I know not everyone likes coffee, but a lot of people do, and I am one of them (but I like it with creamer and sugar, not black). Anyway, the HuffingtonPost provided a public service on how to make a good cup of coffee. I actually already follow most of the guidelines in the article.
I always get this one right: 3 .) Ignoring the magic ratio.
For the best cup of coffee, every time, the perfect ration is 2
tablespoons of coffee to 6 oz. of water. Of course, if you like it a
little stronger you can add more coffee -- and vice versa. Just try to
stay as close to the optimum ratio as possible.
