Recommended method of brewing.
There’s several ways
to brew coffee. These are the most
frequently used and popular methods.
Pour-over: The pour-over method consists of a container with
a hole in the bottom that holds a coffee filter over a cup or carafe. You
simply place your grinds in the filter and pour the hot water slowly and evenly
over all of the grinds.
Press pot: The press pot, commonly called French press method
is another way to make a good cup of coffee. Place coarsely ground beans into
the pot, then add hot water. After a few minutes you press the filter/plunger
down to separate the grounds.
Vacuum pot: Maybe one of the coolest ways to brew your coffee,
a vacuum pot works by placing ground coffee and water into two separate
chambers. The water is then heated and, as it begins to boil, it’s sucked up
into the chamber with the grinds. Turning off the heat brings the coffee (and
not the grinds) back into the lower chamber. It’s fun to watch and makes a
great cup of coffee!
Auto-drip: While it is definitely the most convenient (at
home) method, it doesn’t necessarily brew the best cup of coffee possible due
to less-than-ideal water temperature and poor grind saturation. Just follow the instructions that come with
the coffee maker.
Whichever method you chose have
fun and be creative. Enjoy your next
