How to Use a Glass Coffee Maker
Coffee made in a glass coffee maker can be an incredibly indulgent start to your morning routine. Making your own cup of coffee with a glass coffee maker can also save you a lot of money compared to buying your daily cup of joe from a specialty shop. With a few simple steps, you will be able to make your own freshly-brewed coffee in a glass coffee maker.
What You Will Need:
- Ground Coffee
- A Glass Coffee Maker
- Filtered Water
- Measuring Spoon
- Clean Mug
Step by Step Guide:
- Fill the bottom of the glass coffee maker with water: Start by filling the bottom “chamber” of the glass coffee maker with fresh, filtered water. A full chamber of water is usually about 500ml of water, but check the instructions that came with your glass coffee maker for the exact amount.
- Place the filter in the top chamber: Place the filter that came with the coffee maker into the top chamber. Make sure the filter fits snugly, so the water doesn’t leak out.
- Measure out coffee grounds: Take your preferred coffee grounds and measure out two full tablespoons with the measuring spoon. Place the coffee grounds into the filter in the top chamber.
- Assemble the pot and place on the heat source: Carefully fit the top chamber into the bottom chamber. Make sure everything is aligned correctly. Place the entire glass coffee maker on a heating source.
- Watch for the coffee to finish brewing: If your heating source is a gas or electric cooktop, there will be a visible bubbling to indicate when the coffee is done. If you are using a stovetop espresso maker, the handle of the top chamber will be jiggling and releasing steam when the coffee is done. Once the coffee is done brewing, remove the glass coffee maker from the heat.
- Pour and enjoy: Place your favorite mug on the counter and carefully pour the coffee into the mug. Enjoy your freshly made glass of coffee.
Making your own coffee with a glass coffee maker is simple and rewarding. You can choose any kind of beans and grind them to the coarseness that suits you. The resulting coffee is great tasting and much more affordable than buying a cup of specialty coffee. Now that you know how to use a glass coffee maker, you can start making your own cup of java so you can relax and sip your favorite brew.
