I LOVE coffee! I personally drink it black, which I know is a little weird but if you are a coffee lover, no matter how you take it, these 4 tips from Buzzfeed will help you make the perfect cup! A few of them might also save you a few bucks, and help your waistline!
4 Tips For The Perfect Cup Of Coffee:
1. Let your coffee cool down for a few minutes before you drink it. A few different studies have found it tastes better that way. If it’s super hot, it tends to taste stronger, and a little more bitter.
2. If it still tastes bitter, add a pinch of salt. You can add it to the coffee grinds, or just sprinkle some in your cup after you brew it. Some people swear by it plus it can save calories, because you won’t need as much cream to cut the bitterness.
3. Save money by making your own flavored creamer! Just add a few drops of vanilla extract or hazelnut extract to some half-and-half. It should taste pretty close, and it’s a lot healthier. So many of those store-bought creamers have trans fats and a ton of sugar.
4. Make your own frothy milk in the microwave. Just pour some milk in a mason jar, shake it up, take the lid off and nuke it for about 30 seconds. Then, spoon it onto your coffee so it looks like a cappuccino.
If you have never tried a cup of coffee BLACK, I highly recommend it! AND if you can make that the way you drink you will see how much time you save at the coffee shop by just walking out after they hand it to you!
