The Secret to Drip Coffee

Sonya Kotler and Amanda Skinner

There are many ways to brew a wonderful cup of coffee, but most of them are overshadowed by, the bit overrated, if you ask me, espresso. After way too much time and money spent running to coffee shops, whenever I needed a little help staying awake, I finally realized that a decent cup of coffee did not require so much money and, in fact, could be made at my own house within five minutes. I have recently become a huge fan of drip coffee. This method is great not only because I can easily make coffee, even as the barely-functioning human I am in the mornings, but also because it brings out the favor of the coffee beans — allowing even a latte lover like myself to drink it without milk, and have it still taste amazing.

  1. Place coffee grounds in the filter and pour hot water until they are completely covered.
  2. Let “bloom” for about 30 seconds (small bubbles should appear on the top).
  3. Pour in the rest of the water onto the edges of the filter, making sure that all grounds are on the side of the filter.
