It is easy to admit that Ugandan Gold Coffee is naturally good for a multitude of reasons. But what else can be done to bring out all the delicious flavors? We did a little research on the National Coffee Association (NCA) website and compiled a list of ways to make your morning pot of coffee even better:
- Buy it fresh
According to the National Coffee Association, it is extremely important to buy the coffee as fresh as possible, much like all the other produce you may buy in a grocery store. The ideal time span coffee stays fresh is one to two weeks – tops. The NCA suggests purchasing smaller bags that way you are not using one huge bag for several weeks. You can restock anytime with Ugandan Gold Coffee if it is your coffee of choice 🙂
- Do not reuse
For once we are encouraging you not to recycle. At least not right away. The NCA specifically notes how reusing coffee grounds removes the flavor. In fact, the more times you put the grounds through the brewing process, the more bitter it becomes. This concept goes hand in hand with the freshness – fresher grounds give you better coffee. If you do wish to recycle your grounds instead of throwing them in the garbage, you can read up on the NCA’s suggested article about how to do it here.
- Surprisingly, water
The kind of water you use to brew your coffee can affect the taste, obviously. Highly chlorinated water detracts from the flavor of our Sipi Falls coffee. The amount of water you use is just as influential to the taste as the water itself. The NCA urges the “Golden Ratio”. In simple terms, for every 6 ounces of water you use, dump 2 tablespoons of ground coffee into the coffee maker. Of course, this is simply the NCA’s opinion; adding more water or coffee will change the strength of the flavor, so change it to your preference.
- The little ole bean
It should be no surprise that the bean, the main ingredient, is a factor in taste. The lines are blurred as to what is the “best” bean to pair with a certain type of roasting. It is all based on your preference! If you are curious, you can read all the details, but to save you from the long paragraphs, Ugandan Gold Coffee’s beans are 100% natural and offers a wide variety of options. We encourage you to do research on what level of roasting you enjoy and where your beans come from – it can mean all the difference! You can also check out what we have after glancing at the NCA’s
