Not long ago, brewing method options were simpler and way more straight forward. But thanks to more progressive and experimental coffee enthusiasts, we have an extensive range of brewing methods to choose from that offer different ways of experiencing your coffee's flavors.
Comparing coffee to wine is akin to comparing day and night — incidentally, the former is usually consumed during the day and the latter at night.

One thing that you can assess for yourself, though, is choosing the roast level of your coffee beans.
