Coffee How To

We get a lot of ‘How to…’ questions from our readers. How to brew the best coffee at home, How to make Japanese shochu (alcoholic drink) from home? How to differentiate between mediocre and top-quality coffee? And so on. We are grateful for these questions, as these questions fuel the fire within our team to learn more about ‘how to’ in the world of coffee - sometimes we even experiment and try to test if a recipe or a method really works, before we answer these How to questions.

This is a section that is unmissable for any one who wants to have hands-on practical knowledge regarding coffee.
