4 simple tips to make the best coffee at home


Although the barista may be busy in the café, he always weighs each batch of coffee carefully. The dose of coffee will greatly affect the final taste. A cup of coffee, due to the coffee dose, may be too weak or too strong.

If you have a coffee machine that grinds its own coffee, you're out of trouble. However, if you own a lever coffee machine, you need to weigh your coffee carefully. You can measure the coffee using a measuring cup, but it's not always completely accurate. We recommend that you weigh your coffee on a conventional scale.

The amount of ground coffee is the most important factor in making the perfect espresso. Use 8 - 10 grams of ground coffeefor one espresso . Once you have tested thecoffee, adjust the dosage according to your preference.


Espresso consists of two main ingredients - coffee and water. And one of them is very neglected. Yes, that's right, it's water. The main reason to care more about filtered water is the final taste of the coffee and the life of the machine. Itreally isa crucial ingredient as it can ruin your entire coffee enjoyment .

This is because water contains chemicals that can cause unpleasant odours and a very bad aftertaste in drinks. An example is chlorine, which is added to the water in water purification plants because it disinfects the water and gets rid of all disease-causing agents.

The easiest thing you can do for yourself and your coffee machine is to get a filter kettle. The kettle comes with an electronic filter change indicator to remind you when it's time to change the filter cartridge. With a filter kettle, you will remove harmful substances from your water such as heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc and copper) and other undesirable factors such as limescale and chlorine that impair the taste of water.


There's a lot of debate in the coffee world about how to heat a cup properly, whether to heat it at all, and what impact it has on the resulting taste of the coffee.

Generally, preheating your cups creates the perfect conditions for delicious coffee. Thetemperature of your espresso greatly affects its flavor profile, and a perfect shot of espresso can be ruined by a cold cup. It's also one of the reasons why people drink their espresso almost immediately.


  1. Store your espresso cups on top of the machine, which is specifically designed for warming and storing cups.
  2. You pour hot water into your cup and then pour it back out after a minute. Personally, I like this method because it creates a perfectly warm spot for the espresso while not heating up the edges of the cup which I can subsequently burn my lips on.


Using pre-ground coffee is like leaving unwrapped bread sitting on the kitchen counter overnight and expecting it to be beautifully crusty in the morning. Hardly. Once ground, coffee loses its original aroma and flavor by the second. The resulting coffee may then taste, well, bland.

The coarseness of the grind also plays a big role in espresso preparation. If you grind the coffee too finely, the espresso will be over-extracted and the coffee will burn completely and taste bitter and bitter. Conversely, if you grind the coffee too coarsely, the espresso will be under-extracted. This means that the resulting espresso will have only a faint crema on the surface and will taste unpleasantly sour and empty.
