Do You Love Coffee? Try These Brewing Tips

Can you remember when you’ve had one of the best cups of coffee? Maybe you brewed it on your own, or perhaps you bought some at your local coffee shop? There are many kinds of coffee and many ways to make it. Keep reading to get some great advice about buying coffee going forward.

If you are looking for a great way to turn basic, boring drip coffee into a special treat look no further than your own fridge and pantry. Hot chocolate mix or a scoop of vanilla ice cream can be great ways to sweeten up a cup of coffee and make it something special.

Do not leave your coffee open any longer than necessary. While preparing your coffee, don’t open the can or bag until you are ready to scoop. Immediately after scooping, close the coffee container. This will keep your coffee fresher longer. It also keeps the flavor and aroma from evaporating in the air.

Coffee tastes much better if it is fresh brewed, and is actually lower in caffeine if consumed soon after it is made. Some people are particular about using only spring water or bottled water to make it, while others seem to think tap water works just fine for making good coffee.

When you purchase coffee beans, keep them somewhere else than the package they came in. Instead, place them in an air-tight container out of direct light. This simple step helps to preserve the beans’ freshness.

Remember that coffee is a very absorbent food. So, proper storage is essential. Keep your unused coffee in a place that is dry and cool where it is protected from both sunlight and heat. However, do not store it in your fridge or freezer. Also make sure the container is opaque and air-tight, to prevent coffee from absorbing flavor and aromas from other foods.

When you brew your coffee at home, do not throw out the used grounds. These coffee grounds might not be good for another cup of coffee, but they are excellent for many other purposes. They are great for composting, exfoliating, cleaning, and quite a few other uses. Don’t throw them away!

If you must redice sugar in coffee, there are other alternatives. Agave nectar, for example, contains sugar but will not harm your blood sugar. Stevia and Splenda also work well to sweeten coffee.

To get the best possible coffee, look for the ones that are made of 100% Arabica beans. These beans are of top quality and will give you the best taste after you are finished brewing. Furthermore, these beans preserve their freshness longer so that you can have great coffee for a very long time.

If you want strong coffee that tastes great, a French Press is good for that. More oil is squeezed out of the coffee beans when a French press is used, and that results in better tasting coffee. Regular paper filter coffee machines tend to lose those oils within the filters.

You should now know about more coffee choices after having read this article. Ready to get some coffee right now? Keep these tips in mind the next time you go shopping for coffee. Sit back and sip a great cup of coffee!

Trip to Pantai Batukaras

Hari ini gua mau nyimpen kenangan waktu trip to batukaras with my official.

Kantor tempat gua bekerja mempunyai agenda rutin membawa crewnya untuk liburan setiap 6 bulan sekali, dan kebetulan liburan kali ini ngecamp di batukaras pangandaran.

Kita berangkat dari tasik pukul 13.00 siang dan sampai ke batukaras pukul 17.00. sekitar 4 jam perjalanan menggunakan bis dari tasikmalaya.

Waktu tempuh dari pantai pangandaran menuju ke pantai batukaras sekitar 50 menit guys jika menggunakan bis, berbeda dengan motor kalian akan lebih cepat sampai hanya dalam hitungan 30 menit.

Nah kebetulan ketika seluruh temen temen menggunakan bis yang disediakan, frans sama si ricky (my nephew ) lebih memilih naik motor supaya bisa lebih cepet.

Nah ini kebetulan lagi di pantai batu hiu , mampir dulu kesini karna kita lebih cepet dari bis sebelum ke pantai batukaras.

Disini kita cuman berenti 15 menit karna bosen, lanjut riding setelan santai sambil menikmati suasana pangandaran yang ngga ada di ciranjang ataupun tasikmalaya.

Deburan ombak , lanscaping hutan mangrove, kapal laut yang berlalu lalang menjadi hal yang paling diingat saat berada di jalan menuju pantai batukaras ini.

Terkadang kita melihat bule lagi naik motor lokal cuman pake lingerie sama bra doang, Asik banget nih wkwkwk.

Ada yang menarik dipantai ini,

Kita melihat lebih banyak touris didaerah pantai ini, Berbeda dengan pantai pangandaran, Frans yang udah 3 kali kesana belum sempet melihat bule satupun disana.

Dan ternyata usut punya usut, selain mereka ngga enak diliatin mulu pas pake bikini touris lebih memilih pantai yang sepi dan ombak yang tinggi daripada pantai yang ramai seperti pantai pangandaran.

Rata rata mereka yang berkunjung ke batukaras jauh jauh dari negaranya, kesininya cuman untuk surfing doang nyobain ombak indonesia. (kata si amang beach boy)

Balik lagi ke cerita, kitapun sampai disana dan the story began

Karna kita menggunakan tour travel, fasilitas dan meeting point telah diatur sedemikian rupa oleh mereka. Sehingga kita hanya tinggal menikmati dan mengikuti aturan main dari tour n travel.

Hampir semua dari kami tidak ingin cepat melewati suasana kebersamaan yang hanya terjadi 6 bulan sekali ini.

Gapleh, jagung bakar, api unggun, dan gitar, menjadi teman kami dimalam yang singkat itu.


Keesokan harinya kita menikmati pantai batu karas dari pagi sampai siang hari, dengan berbagai macam acara.

Mulai dari voli pantai, surfing, fun games, rolling donuts,sampai banana boots kita sambangi satu persatu.

Sayangnya dokumentasi dari pihak travel belum dikirim, Jadi mungkin nanti gua bakalan update lagi postingan ini ketika foto fotonya udah ada.

At least gua sangat menikmati momen ini dan inilah yang sangat disyukuri berada di official ini, dimana acara acara kaya gini tuh selalu continue dilakukan demi membuat crew nya lebih semangat untuk menghasilkan profit.

Haaah I Love my jobs

A good hobby tip if you’re into video games is to think about starting a collection. It’s fun to look at a huge collection of video games, as opposed to selling them once you beat them. Some games will appreciate in value also so you’ll have yourself a great investment.

Before you decide to turn your hobby into a business, do the math. Estimate how much you will need as start-up capital, working capital and the amount you will need to keep going in the beginning until the business takes off. This will give you a good budget and you will be secure financially before you start.

If you are looking for an intellectual hobby, but don’t have a lot of money to spare, try reading and writing. Books can be obtained very cheaply at yard sales or thrift shops, and writing requires little more than paper and pen. Both keep you busy, teach you things, and will expend your creative energies in positive ways!

Make sure that you are using clean scissors for any hobby. Keep lint and adhesive from gumming up the blades by carefully wiping them off after each session. You can use a mild soap and water solution to wash them. Then simply dry and store for next use. Nail polish will help you remove adhesive if you need to.

Find The Way To Cook Great Food

What’s the greatest meal you’ve ever eaten? It probably didn’t take you long to recall that delicious meal. Now, what if you could cook the most delicious meal you’ve ever eaten or better yet, be the source of someone else’s greatest meal? Here are a few cooking tips to make that a reality.

You can remove the garlic odor from your hands by rubbing them for thirty seconds on your stainless steel stove before washing them. Garlic adds a delightful flavor to many recipes, but the unmistakable odor can linger on your hands. Using this tip, you can enjoy your dinner without your hands smelling strongly of garlic.

Make sure that you have the place settings set beforehand so that you can reduce the stress that you will have when you are bringing your food to the table. High levels of stress do not mix well when you are cooking, given the danger, so you will want to reduce this as much as possible.

Try to store spices in dark, cool places and do not store them above your stove. Places that are bright, humid and hot, can cause your spices and herbs to lose their flavor. A good place to put them would be inside of a pantry or in your kitchen cabinets.

If you are trying to lose weight or lower your cholesterol, try to decrease the amount of fat in your diet. These oils are often loaded with unhealthy fats. Nonstick cooking spray is a great alternative that will give you the same end result as the oils with less unhealthy ingredients.

Never use oil that has been used for other foods or has been sitting in a frying pan for a long time. It will give your food a foul taste. If you are unsure if the oil is good enough to cook with, smell it and use your finger to try a little of it.

Make sure that you never use a wine in your food that you would not normally drink. If you cook with an unfamiliar wine, you run the risk of disliking the taste of the wine and having it ruin your food. If you want a safe bet, most liquor stores carry cooking wines.

When you are making Easter eggs it is a pain when the eggs crack because coloring leaks onto the actual egg. To prevent this you can add some vinegar to the boiling water. This helps to seal the egg inside the shell and keep it all in one piece.

When using a chopping board, make sure to always sanitize it before going on to a different ingredient. Making this a habit will prevent cross contamination of bacteria. It is also useful for keeping your flavors from being muddied by being chopped with other ingredients’ residue. A clean chopping board is a safe and useful chopping board.

Use these tips as a springboard for your own cooking. Cooking is a never-ending journey, there’s always something new and fresh to learn and to try. Keep looking for ways to make meals special and one day, someone will remember you as the cook of the greatest thing that they’ve ever eaten.

See Here For The Very Ideas About Photography

You’ve finally made the decision that it’s time to stop treating photography like a mere hobby and time to start taking it seriously. This is a perfect time! Becoming a proficient photographer takes time and the ability to find interest in the things you see.

Use a tripod for maximum camera stability. For random shots of your kids or buildings, a bit of camera shake isn’t a big deal, but for once-in-a-lifetime shots that really matter, a bit of camera shake can ruin a perfect memory. If a tripod is not available, try setting the camera on a flat surface.

Be creative and unique with your subjects. You don’t want to take the same old photo every other photographer has done. Look for unique shots that people haven’t seen before. Choose interesting subjects that aren’t going to bore anyone who sees them. If you want to make a name for yourself, this is essential.

For landscape photography, attempt to capture the natural depth of the view. When you place familiar objects in the foreground of the image, you can help viewers to perceive the size and scope of the subject. Set your cameras aperture opening to a small setting, such as f/8 for most cameras or f/16 for full-frame and panoramic cameras. This will not only increase sharpness in the foreground, but in the background as well.

When you are taking landscape photos, consider the sky. If the sky is rather bland and boring, do not let it dominate the photo. If the sky is lit up with wonderful colors (especially during sunrise, sunset or a storm) it is okay to let the sky dominate the photo.

When composing shots, set your white balance manually, instead of relying on the automatic settings. Setting your white balance manually gives you more control over the contrast and mood of your photo. You can make photos look more stark or more natural, and it’s all up to you. Don’t let the computer program decide how your photos will look.

Often during a landscape shot, photographers will focus on the background, However, the foreground is what critics and viewers alike will focus on. You can maximize the appearance of depth and create a more vivid frame by composing the foreground to make these things happen.

Remember that photography is a good activity to practice alone. Your friends might get impatient and rush you while you are composing your pictures. If you have friends who enjoy taking pictures, do not let their vision influence your own compositions. The social aspect of photography comes later when you can look at your pictures with your friends.

On your smart phone (as long as it has a camera), keep a special inspiration album within your photos. Every day you may stumble upon some amazing, inspirational idea, moment or place. Snap photos of these locales and moments, and store them in this inspiration album. Next time you are looking to try something new with your photography, look back to your inspiration folder for some great brainstorming ideas!

Using what you just read, you will be a lot more prepared to take photographs. If you thought your pictures were good before, wait until you see what you’re really capable of! Your can start improving your skills in photography by following the advice that was provided in this article.
