How to make a perfect pot of coffee


Assuming you’re talking about drip coffee:

The first thing you need is good quality coffee beans. Go to a local roaster and ask for their recommendations; they should be able to guide you to something suitable for your taste. Once you’ve got your beans, grind them to a medium-coarse grind using a burr grinder.

Next, you’ll need to heat up some water. Bring it to a boil and then let it sit for about 30 seconds to cool off slightly; you don’t want it to be too hot when it comes into contact with the coffee grounds.

Now it’s time to combine the water and grounds. Place the filter into the filter holder and wet it with some of the hot water; this will help it to stick and will also preheat the filter. Then add the coffee grounds to the filter and give them a little shake to level them off.

Slowly pour the hot water over the grounds, starting in the middle and spiraling outwards. Be sure to pour slowly and evenly, wetting all the grounds; if you pour too quickly, the water will bypass the grounds and you’ll end up with a weak cup of coffee. Once you’ve added all the water, let the coffee brew for about 4 minutes.

After 4 minutes, remove the filter holder and dispose of the used grounds. Pour yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy!
