Why you need freshly roasted coffee beans?
The main ingredient is coffee beans. Just think you have a month old damp coffee beans that are not properly roasted and not preserved well, and now you are trying to make coffee with it. It will be a full waste of time and effort.
So, we need freshly roasted coffee that is well preserved. The perfect coffee comes from the roasted beans from the last two weeks. It has the aroma and taste that will amaze you. After proper roasting, use an air-tight jar to preserve it. It will give the same taste for long.

You can roast and preserve your beans, if not; get the best brands from the nearest shop. Wherever you are, at the home, office, traveling, or camping you will get your perfect cup of coffee.
You need a Coffee Grinder

Tea and coffee are the most renowned beverage for people. In both Western and European countries. But in 1789, the first Coffee grinder was patented by Richard Dearman. He was the man who understood the necessity of a coffee grinder for proper taste. Then gradually people started to use it.
A common grinder or a burr grinder will make the perfect coffee for you, so why not pack yours? Only a few bucks will do the job.
You need Boiled Water
The most common ingredient you will need is a mug of boiled water. Just keep in mind, you need to boil the water between 195 and 205°F that will produce the best coffee for you. For the best taste and aroma, you will need the proper preparation.
But how you will know, the perfect temperature is there? Using a thermometer? Is not that funny?
Just boil the water and keep it boiling for 30 seconds, it will do the trick as well. You can use any kind of pot but a kettle with handle will be the perfect match.
Brew Coffee without a Coffee Maker
Brewing coffee without a coffee maker is not that much tough. You will just need to know the conceptual thing on how to do it. If you come up with a filter than you can do it with a Pour-Over. But, if you are lacking a filter then a French press will do the rest. Come on, let me show you the methods.
Brew coffee with Pour-Over
When you are up to making coffee with a pour-over then place the filter on the coffee cup and ensure its properly cleaned and easy to carry. You can use paper filters, as those are cheap and then follow the steps:
- Clean the filter with hot water
- Bring one spoon coffee for each cup of coffee
- Grind then well, the powder will be like sands
- Wet the powder for 30 second
- Then pour the rest of the water for 30 second
- Using the rest of the water in 3-4 installments gradually
You will get the perfect coffee but on-test you can check the flavor. If it tastes bitter, then add more coffee, and if it’s sour, then give less coffee.
Brewing with French Press
When you are lacking a filter, nothing to worry you can use your french press to make it easier.
- Take one spoon of coffee for each cup of coffee you need
- Grind coffee and they will become like sea salts
- Wet them for 30 seconds
- Put the rest of the water
- Keep it as it is for 4 minutes
- Coffee is ready
You need to pour the coffee slowly and drink the coffee. Leave the grounds as it is. Keeping the rest as it is the trick.
From now on you will not need to worry about coffee brewing. You know the tricks and can get the best. Enjoy the taste of coffee and start your day with good spirits.
