For such a simple drink (literally water and beans), coffee can sure get complicated. So to demystify the various brewing methods for our favorite morning drink we went to an expert. Eric Grimm is an events manager at Everyman Espresso in NYC, as well as a professional barista and coffee writer. He was more than happy to answer our burning questions about how to get the best cup out of different kinds of brewing methods.
After that, it's just a matter of knowing your stuff (and being willing to experiment a bit). Pretty soon, you'll be the expert home barista you've always wanted to be.
