How do you make coffee?

A good cup of coffee in the morning can set the mood for the day. But when cafes are closed, you may not be able to count on the barista to serve you a cup of coffee. In that case, you can make a good cup of coffee yourself. Depending on the amount of coffee you drink per day, this can also save you money. By following these nine simple rules, you can make the perfect cup of coffee every morning right in your own home.


French press

The French press is one of the most common ways of making coffee in homes and offices. The main reason for this is the possibility to prepare delicious coffee in a very practical way and in a short time.

Preparation / 10 min:

– Add about 1 gram of coffee and pour boiling water to 1 cup of coffee.

– Press the press after 3-5 minutes and the coffee is ready!

-Use a ratio of 1/15 (e.g. 300 g water to 20 g coffee).



When brewing coffee in a French press, the flavor and contents are strong because the coffee goes directly into the hot water without going through a filter.

Again, because you are not using bleached paper coffee filters that contain the chemicals dioxin and epichlorohydrin, which become carcinogens when they come in contact with water, the French press is considered one of the cleanest and healthiest ways to make coffee.


For those who like strong coffee in small batches, the moka pot is the closest thing to an espresso option.


To brew strong coffee and get a rich flavor in a Moka coffee pot, all you need is a stovetop, which is in every kitchen. Also, because they are made of aluminum, Moka coffee pots retain heat longer and your coffee won’t get cold right away.


Preparation / 15 min:

– Fill the bottom chamber of the Moka pot with water up to the screw you see inside.

– Bring the water to the boil and leave it for 1-2 minutes.

– Put the ground coffee into a coffee chamber of a thickness suitable for the coffee pot moka, place it in the lower chamber and tilt the upper chamber.

– Place the coffee pot on the stove, increase the heat slightly when the water starts to boil and make sounds.

– The coffee is ready when you hear a sizzling sound!



Brew coffee in a filter by slowly pouring water into the filter. A Chemex or Hario V60 filter is most often used for this brewing process.


“Pour over” gives a richer flavor as it matures, while the coffee brews, evenly wetting all parts of the coffee, revealing the unique flavors and notes of the coffee beans.


* 32 g freshly roasted coffee.
* 500 ml of boiled drinking water (94°C).
* Coffee grinder

Preparation / 10 minutes:

– Boil the water and let it rest for 1-2 minutes.

– Place the filter in the tool you are using for pouring.

– Put the ground coffee into the filter and smooth it over all areas of the surface, smoothing it out.

– Slowly strain a quarter cup of water to wet all the coffee.

– Wait 30 seconds.

– Pour in the remaining water 2-3 times, thus touching each part of the coffee and waiting in between.




* 16 g freshly roasted coffee.
* 230 ml of water suitable for making coffee (94°C).
* Coffee grinder
* Precision scales
* Cork

Cooking / 10 minutes:


1. Grind the beans a little finer than for filter coffee.
2. If there is no filtered water in the kettle, heat the water to 94°C (do not boil the water and then cool it).
3. Insert the filter paper into the perforated filter section of the aeropress and screw it in.
4. Fill the Aeropress, cup, filter paper (to get rid of the paper odor) with plenty of hot water.
5. Place the cup on a scale and set the Aeropress on it.
6. Pour the ground coffee into the Aeropress and tap the sides of the Aeropress so that the coffee forms an even layer.
7. Turn on the scale and start the clock.
8. quickly pour 230 ml of water from the water heater over the coffee and stir vigorously for 5 seconds (all the coffee should be saturated).
9. without wasting time, push the top part into the bottom part just enough to fit into the rubber part (this way the coffee will not leak out of the paper).
10. After the first minute, remove the top part and blend again for 5 seconds.
11. Put the top part back in place, remove it from the weight and gently press it down. Total time should not exceed 1.30 minutes.
12. Pressing too quickly will cause the grind to thicken and pressing too slowly will cause the grind to thicken.
13. You can drink the coffee as is or add water to dilute it a bit.
14. Unscrew the auger and push it all the way into the container to get rid of coffee residue. Rinse all parts with hot water.
