So nothing is more disappointing than taking a sip and finding your coffee is stale. Fortunately, there might be a super simple solution to your coffee woes.

First, the obvious: Fresh beans are a must. Anything else and your coffee won't have that rich taste you crave. But there's another very important factor for a tasty cup: cold water. Using warm water will leave your brew tasting super stale. Why?

If your coffee still tastes stale, your beans probably are the problem. So when you stock up on new ones, choose a store that roasts their own for the freshest possible. Your mornings will thank you.
