Who knows how to make coffee can even say that there is no secret in preparation, but that’s not true. Who has never been the victim of a coffee practically inedible or took a coffee that earned a second round? And the issue may be far beyond the balance between water and dust. The quality of the beans, the kind of water, filter, and even the Add-ons can completely change the flavor of the drink.

So, on this day, 14 April, international day of Coffee, we seek tips with real experts on the subject who teach step by step how to prepare a good coffee. So, in addition to enjoy a delicious beverage, you still benefits from the antioxidants present in caffeine, which act in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, cancer, depression and even diabetes type 2.

Water Needs to Be Filtered

According to Beatrice Chauhan, Manager of the Café, voted one of the best coffees of São Paulo, the type of water  bottle used in the preparation of coffee is very important. The tap water, even after heated, can contain small solid particles that may alter the flavor of the drink. “Therefore, prefer bottled water or filtered water,” recommends. If the coffee machine still offer internal filter, better yet.

Beans Must Be Ground in Time

“So the coffee aroma and taste better, the ideal is to have a domestic mill to grind the beans before the preparation,” Suchi Junqueira, Coordinator of the aim Center of Preparation of coffee (CPC) of Sindicafé, in São Paulo. The powder suffers more influence of air, moisture, heat and even contact other odors, which causes miss your quality. To conserve what’s left, put the powder or grain package tightly closed inside a dark plastic pot to avoid contact with the light, keep it in a dry and cool in the refrigerator. Finally, do not mix the contents of a package you just opened with one that was already open. “The mixture does not omit the flavor of the open product and makes the coffee again,” he explains.

Good Coffee Is Taken Pure

A quality coffee does not need to be sweetened. Sugar or sweetener only serve to mask the taste and the properties of the drink. “If the person make sure to use one of the two, however, which gives more flavor is the sugar,” says nutritionist Amanda Edet, the integrated Center for Nutritional Therapy (Citen), in São Paulo. The sweetener, according to her, must be the first option for those who need to control the candy intake or calories, as suffering from diabetes. The only problem of the sweetener is the fact of being able to leave a residual taste drink you don’t usually please most palates. If, nevertheless, the preference is for the addition of sugar or sweetener, add the Add-ons in the Cup. When preparing coffee already sweetened, there is formation of a caramel around the container which causes the coffee rust and lose the flavor more quickly.

Hit Ratio

According to the Manager, for a normal espresso or short, it is recommended to use 50 or 30 ml of water and 7 g of coffee. “For coffee powder with filter paper, I suggest five to six tablespoons of coffee for each liter of water,” he says. She warns that the water reaches the boiling point and, in this second case, are wet the edges of the filter first and then the Center without aid of spoon. The nutritionist Amanda, for your time, warns that it is not enough to observe only the proportion. “It is also essential to consume the drink in moderation, especially those who prefer a stronger coffee,” he says. Use it to increase the attention State

Espresso, especially, loses your taste soon after preparation. The filter lasts a little longer if preserved in a thermos. The nutritionist Amanda points, however, points out that there is no risk in taking it after some time of preparation or made with boiling water. “It maintains its nutrients, despite losing in flavor,” he says.
