The Perfect Cup

What makes the perfect cup of coffee?

Want a Perfect Cup?
Water is 98% of a coffee brew; therefore choose it well. Chemicals added for water treatment like chlorine should be extracted whenever possible.
Storing Your Coffee
Keep your beans away from moisture, heat and oxygen. Storing your coffee in a cool, dry place keeps it fresh. We at Silverback Coffee of Rwanda™ always keep our coffee in bean form and store it in an air tight canister, in a cool dark pantry away from direct sunlight and heat. Never freeze or refrigerate your coffee - doing so will cause your coffee to become stale and your coffee will lose its fresh flavor, and will quickly deteriorate.
The Right Grind
No matter how much coffee you're making, the goal should be a fresh grind to be brewed within four minutes. Coffee tastes best when ground just before brewing. Avoid mixing overly fine or overly coarse grinds. If this happens, check your blade for build up.
