Stovetop Coffee: Three Methods

Knowing how to make coffee on a stove can be useful in a number of situations, including when there is no electricity, when your coffeemaker breaks, or when you simply want to try something different.

  1. 1

    Bring water to a boil. A tea kettle or similar small pot will do. For every cup of coffee you want, add a cup and a half or so of water.

    • Get the water to a gentle boil, where it is bubbling regularly but not wildly.

    2

    For every 8 ounces of water, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of ground coffee, to taste. of water Give it a quick stir to get the coffee grounds moving around.

    • Grind your coffee as you normally would for a drip machine.
    • To start, use 2 tablespoons per cup. Coffee that is too strong can be diluted, but coffee that is too weak can't be made stronger.
    • The coffee can be instant if that's what you prefer. Instead, follow the package directions and use 1–2 teaspoons per cup.

    Take the pot off the heat and cover the contents. Indulge a two-minute pause.

    • For some, a quick re-boiling is preferred. [1] or for as long as two minutes [2] Bitterness will increase, so be sure you enjoy strong coffee before making this choice.
  4. 4

    After two or three minutes, stir the coffee and return the lid. The coffee grounds can settle to the bottom of the pot while they steep in the water (more time means stronger coffee).

    • The grounds may be more easily settled at the bottom of the pot if some cold water is added at the very end. You only need a few drops for a cup of coffee, so just flick them off your wet fingers.
  5. 5

    Carefully transfer the coffee to the mugs. Aside from the fact that the coffee is still very hot, you should pour slowly so as to preserve as much of the grounds (which have turned into a brown sludge) as possible in the brew. Keep the leftover coffee in the pot to prevent the sediment from escaping.

    • Use a tea strainer or other filter on top of your mug to catch even more of the sludge and rogue grounds. [3]

    It's important to know how a moka pot operates. It's a three-part metal container designed in Italy for easy disassembly and uses steam pressure to brew coffee. If you need a good diagram and a detailed explanation of how a moka pot works, look no further than Step 1!
    • One holds water, another holds the coffee grounds, and the third holds the brewed beverage.
    • The water goes in the lower chamber. In most cases, it also includes a pressure valve.
    • Coffee grounds that are particularly fine should go into the middle chamber. Keep the load light
    • Espresso or coffee that has been brewed is collected in the top chamber.

    2

    Prepare the bottom moka pot chamber by heating water in a separate kettle or pot. Take the water off the heat when it reaches a rolling boil. Though optional, doing so is highly advised in order to avoid burning the coffee or giving it a metallic flavor from the moka pot's metal.

  3. WH_logo.svg

    3

    Pour the water into the moka pot until the water almost reaches the ring that seals the valve. Inside the chamber, there might be a guiding line. A filter basket should be inserted.

  4. WH_logo.svg

    4

    Put the coffee in the basket, and use your fingers to even it out. Make sure the top of the filter basket is clear of any stray coffee grounds that could prevent a tight seal.

    • Prepare coffee for a drip machine with a standard grind, about the size of table salt.
  5. WH_logo.svg

    5

    Join the moka pot's top and bottom with screws. Ensure a tight seal, but not so much that it becomes impossible to open again.

    • Make sure the coffee grounds don't get into the water or the top chamber. For the time being, separate them.
  6. WH_logo.svg

    6

    Make sure the moka pot is open at the top when you put it on the stove over low to medium heat. The coffee will start to percolate into the upper chamber once steam has formed. Whenever steam is released, you'll hear a puffing noise.

    • A dark brown stream of coffee that gradually turns lighter will emerge. Don't take the pot off the heat until the liquid has the color of honey.
    • Keep in mind that scorching the coffee will not only ruin its flavor but also the pot.
  7. 7

    Use a cold dish towel or run the pot under cold water to stop the cooking process. Yet again, this is optional, but it is suggested to avoid giving the coffee a metallic flavor.

    When you're done brewing, transfer the beverage to cups or a carafe. This semi-espresso can be diluted with water if it's too strong for your taste.

  1. 1

    Obtain the necessary resources Forget about using a regular coffee pot and drip coffee grind with this technique.

    • A small metal pot (typically made of brass) that is thinner at the neck than the base and usually has a long handle is called an ibrik (also called a cezve, briki, mbiki, or toorka).
    • Of course, you'll also need water and sugar (or, less typically, a sugar substitute).
    • To make coffee in this fashion, you'll need Turkish grind, the finest coffee grind available. You might be able to find this grind at specialty food stores, coffee roasteries, Middle Eastern markets, and even some larger-scale supermarkets.
    • Also, many of the coffee grinders you'll find in the grocery store's coffee section feature a Turkish grind adjustment. [4] To get the best results from home-ground beans, use the finest possible grind.

    2

    Sweeten the ibrik with sugar. It's not necessary, but it's customary Sprinkle on to taste, but 2 teaspoons for an 8-ounce ibrik is a good starting point.

    • Sugar can be replaced with an artificial sweetener (like aspartame), if desired.
  3. WH_logo.svg

    3

    Bring water to the brim of the ibrik until it reaches the nape of your neck. If you don't want a huge mess on your stove, don't fill it all the way to the top; leave some room in the neck for frothing.

    • The smaller the ibrik, the less coffee can be brewed at once. Brewing success requires filling to the lower neck. The average small ibrik weighs 8 ounces, which is sufficient for two 3-ounce servings. cup and saucer sets

    Coffee should be poured into water, but the mixture should not be stirred just yet. You should let the coffee grounds float on the water.

    • In order to facilitate the frothing process, these floating grounds act as a barrier between the water and the air.
    • One or two level teaspoons of coffee per demitasse, or three level teaspoons (or one level tablespoon) per 8 oz. cup, depending on your preferred strength. ibrik
  5. WH_logo.svg

    5

    Turn on the stove and heat the ibrik. While low heat is preferred by some, medium or high temperatures can achieve the same results. You just need to keep a closer eye on things to make sure nothing explodes.

    • Eventually, the coffee will foam. When something foams, it's not boiling. [5] Do not let it come to a boil, and especially do not let it boil over unless you enjoy scrubbing a scorched stovetop with vigor.
  6. WH_logo.svg

    6

    As soon as the foam reaches the top of the ibrik, take it off the heat. After it has settled again, you can stir it.

    • Up to three more rounds of this procedure are usually performed. Reheat the ibrik until the mixture froths to the top of the neck, remove it from the heat, and stir.
  7. WH_logo.svg

    7

    Coffee should be served in demitasse cups. In order to let the grounds settle, you should wait 1-2 minutes before drinking.

    • Leave the last bit of coffee in the ibrik when pouring to catch the "sludge." And remember to always drink to the last drop.
    • Traditionally, a glass of water is offered alongside a cup of Turkish coffee as a palate cleanser.
