is grown all over the world in countries near the equator and each region has it’s own characteristics.

If you’re a newbie barista or an experienced one looking to enhance your coffee making or simply coffee have been your first love, here are some of the best tips to become a pro in brewing coffee like a barista!

It’s easy to spend thousands of dollars on coffee equipment. There are home espresso machines that cost thousands of dollars themselves. However, you don’t need to be a big spender to brew good coffee at home. To start with, all you’ll need is a coffee grinder and a French Press.

1. Grind It To Perfection:

Grinding the coffee to perfection is the base of preparing a tasteful coffee. Before starting to grind the beans, know your machine well. Adjust the grinder blades according to the texture of the coffee required. Make a small trial and error to hit the right sweet spot for the different coffee beans.

2. Tamp It Well:

Tamping your coffee can be a real task as a slight difference in the pressure can result in an unpalatable cup of coffee. The best approach to receive the high-quality result is to tamp with light pressure to compact the ground coffee.

3. Froth The Milk Precisely:

Milk can add wonders to your cup of coffee. Properly prepared milk can improve the overall taste and texture by adding more value to the drink. Different coffees require different form and texture from the milk.

Pro Tip To Pick The Right Coffee Beans

There are the high-quality Arabica and the lower quality one that usually comes in giant plastic tubs, Robusta. Don't pick the Robusta. Arabica is more expensive because it’s difficult to grow, it’s picked by hand, but it’s worth it. It has a very smooth taste and more flavors.
