How to Brew: Drip Machine

April 03, 2019 2 min read

Everyone remembers the feeling of waking up in the early hours to the familiar scent of your parent's coffee brewing in their handy drip machine. They'd pour themselves a cup, maybe add a few sugars, some cream, and sit down with the Sunday paper. Welcome back to our series, "How to Brew" with our brewing guide, Nick. Today, we want to bring you a little bit of nostalgia and show you how to make the classic cup of coffee using the standard drip machine!

Step 1

Always start with your favorite coffee! For a drip coffee brewer, we recommend the robust flavors of our Alpha Blend or our smooth body Paper & Slippers Blend

Step 2
Warm your drip machine and carafe by running one brewing cycle with just water (no coffee or filter inserted). This will prime the heating coils in your brewer, allowing it to reach ideal brewing temperature of between 195 – 205 degrees for your brew.

Step 3
While the machine is warming, measure 2 rounded tablespoons of coffee (about 14 grams) for every 6 ounces of coffee that you would like to brew.

Step 4
Grind coffee to a medium consistency, or until it appears to be about the size of beach sand.

Step 5
Place a properly sized coffee filter into the brew basket and pour the ground coffee into the filter. Gently tap the side of the basket to disperse the coffee evenly in the brew filter.

Step 6
Using filtered water, fill the coffee brewer’s reservoir to the desired level - remembering to use a ratio of 6 ounces of water for every 2 tablespoons (14 grams) of coffee.

Step 7
Start the brewing process, wait for the full cycle to complete, and sneak in a few belly rubs to pass the time!

Step 8
Fill your favorite mug, grab a spot on the couch with your pup, and enjoy 15 minutes of peace and quiet before the day begins!

 

We hope these updated brewing tips for the perfect drip cup of coffee brings a smile to your face as you remember the good ol' days. Thanks again for stopping by. We'll see you next time on "How to Brew"!
