The Five Rules of Coffee: Rule 4

Posted by on 27 Jan 2007 | Tagged as: coffee

never boil coffee.
coffee is best served just below the boiling point (about 195°). you can go slightly cooler if you prefer, but don’t go any hotter. boiled coffee just doesn’t taste right–and is chemically altered when it’s boiled!
And a bonus rule, say, 4.a: never microwave coffee.

    Okay… so I’m not going to microwave the COFFEE….

    but is it okay to microwave the city water in a cup so that I can stir some Folgers in it?

    @Adam: As an admitted coffee snob, if that was a reference to instant so-called coffee, I am done talking to you. :)
