This simple, filter-free brewing method is done in about four minutes. Use a coarse grind to prevent bitterness—this also keeps the grounds from slipping through the fine mesh of the plunger.
Traditionally cooked on scorching hot sand in the Mediterranean, this version is designed for the stovetop. Slow heating is best; the coffee should foam, not boil.
Pour Over Mug
This portable brewer sits over your mug with a paper filter, allowing the coffee to slowly drip through.
Cold Brew Drip
Place medium-coarse grounds between two wet filters. Add water and ice to the top chamber and let gravity take care of the brew!
This iconic Italian stovetop pot uses boiling water to create pressurized steam that pushes the coffee through a filter into the top compartment.
With its elegant shape and patented brew process, the Chemex eliminates oils, sediment and bitterness.
So versatile for an array of preferences, the Aeropress allows you to change the steeping time, pressure or water temperature, or to steep your coffee upside down.
Though it takes 12 hours or more, this method results in cold-brew coffee with about 67% less acid.
