How to Make Coffee Without a Coffee Machine

You don’t need to buy a coffee machine to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee. 5-Minute Crafts will show you 3 easy ways to do it.

1. Using a pan

You will need:

  • A saucepan
  • Medium-ground or fine-ground coffee
  • Some water
  • A small ladle

How to make it:

  1. Add as much water as you’d like to a saucepan (and a few extra tablespoons). Place a pan over medium heat and let the water boil.
  2. Add medium-ground or fine-ground coffee of your choice to the saucepan (2 tablespoons for every 6 ounces, or 180 ml of water).
  3. After you put the coffee in water, turn the heat off. The idea is not to boil the coffee grounds but to brew them. Cover the saucepan with a lid and wait for 5 minutes.
  4. With the help of a small ladle, pour the coffee into a cup, and enjoy.

2. Using a coffee filter

You will need:

  • A tall glass
  • Medium-ground or fine-ground coffee
  • A paper coffee filter
  • A rubber band

How to make it:

  1. Take the paper coffee filter and open it. Place it into a tall glass. Fold the filter around the edges of the glass. Wrap it with a rubber band to secure the filter.
  2. Prepare some coffee using a pan, as was described earlier. With small gentle pulses, pour the coffee into the filter.
  3. Let the water get through the filter. Enjoy your coffee.

3. Using a Turkish coffee pot

You will need:

  • Cold water — 5-6 ounces
  • Extra finely-ground coffee — 2 heaping tablespoons
  • Sugar (optional) — 1-3 heaping teaspoons
  • A Turkish coffee pot

How to make it:

  1. Fill the Turkish coffee pot with water. Add coffee and sugar to it. Mix well.
  2. Place the pot over medium heat. Wait for the coffee to foam up and rise. Don’t let it boil.
  3. Just before the water starts boiling, take the pot off the heat.
  4. Slowly pour the coffee into the cups and let it settle for a few minutes. Enjoy.
