Although there is nothing better than your favourite coffee from your neighbourhood café, it is important to know how to prepare your own delicious cup of coffee.
You may not have time to travel to your local shop or you might be trying to save money, which is why you must be able to brew yourself coffee in your own home. However, with so many different coffee brewing methods available, it can be difficult to know which one to use.
Keep reading to learn about 5 coffee brewing methods to spice up your morning coffee routine and find the best one for you.
1. Drip Coffee Method
Drip coffee is a popular way to make coffee at home because of both its quantity and simplicity.
This coffee-making method warms up cold water using heat and pressure before being siphoned through the machine and filtered through the grounds. The brewed coffee passes through a filter and is collected in a carafe.
Your fresh coffee is then ready to pour! When you wake up, all you have to do is pour, fix, and enjoy.
2. Espresso Machine
If you’re familiar with coffee, you probably know what an espresso machine is. After all, they have been around since 1901.
While there are a ton of espresso machines on the market, the coffee brewing method remains the same: pressurised water is forced into a chamber or puck containing finely crushed coffee beans via a filter basket. There are a number of home suitable espresso machines available in the market now and the result is a tasty, wonderful shot of espresso in no time!
3. Moka Pot
The Moka Pot delivers the same ideal caffeine rush as an espresso shot.
It is an espresso maker that is known for its three-chambered coffee brew method. When the water in the bottom chamber boils, pressure is created by the steam, which forces the water to rise through the coffee grounds and into the top chamber.
You’re left with a powerful, bittersweet coffee that feels like you have caffeine to last you throughout the whole day.
4. French Press
With the French Press, you don’t need any coffee filters because the coffee grounds are directly soaked in water, creating an immersion coffee home brewing method.
The grounds are submerged in hot water and strained with a metal filter. The end product is a robust, earthy, full-bodied coffee.
The French Press is easy to use and produces a coffee with a distinct taste unlike any other and it’s easy to bring with you when you are travelling from home to the office or even on small trips!
5. V60 Pour Over
The V60 Pour Over coffee brewing method is a simple yet brilliant way to make coffee.
Once you have heated up your water and added your paper filter and grounds, you’re ready to go. Pour your water over the grounds until it has finished draining through the filter.
And the best part? You can brew into any cup, mug, or decanter.
These different ways to make coffee each provide a wonderful cup of coffee and produce their own unique flavour and aroma.
