Assuming you have all the supplies needed to make coffee (coffee beans, grinder, filter, water, mug, etc.), making coffee without electricity is actually quite simple. In this guide, we’ll cover how to make coffee using two popular methods – the Cowboy Method and the Pour Over Method – both of which can be done without electricity.

The Cowboy Method:

1. Start by grinding your coffee beans. If you don’t have a grinder, you can use a mortar and pestle or even a rolling pin. Just make sure the beans are ground relatively evenly.

2. Next, add the grounds to your filter. If you’re using a paper filter, fold it into a cone shape and place it in your mug.

3. Boil some water and then let it cool for about 30 seconds. This step is important because if the water is too hot, it will scald the coffee and make it bitter.

4. Pour the water over the grounds, being sure to wet all of them.

5. Allow the coffee to steep for 3-5 minutes.

6. Slowly pour the coffee into your mug, being careful not to disturb the grounds.

7. Enjoy!

The Pour Over Method:

1. Start by grinding your coffee beans. If you don’t have a grinder, you can use a mortar and pestle or even a rolling pin. Just make sure the beans are ground relatively evenly.

2. Place the filter in your mug and wet it with some hot water. This will help it stick to the mug and prevent the coffee grounds from getting through.

3. Add the coffee grounds to the filter.

4. Boil some water and then let it cool for about 30 seconds. This step is important because if the water is too hot, it will scald the coffee and make it bitter.

5. Pour the water over the grounds, being sure to wet all of them.

6. Allow the coffee to steep for 3-5 minutes.

7. Slowly pour the coffee into your mug, being careful not to disturb the grounds.

8. Enjoy!
