We caught up with Mohammad to find out how to make the perfect cup of coffee at home.
1) Your coffee beans should be high quality arabica beans
2) The beans should be freshly roasted (hopefully no longer than 3 to 4 weeks ago). You can also store your roasted coffee beans in the freezer, in which case they stay fresher for much longer
3) Ensure you grind your coffee according to your coffee maker e.g. for filter coffee a finer grind can help you get the right flavour. Cafetieres, stove top or bialetti are more suitable for a more medium-fine grind. For espresso machines, a very fine grind is recommended
4) Grind your coffee just before you make it – if you are making just one cup of coffee, just grind enough for the one cup. This helps your coffee stay fresh and avoid wastage
5) Store your roasted coffee beans in an air-tight container, preferably in a cool, dry location to maximize the longevity of freshness
6) Stock up on beans!
