    Immediately start the coffee pot as soon as you wake up. Alternately, check your coffee maker's manual to see if you have a delay brew or timer option. If so you can set your coffee machine to start on its own before or right when you wake up.

Tips

  • Coffee becomes stale when it's exposed to air. So you will get fresher tasting coffee if you don't leave the coffee grinds sitting around all night, and put them in in the morning.

Warnings

  • Don't leave the cream out on your counter because in the morning it will spoil at room temperature.
  • Too much caffeine can cause you to be jittery.

Things You'll Need

  • Coffee maker
  • Coffee grinds
  • Filters
  • Water
