How to Brew Coffee Methods
Here are methods of how to brew coffee at home with and without coffee maker.
1- Electric filter coffee machines have an important advantage over other coffee brewing methods: they are easier than others. For this reason, they are the most preferred at home. Electric filter coffee machines make coffee according to their quality. And cheap ones make a bad coffee.
If you want to get a good coffee out of high-quality coffee beans, having a good coffee machine is better for you. Those with hot plates; coffee is brewed quickly, it creates a bitter taste that disturbs the taste of coffee. Choose the ones with a thermal jug for good coffee. The machine should be able to heat the water to a sufficient temperature, it should not go below or exceed the required temperature.
2- French Press coffee is one of the safest methods. It can easily be found everywhere and its price is not high. It was patented by French designers in 1852. It was later invented by Italian Attilio Calimanien in 1929. The Italians call it “сafetière à piston”.
Attention must be paid to the presence of sediments in the bottom. If you drink them, it will leave a bad taste in your mouth. If you make coffee from medium grinding, you can avoid this situation.
3- Pour over coffee: there are many methods and varieties of this coffee making. This brewing is done by percolation.Coffee is ready when hot water is poured on top of the ground coffee. Water slowly passes through the lower glass as coffee. Pour over brewers are also known as “filter brewers“, “drip brewers“, “drippers“, “drip cones” or “coffee cones.”
It is made from ceramic in general, but there are many kinds. On the bottom is a cup that resembles a cup of coffee, and on the upper side is a more funnel-like part with a hole in the middle.The brew section is covered with paper or cloth to serve as a filter. If you pour water too slowly, the coffee will be denser and more bitter. If it is poured quickly, it will become more juicy and weaker this time.
Over time you can get a taste that suits you. When you learn the trick, it does not take 5 minutes to make a coffee that everyone likes.
4- Moka pot was invented by Italian Alfonso Bialetti in 1933. If you prefer espresso, you do
not need another coffee maker to make coffee at home. It is very easy to prepare a
bitter and strong espresso immediately with this little stylish tool.
It consists of three main parts; bottom chamber, upper chamber and in the middle
funnel. In the lower part, water boils and pressure builds up. Boiling water is brewed
while passing through the funnel and the filtered coffee is collected in the upper part.
There are also electric-powered types, but the original one is stove-top. As I mentioned
before, coffee made with moka pot will be bitter, if you do not like bitter coffee this
brewing technique is not for you. To avoid bitterness you should not use fine grinds
and dark roasts.
5- Turkish coffee is one of the oldest coffee brewing techniques. You can do it easily in your home without any coffee maker. It is generally made with a coffee pot(cezve) made from copper. If you do not have this tool, you can use any small pot. When you make this coffee, you should use fine ground coffee beans.
If you want to add sugar to your coffee, you should do this during brewing. Since there is no filter during brewing, it should be allowed to wait for about one minute after it is poured into the cup. During that time, grounds accumulate in the bottom of the cup. Be careful not to drink this settlings in the bottom while you are drinking coffee. Traditionally this coffee is brewed on the sand. But it’s also done on the stove-tops.
6- If you look at the vacuum pot from the distance, you might not know it’s a coffee maker. Looks more like test beaker. This technique is an old method, invented in Germany. The pressure builds up in the lower section as the water is heated. Due to the pressure, the water in the lower tank passes to the upper tank.
In the upper section, coffee is brewed with a combination of water and coffee.The pressure builds up in the lower section as the water is heated. Due to the pressure, the water in the lower tank passes to the upper tank. In the upper section, coffee is brewed with a combination of water and coffee.
When the coffee is brewed, the heat must be turned off in the lower part. When the lower side is cold, the water that had gone up earlier comes back to the lower container in the form of brewed coffee. The vacuum pot is also known as siphon or siphon coffee maker.
