V60 Cone

What you'll need

V60 • coffee beans/grounds • filter paper • grinder (optional) • scales (optional) • dessert spoon • freshly boiled water • timer
 

STEP 1

Boil the kettle and let it sit for a couple of minutes to help it reach its optimum temperature. The ideal temperature for brewing coffee is between 92°c - 95°c. Any higher and you risk burning the coffee!

STEP 2

Place your filter paper into the V60 cone (or other similar filter device) and pour some freshly boiled water onto it (this gets rid of that papery taste). Let the water run through the paper into a jug/cup and then discard the water. Put your V60 back onto your jug/cup.

STEP 3

Add your coffee into the cone. You want to use around 15g of medium grind coffee per 225g of water. That's roughly 4 teaspoons, and will make you a decent size cup. Want to make more than one cup? Just multiply by the amount of cups you want (i.e for 4 people use 60g coffee and 900g water)

STEP 4

Start to pour your water onto the coffee, just enough to cover it. It should bubble away releasing the CO2 from your grounds. After around 30 seconds, slowly add the rest of your water bit by bit. Take your time here, you want a slow and steady flow of water in order to get the best flavour.

STEP 5

Allow all the water to filter through the coffee and then serve! Now sit back and enjoy your delicious brew. Go on, you've earnt it.

Moka Pot

What you'll need

Stovetop • boiling water • freshly ground coffee (medium to fine) • kettle
a heat source (gas/electric stove)• oven gloves/tea towel
 

STEP 1

Boil the kettle and unscrew your stovetop pot. When the kettle is boiled, fill the bottom part of the pot up to the valve with hot water.

STEP 2

Fill up the basket with ground coffee and level it down by patting it with your hand. Place the basket back into the stovetop pot with the spout pointing downwards, then screw the pot back together. Be careful, it will be very hot. Use oven gloves or a folded tea towel for safety.

STEP 3

Put the pot on the low to medium heat and keep your ears open...

STEP 4

As soon as you hear a gurgling noise, your coffee is ready! Remove from the heat (again, be careful) and run the bottom half of the pot under cold water - this will stop it from continuing to heat up the coffee.

STEP 5

Serve immediately and enjoy as espresso or top with hot water/milk for a longer drink.
