Don’t turn up your nose at a cheap plastic cone shaped coffee dripper!
We put it to the test and were able to make a decent cup of drip coffee.
Polls by Euromonitor as reported by Quartz show that the sale of traditional drip coffee makers has remained stagnant in the last years while coffee pod machine sales have increased by more than 6-fold.
Besides drip coffee makers and coffee pod machines, there are a whole a lot of ways to brew coffee, especially the manual brewing methods. Today we will show you how to make one cup of pour over coffee with a plastic coffee dripper:
Step 1: Grind 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of coffee with a burr grinder.
Step 2: Line the plastic cone shaped coffee dripper with a coffee filter. Place the coffee dripper on top of your favorite mug.
Step 3: Add the freshly ground coffee.
Step 4: According to coffee experts, for maximum flavor use water that is at 205 F.
Saturate the ground coffee with hot water by pouring the water slowly. We were brewing an 8-oz cup of coffee. Let the coffee drip completely to the cup. Our coffee filter was slightly small but still worked.
Step 5: In about 2 minutes your coffee is ready. Enjoy!
What do you need to brew a simple cup of pour over coffee?
1. A pour over coffee dripper of your choice. You have a choice of either getting the ceramic or the plastic. Here is a plastic coffee dripper from Amazon at $12.99. You have a choice of yellow or white (cheaper).
Ours was a gift from a Japanese friend.
2. Get #2 Coffee filters from Melitta. Along with the plastic cone shaped coffee dripper, we received a Daiso #3 coffee filter. #3 is a bit too small for the coffee dripper. We suggest using #2, which you can find on Amazon.com.
That’s all you need to make a simple cup of coffee.
