    How to Make Coffee Without a Coffee Maker

    How to Make Coffee Without a Coffee Maker

    by Alex Brecher February 24, 2023

    Do you want coffee but do not have a coffee maker and do not want to choose instant coffee? You are in luck! It is possible to make coffee without a coffee maker, and when you use Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Fresh Ground Coffee, you can have great-tasting coffee that is gentle on the stomach. Here is how to make coffee without a coffee maker.

    How to Make Coffee Beverages Without a Coffee Maker

    The basic strategy for making coffee without a coffee maker is to let coffee steep briefly in near-boiling water, and then strain it right into the mug. If you have no way to strain your coffee, you can alternatively put a bit of cold water in the hot mixture to try to separate out the brewed coffee from the grinds. 

    This recipe makes one cup of coffee, but you can double the recipe to make enough for a large coffee beverage, or quadruple the recipe to have enough to share with others. You can use your hot coffee however you would normally use coffee, whether you like it black or with cream or sugar, or whether you want to make iced coffee or something like a latte.

    You can alternatively make cold brew coffee without a coffee maker. The drawback is that it takes longer - several hours or overnight - and then you either have cold coffee or you need to heat the coffee when you are ready to serve it. This recipe yields hot coffee in minutes.

    Best Coffee without a Coffee Maker

    When making coffee without a coffee maker, you want to have the best-tasting, freshest possible coffee. You also need it to be ground nicely to make the ideal cup.

    Fresh Ground Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee comes in a medium dark French Roast. It has a chocolatey flavor with notes of citrus, hazelnut, and vanilla. It is gentle on the stomach, and lends itself perfectly to brewing with or without a coffee maker.

    Recipe for Making Coffee Without a Coffee Maker

    Makes 1 small cup

    Ingredients:

    Directions:

    1. Place the ground coffee and salt in a small pot or jar. You can also strain it directly into a coffee mug if you prefer.
    2. When the water is boiling, add a small amount to just barely get all of the coffee grounds wet. Let it sit for 30 to 40 seconds. 
    3. Add the rest of the water to the coffee grinds, and stir.
    4. Let the coffee brew for 4 minutes. 
    5. Use a strainer, cheesecloth, or clean towel to strain the grounds from the water which is now coffee. Let the coffee go directly into the mug that you will be using to serve.
    6. You can drink the coffee immediately or add your other ingredients to taste at this point. Then serve your coffee and enjoy!
