How to Make Coffee:
- Begin with freshly roasted coffee beans.
- Grind the beans right before brewing.
- Use filtered water.
- Ideally use a French press, although you’ll get a good cup of coffee from a drip maker too.
- Use approximately 1 rounded tablespoon of coffee per 8 oz. of water, to your taste.
