Among the wanderlust-driven coffee community, the AeroPress has a cult following. The aim is to keep things simple; the proper water temperature, the appropriate quantity of air pressure, and the right size grind yield a good tasting brew in minutes. It can create ordinary coffee, cold brew coffee, and even a brew similar to an espresso!.
The French press, which has been steeping coffee in households for a long time, is the unofficial emblem of home-brewed coffee. One of the reasons for its cult-like appeal is its easy operation, minimal cost, and unique-tasting brew. A coarse grind is good since fine particles will cause particles to become caught in the filter. It produces a distinct, non-astringent aromatic coffee with a clean flavor specific to your beans. However, because the last few sips of each cup will be full of sediments, avoid drinking them.
The Moka Pot (also known as stovetop) is for ones who enjoy strong coffee. The base, coffee basket and filter, and top make up the Moka Pot. It was invented in the 1930s in the land of Espressos, Italy, and is still found in most Italian households. The perfect ingredients for a Moka Pot are coffee beans with a rich, nutty, chocolatey flavor profile. You’re looking for a grind slightly more coarse than that of an espresso.
Pour-over methods may appear laborious, but they are great for the coffee maker who wants complete control over the process. Pour-over coffee has a distinctly bright and clean flavor. The finished beverage has subtle nuances of the origin and pleasant taste.
The sipper has more control over the results when using manual pour-over procedures. Ensure that you use the pour-over brewing equipment with a slow-pouring kettle. The pour-over method works best with medium to medium-coarse grinds. The finished outcome is more dependent on precise measuring and timing than on the brewer's expertise.
The cold brew is your ideal partner on hot sunny days. While the brewing process entails steeping coffee grinds for a long time (8 hours at least) it’s definitely worth your time. The process surprisingly involves little to no work at all, and tends to taste sweeter than regular hot brews.
With the coffee evolution, the bar for good brews has certainly risen, with a wide variety of coffee equipment to choose from. For many of us, the process of brewing, finding the perfect recipe, and adding your own spin to it is half the fun. Happy brewing!
