How to brew coffee in a cup to make it delicious:

  1. The proportions of coffee and water. First, take medium-ground coffee as coarse grinds are for the coffee machine and fine grinds are for the Turkish coffee pot. For a mild drink, respectively, 1 gram of coffee needs 20 grams of water, and for a strong flavor, 15 grams.
  2. The shape of the cup. It is important for making a delicious drink. Choose a medium-sized cup so that the water does not cool down quickly.
  3. The water temperature should be hot but not boiling, around 95 degrees.
  4. Brewing time depends on the shape of the cup. In a wide and low cup, coffee will brew faster than in a narrow and tall cup. It usually takes 2-4 minutes.
  5. Steeping coffee. Allow the drink to stand some time to fully develop its aroma and flavor.
  6. Adding cream and sugar. It is better to add these ingredients after brewing coffee to make the drink even more delicious.
