Simple Coffee Hacks to Start Your Day
If you're a coffee drinker, here are some simple hacks from Buzzfeed to help you enjoy your morning cup of Joe even more.
- Stop keeping your beans in the freezer - I know a lot of people that do this, but apparently this only does one thing. It keeps the beans cold, that's it. You should keep the beans in an air tight container, away from heat and sunlight.
- Reduce bitterness with a pinch of salt - Back when I did drink coffee, I used to like the bitterness. I took my coffee black. Nothing in it. But I understand most people don't like that. If you're looking to reduce the bitterness, just add a pinch of salt.
- Make ice cubes out of coffee, not water - If you're looking to enjoy an iced coffee, but don't want it watered down with, well, water. Make ice cubes out of coffee to keep your java cold.
- Invest in a good travel mug - I might not drink coffee, but I do drink tea every morning. And it seems like there's no middle ground when it comes to the temperature. It's scorching hot, and then ice cold. Which is why I bought a good travel mug. It keeps it hot (but not too hot) for a longer period of time, so I don't feel like I have to rush to drink it.
