It’s so difficult to get up in the morning, especially with the drowsiness and desire to stay in bed a little bit more. But, it is undeniable that coffee is the only remedy for a hard morning. The smell, the taste, and the energy that you get from it — that’s a reason to thank every single individual who invented it and made it part of our lives. But, in order for you to enjoy your coffee, you need the most important tool: A coffee machine. And when it comes to coffee machines, Mr Coffee is the king.
If you’re already blessed with a Mr Coffee machine, then you probably already know about the wonderful things it does. But, there’s more to it than just a few buttons and a lid. The delightful aromas and flavors that come out of it are in part due to the mastery of the user when it comes to handling it. We’re here to take your Mr Coffee experience to the next level.
In order to create the best coffee experience possible with your Mr Coffee machine, you need to master a few techniques. Let’s take a look at the most important tips and tricks that you should use in order to perfect your cup.
1. Master the Grind
The grind is a fundamental factor when it comes to making coffee. If you use a too coarse grind, you’ll get a very watery cup of coffee, and if you use a too fine grind, you’ll get a very bitter cup of coffee. The most important thing to keep in mind is to adjust the grind according to your coffee machine. A Mr Coffee machine, for example, works best with medium grind.
2. Stick To Fresh Beans
The fresher the beans, the better the taste. Stale beans have a sour and harsh taste to them, which will ruin your coffee experience. Most people forget this, but the grind is not the only factor to take into consideration when making coffee. Instead of using old and stale beans, opt for freshly roasted or freshly ground ones.
3. Use Filtered Water
The last thing that you want in your cup is any kind of pollutants. Therefore, use only filtered water to make your coffee. The water should be pure and without any trace of impurities. This will ensure that you get the richest and most flavorful cup of coffee.
4. Pre- Brew
Pre-brewing is a technique used by many coffee professionals and enthusiasts. Basically, it means that you pre-soak your coffee grounds in water before you make the actual brew. This ensures that the grounds are completely saturated and that you get the best extraction possible.
5. Increase The Flow
By increasing the flow of the water, you’ll be able to extract more flavors from the grounds. This is because the water is now picking up more of the oils and aromas from the grounds. To do this, simply adjust the brewing time on your Mr Coffee machine or turn up the flow rate.
6. Pay Attention To Temperature
The temperature of the water used to make your coffee is a very important factor. Too high temperatures will result in a bitter cup of coffee and too low temperatures will result in a watery cup. Pay attention to the instructions of the Mr Coffee machine and adjust the temperature according to your preference.
7. Experiment With Ratios
The ratio of water to grounds is a crucial factor when it comes to creating a perfect cup of coffee. Depending on your preferences, you can use different ratios to get different flavors. Play around with the ratio until you find the one that works best for you.
Making coffee with a Mr Coffee machine is not as easy as it may seem. There are a few techniques that you need to master in order to get the perfect cup. But, once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to enjoy the wonderful aromas and flavors that come out of it. So, give it a try and become the master of your own Mr Coffee machine.
