A Guide For Homebrew Coffee

Most people enjoy a cup of coffee either in the morning or as a pick me up during the day. There are many methods to brew coffee outside of the usual coffee pot brew. These different ways can impact the taste and provide a fun new experience for many.

French Press

French pressed coffee is sometimes considered the best tasting coffee. It has some benefits like being more cost efficient. It is also pretty simple to use and easy to store. To brew coffee, you would need to pull out the plunger and add in the coffee. Next, pour not quite boiling water into the pot and stir it gently. Replace the plunger and push it until it is stopped above the water and let sit for a few minutes before pressing the plunger down with a steady force.


Hot and cold brew is possible with the Aeropress. This style of coffee is similar to the French press. The plunger is pushed out of the chamber and the filter is placed in the filter cap. After placing the filter cap onto the chamber, it should be placed on a sturdy mug. A rounded scoop can be used to pour coffee grounds into the chamber. Shake it to help level the grounds. Pour hot water to level one on the chamber, stir the water with the grounds and replace the plunger. Push until there is some resistance, continuing to push until resistance until all of the coffee is pushed through the filter.
