  1. The taste of a good coffee is subjective. It depends on your taste Alfonso. When it comes to coffee, there is a lot of debate over what makes a good cup. Some people swear by dark roasts, while others prefer lighter brews. Some people like their coffee with cream and sugar, and others prefer it black.
    Ultimately, the best coffee is the one that tastes good to you . If you’re unsure of what you like, it’s always best to start with a light roast and then work your way up to darker roasts. With so many different factors at play, it can be difficult to know if you’re getting good coffee or not. However, by keeping an open mind and tasting as many different coffees as possible, you’ll eventually find the perfect one for you.
    I love coffee with a sweet blend and aroma mixed in with vanilla, chocolate, and sometimes cinnamon. I also love iced coffee, especially in hot weather. But if I need to stay late and focused, my blend is a simple black coffee.
    While choosing a good coffee is subjective, there are a few things that all good coffee has in common.
    It should be fresh. Coffee beans start to lose their flavour as soon as they are roasted, so you should always buy from a reputable source that roasts its beans on-site.
    The water you use to brew your coffee should be filtered and at room temperature; cold water will make your coffee taste watered.
    Whichever taste you prefer, just make sure not to drink too much coffee. Drink only what your body can actually take. Cheers!

  2. Good coffee can taste like many, many things. The flavors you get will depend on the variety of coffee, how it was roasted, and how fresh it is. Some of the most common flavor notes in coffee are various berries, lemon, chocolate, raisins, wine, grass, nutty flavors, and smokiness. I have had coffee that tasted like strawberry juice! All of this can be expected from GOOD coffee. The crazy intense flavors are usually found in lightly roasted specialty coffee. As you roast the coffee darker, the coffee loses flavor complexity and gives way to more a more roasty, simple flavor.
    I define good coffee as quality beans, roasted with care, never roasted too dark, and fresh- no older than 2 weeks.

  3. That is very subjective. Coffee flavor vary greatly. What is good coffee to one person may not be good to another.
    Now, what is easier to define is this: What is bad coffee?
    Bad coffee is flavorless. You just don’t taste anything. It tastes just like water, with maybe some flavor from the paper filter.

  4. When you first started drinking coffee a good idea is to drink different types of coffee and mixtures with coffee so you can figure out what you prefer. I prefer no sugar no cream in my coffee, simply black and strong. But I may opt for blueberry, caramel or a coconut flavoring from time to time.
    Depending on what you’re looking for, you may also want to really begin to test different beans of fresh roasted coffee vs. instant.
    Not only do you have different mixtures for coffee, but you have different ways to prepare the coffee and different potential beans to use for coffee making.
    There is no perfect way, just try something out and see if you like it: smooth, strong, creamy, sweet or flavored. It’s all up to you!
