Coffee 2 Ways! WITH NO COFFEE MAKER!!!!

Share it with your friends Like

Nope… it isn’t instant coffee! I’m using FRESHLY GROUND coffee beans to make two amazing cups ‘o joe two different ways and because it is so yummy, I don’t even own a traditional coffee maker!

Now I feel the urge to cue the “Coffee Pot (It’s Time For The Perculator)” song, even though we aren’t using one. Go ahead and google it… it’ll boost your mood!

But I digress. Read on for the recipe.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For each method, you will need to use coffee grounds that are NOT in powdered form (i.e the kind you use in a standard coffee maker). The grounds need to be coarse (think: cake crumbs, or crumbs left on a plate from a sandwich). I grind mine fresh every morning, but you can use the grinder at the grocery store if you don’t own one. FYI: You can get a decent grinder for less than $20. I highly recommend it, as fresh ground coffee beans make for even BETTER coffee, especially at the crack of dawn (when you’re tired, unorganized, packing school lunches, making breakfast…. you get it, right?) I’m digressing again.

NOTE: Use one heaping tablespoon of coffee beans per cup and grind coffee beans to a coarse grind.

Method 1: French press
Place desired amount of coffee in french press (see note above). Cover with very hot water, using about 1 cup of water per cup of coffee. Let stand about 5 minutes; longer for stronger coffee, less for weaker coffee. Pour and enjoy!

Method 2: Place desired amount of coffee in a strainer (see note above) and place over a liquid measuring cup or large coffee mug. Gently and slowly pour very hot water over coffee. Using a second measuring cup or strainer, repeat process anywhere from 2-5 times until coffee reaches desired strength.
