We know it's not rocket science, but you can prepare (or improve) a good cup of coffee with these tips.

If you feel lethargic or don't have much time to make coffee in the morning, you can use an automatic drip coffee maker. You do the job by placing the filter, coffee, and water and pressing a button. You can go to shower, and when you return, you will have freshly prepared coffee to accompany breakfast.

Making Coffee with a Regular Coffee Maker

About the filters.

There are different brands, each of which uses filters with different shapes.

These coffee makers have a resistance that heats the water, a filter holder for the paper filter, and a glass container or thermos to store the coffee.

As all coffees taste better just freshly prepared, it is better to store the coffee only for a short time. The best way to preserve coffee is in a well-insulated thermos.

To determine the ideal grind of your coffee, observe how thin your paper filters are or, with a plastic basket, how fine the filter mesh is. 

Remember, the filter plays a significant role in the result of your coffee.  

About the ground type.

More coarse coffee grinds will create coffee with a lighter body and more acidity in this coffee maker.

Finer coffee grinds will create coffee with a heavier body, more bitterness, and more caffeine.

We recommend these grinds:

  • Medium-Fine

  • Medium (similar to sugar)

  • Medium-Coarse

Now let's check the Coffee Ratio:

  • 15-20 grams/3 tbsp of medium ground coffee per cup.
  • 350ml/12oz water per cup.

*We recommend taking notes as you try new ways to prepare your coffee to find your perfect cup.


Since there are thousands of models and brands of coffee makers, we recommend following the manufacturer's directions, but try to stick to our coffee ratios, and you will see a big difference in your cup, A BALANCED CUP!

Here are some of them: Hamilton Beach, Keurig, and Cuisinart.

Pro Tip. Use a little hot water to pre-heat your cup (the one you are using to drink your coffee) while the brewing is in process. Discard the water after 1 minute. This will help to preserve the temperature of your freshly brewed coffee.

When your machine says the coffee is ready, you can turn the heat off or remove the carafe from the heater. We don't want to burn the coffee! 

That's it! Remember that recipes are not written in stone, and you can play with ratios; we recommend not going under 15 grams or over 30 grams to have a balanced coffee flavor in your cup.
