The coffee can be any flavor or blend but the coffee beans needs to be ground at a slightly coarse medium setting. If its too fine, it'll go thru the metal filters in the french press. If its too coarse, the coffee won't brew properly and will be too weak.

There are several ways to make coffee, either using a coffee maker or a french press. There are also coffee makers that can make several cups at a time, or single cup coffee makers. Generally speaking, coffee in a coffee maker requires just a few simple steps. 1. Fill the tank with cold water. 2. Put a filter in 3. Put 2 tablespoons of ground coffee in for every ONE cup of coffee that you are making. 4. Turn the coffeemaker on. You're going to need to make sure that you buy good quality coffee beans. Do NOT buy coffee in tins, already ground. This is not good coffee. Buy only whole beans and grind them yourself. Another way to make coffee involves using a French press or coffee press. In this case you would boil water, put 2 tablespoons of coffee for every cup of water and then put the boiling water into the press with the coffee. Wait 4 minutes and then press the coffee & enjoy.

A compost is generally a great place to put the grinds from a coffee press! Other than that, the garbage is an option

It works like this: you put the coffee under the coffee machine and then press the botton then the coffee will come out. And so on so the coffee will come out.

While there are no records of the first person to put milk into coffee it was the French who started it.

Put the coffee grounds in, add the heated water, let the coffee grounds steep for a couple of minutes then slowly push the filter down, carefull not to mush the grounds in the bottom. And then pour and enjoy!.

Call it a French press, a Bodum or even the old fashioned Cafeolette. The right grind is very important. Forget the ground to powder stuff you put into your autodrip. The press needs medium coarse and it needs uniform size to work the way it was meant to. Do not use newly roasted coffee beans either. They must be at least 3 days old so you do not get the brown sludge floating on the top (it is called bloom and appears only when you press beans ground from coffee within 2 to 3 days from use.

Automatic coffee makers are very easy to use. You just put in the filter, add the coffee, and add water then press a button and wait for your coffee to finish.

To make espresso simply put the ground espresso in the french press. Add hot water and give it a little stir. After giving it a moment to steep, press the strainer down and pour into a cup.

54 grams of coarsely ground coffee (I use Kzata Blue currently) 4 cup French press 4 cups of water Put your coffee in the press and boil your water. Remove your water from the stove and take the Pot-to-Press, this is so the water has time to stop boiling and cool to the perfect temperature to steep the grounds and extract the perfect flavors. Stir gently and steep for 4 minutes with the lid on, but not pressed. When the time is up, slowly and evenly press the plunger down. Pour off the coffee, I serve Kzata with the barest hint of Heavy Cream, it's the smoothest, richest flavor with a perfect body that doesn't have a bitter finish. I normally drink my coffee black, but not Kzata, it deserves heavy cream (nothing else, not milk or half n' half) to bring out it's best qualities.

Have been looking for the answer for 40 years. I'm guessing at this point it must be a home brewer that retails in excess of $300.00, because I have tried them all under $300.00. Maybe it is just a price you must pay to get "coffee house" coffee at home. New Question Why do you want it to be the hottest? The SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association) recomends brewing at 200 degrees. I like to put my water in a tea kettle and use a french press, which is available at many local coffee houses.

For all of the coffee lovers out there, there are a lot of options when it comes to choosing the right coffee maker. There are many different kinds of coffee makers, designed for different needs. Some are simple, like the single-cup coffee maker, or some are much more complex, including timers, alarms, and automatic starters. For those who drink large quantities of coffee at a time, coffee makers and coffee pots come in different sizes to suit all of your coffee needs. Here we explore some of the options when it comes to coffee makers, helping you to decide which is right for you. Most people choose to go with a simple drip-style coffee maker. These kinds of coffee pots have a basket where the grounds go, as well as a place to put water. You can make as much or as little coffee as you want, adding more or less water to suit your needs. The coffee maker then heats up the water, drips it through the coffee grounds, and thus brews your pot. The coffee is ready in minutes. Drip-style coffee makers come in many different sizes, ranging from single-cup pots to ten cups or more. Some even include grinders, so you can purchase whole coffee beans and the machine will grind them for you. This helps keep the coffee tasting fresh. Others have timers, so you can set an alarm and the coffee will begin brewing for you at whatever time you choose. The coffee pot will stay hot for several hours until an automatic system shuts off the heating element. Another popular coffee maker is the french press. These are small, glass containers that allow for you to brew the purest, freshest pots of coffee. To use the french press, you first place the coffee grounds in the bottom of the container, then pour heated (not boiling) water into the press, and allow it to steep. Then you press down the filter attached to the lid, and your coffee is ready to be consumed. The grounds are separated with a filter so you do not consume them. This kind of coffee maker is extremely popular.

Sure wish I knew! I hope somebody answers. After scraping as much as you can into the trash, there are still a lot of grounds clinging to the vessel - too many to be wahing down the drain on a regular basis - unless you enjoy paying $150 for a plumber. sounds a little crazy, but I dump out what I can into the trash can, then put water into the French press, stir and pour down the toilet.

1. Fisrt you have to have the green apron. 2. Put it on. 3. press the d button on your computer.

What kind of coffee pot is it? If it is an automatic coffee maker, you can just pop in a filter and and put coffee ground in it, according to the directions. Afterwards, you just pour in the amount of water you like. Then click the on button, and you get a fresh cup of coffee afterwards. It depends on your coffee maker. For more information on coffee, you can check out:

Depends on what you top your toast with and what you put in your coffee. Additionally it will vary depending on the size of the french toast, but modest estimates with butter and syrup would put the French toast at around 620 kcal. The coffee itself without added cream or sugar would be roughly 5 - 10 kcal, but could easily be around 60 kcal with 1 tbs. creamer and 1 tsp of sugar.

Put water on the stove to heat. Grind whole coffee beans in $20 electric grinder (expensive burr grinder is completely unnecessary). I fill my grinder to maximum capacity, but my coffee professional friend uses twice (!) as much. My press is 32 oz (large, but not extra large). Pour ground coffee into press. Slightly before the water boils, pour it into the press, over the ground coffee. Make sure all the ground coffee gets wet. START YOUR TIMER! After exactly 60 seconds, stir the coffee/liquid sufficiently to fully break up the 'crust' which has formed on the top. [The purpose of this is to get the coffee grounds to sink to the bottom, thereby making it easier to 'press' the coffee.] After exactly 120 seconds more (total brewing time 180 seconds - NO MORE!) press the coffee (i.e., put the lid/sieve on the press, and press it slowly down as far as possible). Pour the coffee immediately. If you are not serving it at once, use a thermos. Explanation: you only need to 'brew' the coffee for 3 minutes (not 4), because all the coffee is 100% immersed in near-boiling water. Stirring is only necessary to make 'pressing' easier. Pouring off the coffee eliminates additional 'brewing,' which would only add negative extractions at a greater rate than positive extractions. Note: If the inevitable grounds in your press coffee annoy you, simply pour the coffee through a paper coffee filter. It will only take a few seconds to 'clean up' your coffee. I don't agree with you that (expensive burr grinder is completely unnecessary). we all know blade grinder does cut the bean into pieces with an ununiform size. Also, large heater during cutting can deteriorates the taste of coffee. While burr grinder grind the coffee to a fairly uniform size. expensive grinder always equipped with a high torque motor which let the grinding speed lower. that means less heat will be produced. less deteriorations to the coffee taste

This is individual, but it's best to put it after you pour coffee to the mug, but before you put whipped cream or sauce if you use them too.

When you put it in coffee it starts to turn a lighter brown and gets spots on the inside.

Simply put, it is where the coffee bean is grown and harvested.

If you were to put a fish in coffee then it would not be able to breath because of the lack of oxygen in the coffee. The gills of the fish would also brun off because of the heat of the coffee.
