If you drink a cup of great coffee at the beginning of the day, then mentally the day can be beautiful for you too. But when the coffee shops are closed, relying on a barista to serve your daily cup may not be an option for you. If that’s the case, you might be looking to brew a good cup yourself. And, depending on the amount you drink a day, it could also save you some cash. With these nine basic principles, you’ll have the option to make your own ideal mug of coffee each morning, directly in your home.
The people of the United States drink over 280 million cups of coffee each day at home, amounting to over 102 billion home-brewed cups a year. But it turns out that 30-35% of them are doing it wrong, at least if the goal is to make the perfect cup of coffee.
According to a National Coffee Association study, one-third of respondents said they had a coffee over the past 24 hours from a single cup machine like a Keurig. That number went up 5 percent over figures collected in 2013, along with another 25 percent of respondents saying they planned to buy a single cup machine over the coming year.
how to make cup of coffee?
1. Prepare your ingredients. Measure your water and coffee beans. We suggest the proportion of 28g of espresso for each 12 oz of water. Estimated by volume, that is around 4 tablespoons to 1.5 cups of water. But you can make it stronger or weaker to your taste.
2. Grind coffee to coarse ground. Those who use pre-ground coffee can skip this step.
3. Fill the kettle & set to boil. Pour measured water into the kettle and turn on to boil.
4. Add coffee beans to filter. While water is bubbling, add beans to filter. Here we show the grounds in a permanent filter.
5. Get the correct temperature of the water. Once the water has boiled, wait about 30 seconds before pouring so that the water has settled down slightly from its active boiling temperature. This is called, “off boil” water.
6. Blooming. Blossom the coffee beans by pouring enough water to wet the entirety of the grounds. You’ll see the it is sprouting since it will bubble. Stop pouring and let the coffee boil for 30 seconds.
7. Begin your brew pour. Pour water consistently and uniformly over grounds. We recommend using a clockwise motion starting at the middle and moving towards the edge, and back to the center. Keep repeating that pattern, pouring the water at a rate that will not “flood” the grounds but will keep them submerged in water.
8. End your brew pour. If you’ve estimated your exact measurements of water, you will end your mix spill when you have come up short on the water that makes this step easy. Make sure to let all of the water drips through your filter before removing it. You shouldn’t see any dripping.
9. Remove the filter and the grounds.
10. Serve and enjoy. Pour coffee into your preferred cup and drink. Enjoy it black or with any of your preferred café increments.
