Learn How to Brew Coffee with These 5 Methods, along with our Favorite Product Suggestions!
Brewing coffee is an art form that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. There are many different ways to make a perfect cup of joe, and each has its own set of devotees. In this blog post, we will discuss the five most popular methods for brewing coffee and provide product suggestions for each one. Let's get started!
Method 1: Cold Brew. The taste of your coffee is affected by many factors, including the type of bean, the grind, the water temperature, and the brewing method. Some coffee aficionados believe that cold brew coffee has a smoother taste than other methods because it is not exposed to heat during the brewing process. If you are looking for a less acidic cup of coffee, cold brew may be the way to go. To learn how to make cold brew see our blog post Top 5 Reasons to Try Cold Brew Coffee This Summer + How to Make the Most of It, and enjoy a delicious cup of joe! We recommend using the Primula Burke Deluxe Cold Brew Coffee Maker (#paidlink) to make this process even easier, and it comes in a bunch of fun colors to make your morning even brighter.
Method 2: Drip. If you are looking for a quick cup of coffee in the morning, the drip method is probably your best bet. Drip coffee is the most widely known and used method of making hot coffee. Drip coffee makers work by slowly filtering hot water through a bed of ground coffee. This method produces a well-balanced cup of coffee with a rich aroma. To make drip coffee you will need a drip coffee maker. We like the Ninja Programmable Brewer (#paidlink) . It's earth friendly with a reusable filter! Simply scoop coffee grounds into a filter, fill up the reservoir with water, and press 'start' to “drip” hot water over the grounds and into your coffee pot.
Method 3: Pour Over. If you want to get a little more hands-on with your coffee, the pour over method is a great option. The pour over method gives you complete control over the taste and strength of your coffee. You can experiment with different grinds and water temperatures to find the perfect cup for your taste buds. We recommend using the Bodum Pour Over carafe (#paidlink) .
Method 4: French Press. French press is another popular brewing method that is loved for its simplicity. French press preparation uses a glass cylinder with a metal filter and plunger. You add course ground coffee beans into the cylinder, pour piping hot water over the grounds, let the coffee steep for a three to five minutes, then push down on the plunger to "press" the coffee out from the grounds, and pour! People prefer using the French press method for darker, richer roasts. The Mueller French Press (#paidlink) is the perfect tool for this method.
Method 5: AeroPress. Similar to a French press, an AeroPress is also a manual method of brewing coffee that involves a filter and plunger, but pressure is incorporated into the brew process. When using an AeroPress, medium-to-coarse grounds are used. An AeroPress results in a crisp, light taste. The portable AEROPRESS is great for traveling, camping, or anywhere else you need your caffeine on-the-go! We love the Portable AeroPress (#paidlink) , especially when we travel.
