Coffee (Coffea Arabica) is a plant that produces beans that are roasted, ground, and steeped or brewed to make a beverage. The transition from bean to drink can be done in many ways, each of which involves combining the ground and roasted beans with water at a ratio suggested by the roaster, then straining or filtering the solids. Here is how to make a cup of coffee:

  • Combine ground and roasted beans with water at a ratio suggested by the roaster
  • Strain or filter the solids

Many people add things to their prepared coffee. Here is a comprehensive list of things acceptable to add to coffee:

  • Milk (whole or 2%)
  • Lite cream or half-n-half
  • Sugar
  • Artificial sweetener (such as Sweet-n-Low)
  • Ice

If you follow these instructions, congratulations, you have made a cup of coffee suitable for human consumption. This concludes this expose on the making of a cup of coffee.
