How to Make Strong Coffee at Home
Brewing coffee at home can be an enjoyable way to start your day, but for those who prefer strong coffee, finding the right recipe can be tricky. Luckily, making strong coffee in your own home is possible with just a few steps.
What You’ll Need
- Freshly ground coffee beans
- Coffee filter and filter holder
- 1-2 tablespoons of coffee
- Measuring cup
- Boiled or filtered water
- A stove or hot plate
Step 1: Boil Water
Before anything else, fill a pot or kettle with the appropriate amount of filtered or boiled water. Place it over a stove or hot plate on medium-high heat. As it boils, you can prepare to make your coffee.
Step 2: Use the Right Amount of Coffee per Cup
The amount of ground coffee you will need for your cup of strong coffee depends on the strength you prefer; generally, one table spoon is enough to make one cup of coffee. Experiment to find the perfect amount for you.
Step 3: Place Filter
After measuring the desired amount of ground coffee, put it in the filter and place the filter in the filter holder.
Step 4: Pour Water
Once the water boils, pour it over the grounds in the filter holder. Pour it slowly, taking care not to overfill. It takes about 5 minutes for the water to drip through the filter.
Step 5: Enjoy Your Cup of Coffee
Once all the water has filtered through, remove the filter holder and discard the used grounds. Pour your cup of strong coffee, adding any desired cream or sugar. Enjoy!
