Every true coffee enthusiast probably spends a couple of hours every week to keep up with transforming coffee trends and staying up to date with new and innovative methods and techniques. If you, like hundreds of other coffee enthusiasts out there, are eager to learn the inside-out of coffee, you need to master the brewing methods too! In the last blog, we spoke about Brewing via pressure, and in this one, we’ll take you through Brewing via immersion.
Let’s get started!
1) French Press
The French Press easy-to-use method has been around for decades and is sure to provide you with a distinct and unique flavour.
For the best brew, use a coarse grind to ensure you don't have particles stuck in the filter.
Use off the boiling water, steep, and plunge. Give your steeping undivided attention.
As long as you follow the instructions, you're going to be left with a non-harsh aromatic coffee that is full of chocolaty and aromatic flavour.
2) The Siphon Brew:
The Siphon method, although not commonly used in homes nowadays, is a beautiful method from the mid-1800s when people believed that boiling coffee killed its taste.
In the Japanese method:
The method remains the same until the bowl is placed over the flame.
Once the water begins to bubble and boil, insert the upper bowl.
Once an inch of water has risen into the upper bowl, immerse the coffee into the water.
Keep the siphon over the heat and stir.
Separate the siphon pot from the heat source and wait for the coffee to descend into the lower bowl in 30 to 90 seconds.
3) Aero Press
One of the Gen X innovations in the coffee brewing culture, this is a cool way of brewing coffee, anywhere.
For the best brew, use a medium-fine grind to ensure you don't have particles stuck in the filter.
When ground coffee are steeped in hot water and a plunger is pressed down to create a high level of pressure, intensely flavoured coffee is extracted.
As long as you follow the instructions, you're going to be left with a sweet and balanced flavoured coffee.
If you're already excited and "brewed up" with these methods of brewing and are ready to try out every one of them, let us tell you, we've got more coming your way! So stay tuned and keep brewing!
