How To Boil Coffee Beans?

If you purchased whole coffee beans in error, you are not required to grind them without a grinder. It is possible to make coffee from whole beans. Perhaps brewing them whole is preferable. The heat generated during grinding can degrade the flavor of coffee through oxidation or the grinder can create particles of varying sizes that extract at varying rates.

Until today, I assumed that we always grind coffee because whole beans do not extract enough flavor from water, or that brewing a cup of coffee with whole beans would take an entire day.

All you need to make whole bean coffee is. . .

  1. Boiling water
  2. Small saucepan
  3. 1-pint mason jar
  4. Spoon
  5. Mug
  6. Strainer
  7. Whole bean coffee
  • Measuring your beans is the first step.
    I filled my mason jar to three-quarters with coffee beans.

  • Step 2. Half-filled your jar with hot, just-off-the-boil water.

  • Step 3: Place the jar in a saucepan of simmering water, add until the water level in the saucepan matches the level in the mason jar.

  • Step 4: Simmer for an hour, stirring the beans occasionally. Approximately at the half-hour mark, you can see that the water is beginning to take on the appearance of coffee at the surface.

  • Strain and savor, set up a coffee mug with a strainer after one hour to strain the beans.

    Enjoy your coffee!
