Brewing Specialty Coffee at Home Methods
1. Pour-Over Brewing:
- What You Need: A pour-over cone, coffee filters, freshly ground coffee, hot water.
- How It Works: Place the cone over your coffee mug, add a filter, pour in coffee grounds, and slowly pour hot water in a circular motion. This method allows you to control factors like water temperature and pouring speed, enhancing the flavors of your coffee.
2. French Press Brewing:
- What You Need: French press, coarsely ground coffee, hot water.
- How It Works: Add coffee grounds to the French press, pour in hot water, and let it steep. After a few minutes, press down the plunger, separating the grounds from the brewed coffee. This method results in a full-bodied and robust cup.
3. Aeropress Brewing:
- What You Need: Aeropress, coffee filters, finely ground coffee, hot water.
- How It Works: Insert a filter into the Aeropress, add coffee grounds, pour hot water, and stir. Attach the cap and press the plunger to extract the coffee. The Aeropress is known for its versatility, allowing you to experiment with different brew times and coffee-to-water ratios.
