Drinking coffee has health perks you might not know about. Having a cup or two of the tasty brew every morning can lower your risk of getting type 2 diabetes. Not only that, but drinking coffee can lower your risk of getting certain diseases – CoffeeCupincluding some cancers. But not everyone knows how to brew great tasting coffee – or has the tools to make it possible.

Brewing the perfect cup of coffee is a mixture of making sure you have the correct amount of grounds compared to the amount of water used because nothing is as delicious first thing in the morning as that cup of coffee that wakes you up to the possibilities the day holds.

That’s why you want to make sure that you have a precision measuring tool. You don’t want coffee without muscle – coffee that’s so weak it makes you grimace – and you don’t want coffee with too much muscle.

Having the right amount of grounds scooped into your coffeemaker is important for the strength and flavoring, and that’s why you need to pick up a stainless steel long handled standard coffee scoop.

These handy scoops can be used with any full pot coffeemaker or the ones that only make a single serving cup at a time. They’re even wonderful to use with espresso machines. This coffee scoop has an extra long handle so that you don’t get coffee grounds stuck to the back of your fingers when you’re scooping into the can or bag of coffee.

You get less mess and less waste of coffee. It’s easy to grip and because it’s stainless steel, it can easily be washed in the dishwasher. This scoop has a nice, thick handle and the scoop portion is deep enough to hold two tablespoons of grounds.

Because it’s so affordable, this scoop is great as part of a housewarming gift – just use a festive ribbon to attach it to a bag of gourmet coffee. It’s also great extra gift idea when giving someone a coffeemaker as a present.

If you’re looking for something with a smaller measurement and also want a café spoon, you can get the Stainless Steel “Café” Engraved Coffee Scoop by Cuisinox for close to the same price. This one only holds one tablespoon of grounds versus the two.

For gatherings with your family and friends that are little more glitzy, you can even find embossed coffee scoops like the Embossed Measuring Coffee Scoop. Coffee scoops are also great tools to use for measuring out hot cocoa for wintry days when the kids come in from building snowmen and need to thaw out.
