There are many different ways to brew your favorite coffee. The two pictured here are French Press and Chemex, respectively. These methods will give you two totally different cups of coffee.
The French Press will give you what some people like to call a "dirty cup" of coffee. This is a rich cup with a lot of body no matter what coffee you choose to use. This process will take about 4 minutes after you get your water hot.
You will notice the natural coffee oils floating on top once you pour a cup. If you pour it into a clear glass or mug it will look cloudy or "dirty". A thing to remember is to not drink the last little sip of coffee or you will get a mouth full of sediment. Not a pleasant surprise if you aren't expecting it.
The Chemex will give a very crisp and "clean cup" of coffee. This method will bring out the brightness of the coffee. This process will also take around 4 minutes after you get your water hot, or maybe a little longer depending on your taste.
In contrast to the french press you will not see any oils floating on top if you use the Chemex. If you pour it into a clear glass or mug you will be able to see though it like a strong cup of tea. There is no danger of getting a mouth full of sediment unless your filter fails for some reason.
Choosing a brewing method really comes down to preference or personal taste. I have improvised my brewed coffee using a paper towel and a kitchen funnel before. If you really want coffee you will find a way to brew it.
I will post other methods of brewing in later blogs. In the meantime step out of your every day routine and try another brewing method at your local coffee shop or at a friend's house.
