How to Use a Glass Coffee Pot
A glass coffee pot is a timeless tool for brewing a perfect cup of coffee. Here is a simple guide to help you get started with your own glass coffee pot.
- Glass coffee pot
- Paper filter
- Ground coffee beans
- Kettle or other water source
- Optional: Creamer, sugar, and other desired additives
- Rinse the glass coffee pot with warm water, then place the paper filter in the top of the pot.
- Measure out the desired amount of ground coffee beans into the paper filter. A general rule of thumb is 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per 6 ounces of water.
- Bring a kettle or other water source to a boil, then turn off the heat.
- Slowly pour the hot water into the paper filter, filling the pot about half way.
- Wait a few minutes for the coffee to steep, then add the rest of the hot water.
- Place the glass coffee pot on the stove, the heat should be set to Low or Warm.
- Once the coffee begins to brew and rise, wait for it to begin trickling out of the filter and into the pot. When the trickling stops, turn the heat off.
- Do not let the coffee boil! Boiling will result in a burnt taste, and ruin the flavor of your brew.
- Wait for the pot to cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
- Pour desired amount of coffee into mug(s).
- Add desired creamers and/or sweeteners, being careful not to let the coffee cool too much.
- Enjoy your perfect cup of coffee made with the perfect tool, your glass coffee pot.
