How to Make Kick-Ass
The Materials, The Method & The Madness for making a kick-ass Drip coffee.
About the Drip method
The Drip Coffee brewing method is a simple, easy quick fix. This quintessential filtered-coffee method requires little preparation or time, and with good ingredients, can make a bang-up cup of coffee.
Here are our fanatical Drip Coffee brewing instructions.
• Ground coffee • Fresh water • Drip machine • Filter
We recommend 2 TBSP of coffee for every 1 cup of water. For geeks, that’s a coffee-to-water ratio of 55 grams (2 oz) of ground coffee per 1litre (34 fl oz) of water.
For the bold folks out there, use more. And for the, um, less bold… you get it.
ADD COLD, CLEAN, FRESH WATER TO THE MACHINE.
How much water? Well, how much coffee ya wanna drink? (Add that much water.)
PLACE THE FILTER IN THE MACHINE.
ADD GROUNDS TO THE FILTER.
TURN. IT. ON.
Press the button. And fer 5-cents, make sure it’s plugged in.
LET IT BREW FOR 4-5 MINUTES.
Read a book about birds. Stretch yo’self.
SWIRL THE COFFEE POT.
SERVE. SIP. SAVOUR.
REPEAT. SHARE. WAKE UP & KICK ASS.
Drip Coffee vs Pour Over
Here’s where Drip Coffee wins… Put water in the machine, add a filter and ground coffee, turn it on, walk away and voila! Pour Over can result in more rich and complex flavours, but will take more time.
