Huffington Post : Dispelling commonly-held coffee myths
The article includes seven tips to help you brew a better cup of coffee, including buying freshly-roasted beans from a trusted, preferably local roaster; grinding your coffee immediately before brewing; and brewing with water that is just shy of boiling.
Despite what you might have been told in the past, you don't want to keep your coffee in the the refrigerator, says Malcoun. "Roasted beans are porous and readily take up moisture and food odors, so the refrigerator is one of the worst places to store coffee." Instead, buy your coffee in small batches and store it at room temperature in an airtight container.
