Different Coffee maker Different taste

Posted on 01/10/2021

There are so many ways coffee makers are designed not without reason. Each tool and method also produces a variety of different coffee brewing flavors. Nothing's wrong. In fact, each one is special. Provided, the brewing process still pays attention to the right aspects to produce the perfect brew. Because the perfection of a cup of coffee is a taste that is difficult to argue with.

Drip Machine

Brewing Time about 8 minutes

Many skilled coffeemakers use a variety of high-tech coffee machines so that the brewing becomes extraordinary. However, there are also simple or home drip machines or those commonly found in offices and other public spaces. Drip machines usually have settings that can be adjusted according to the taste of the coffee density.

The result: Average to a cup of coffee that doesn't disappoint. But also generally not a surprising result. While drip machines are commendable for being able to be set up to make a hot cup of coffee, the result of this method usually has a standard taste. Coffee is usually light and watery.

Moka Pot

Brewing Time  about 10 minutes

The Bialetti Moka Pot, this cool two-tiered hexagonal teapot uses a pressure extraction method, similar to espresso. This is the classic Italian method. Some tips from Italian coffee experts say, the bottom of the mocha pot that stores water should be a few degrees below the boiling temperature before placing it on the stove. As the water boils, the moisture will rise in the coffee grinder at the top. It is also recommended not to fill the top too tightly so that the coffee does not block the steam and result in too high a pressure. When the coffee starts to flow out, remove the mocha pot from the stove, try this method too: cover tightly, wrap the bottom with a cool, damp towel or run it under running water to stop the extraction process. This can be done to get a coffee that is not too bitter.

The result: The resulting coffee is generally very good: steamy, thick, dark brown in color with a strong, genuine aroma. A sip of this coffee brings a classic and thick taste, slightly bitter. Which is also advantageous, mocha pots tend to be easy to clean.

French Press

Brewing Time  about 5 minutes

French Press is quite popular and is used to make everyday coffee. Choose a coarse or coarse coffee grind or like coarse salt for brewing with a French Press. Steep for about 4 minutes. A tip says, when brewing, try twirling the ground coffee in the water to get a better taste than stirring it. After that just lower the plunger of the French Press to trap the coffee grounds at the bottom. Pour the coffee.

Result: In this method, there is a long duration of contact between ground coffee and water. Therefore, we can expect coffee brewed using the French Press method to have the strongest taste. Although not necessarily so. Depending on the grind of the coffee and the temperature of the water, French Press yields are generally quite strong. The oil residue from the coffee beans is still visible on the surface because there is no paper filter to absorb the residue. The taste of coffee is generally delicious, smooth, and not as bitter as the drip method.


Brewing time about 5 minutes

Quite a number of coffee connoisseurs are also fans of the pourover method, mainly because of its practicality. Although the disposable paper filter is quite worrying for the environment. Consider switching to a reusable filter. Some instructions say, when placing the filter paper in the pourover, pour boiling water over the paper to remove the paper taste. Add medium-fine ground coffee, which is equivalent to a grain of table salt. The first pour on a pourover is intended to 'grow' the coffee grinder or water it to bring out the flavors. You can stir the coffee at this stage. Then add water with a long, rotating pour. Followed by short pours until the container is full.

The result: This process tends to feel slow. But the result will be worth the effort. Pourover produces dark coffee, medium thickness, with a fairly rich taste. Oil residue is certainly not visible through using this method, because paper filters have helped absorb the residue.
