covfefe makers

Post by tr0g » 29 Aug 2017, 23:21

So, as I figured out due to having no power due to the hurricane this morning, I have no way to make coffee that does not depend on electricity. So I'm shopping manual coffee makers. So far top contenders seem to be the Bodum and the Aeropress. I'm open to suggestions from any of the rest of the caffeine junkies.

We're big pour over fans. So easy I even make coffee when I'm alone.

My electric coffeemaker is a small-sized but otherwise ordinary Mr. Coffee -- heats up water in the water compartment, then pipes it up and drips it into the compartment holding a paper coffee filter filled with ground coffee, then the hot water filters through that, and emerges as coffee in the carafe below.

But I wonder -- given that the link mentioned a coffeemaker where you simply pour water over the coffee, and assuming your electric coffeemaker is something similar to mine-- would it be possible to make a non-electric cold-drip coffee with such a machine, by measuring and pouring out the water yourself?

Do you have a way of boiling water without electricity?

My electric coffee maker is a Keurig, so not really possible. I used to have a small electric Cusianart similar to what you describe as my emergency backup coffee maker but it died or it's in storage. Can't remember which.

As far as water boiling, it's a tea kettle on a propane or butane burner.

It's still possible to cut open a keurig cup and pour hot water over the coffee inside. I don't know if there is some filter inside, but you could use it or don't, however you wanted.

There's no good way to hold the pod in the machine and pour water through it because of how Keurigs load. Several companies make a manual Keurig brewer, but it seems insanely large for what it does and useful for nothing else.

Also, I've been researching and holy hell coffee goes down a rabbit hole of insufferable wankery real fast.

I'm french press all the way but I also like the "body" that minute particles of coffee flour give the cupa.
YMMV.
