Coffee hacks and 10 things will change your life
Coffee hacks – If you love starbucks and co., But do not want to always spend a small fortune on your coffee , these coffee hacks come just right. So you can also conjure coffee creations at home like the pros and make the great pleasure moment from every little coffee break.
1. Let the coffee breathe
Baristas know: The secret of a really good coffee is this particular creamy-frothy consistency, after which we always linger in our favorite café. The trick behind it is Aerating , in German nothing but aerating. For this, the coffee is repeatedly poured from a high height from one container to another. Try the following: Keep your coffee cup on the head in front of you and pour the contents into an empty cup, which you put in the sink for sure. Repeat this several times (but do not scald!) And enjoy a creamy coffee as fresh from the barista of your trust.
2. The perfect milk froth – without milk frother
You do not need a milk frother to create the fantastic foam for your latte. A microwave and a disposable glass are sufficient. Disposable glasses are the all-round talents of the modern kitchen and show here again why you should always have one hand-held. Fill it up to half with milk as you brew the coffee. Screw the glass over and shake vigorously for about 10 to 15 seconds until the milk foams in small bubbles. Then remove the lid (absolutely!) And place the glass in the microwave for about 45 – 60 seconds at high level. That’s it!

7. Drink times cold coffee as coffee hacks
This coffee hack is really anything but yesterday’s: cold-brewed coffee is one of the trends this summer. But be careful not to confuse with ice coffee. While ice-coffee is brewed and then cooled down with ice cubes, in this variant the coffee powder is drained in cold water . The delicious taste is therefore not watered down. Instead, a coffee awaits you, which has preserved all the full flavors of the bean.
Here’s how: 180 grams of freshly ground (see point 5!) Add coffee to 400 milliliters of cold water and allow to draw at room temperature for 12 hours. Then drain the coffee through a filter to remove the coffee grounds. Sounds like a lot of effort? But worth it!

10. Drink as much coffee as you want
As long as you drink enough water. As a coffee lover, you know that it can never really be too much coffee. But the nervous trembling, after a few cups, you know, of course, anyway. Especially in stress situations, when we need coffee so urgently, the one cup additionally acts as a turbo and the tremor starts. You can avoid this by drinking two glasses of water for each cup of coffee. They counteract the dehydration, which can trigger fatigue, tension and concentration difficulties, and keep you on course even in the most stressful moments.
But this is just one of many reasons why you should drink enough water.
