4 Things Everyone Gets Wrong About Coffee

When coffee is made wrong, it can taste bitter or burnt. Unfortunately, many coffee drinkers are making coffee wrong by using old coffee beans, not grinding them right before brewing, and making the coffee too hot. In this blog post, you’ll learn about 4 things that people get wrong about coffee and how these mistakes can be fixed.

It’s not actually that bad for you

There is a myth going around that coffee is very bad, but it has been proven to have many health benefits. For one, coffee is a source of antioxidants that can help fight cancer and prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Coffee also boosts the metabolism by 11% due to caffeine and increases alertness as well as focus.


Coffee may not be for everyone but it does offer some advantages in moderation so it should be considered more than just a bad drink that nobody likes to drink! It can be very helpful to people who are sleepy or just very tired.

This drink increases alertness as well as focus, while also boosting moods in most cases. Coffee also reduces fatigue and helps with general anxiety levels. It has been proven to reduce risks for Parkinson’s Disease, diabetes type II, cardiovascular disease, stroke risk, etc.

It’s important to note if you drink coffee too often or have other health problems such as low blood pressure then it may be best avoided but otherwise enjoy your cup! After all, coffee does offer many benefits, especially when consumed in moderation so don’t let anybody tell you what to do!

Coffee doesn’t have to be black

Many non-drinkers think coffee is only black coffee, but it can be made with milk and a variety of syrups like chocolate. Many people add either sugar or honey to coffee in order to make it sweeter, especially if they are adding coffee to black tea instead of water. Adding sweeteners is the most common way people modify their coffee when they don’t want any flavors added from other ingredients.

Coffee often contains more caffeine than necessary because many drinkers use an entire pot at once rather than measuring out just what they need for one cup. If you’re sensitive to the effects of caffeine (you get headaches) start by using half as much coffee grounds as usual to make coffee.  

The coffee culture in America is largely a European import, so if you’re making coffee with espresso or Turkish coffee choose black coffee over any other variety. If you are interested in other facts about coffee you can learn more at after which you’ll know how to brew the perfect cup of joe. Experimenting with coffee can bring your regular daily routine to a whole new level. Just give it a chance. 

Here is a list of different types of coffee:


  • black coffee
  • coffee with milk and sugar or honey (sometimes called “sweet coffee”)
  • coffee made from a single portion of grounds in an individual cup or mug 
  • espresso
  • Turkish coffee
  • coffee with cream and sugar
  • coffee mixed with other flavors like chocolate 
  • coffee lattes, 
  • Cappuccinos
  • Mochas

You can’t make coffee with instant coffee

A very untrue assumption is that coffee is coffee, no matter the type. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. One of the most common misconceptions about coffee is that it’s all coffee and you can just make a pot with instant if you’re in a pinch for time. The flavor profile will not have any depth to it because it is pre-made. Because of that, you’ll overdo your sugar or sweetener so as to hide the bad taste 

There is also a lack of caffeine content since instant has less than drip coffee (due to water ratio). This means coffee drinkers will start to feel the coffee snooze if they don’t wake up and drink coffee in the morning. Folgers coffee is a great example of this because it’s not as bad as other instant coffees but still isn’t comparable to drip coffee or French press 

Not all coffee tastes the same, so try different kinds

Different coffee grounds give coffee different tastes and flavors. Try coffee with different grounds to see what you prefer. You may find your new favorite coffee flavor! There are many different coffee grounds and coffee brands to try, so your coffee options are limitless.

If you’re not sure what coffee tastes good to you, start with a dark roast coffee for the fullest flavor or an organic blend of beans. Dark roasts typically have more caffeine than lighter roasts but they also tend to taste stronger and richer. Light roasted coffees usually have less caffeine but they lack the intense flavor that some people enjoy from darker roasts.

You now know that coffee isn’t as bad for you as it seems. You can make coffee with instant coffee, and there are many different kinds of coffee to try so you don’t have to drink black coffee every day. Hopefully, after reading this blog post, your new thoughts on the beverage will be much more positive than before! Now, you might be able to enjoy a cup of joe.
