I’m not writing this because I want to be a lazy person. I am doing so because I want to inform others and my friends who like coffee and would rather go to a drive thru to get theirs rather than make it.
I get it, not everyone needs a Syphon brewer or $400 espresso machine at home but with a few kitchen items you can make coffee, easily and quick!
The easiest way to make coffee is to use what’s called the pour over method. This involves pouring hot water through coffee grounds in a filter in which the water drains through the coffee and filter into a mug.
The Pour Over Method
First I want to also note there is another name for this way of brewing and it’s called Drip Coffee and it’s super simple to make.
Wikipedia defines drip coffee brew as a method of coffee brewing that involves pouring hot water over roasted, ground coffee beans enclosed in a filter.
So for this you’ll need a dripper and filter. ( I’ve linked the Hario V60 dripper here which can be found on Amazon. )
Or… a regular coffee maker.
Using a coffee maker is super simple as many of the machines you can et only require you to add a few cups or water to the resivior and then then place in a coffee filter and fill up with coffee grounds.
With on simple push of a coffee the water will begin to heat and your drip cover will begin pouting into the pot.
Now onto the Pour Over method which you would use a dripper and filter.
The method is still the same however you are brewing hot water in a pot or kettle and then with a dripper on top of a mug you will slow pour over the coffee grounds into the filter so that it drip into your mug.
Electric Drip Coffee Makers
This is what I believe to be what that standard is with making coffee at home. It’s the use of an electric coffee maker it too is super simple to use.
In fact I like it over the pour method because its less work involved. I put grounds into the filter bin, add water to the tank and press the start button and in a few minutes I have freshly hot brewed coffee.
So Which Method Do You Choose
Can’t go wrong with either since they are both easy to do, however I lean more towards the pour over method because the whole motion of brewing coffee in this manner seems more manual and I get to enjoy the process.
By yourself an expensive electric coffee maker and press start. This is the easiest way to make coffee in my opinion hands down.
