Take the advice here with you when it comes time to drink coffee. http://careernews.tbo.com/stories/374345-Charter_School_Asso... , https://www.facebook.com/pages/Charter-School-Associates/110 046515682711 , http://www.summervillecharterschool.com/csa.html

A Keruig coffee maker is a great choice if you just like to drink one cup at a time. You will be able to brew one cup of coffee at a time. You will also have plenty of different flavors to pick from. Take a good look, because each of the Keruig makers offers different settings to suit your individual wants.

Use Stevia if you don't like using sugar or if you are dieting. This product is naturally derived from plants and is a great artificial sweetener. You can find it at any health food store or at a grocery store.

Do you plan to serve coffee to visitors? A beautifully topped latte, hand done by you, is sure to do the trick. With a little bit of practice, you will be able to produce pretty patterns and designs to give your coffee that special touch. It is best to practice with melted chocolate mixed with milk, after a while you will be making neat designs like a pro.

Be careful about the type of water you utilize when preparing your coffee. Using bad water will lead to a poor pot of coffee. Make sure there is a mineral count in the water as well. If you do not do this your coffee will come out tasting very bitter.

If your coffee machine is a bit outdated, this trick will more than make up for it. Before you start to brew coffee, simply brew a whole pot of water. Once the hot water is ready, put the coffee grounds in and return the water to the coffee machine. This method guarantees that the coffee you serve will be piping hot and taste great.

The taste of your coffee is dependent of the origin of the beans. It is smart to sample multiple coffees and blends rather than sticking with a single coffee type. Do not let cost factor into your choice too often. A more pricey blend might give you enough energy that you drink fewer cups than a not so strong brand would do.

In order to get the best possible brew, pure, clean water is key. While it may come as a surprise, the type of water used can make either a good or bad cup of coffee. Use bottled water or filtered water for the best results.

Avoid storing your coffee near the oven. Heat can stifle the quality of your coffee beans. Any place in the kitchen near the oven, even the cupboard near it or the counter tops that are close by, should be off limits.

Good water is critical. Remember that everything you put in your brew will affect its final taste. For this reason, using quality water can make a big difference.

There are many wonderful alternatives to ordinary sugar that you can use to liven up your coffee. One thing to try is the nectar of agave, which does have sugar but does not affect you in the same way. Low calories sweeteners like Splenda or Stevia are great in hot drinks and can be used safely in coffee.
