Making Good Coffee

Virtually anybody can make a cup of coffee but making good coffee is something else entirely. A spoonful of coffee granules from a jar and some hot water will make a cup of coffee depending on what your own definition is of a good cup. The next step up from there is to pour hot water over coffee grounds, and then collect the resulting infusion in a pot. However, if you want a great cup of coffee, you need to start with a quality blend of roasted coffee bean. Preferably, the coffee beans should be ground just prior to using them. Even the water used can make a huge difference between an average cup and the perfect brew.
