Congratulations and Thank You!
Thank you for making the time to take my quiz, “Which of These 5 Coffee Brewing Mistakes are YOU Making?”
My name is Joseph Robertson,
I own and publish Extracted Magazine, which is all about the craft of coffee. I am on a mission to see 1 million people enjoy the craft of coffee as much as I do, so we can transform the world and the people who make coffee possible.
I created this quiz to help you jumpstart your journey with the craft of coffee.
So let's get to your results!
Which of These 5 Coffee Brewing Mistakes are YOU Making?
Based on the information you’ve shared and the little I know about you and your situation, the one major mistake you are making …
Is to give up on what’s known as “vibrancy” by NOT grinding as close (in time) to your brew as possible.
Now, here’s what that means …
You are probably aware that the freshness of your coffee is important. The best tasting coffees are enjoyed within 2-3 weeks of being roasted.
The same phenomenon which causes roasted coffee to loose taste after that time period happens when you grind the coffee ….
But it happens at a MUCH faster rate.
Within even 10 minutes of grinding your coffee, the taste of the brew will start to change, and in some cases can change for the worse, and fast.
The answer is simple.
Grind your coffee moments before you brew, for the best most vibrant taste of that coffee.
Sounds easy doesn't it?
Just grind your coffee right before you brew!
Well, this is just ONE of the core fundamentals of brewing great coffee at home.
Grinding your coffee fresh IS one of the major parts of getting into the exploration of great tasting coffee, and you MUST take this step,
But there’s so much more.
Even when you master all the core fundamentals of brewing great coffee at home, there’s an entire world of coffee exploration and experience to discover and enjoy.
Let me explain what I mean by that …
I used to think coffee itself wasn’t all that delicious.
I preferred to add milk and sugar, otherwise it just tasted like bitter black water.
When I decided to get into brewed coffee, I struggled to figure out how to get a ‘good brew’ out of the auto drip machine at the office.
But when I got into exploring the craft of coffee and brewing a lot at home,
I became OBSESSED with my coffee grind.
I got myself a little hand grinder, and did all sorts of tests about how to grind coffee best and when.
I was riveted by the incredible level of vibrancy which freshly roasted, freshly ground coffee can reveal.
Great fresh coffee can taste like sweet lemons, rhubarb pie, fresh picked wild blueberries, fig newtons, brandy.
Coffee can really taste exactly like these things! I’ve experienced them all!
BUT it takes a lot more than just grinding your coffee right before you brew, to really get into the rich juicy vibrant flavors that all the unique coffees have to offer.
Everything else I’ve learned about coffee?
I did NOT just naturally figure that out.
I got lucky to discover someone who showed me coffee’s most delicious secrets. (I share this part of my story by email – tap here to subscribe if you’d like to learn more)
When I finally learned what coffee can actually taste like I practically shouted “WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THIS BEFORE?”
I spent YEARS thinking coffee on it’s own didn’t taste good,
Only to find out that it’s one of the most delicious, inspiring things you can enjoy in life.
Because it took me so long to figure out the mysteries of coffee,
Because I spent so much of my life NOT enjoying one of our most precious riches,
I’ve decided to do for you what that one chance encounter did for me.
And give you the opportunity to take this path, to learn everything there is to learn about not just brewing great coffee,
But also …
– finding it
– exploring it
– appreciating it
– and sharing it with everyone else as well.
