There's lots of mystery and myth surrounding the art of coffee. But in the end, there are 5 parts to get right:
1 Choosing a roast - from light to dark, find a roast that brings out the flavours you like.
2 Determining grind - you need the right grind size for your brew method to get proper extraction.
3 Water temperature - the correct temperature allows the grinds to awaken and reveal their flavour.
4 Optimal brew time - allow the right brewing time so it's not under or over extracted.
5 The brewing ratio - remember to check the correct ratio of coffee to water for a great cup.
