Ain't nobody got time for that...

Your home coffee maker can be you best friend in the whole wide world. It can have coffee ready for you when you wake up, and plenty of it. There's also no reason to feel any less fancy for using one, it is often more consistent than hand brewing and great machines are far far cheaper than they used to be. So brew with confidence!


Step One: Measure your beanzzz. I'll be repeating this one a lot but it's amazing what a little bit of measuring can do. Again, it doesn't always have to be precise to the last milligram, but even counting your scoops can make the big difference between "meh" and "hell yeh." A coffee to water ratio of 1:17 is a good place to start. So for every 1 gram of coffee you use, use 17 grams of water. 

Step One: Decide on a recipe. To brew 4 cups, you'll need 4 cups of water, or 945 grams. Divide 945 by 17 to find out how much coffee to use - in this case its 55g. 

Step Three: Grind it up. Use a medium course setting, on a scale of 1 to 10, around a 7 to 7.5. This part can be totally up to you too, experiment! The world is your oyster, if you like it better on a 6.75, do that! 

Step Four: Brew it up. This part is why you have one, boop and you're done.

Step Five: Drink up and live your dang life!
