If you love coffee but don’t want to deal with the hassle of going to your favorite coffee shop every time you crave a cup, brewing at home is a perfect – and also cost-effective – alternative. But how do you make a truly good cup of coffee at home?
If you ask your fellow coffee lovers about the best ways to brew coffee, chances are you will be inundated by some very strong opinions. You will find plenty of people offering advice on how to make coffee, what type of coffee to use, what gadgets you need, and most important, what exactly makes a good cup. But here’s the thing: The perfect cup of coffee isn’t what’s perfect for others; it is the one you enjoy. Your preferred method of making coffee ultimately boils down to your personal taste.
Here are some of the best methods for you to try:
If you drink a lot of coffee throughout the day or you just want a convenient way to make your daily java, a drip machine is the way to go. All you need to do is pour water, add a coffee filter, and then put in your coffee grounds. The ease of simply pressing a button and enjoying delicious, well-balanced coffee is unmatched. The only thing that might be easier is instant coffee and you don’t want that.
If you love your coffee to be more delicate and lighter-bodied, pour-over coffee might be just what you need. This method involves placing a filter cone over your cup, filling it with ground coffee, pouring hot water over it, and letting it drip. This method gives you more control over the flavor of your coffee because it allows you to control the speed of the pour as well as the number of rounds of pouring.
To make a rich, full-bodied cup of joe, you need a French press. This method doesn’t use any filter. Instead, it brews by soaking the coffee grounds in hot water. This results in a much bolder flavor because the coffee sits in the water for some time sans a filter. This is another easy and quick brewing method that is perfect for those who like a quick cup right after they get out of bed or when they are pressed for time.
The AeroPress is a favorite among coffee lovers who like to brew their own coffee even when they are on the go. It provides a strong, full-bodied flavor without the sediments of the French press. This compact device works almost like a syringe, with a plunger that forces hot water and coffee grounds through a filter into the cup. Although it can only make one serving at a time, the AeroPress is a portable device that is ideal for travel.
No matter which brewing method you choose, if you don’t use good quality coffee beans, you will never get that delicious flavor you crave.
