Our Morning School series on brewing the best coffee is chugging along, and today we're moving beyond propagandising for good coffee and getting into the nitty-gritty of what to do with your high-quality, fresh-roasted beans. Contrary to how it might seem if you listen to hardcore coffee geeks, brewing good cups of coffee at home doesn't have to be approached as if you are taking on a whole new hobby. A few basic principles will give you a toehold into almost every brewing method and with just a bit of trial and error (and of course good beans) you'll discover that a great cup doesn't have to be hard to find.

Finding an approach into the often confusing landscape of consumer coffee bean choices is the essential first step to improving your morning ritual.
