I have come a long way in my coffee making skills. I didn’t start drinking coffee until 10 years ago, but for years before that, I was often in charge of making the coffee in the huge percolators at church. I would open a can of whatever had been donated, pour in a bunch of grounds with no particular measurement in mind, and then let the coffee pot do its work. I can imagine I made some pretty awful coffee back then.

I consider myself a home coffee making pro now. I’ve tried dozens of brands and have found my favorites. I buy beans and grind them for each pot. I know how much I need to grind for the automatic coffee maker and how much I need to grind for the French press. I make good coffee. But even I, as I sat here sipping my Weaver’s Organic Blend coffee, learned a thing or two from this infographic, although I don’t see myself ever using the coffee art skills it teaches.

It never occurred to me that I would be able to brew coffee directly into a mug by placing a paper filter with grounds over it and pouring in hot water. I will have to remember that if I ever experience a coffee pot breakdown.

I also found the information on how the rest of the world drinks their coffee interesting. My mom drinks her coffee like the Swiss do. Who knew?
