The Best Way to Do Coffee


Research abounds with information about how to make your morning cup taste its best. From the numerous methods in which to brew, to how often it should be consumed throughout the day, coffee plays a big enough part in our lives to dedicate a level of expertise that shouldn’t be ignored.

Huffington Post recently published a list of 5 items that after digging through the best of the best, sounds like a good bet to us.

Here is the general synopsis:

1. Clean your coffee pot.
Clean it with white vinegar and warm water once a week.

2. Store your coffee correctly.
Don’t store coffee in the fridge or freezer or near an air conditioner or heater. Grind beans for each use.

3. Use filtered water.
What goes in must come out.

4. Pour-over brewing.
Hario, Chemex, Bonavita and Kitchenaid offer great options for this.

5. Dont drink coffee all day.
Save your caffeine upload for before lunch. If not, it could lead to some sleepless nights.

We have added one more that could be the most important of them all:


There you have it, all the makings of a perfect cup of coffee or three.

Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Slow Down. Sip Your La Semeuse in 2015


Yesterday was the last day of holiday vacation for many of you. What a blissful two weeks it was, especially for morning coffee time. The whole world slowed down just a bit while the kids were out of school, offices were closed, your neighbors were away, and the absence of a daily grind made the day much sweeter. Instead of racing through your mornings, you woke up later. You pulled out your Chemex Coffeemaker or your Delonghi Espresso Machine to really enjoy your La Semeuse coffee. Instead of pouring in the cold half and half, you took the extra step and went for the foam. Instead of gulping on the fly, you read the New York Times from front to back while sipping slowly. These seemingly small indulgences are what really determine the quality of your day.

We invite you to add another item to your list of resolutions: to keep up this slower pace in the coming year. It may mean that you have to wake up earlier in the morning, perhaps before anyone else in your house does, before the sun has peaked through and the craziness begins. Drink more La Semeuse coffee, and do so slowly. You’ll be grateful you did.
