Glenn Searle from Bean Brewding coffee tours loves a good cup of Joe in the morning. He has trained as a barista and loves talking to people about creating the perfect cup.

Glenn has the following insider tips:

Visit your local café to find out what type of coffee they have and how it's best served. Try something out of your comfort zone. Great places to try different coffees and styles are Blacksmith Speciality Coffee, Dovetail on Overend, Coffee Anthology, Reverends Fine Coffee and Black Sheep Coffee.
You can buy your coffee beans directly from a coffee roaster like Cleanskin Coffee Co, Bear Bones Espresso, Coffee Supreme . You can even roast your own at The Coffee Roaster.

After roasting, coffee beans stay fresh for around three to four weeks.
If you get your bean pre-ground, specify what type of coffee you will be making so the grind can be adjusted to suit your needs.
Coffee beans are best stored away from light and heat.
If you can, buy whole beans and grind them yourself. Hand grinders can be purchased from fifty dollars.
Full cream milk textures better than other milks, like Soy. Try almond, Zymil or coconut milk if you are dairy intolerant.
If you are attached to your coffee pod machine, look for sustainably certified beans and biodegradable pods.

Don't forget to check with your barista about using reusable Keep Cups to get your daily brew.

Bean Brewding run coffee tours every month in Brisbane. They visit independent cafés and roasteries to bring you 'behind the scenes' coffee tours.
