Coffee !

I've been all over these forums & can't find the 'right forum', so mybe i'll find an answer on the front porch ?  Smiley Very Happy

I have 2 cans of 'cheapie' coffee ; tried mixing them so they would be more flavorful, but not-so-much did it work. Might buy a more spendy brand & mix them, but in meantime, anyone have any ideas on how to make these cheap brands taste better ?

Thanks !

Dear Lifehacker, 
I'm ready to take the plunge into making better coffee, and I've got all my gear picked out—but where can I actually buy the beans? Do I just get them at the grocery store, or is there something better I should get? Is there any way to try out different coffee before I buy a ton?

My one piece of advice is to buy better brands on sale! Local roasters are a good place to explore as they have to be good or they will not last very long. I hope you find you good to the last drop coffee!FB_IMG_1549853350779.jpg

Dear Best Part of Waking Up, 
You're absolutely right, great coffee starts with the beans. Don't get us wrong, brewing method is important. That's why we've talked about how to brew the perfect cup, how to make the most of a drip maker, shown you awesome coffee makers beyond drip, talked about how to make great coffee on the cheap, and even the best way to make your coffee portable. Still, the key to a good cup starts with the beans you take home with you.

I can't function if I don't start my day with coffee.  No matter what time I wake up.  First thing I have to do is brew my coffee and have my homemade breakfast.  I love the smell of coffee and each morning the smell and the feeling takes me back to my youth being at home with my parents and always waking up to the amazing scent of coffee being brewed followed by the scents of breakfast cooking, baking, or whatever method used for that particular daily breakfast my amazing mother chose to use.  Hmmmm.....love the memories......happy happy happy times.,,
