I don’t know about you, but I love a good cup of coffee. The smell makes me want to go make one right now. But how do I like my coffee? Well, it’s not the same every time. Some days I prefer iced coffee or hot tea, and other days I need something stronger to get me going in the morning. To satisfy my craving for variety with a single drink, I’ve developed an interesting brewing method that allows me to have both strong and iced coffee at any time!
Step 1: Choose a good coffee brand. It doesn’t matter if you have the greatest brewing method if your coffee stinks. Go with something you like.
Step 2: Grind it fresh. Nothing makes coffee taste worse than stale, pre-ground beans
Step 3: Measure your coffee and water carefully – too much of either will make the drink bitter, but not enough means weak results. I like to use a slightly rounded tablespoon per cup. Ground for drip or filtered coffee.
Step 4: Bring water to a boil, then brew immediately – once the pot is on the stove and brewing has begun, it’s too late.
Step 5: Pour boiled water steadily over the grounds – this is where you can experiment with how to pour. I like a spiral pattern, starting in the middle and spiraling outward.
Step 6: Let it sit for a minute or two, then begin the slow process of pouring yourself a cup.
Step 7: wait five minutes before serving and drinking your coffee
Step 8: Drink and enjoy your cup of coffee!
