How to make the perfect cup of fresh coffee. Yes, there is a technique to making the best coffee just like making the best tea.
First and foremost, bring water to the boil in a kettle. Pop a filter into your brewer and rinse with hot water. The reason you do this is to remove any residue on the filter and the hot water warms up your brewer which then keeps your coffee hot for longer.
Add the ground coffee to your filter and when your water is between 195F and 205F slowly pour just enough water over the ground coffee to drench them. Stop pouring before the coffee begins to drip through.
Now slowly pour any remaining water but keep the water in the dripped between half and three-quarters full. This takes approximately 3-4 minutes. Then carefully, remove the filter, serve and enjoy.
