Handmade indulgence

A machine for coffee pads? A classier version in which capsules are inserted? A conventional coffee machine that pours gushes of hot water onto the coffee filter? Or even a coffee machine that grinds beans at the push of a button and automatically infuses them with water? A wide variety of machines are touted on the market, using various techniques and equipment to prepare the perfect coffee. Our hot tip: Get yourself a hand filter and you too can be a barista!

All you need to make an aromatic and full-bodied coffee yourself is:

a porcelain hand filter that stores the temperature of the water, a kettle with a temperature display, a coffee grinder so that the beans are freshly ground, and of course fresh, oxygenated water.

Well-known baristas recommend a quantity of 6 to 6.5 milligrams of ground coffee per 100 millilitres of water. The water itself is supposed to be hot when brewing, but not boiling. This is because too many bitter substances are released into the coffee powder if the water is boiling. Coffee experts say that the coffee aroma can best develop at a temperature of 85 to 95 degrees Celsius. The beans should always be stored in a cool, dry and dark place – but please do not refrigerate. Refrigerators are not suitable as a storage location because of their high humidity. Coffee according to the old brewing tradition: in a few simple steps you've conjured up a heavenly aromatic hot drink!
