The Perfect Cup of Coffee

Ever stop to think that it’s always beverage time, always beverage weather? Morning, noon, night, and the hours in between; summer, winter; surrounded by family, entertaining friends, or relaxing along. You can be as festive, as ceremonial, as casual as you please with beverages. Here is my favorite beverage – coffee.

Coffee’s not only the key to a pleasant way to start the day or end it, not only a quick, gratifying pick-me-up on a busy morning or a warm greeting when friends meet-in short, it’s not only a marvelous beverage but a fascinating flavor, unlike any other flavor in the world.

What’s the key to a really satisfying cup of coffee, one that’s full-bodied and just plain good? The secret of perfect coffee, no matter which method you use, is as simple as this: Fresh coffee, exactly measured and ground just before brewing; fresh water; a thoroughly clean coffee maker; immediate service.

Here are a few tips to remember when you make your cup of coffee:
