Brewing A Great Cup of Coffee

Whether you’re brewing a cup of your favorite blend of coffee, taking a little care when brewing will yield the very best cup of coffee possible. I’ve got a few tips that will make your morning coffee amazing!

  • The standard ratio for an automatic drip coffeemaker is one rounded tablespoon of ground coffee per 6 oz. of fresh, cold water. Yes, cold water makes a difference! Since we have rather hard water, I prefer to use filtered water whenever possible for a perfect cup.
  • Adjust the amount of coffee, instead of the amount of water, to obtain the desired strength — more for a stronger brew, less for a milder brew.
  • For best results, review your coffeemaker’s brewing instructions.

Now whip up a batch of these chocolate chip coffee muffins, relax and enjoy your perfect cup of coffee!
