How to Customize Your Spring Coffee Drinks

  • Coffee strength: Adjust the coffee-to-water ratio to control the strength of your coffee. Use more coffee grounds for a stronger brew and fewer grounds for a milder taste.
  • Brewing Time: The brewing time can impact the flavor profile. If you want a bolder taste, extend the brewing time, but if you love a smoother cup, reduce the brewing time slightly. For cold brew, you can adjust the brewing time, i.e., a longer steeping time for a stronger brew and a shorter brewing time for a smooth brew.
  • Experiment with Roasts: Different coffee roasts, such as light roast, medium roast, and dark roast, offer varying flavors. So it is best to test out various roasts to find the one that suits your palate best.
  • Sweetness and Creaminess: Customize the sweetness and creaminess of your coffee by adjusting the amount of sugar, honey, or milk/cream you add.
