Learn How To Become A Barista In Your Own Kitchen

Coffee lovers unite!

How many cups of coffee did you make this morning? There are a few easy things you can do to make it taste even better. Ian Kolb from Cuplux joined us on QC Morning to give us 3 tips in making great coffee! We also met Karen and Rona, two Nigerian dwarf goats that Ian purchased to spread a little cheer in the NoDa neighborhood! Karen really enjoyed being on camera! 

Elevating Your Coffee At Home:

  • Use filtered water – Ian says if you really want to step up your game, get a gallon of distilled water and a couple of 3rd Wave Water packets. He said with the two combined, it really helps the taste of your coffee.
  • Use a scale, preferably one that can read 10th of a gram – Ian tells us the scale is all about consistency.
  • Use a Burr Grinder – Ian says this type of grinder will crush your coffee beans and help with a much more consistent grind.
