How to Make Great Coffee

Tired of making less than stellar java in your drip maker? Getting great coffee at home is simple with the right ingredients!

You will need

  • Fresh beans
  • Grinder
  • Cold water
  • Coffeemaker
  • Milk
  • Flavored syrup
  • Liqueur

Step 1 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.

Step 2 Grind beans Grind the coffee beans. Pulse for 10 to 15 seconds for a medium grind, and 15 to 20 seconds for a fine grind.

Step 3 Measure grounds Measure two rounded tablespoons for each six ounces of water.

Step 4 Measure water Add cold, filtered water to the coffeemaker’s basin and close the lid.

Step 5 Brew coffee Start the coffeemaker and enjoy the aroma as the coffee brews.

Step 6 Serve Serve the coffee immediately. Well-made coffee can be enjoyed black, with milk, or flavored with syrup or your favorite liqueur.
