How To Make Coffee in An Electric Kettleadmin
Coffee is a mandatory item in every house and office nowadays. It is really hard to start the morning without a freshly brewed cup of coffee, isn’t it? There’s just something about that boost of caffeine that’s crucial for powering through the day.
There are many added benefits to a daily cup of coffee, not only does it make you feel more energized, burns far, and improves physical performance but it also reduces the risk of several conditions like cancer. The smell of coffee is what lures me in. While some of you have a coffee maker, with freshly ground, home-roasted beans every day, the rest of us wake up, stumble to our coffee machines, push the button, and silently beg it to brew faster. So what about the people who don’t have coffee machines at their house or offices? What if your machine breaks? The button doesn’t work? The water doesn’t heat up? When there is no power? Well, don’t you worry! This is why today we are going to talk about a different way of making coffee.
For a coffee lover and addict, an electric tea kettle is a must-have for you. So how can you
You can brew a cup of coffee whenever you want and easily with an electric tea kettle. All you need to do is measure the desired amount of water in a cup and add it to the kettle to boil. There are usually measurements written on the kettle and you can directly add water as well. Once you are done, click on the tab that’s usually in the front and a red light will turn on, confirming that the water is now boiling. Once the water is done, the light will go off. Then there are two ways, either you can simply add your coffee powder inside your kettle and let it mix then just pour it in your cup or add the boiling water on your coffee grounds in your cup. If you are adding water onto your coffee grounds, you need to measure the grounds first and let the water steep in. Then using a strainer, you can strain the coffee into your drinking mug. You can add cream and sugar as you like and enjoy your perfect cup of renewed coffee.
You can also use a filter. Heat the water using an electric tea kettle. Add as much water as needed to plug the kettle in then set the heat to medium or high and let it boil. Next place the ground into a coffee filter. What you want to do is scoop enough pre-ground coffee into the middle of a single coffee filter. Don’t forget to tie the filter into a bundle by using either string or twine so that the coffee grounds don’t slip into the liquid. If you think about it, you are really making a coffee tea bag. Innovative right? Also, make sure to leave enough string or thread hanging around outside the mud so you can pull it out when ready otherwise it will just turn way bitter. So once the water is boiled, just pour it over your coffee tea bag in a mug. This method is not applicable if you want to make a lot of coffee mugs as then it will be very time-consuming.
The second method produces a lesser strong coffee than the strainer method as the filter absorbs most of it. You also don’t want to add your bundle into the kettle directly as you want the bundle to steep into the water and do its best work. So you may want to use more amount of grounds than usual if you want the coffee to taste as strong. If you want a stronger coffee, then let it steep in for about 5-6 minutes, and for a weaker one, let it steep in for about 2-3 minutes. No stirring is required and you can add your milk, sugar, etc. once the steeping is done after removing the filter.
A pro tip: Give the bundle a slight squeeze with a spoon against the side of the cup to force out extra liquid. Since the liquid inside the bundle had prolonged contact with the grounds, it will make the coffee stronger if you squeeze it back into the mug.
