Get Inspired by Trying Different Types of American Brand Coffee! We can get into the same humdrum routine every day. We make coffee in the morning to provide a burst of energy, drink coffee during our breaks, and then head home. The next day is pretty much the same. Most people enjoy drinking coffee, but it’s also used to wake up the mind and body too. Have you ever considered trying different types of coffee, instead of the boring stuff you buy in a tin?
Specialty coffee usually comes in a bag, rather than a canister. This coffee is ground, though you can certainly purchase coffee beans and grind them yourself. You can purchase your gourmet coffee online, and have it shipped directly to your door.
If you have no idea where to begin your coffee adventure, start with some of these suggestions. Caribou coffee offers a Caribou blend in a 12 ounce bag. If you have a Keurig coffee maker you can also buy Caribou in K-Cups. There is also Death Wish coffee, which is some of the strongest on the market today.
When choosing your coffee,you can select the type of roast, such as light, medium, or dark roast. Coffee beans are actually roasted, for a specific length of time. This may offer a bitter or burnt type of taste. Some people love it, some prefer a lighter roast.
To keep your coffee lasting a long time, keep it in the original bag, but place it in an airtight container with lid. Store it away from the stove/oven in the kitchen, and away from humid regions such as the sink. The best spot is in the back of a cool cupboard, rather than in direct light. Since you’re going to be enjoying new types of coffee, you’ll want to protect your investment.
When selecting coffee you’ll see offers for coarse grind, medium, and fine. A fine ground will give you a stronger coffee, such as is suitable for espresso. A medium grind is perfect for the electric coffee maker. A coarse grind works best for the French press.
You can also get your caffeine fix from a chocolate bar. The Mokaccino Tcho bar will provide you with that extra burst of energy, plus you gain the soothing natural chemicals from the cocoa bean. It’s like eating your coffee. Some people even choose to eat chocolate covered coffee beans.
Many people have concerns about the products they consume. There are many coffee brands that are certified USDA organic. This ensures that only safe and natural pesticides have been used on the plants. Coffee may also be certified Kosher, and Fair Trade. Fair trade certification ensures that no slave or child labor was used to grow and harvest the coffee beans. You’ll be pleased to see these certifications, which will conform to your values and ethics.
There’s a lot to learn about coffee. The book “The Blue Bottle Craft of Coffee: Growing, Roasting, and Drinking, with Recipes” by James Freeman, is essential reading, and makes a great gift for coffee enthusiasts.
Inspire yourself by learning more about the coffee your drink, and trying new types and blends.
