Q&A: How do people from around the world prefer to drink their coffee?

Question by Kickapoo: How do people from around the world prefer to drink their coffee?
My coffee is always sour or bitter or never sweet enough. I heard France drinks their coffee very black and strong and I learned Italy drinks the cappuccino in the afternoon and no earlier. Why is my coffee so gross?

Best answer:

Answer by Alinka
1) Depends on the kind that you buy.
2) Depends how much coffee you use, put more, it’ll be stronger, less, it wont be as strong, can be just colored water.
3) Also, depends on how you brew it.
Every country has it’s own way of making coffee, but it’s not only country, almost every family has their own coffee traditions.

What is the best Method for Brewing Coffee in the world?

Question by Sam: What is the best Method for Brewing Coffee in the world?
I need to know the best coffee brewing method. Step by step clear details would be really appreciated. Thanks guys.

Best answer:

Answer by Samantha
Use a French Press. There are tons of styles and sizes. You can get them anywhere: Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, etc. You put the ground coffee in the bottom (I put in like 1 scoop I think. I think it comes with the press, but I’m not sure) and then add water (just before boiling point). Let it sit for a couple minutes (the longer it sits, the stronger it will be) and then put the lid on, and push the plunger down to keep the grounds on the bottom so they wont pour into your cup.

Best Coffee Beans in the World

Article by David H. Urmann

Finding the best coffee beans in the world can be a very difficult task, with the various types of coffee beans available in the market. Some of the noted coffee beans include Arabica, Colombian Medellin and Sumatra among others.

There are different types of coffee beans. Due to the influx of its varieties, the reviews and suggestions from consumers have become helpful. Regardless of these feedbacks however, it is important to note that taste is a matter of individual preference.

There are those who prefer the stronger drinks, others the flavored ones. There are also those who prefer their coffee hot while others prefer it cold or chilled. There is sure to have one distinct taste of coffee that will delight your taste buds and match your personality. Along the shores of the beautiful Lake Victoria within Rift Valley in Kenya, coffee farmers nurture the best coffee beans producing coffee trees in the world. Graded as AA, these finest beans are usually sold during weekly auctions by Kenya’s esteemed Coffee Board.

It is noted that one factor why coffee plants produce the best coffee beans is due to the regional climate. This results to the distinctive and aromatic flavor seen in coffee cherries. If you want gourmet coffee, it is best to purchase Arabica coffee.

The edible beans of Arabica are reported to have the best aroma and most spirit. Robusta, on the other hand, offers an Earthier olfactory taste. It has fewer flavors because it possesses more caffeine content. As compared to other types, Arabica coffee has superior flavor, being more aromatic and richer. These plants actually grow finest along higher altitude places. They cannot grow and survive within low temperatures or frost. This makes Arabica beans harder to grow, requiring a lot of attention and care. It generally grows in very high altitudes such as 3,000 feet.

The Colombian Medellin coffee is another type which is slightly acidic, richer and full bodied. Others note it as syrupy and sweet. Competing countries for the supply of quality coffee in the international market are Brazil, Colombia, Uganda and Mexico. Although Colombia produces about 15%, Brazil takes over 20% of the worldwide production.

Moreover, a perfect blend of coffee from Indonesia, South and Central America are proven to be irresistible also. When it is medium roasted, the beans bring out a “nutty” sweetness. This is due to the fact that roasting makes the green beans lose its moisture, and it expands at 200oC. This will result to chemical reactions like color change and caramelization. The longer these coffee beans are roasted, the more oils are being extracted, and producing a bigger body.

With the roasting process, these coffee beans haul out their vibrant flavors. This happens as its fat and carbohydrate content gets transformed into aromatic oils.

The Sumatra coffee is another variant famous for its strong taste. It is suggested to drink this in small servings only.

Finding the best coffee doesn’t mean that you need to taste every type of coffee bean you come across with. Choosing the best coffee bean is not measured by the number of people who have found it appealing. Choosing the best coffee bean is dependent on your preference and taste.

It is a good idea to look out for highly recommended products and those which have won awards for their flavour.

Kenya is well-known for their coffee and there are many instant granules available on the shelves of supermarkets. Buy the roasted beans to taste the flavours at their best.

The dark tones and rich flavour is luxurious and they are often awarded for their excellent blends.
