Cutting costs doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite morning brew and there are a lot many options for creating your own hot and cold caffeinated beverages at home.
The essential element that makes great coffee at home is, of course, great beans. For best quality, buy whole beans and grind them yourself using a bean grinder which is a fairly inexpensive investment. It will help you preserve the quality and flavor of your beans.

Pre-ground beans are more susceptible to moisture as well, greatly affecting the flavor. It is the whole beans grounded at home that provides a richer, fuller flavor.
