Food tip of the day

The Secret to Better Coffee

If you’re buying the best beans, using a great coffee machine and still wish your coffee tasted as good as it does at coffee bars, install a carbon filter under your kitchen sink. It removes the chlorine and fluorine from your tap water. Fluorine reacts with the tannins in the coffee beans to create bitterness. For less than $200 and some labor—or 12 weeks worth of a daily Venti® at Starbucks—you can enjoy every cup at home that much more.
