How To Make Coffee In A Coffee Maker In 5 Steps?
Step 1: Add water to the reservoir
The first step is to add water to the water reservoir. For the best coffee result, we advise you to pour the tap water through a basic water filter, so that all the grains and dirt can be removed. If you don’t like tap water, you can try using bottled water (also works really well).
Note: Never think about using distilled water because it does not contain minerals. In fact, to make tasty flavours for the coffee, the minerals contained in the water are indispensable. Therefore, tap water or bottled water will be the best choice.
Step 2: Prepare a filter
Next, you have to prepare a coffee filter. There are three common types of coffee filters for coffee machines. In this section, we will teach you how to use all of them.
- If you have a cone-shaped filter, you should fold all the crimped edges in the opposite directions. And then, put the filter in the device basket.
- In case you use a filter that has wavy sides and a flat bottom, you can directly put the filter in the coffee machine basket.
- Your machine may also have been equipped with a stainless steel coffee filter. In this situation, you don’t have to prepare the filter anymore.
Step 3: Make Coffee
Now comes the main part. Let’s check out how to make coffee in a coffee maker right away!
If your coffee beans are fresh, you should grind them first. Remember that the size of the ground coffee has a strong effect on the taste. Therefore, set up the grinding mode of your machine carefully so that you can make a suitable coffee size.
On the other hand, you can start directly to make coffee if you use coffee powder.
Add the ground coffee (or powder) inside the filter. Then carefully place the filter basket into the device. After that, switch on the device and wait for it to operate.
As you can see, the coffee will drip down to the pot slowly. Although the total process may take you more than 5 minutes, just don’t rush because what you receive will be a perfect cup of high-quality coffee.
Step 4: Pour coffee in a cup
When the coffee maker completes the work, take out the pot carefully, and pour the coffee into a cup. Be careful because the pot is very hot!
