Can you make Coffee without a coffee maker?
How do you make coffee without a coffeemaker?
Totally possible. Warning, you might not go back to your trusty coffeemaker.
It's a fair question. If you dare Google how to make coffee you might find yourself with an overwhelming number of options and opinions outside of your trusty ol' coffeemaker. So that's where we want to help.
Basically, there are two main ways to think about making coffee, immersion, where water and coffee(coffee is immersed in water for a bit) are held together in the same container, and drip, where coffee briefly has water pass through it.
On the Immersion side, you have a french press, Aeropress, most cold brew, on the drip side, you have pour-overs with brand names, like Chemex, Kalita, Hario V2, Beehouse.
Both methods produce awesome coffee. But which to choose? If you want to jump into the deep coffee filled waters of options or choose the least expensive option to get started -- pour overs, or a manual form of your automatic coffee maker is a great way to get started.
"There are nearly an unlimited number of options for making coffee, none are better, or more correct. Instead it's about finding a method that works for you." Jenny Ulbricht, Owner and Coffee Roaster at East View Coffee.
