Do not pour out leftover coffee. Don’t try warming it up again either. Using a container that is airtight, store unused coffee in the fridge. This can become your delicious stash of iced coffee which you can drink later. A common error that is often made is an incorrect ratio of water and coffee. It is important that you don’t overdo it with the water, resulting in a weak tasting cup of coffee. The correct amount is two tablespoons of grounds for each cup of coffee.
If you’ve got a little extra coffee, freeze it using ice cube trays. Use these types of cubes in your coffee to keep it from getting watered down when the ices starts melting. They are also great for cocktails and for cooling piping hot coffee. Grind your own coffee beans. Coffee made from freshly-ground beans has the best flavor. Burr mill grinders usually make the best coffee grounds. Your cup of joe will taste best if your grounds have a consistent size.
