There have been many studies about whether or not coffee is healthy or harmful. Some state that the caffeine in coffee can be harmful unless it is consumed in moderation. Other studies seem to indicate that coffee can work as an antioxidant, and can actually help prevent some diseases such as cancer.

 

For those who work at home, coffee can help you get out of the house. Many coffee houses have Wi-Fi, so you can take headphones and a laptop to a place away from home to work. Many restaurants do this too.

 

Once you open a bag of coffee beans, remove them from the original bag and transfer them to a container. The container should be airtight and able to keep out damaging light. This allows it to stay fresh longer.

 

While keeping coffee in the freezer can extend its shelf life, you shouldn't store it for longer than three months. Storing coffee in the freezer for any longer will decrease the quality of the coffee.

 

Before you make a whole pot, do a test run with your new coffee machine. Simply run water through the machine just like when you actually make coffee. That helps get rid of any dust that got into the machine while it was at the store on the shelf.

 

If you normally drink coffee at home but are getting tired of the same-old tastes, keep an eye open when you pass by coffee shops and houses. Coffee shops have new flavors and drinks they release and test out all the time, particularly seasonally. Summer's offerings happen frequently, and many even have "happy hour" discounts during deader hours of the day.

 

One way to keep coffee fresh is by buying whole bean coffee and only grinding as much as you plan on drinking at the time. Most coffee loses its flavor because people make more than they plan on drinking. Light, humidity, air, and oxygen can quickly decrease the flavor and aroma of your coffee by damaging its oils.

 

If you are buying coffee from a drive-in window, always error on the side of caution to stay as protected as possible. Typically, when you are buying coffee in this form, it will be piping hot, as you will not want to burn your hands or other areas of your body.

 

If you are making a cup of iced coffee, it is a good idea to use some hot coffee to melt the sugar before you start. This will stop the grains of sugar from lingering at the bottom of the cup. Each sip will taste just as sweet as the last.

 

Now are you excited? Get pumped, and go buy that gourmet blend you've been wanting to try. Experiment with different flavors, add some different ingredients to your coffee. Heck, even through it on some ice! Remember what you've read here as you jump out of bed tomorrow for that fresh cup of coffee.
