When consumed properly, coffee is healthy. Coffee alone doesn’t negatively affect your health, but when sugars and creams are added, it does. Adding stevia or honey to your latte made with almond milk to remove the less savory (and less healthy) is one way to keep things healthy.
Store coffee inside of an airtight container. Oxygen exposure causes coffee to taste awful. Don’t use plastic or other types of bags that are not air-tight, even if the coffee was originally stored in it. These bags should only be used if you plan to brew and drink all the coffee immediately.

The type of water used can alter the taste of coffee, so make sure to use good tasting, filtered water. Starting with bad tasting water will result in bad tasting coffee. You might want to taste your water before brewing with it.
Use water that is pure to get a pure brew from your choice of coffee beans. Always remember that anything involved in the brewing process has the possibility of affecting your coffee’s taste. That is why bottled water, distilled water or at the very least filtered water from your tap results in the best tasting cup of coffee.
For the perfect cup of coffee use fresh roasted coffee beans. When buying beans, try to find out when they were roasted, and check for an expiration date. The best place to buy beans is a specialty store, rather than a common grocery store.
Store coffee beans with care. Coffee beans can very easily absorb outside flavors. They also lose flavor when they are exposed to strong heat. Therefore, you should keep your beans inside an air tight, non-translucent container.
Do you like your coffee with artificial sweetener? Such substances often change the taste of coffee and render it rather bland. You can try drinking black coffee, or just add a little bit of raw sugar to give it a better flavor. If you need to use sweetener, try using only half of a packet.
