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.
Tip: When using a blade grinder, pulse the blade and shake or tap the grinder to achieve a uniform 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.
Resist the temptation to sneak a cup before the coffee is finished brewing. The flavor won’t be balanced until the brewing cycle is complete.
Step 6: Serve
Serve the coffee immediately. Well-made coffee can be enjoyed black, with milk, or flavored with syrup or your favorite liqueur.
