You Will Need
- Fresh beans
- Cold water
- Flavored syrup
Decide on a grind
Figure out what grind your coffeemaker requires. Cone-shaped filters require a fine grind, while basket-shaped filters take a coarser grind.
Grind the coffee beans. Pulse for 10 to 15 seconds for a medium grind, and 15 to 20 seconds for a fine grind.
Measure two rounded tablespoons for each six ounces of water.
Add cold, filtered water to the coffeemaker's basin and close the lid.
Start the coffeemaker and enjoy the aroma as the coffee brews.
Serve the coffee immediately. Well-made coffee can be enjoyed black, with milk, or flavored with syrup or your favorite liqueur.
