The Fall Shop
Savor the season and set the scene for gratitude this Thanksgiving. Welcome the opportunity to hit the pause button and bring yourself back to balance. Whether your bubble is 2 or 10, set the table with elegant décor and tableware that gives your home a warm autumn glow.
STORE IT RIGHT Whether you buy ground coffee or beans to grind at home, avoid storing them in clear containers. Instead, keep them in an airtight opaque jar to protect them from sunlight, which can affect the flavour.
THE RIGHT TEMPERATURE Water that’s left to cool for a while after boiling is perfect for brewing coffee (experts say 91˚C - 96˚C). Avoid pouring freshly boiled water on your coffee, it will burn the beans.
LET YOUR COFFEE ‘BLOOM’ When brewing coffee in a cafetière, don’t fill the jar with hot water immediately. Instead, pour in enough to wet the grounds and let them stand for a bit. This allows the coffee to ‘bloom’, which is good for flavour.
