The smell of fresh-made coffee is one of the world's greatest inventions.
Whether your mornings are fast or groggy, you can’t deny the interruption of that slight hint of rich caramelized aroma of fresh morning coffee in the air. The calming sweet inhale first thing in the morning can jolt our senses to wake up without even taking a sip.
Many people can’t imagine starting their day without a warm morning cup of coffee and I can’t blame them. It’s even beneficial to our health.
According to Harvard’s School of Public Health, "studies have linked coffee to a range of health benefits, including lowered risk of type 2 diabetes and some cancers. This association is likely due to anti-inflammatories and antioxidants found in both caffeinated and decaffeinated brews."
But coffee is nothing more than coffee beans and water so what ways can you improve your morning cup?
Besides selecting your preferred coffee beans and ensuring consistent grounds of coffee, there are several methods to brewing a cup of coffee — from hand drip / pour-over style, slow brew drip machines to french press to espresso makers like the coffee on the go method of the handpresso,
It’s more than just a drink, it’s creating a better coffee making experience so we can start our day just the way we like it.
3 Ways to Improve Your Morning Coffee Making Experience
Hand Drip / Pour-Over Style
The hand drip coffee will have you enjoying the process.
“The ritual of the pour over is like a meditation: There’s no machine in your way, no flashing green lights, no electric power cords. Just you and a few simple tools. The final cup is reminiscent of one from a drip coffeemaker, but noticeably more delicate and complex. Observe the bloom, experience the first trace of coffee-drunk steam, notice how the spiral of the pour alters the final cup. This simple experience gets you in tune with your coffee.”

But first, what is Espresso?
“Simply put, espresso is a brew method. After World War II, espresso became Italy’s national drink because the extraction method made decent coffee from low-quality beans. The machine’s pressurized environment turned blends of Robusta and Arabica into a thick, concentrated coffee.
The label “espresso” that you see attached to a bag of coffee beans is the roaster’s recommendation, an indication that the coffee has been blended and roasted to best fit the espresso brew method.”

Change the coffee experience with a French Press styled drink.
“French press coffee is dense and heavy, yet it has its own sort of elegance. As with any method, the devil is in the details: To achieve a full expression of the coffee, decant it immediately after brewing so it doesn’t become bitter or chalky. Then, sink into this rich and heady cup. It only takes four minutes to brew.”
