Coffee — Monday’s Motivation

Blog Post #324

It’s Monday and when do you need motivation more than Monday morning?

And the best motivation? A steaming mug of delicious cup of joe!

Make the perfect cup of coffee

I usually make my coffee in a French press — it’s easy and so good — strong and black. The best morning jolt! But lately I’ve been brewing my Monday motivation by the pour-over method. To be honest — this might just be my new preferred method. Try it out, taste for yourself.

To brew two big mugs, use 5 tablespoons of coffee and 16 ounces of water.

Total brew time: 3 to 5 minutes

  1. Boil the water in a kettle. Place a cone dripper lined with a paper filter, that has been rinsed with hot water, on a mug or a carafe.
  2. Grind the beans to medium coarseness. Place ground coffee in the dampened filter.
  3. Wait ten seconds for the water to settle after its boils, then slowly pour just enough hot water into the filter to saturate all the grounds.
  4. Wait for the coffee to “bloom” about 30 seconds.
  5. Pour more water to an inch above the grounds. Wait until the water trickles through the cone. Repeat until you have the desired amount of brewed coffee in your carafe.
  6. Savour the delicious drink!
