Sex sells, coffee too.The best way to make and drink coffee

Updated on January 18, 2009

Around the world the production of coffee is more than 105 million bales of 60 KG

 

Drinking coffee is one of those things very little people don't do. All over the world people drink coffee in their own special way. And everyone makes their coffee at home in a way they like it the most. If you like drinking coffee, it's nice to know that there are many different kinds of coffee and different ways to make and drink your coffee.

I'm such a kind of person who wants to know, because of my coffee drinking habit or addiction. I usually drink more than 8 cups a day. Not those small ones. No I like to have big mugs of coffee. Most of the Europeans drink about 142 liters coffee a year per person. Not me. I'm more of a 300 liters kind of person. And I like more than one kind of coffee. Except decaf. That's like having sex without any passion. And I love to drink my coffee like I love sex. Hot, steamy, tasteful, strong and with variation and if possible every day.

But let’s get back to coffee.

Caffeine is the ingredient in coffee that makes us people more able to concentrate and being alert. One cup contains about 80 mg of caffeine. It has a stimulating effect on our central nerve system. That stimulating effect can become a problem when you drink coffee just before you go to bed, and it's hard to fall asleep (but then there is that other thing you could do). Some people are very sensitive for caffeine. For those people; don't drink coffee or when you like the taste, drink decaf.

The different kinds of coffee.

There are a lot of different kinds of coffee around the world. And thanks to trade it's possible to drink every blend at your own home.

Arabica, Robusta

Sidamo or Kouillou

Kenya,Costa Rica

Sumatra Lintung,Maragogype

Togo, Cappuccino

Espresso, Instant coffee.

Biologic Coffee (Grown without the use of weed killers or pesticides)

And many, many more. Al kinds of different tastes, Strong, full of taste, full of aroma. There is enough to choose from. If you only look at the right places. No, not a coffee shop. That's a different kind of place.

Making a tasteful cup of coffee could be very simple. If there weren't so many kinds to choose from and if you've found your favorite, there are many ways to make it and drink it.

The way you make coffee, also depends on the way the coffee bean is grinded. Rough grinded, fine grinded, (for an old fashion pot of coffee) espresso grinded (like the words says, for espresso), powder grinded (Turkish coffee)

The different ways to make your coffee

Oké the next step.

The Perculator.

Decennia ago this was a favorite way to make your coffee. Steam pushed water though a tube in the middle of this thing and were the coffee grind was. Coffee was getting boiled, which isn't very good for its taste. So don't use this if you love a good taste of coffee.

When water is around 95°C, the taste and aroma of the coffee is at his best.

Home coffee machine

Popular with the Dutch is this coffee machine. Water runs slowly through the Fine grinded beans which are in a paper filter. Up to 15 cups is easily made. Just enough for me in the morning.

Home Espressomachine

Espresso coffee is made under high pressure. Hot water gets pushed through the espresso grind.This machine can also be used to make a cappuccino.

Senseo

It's almost the same with the Senseo

Only the coffee grind is put in little closed filters, so it's easier to clean and easier to use.

The Cafetière

When you use rough grinded beans you can use the cafetière method

A glass in a metal or plastic holder contains a filter of fine metal. Coffee grind is put on the bottom of the glass, boiled water is added, just leave it standing for 2 minutes en slowly push the filter down. The grind then will stay separate from the coffee. But cleaning the glass isn't always fun.

And surely, at work, public places, and restaurants; those places mostly serve coffee from big machines with instant coffee or coffee extract. It's oké to drink, but I personally don't enjoy it as much as homemade coffee.

To be sure your coffee will taste great

Always use fresh water

Make sure your machine or pot is clean and there's no soap residue left from cleaning( Unless you want to start to foam when you're drinking your coffee)

Don't drink old coffee, not even when it's nice and warm. Just serve it when it's fresh, and hot.(Which reminds me again of..)

Don't boil the leftovers when it's cold like my grandmother always did.(Eeeuw)

But I like to drink it like the Turkish do; hot, sweet, strong and pure... It almost sounds like having...x

      I finally gave up coffee, only to take up espresso instead! I grind the beans and brew it in my little espresso machine 1 cup at a time. Fresh, hot and steaming...like my women. Drink enough of it, and I'm a human vibrator.

      Just saw that little blurb over the cool Turkish coffee picture: "Hot, sweet, strong and pure." Yep, it's VERY much like sex... when it's done right, that is... ;-)
