The Beginner's Guide to Making Gourmet Coffee at Home – a simple, inexpensive guide to get you started.

how to make coffee

Making coffee isn't a subject that's taught in school. And for some reason the "experts" and manufacturers of coffee makers assume that everyone knows what to do.

Here at Coffee Detective, we know different.

So we have written a simple, 18-page guide to get you started.

Having this guide will be a lot easier than searching for answers to all your questions one at a time.

The first few pages tell you about coffee beans and how to grind them, plus some tips on choosing a coffee maker and making that first brew.

Then the guide moves on to a question and answer format. At Coffee Detective we get plenty of questions from beginners looking for reliable information.

So we have compiled and added the most useful "beginner" questions and answers as part of this guide.

You'll learn important basics, like...

  • How to choose a coffee maker and grinder
  • What proportion of coffee and water to use
  • What temperature the water should be
  • How long your coffee will last
  • How to store your coffee beans
  • And a lot more...

And here's the best part...
