Custom Blend Whole Coffee Beans at Home

Make Your Own Custom Coffee at Home!

I have started blending whole coffee beans at home to create my own blends.  I really like the smokey flavor of dark roast, but I also like the nutty flavor and citrus notes of light roast.  Why not have all of these flavors at once in the same cup of coffee?

I bought a bag of French Roast dark roast whole coffee beans and a bag of Kona Blend light roast whole coffee beans at Target.  They were marked way down to $5.49 for a 12 oz bag, so I decided to give Target's Archer Farms store brand a try.

I poured an equal amount of dark roast beans and light roast beans in a bowl and stirred them with a spoon until they were evenly mixed.

Next, they went into the coffee grinder, 5 scoops to make a 16 oz cup.  Finally, the freshly ground beans went into my Melitta Thermal Coffee Maker's cone filter and I filled the water tank with filtered water from my refrigerator.

The result...  Some of the best coffee I have ever had!  I have been drinking my 50/50 dark-light custom blend for about a week now.

This is an easy thing to try at home.  All it takes is two different kind of coffee beans and a coffee grinder.
