A Pour Over Coffee Maker is a device that produces a cup of piping hot coffee in one simple, but effective action. The basic principle of how a pour over coffee maker works is based on the process of extracting coffee from hot water. In a traditional setup, the water is poured over the grounds in a standard drip brewing setup, and the results are achieved via a paper-like filter. However, modern technology has enabled this type of device to be built with a circular motion, which allows the grounds to be retrieved and drunk without having to use a filter.
Because a poured over coffee maker does not use a filter, there is no need to worry about getting the grounds contaminated. This is a great perk for anyone who values their individuality and enjoys the taste of a freshly brewed cup of coffee. Because of the simple pouring action of these devices, there is very little maintenance involved, making these devices easy to clean and maintain. These devices are generally very durable and can last for many years if they are properly taken care of.
One of the simplest ways to utilize a coffee maker with a pour over function is to simply place the hot water into the mug, fill with grounds, and put the lid on. If the pitcher is very tall, it may be necessary to use two cups. Once the water is at the proper temperature, it can be poured into the opening of the container. The container can then be poured into the filter to be used later. Depending on the type of filter that is being used, some may not be able to pour all of the water directly into the mug.
There is another unique way of using a coffee maker with a pour over function. Many companies make coffee machines that are designed to be used as an automatic drip brewing method. Simply add water into the machine, set the time and date you want your coffee, select which type of cup you want (electric, water, or tea) and click the button. Then all you have to do is press a button or turn a knob to set the time and date it brews. You could choose to have your coffee hot when you get up, or cold before you go to work. This is truly a unique way to enjoy your cup of coffee and still be able to keep track of the exact time it took to get your cup just right.
If you prefer to have the coffee fresh, rather than having it ground, there is a way to do this also. A coffeemaker with a built in grinder is available as an attachment to many models, allowing you to choose freshly ground beans for your cup of Joe. Or if you don't want the pre-ground coffee, or if you don't like the taste of pre-ground coffee, you can purchase ground coffee in convenient little packets at most supermarkets. These packets of coffee, which often contain just one or two tablespoons each of espresso, cappuccino, lattes and other favorites, are easy to make at home. Simply pour the coffee into the filter, add the coffee grounds, and put the packet into the appliance.
To make a latte, simply add hot water, espresso or hot chocolate, and coffee grinders into the pot. Turn the handle to allow the coffee grinders to come into contact with the liquid until it begins to grind into the drink. Stir until the espresso begins to taste delicious. Or, if you prefer, simply add the liquid and coffee to a mug, add a spoonful of cream and enjoy your cup of Joe. Or, brew a tea from loose leaves, such as chamomile or orange pekoe, or even just add hot milk to your favorite cup of java.
Good coffee comes in many varieties, but the best coffees come from freshly roasted green beans. Even though it is usually more expensive to roast coffee, good coffee from this type of bean is worth the extra cost. If you decide to use pre-roasted beans in your recipes, you will have to roast them yourself, which can take some time and effort, depending on the size of the beans. Fortunately, it is not hard to roast your own coffee since it does not require a special coffee bean grinder. Just roast your normal coffee beans in order to create a rich cup of Joe!
