It's hard to find a house without an electric drip machine these days. Be sure your brewer is able to brew at 198-202 degrees during its brew cycle of 6 minutes. With the right machine, it's a great way to get the job done quickly & efficiently, for yourself or for a crowd.
Here's how to get it done:
Tools for the job (*required)
Drip coffee brewer*
Measuring scoop or scale *
Paper filters to fit your coffee machine*
Place paper filter in machine's brew basket
Measure coffee (adjust as needed to your taste)
By weight: 10.6g for each 170g water or 6 oz cup
By volume: 1.5 T for each 6 oz cup
(you can use at little as 1T and as much as 2T - just adjust to your preference)
Use drip setting (a little coarser in texture than refined sugar)
Place ground coffee into paper filter in filter
Start brew. It's always best to brew a full pot, as the entire brew cycle should take 6 minutes for proper extraction. Brewing smaller batches usually results in underextraction, but your machine may have a setting to prolong the brew of small batches.
Sip & Enjoy!
