How Different Types Of Brewing Equipment Can Improve Your Coffee Brewing Game

If you're looking for an extra edge in making your favorite hot drink, getting the right equipment might be the answer. Here are some different types of coffee equipment and tips on how they can improve the way you brew.

The Pour Over Method

This simple method involves placing a cone filter in a dripper and pouring hot water over the ground beans using a gooseneck kettle or other long-spouted pot. You'll want to start with cold water that's been filtered through a silver carbon filter . The flavor will be highly pure since there isn't any paper involved in this brewing method, which allows the coffee oils to pass through directly into the cup. This method also allows you to appreciate each of the subtle flavors of your chosen beans, since there are no paper filters that will affect the taste of your end product.

How to use it:  The pour over method is great for beginners looking for a simple way to make their favorite cup of joe without any fancy equipment. All you need is a kettle with a long spout , some ground coffee, hot water and a gooseneck pouring kettle . You can control how fast or slow your pour is by using one hand to help guide the stream while keeping your other hand free with which you hold onto your mug. If you're just getting, try taking notes on how certain ratios of water to coffee can affect the end result.


This is a versatile gadget that allows you to make espresso-style shot drinks at home, or simply brew a regular cup of joe with your favorite ground beans. Need to fix an early morning problem? The Aeropress also makes a mean cup of coffee in just one minute. The device itself looks like something you'd find on the set of 2001: A Space Odyssey , but it's actually quite easy to use. All you have to do is place your filter inside, add some filtered water and gently push down on the plunger while keeping everything level so no liquid seeps out the sides. This all happens within seconds, letting you make delicious drinks from the comfort of your own home.

How to use it:  All you need to make a cup with this method is an Aeropress , some water, your favorite ground coffee and a mug. For espresso-style drinks, you'll want to place paper filters inside the filter before adding in coffee grounds and water . The device allows you control over how fine or coarse the coffee grinds are since this will affect how much time it takes for your drink to drip through into your cup. Here's a video that walks through the process involved with using an Aeropress.

To conclude, the Aerobie Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker is the best thing in the world for making fresh coffee. It's easy to use, delivers rich flavor with lower acidity, gives you complete control over brew strength, and cleans up quickly.

The AeroPress Coffee Maker is an easier way to make coffee than most other methods out there. Why? Because it's basically a giant syringe with a little stopper on the end to stop anything from coming out of it unless you press down on this plunger right here which will force whatever you put inside to come out.


Another pour over-style option for making great cups of coffee at home is the Chemex . It uses a thick paper filter instead of traditional ones that are made to last just one cup. It's a bit more complicated than the Aeropress since you have to use your own pitcher to both heat up water and pour over the ground beans. However, you can set-and-forget it so once you've got everything prepped, all you have to do is come back in 30 minutes or so when your morning joe is ready.

How to use it:  To make coffee in this apparatus, simply place a Chemex filter in your brewer along with some hot water in order to soak them both before adding in your grounds . Then add in hot water until it covers the entire surface area of your grinds before gently stirring them into the mix. Once this is complete, place a decanter on top of the brewer with your Chemex filter inside and let it sit for about 30 seconds to one minute. When you remove the pitcher from the device, you'll see that all of the ground coffee has sunken to the bottom.

To conclude about the Chemex, it comes in three parts in total: a top chamber which holds the water and where all the magic happens, a little detachable strainer thing, and the bottom chamber where all the liquid comes out. You just put your ground coffee in this strainer which is attached to the top chamber then pour water over it for about 3-5 minutes depending on the size of the Chemex you have and how much coffee you’re looking to brew, obviously it’s dependant on the grams of coffee you’re using, too.

French Press

This method is similar to how tea is brewed by steeping coarsely crushed leaves in boiling water before straining everything out through a pressurized screen . You control exactly how much brew you get since it's done manually instead of using a machine or some other gadget. This also allows you to make different blends depending on whether you want a strong brew or more delicate flavor.

How to use it:  One of our favorite ways to make an amazing cup of coffee with this method is to combine hot water and coarsely ground beans before letting it sit for three minutes. After the time has passed, you slowly press down on your plunger (which traps all of the grinds at the bottom while letting your brew seep through into the carafe). There are tons of ways to experiment with creating different flavors using this device. If you want something stronger , let it steep longer; if you want a more mellow flavor, use less water or go easy on how much grounds you add to start.

To conclude about the French Press, it’s the original classic way of brewing. This has been used by Europeans for lots of years now. It can make lots of different kinds of coffees if you adjust the amount of coffee you brew with.

The French Press is incredibly simple to use, all you do is put the water in the chamber then pour it over into your brew that has previously been ground up with a certain consistency that you prefer depending on how strong or light you want your brew to be. Then after about 3-4 minutes press down on this plunger device right here which will trap all of those grounds at the bottom so none of them get into your drink.

Automatic Drip System

For those who like their morning joe fast, an automatic drip system can be a great way to get a quick caffeine fix with minimal effort involved. All you have to do is add some water into a reservoir that's already filled with filters, then you just have to push a button to start the procedure. This system heats your water up automatically before letting it trickle through freshly ground coffee for delicious and full-bodied drinks every time.

How to use it:  There are tons of ways you can create even more varieties using this method by changing the amount of water and how long you let the brewing process go on -- but we don't recommend doing so if you're trying to save time . When adding water, pour it into the large container that holds the reservoir instead of directly into your machine or carafe. If your drink tastes too strong , reduce how much water you put in at first; if you want more flavor , increase the amount of water until it tastes just right to your palate.

To conclude about the Automatic Drip System, it’s a pretty simple and fast way to make coffee without any hassle. You can adjust how strong or light you want your brew to be simply by adjusting the amount of water you pour in before letting the drip function do its thing.

Hario V60 Drip Decanter Dripper

The Hario V60 Drip Decanter Dripper makes one of the best cups of coffee that anyone has ever tasted . It's really simple too: you heat up some water inside this machine then let it drip slowly through a thin paper filter right onto your already ground coffee which are placed inside this cone-shaped thing here.

Once the coffee brews, you simply take out the filter and place it inside this container which we'll mention in a bit to catch any drips so that none of your precious coffee beans go to waste. Then all you do is enjoy these delicious flavors with whatever drink you desire like milk, cream or even sugar depending on what type of a coffee drinker you are.

How to use it:  This is one of those products that isn't too hard to figure out how to use, but we'll explain it anyway. There's a small amount of water already inside this machine so all you have to do is just put your cup underneath and turn on these switches right here to start the brewing process. You can adjust how fast the water pours out using this dial if you want less or more coffee.

All you have to do after that is take your cone-shaped filter and place it inside this container here which has some sort of a catch that will catch any drips so that none of your precious coffee beans go to waste. Then you can sip on your delicious tasting coffee and enjoy it with any drink or sugar of your choice depending on what type of a coffee drinker you are.

Percolator Coffee Maker

For those who like their morning joe old school, the percolator is one of the best ways to get great-tasting coffee every time. This way of brewing is basically an electric pot with a long tube at its base which you place over your stovetop burner so it can heat up the water inside this chamber to boiling point, the steam creates pressure the pushes hot water upwards where it mixes together with more water before dripping back down into the lower part of the pot.

How to use it:  All you have to do is plug the machine in and wait for your water to heat up inside this chamber, then you can add some coffee grounds right into this basket at the top and place a filter on the bottom. From there, all you have to do is put your cup underneath and push this button to start the water flowing down into this lower compartment and mixing with your coffee grounds before dripping through into that waiting mug.

To conclude about the Percolator Coffee Maker, it’s a pretty simple and fun way to brew coffee. It has the advantage of time because you can set everything up before hand then just wait for your cup to fill itself in about 5 minutes or so (depending on how much water is inside the machine). After the coffee is done, it's important that you don't leave any coffee inside the machine to avoid corrosion.
