A Few Things You Must Know About Gourmet Coffee
by: Dickson Yan

Everyone loves gourmet coffee. If you are a coffee lover, chances are you love gourmet coffee. Even if you do not drink it regularly for some reason, you probably love the taste more than anything in the world, and rightfully so. Here are a few tips you can use to find and consume that perfect gourmet coffee.

The first order of business is to sort out what types of flavors are available when you talk about gourmet coffee. The following list, while not exhaustive, covers most of the offerings:

Vanilla nut
Cinnamon hazelnut
Pumpkin spice
Chocolate raspberry
Vanilla Almond
Chocolate Almond
Chocolate Mint
Chocolate cherry
Plain Old Chocolate
Chocolate marshmallow
Chocolate Irish cream
Cherry bomb
Cherry cobbler
Butter cream
Butter scotch cream

The secret to a good full bodied gourmet coffee is starting with a solid base. Colombian Supremo is one of the more popular choices. The flavors are then carefully selected and added without any sugar or harsh chemicals. Because of the pureness of these flavors, the flavors and body of the coffee are full and plentiful. For the kid inside of you, you can mix and match flavors as well.

The key to creating a masterful gourmet is choosing and taking the time to prepare the coffee correctly. There is nothing worse than an expensive, rushed gourmet coffee. Pay particularly close attention to the condition of your coffee pot: even the smallest amount of residue can alter the taste for the worse. It is vitally important to keep the pot clean and ready for the next round of flavorful coffee.

Secondly, you want to be sure you are using a water that will complement the pure taste of the coffee. Using cold and filtered water will ensure the minerals often found in common tap water will not taint your final product.

Lastly, always start with a whole bean and ground from there. Part of the experience of a gourmet coffee is the aroma, and a large part of the aroma (and flavor) are lost in the first hour or so after the coffee is ground. Stick to these tips and you’ll find yourself enjoying gourmet coffee like you never knew you could.
