Hot To Make Your Coffee To Be Special

Utilize your popcorn maker

You know how everyone has a popcorn maker, right? K. Well anyway, if you do happen to have one, try using it to roast your own coffee beans. They work in a very similar fashion to coffee roasters and once you get the hang of it, you’ll find that your coffee game goes up tenfold. Roasting and then grinding your own beans is the peak of homemade coffee.

Turn your coffee into a popsicle

Are you a fan of iced coffee? Well, you might want to try this little coffee hack. Combine your coffee with a 1:1 ratio of cream, chill, place into popsicle moulds, freeze, and enjoy.

Coffee Cubes

If you’re a fan of iced coffee but dislike watering down your drink with regular ice cubes, just freeze up some coffee and use those bad boys instead.

Faux Espresso

Not everyone has access to an espresso machine, but a lot of people have a French Press. If you don’t have either, but you constantly crave an espresso, you can get your hands on a French Press but less than 20 bucks. Grind some espresso beans and put them in your press with just enough water to submerge them, let them rest for a few minutes, and plunge. This will give you a nice faux espresso shot that you can drink on its own, or turn into a latte or other drink of your choice.


Again, if you don’t have an espresso machine that comes equipped with a frother, your French Press will do just fine. Pour some hot milk into the press, vigorously froth with the press for 30 seconds, and you’ll have some perfectly respectable frothed milk.


If you want to bring out some more flavour in your coffee, adding a pinch of salt will do just that. This was a popular option during the great depression when most households had ‘bad coffee.’ Imagine what it’d do to ‘good’ coffee?

Experiment with flavours

If you’re making pour-over coffee, try adding some spices like cinnamon and nutmeg to your grounds before brewing to infuse the coffee.

Feed your garden

Coffee grounds are rich in nutrients like potassium and nitrogen. Adding coffee grounds to highly acidic plants such as tomatoes can provide you with a larger yield. Root vegetables like beets and carrots also like coffee grounds.

Store properly

While keeping your coffee in the freezer does indeed keep them cold, it does not keep them fresh. Your best bet when it comes to storing coffee is to keep them in airtight jars. Keep these jars away from heat, and your coffee will be that much fresher.

Flavour your own creamer

If you don’t feel like consuming the flavoured creamers you find at the store, which aren’t very good for you to begin with, you can always make your own. Simply add a few drops of vanilla extract, almond extract, or whatever extract you desire into some cream or milk, and then add it to your coffee.

Reheat slowly

Reheated coffee is never going to be as good as fresh coffee, but if you are going to reheat it, do it at a low and slow temp. This will give you the best tasting coffee you can get.

Warm the mug

IF you really want to do it right at home, rinse your mug with hot water before pouring your coffee into it so as to ensure that the coffee temp is never compromised by a cold mug.
