The automatic drip coffee makers are affordable and simple to use. Quality of the brew depends on the ratio of coffee to water. The standard ratio is 10g of ground coffee for every 180ml of water.
Grind Coffee Beans
Grind 10g of coffee beans to a medium grind size, similar to regular sand, not too fine. If the filter is cone-shaped, grind beans on the medium-fine grind setting. Use a high-quality burr or flat grinder. Do not use a blade grinder (looks like a blender). Only grind coffee beans before brewing to retain most of their flavor and aroma.
Insert The Filter
Place a paper filter or a metal filter in the brew basket.
Fill the water reservoir with 180ml of water.
Add ground coffee to the filter, close lid, and start brewing by pressing the brew button. The brewing cycle completes when all the water in the reservoir flows through the coffee grounds into the carafe underneath.
