- Okay. In order to get delicious coffee at the output, you definitely need some kind of auxiliary equipment. What kind of equipment is this and where can I find it?
- Alternative brewing is black coffee, which is brewed by hand.
All you need to make it is your hands, water, a kettle with a temperature setting or special thermometer, a coffee grinder, and coffee.
Espresso equipment is often expensive, so for convenience and less expense, people brew an alternative for themselves.
It will be similar to tea, a compote, in terms of tactile sensation. There will be more caffeine because the duration of contact between coffee and water is longer than when making espresso. This method reveals the flavors and aromas of coffee better than others.
The most important equipment for the alternative is a coffee grinder and a scale. Usually in a coffee shop, when buying beans, you can ask for coffee to be ground specifically for alternative brewing.
If possible, it is better not to do this, as the coffee loses its flavor and aroma after a while.
Expensive equipment can be replaced, it all depends on your imagination. There is even a championship, where one comes up with his own device from what is at home. He prepares a presentation and performs with his idea.
