You don't need to go to the coffee shop for the perfect cup of joe. With a little guidance, you can sip cafe-quality coffee from the comfort of your home without even changing out of your pajamas. To get you started, we rounded up easy recipes and proper preparation techniques from our editors and community.
According to Italian coffee company Illy, you need 7 to 8 grams of coffee grounds per 6.7 ounces of water for the perfect French-pressed coffee. So, scoop those grounds into your French press, and then pour hot water — not boiling — into the pot and gently stir.
Insert the plunger into the pot, stopping just above the waterline. Let stand for three to four minutes before pressing the plunger down slowly, using steady pressure. Pour and enjoy with a healthy (or unhealthy) creamer.
Indulge in the warm and comforting flavors of a Dunkin' brown sugar and caramel in a latte that's so easy to make, your Keurig can do it at home.
Ditch the store-bought coffee creamer and make your own from scratch. Thanks to dates and almond milk, this creamer is naturally sweet and dairy free.
If you drink coffee every day, milk and sugar can get pretty boring. A different take on your usual caffeine fix blends coffee with bananas, vanilla, milk and cinnamon.
Embrace those island flavors when you start your day with this energy-boosting smoothie. Coconut yogurt functions as a delicious and healthy dairy-free creamer. You can even freeze your yogurt the night before so the smoothie turns into coffee coconut ice cream.
For those who prefer java on ice, cold brew pots are a fairly inexpensive investment. If you don't have one, that's OK, too. You can just mix coffee grounds with water and strain when it's done.
Cold brew is different from iced coffee, which you can make by brewing your favorite coffee and chilling it. If you didn't know that, then you might not know what the names of these other coffee drinks mean.
