Instead of using an electric coffee maker, why not try using a coffee dripper to infuse your coffee? Coffee Drippers are a popular way to make a hot cup of coffee in a snap. All you have to do is ready your coffee beans, a fine grind is necessary to extract the proper amount, then place a filter in your dripper and measure a scoop or two of grounds into it, the whole thing goes on top of a carafe, hottle or just a mug if you have a dripper for single use. Once it’s set up, slowly pour hot water over the grounds, it should be about 200 degrees Fahrenheit. The coffee will drip down into the receptacle you placed underneath. The coffee you will make with this method is absolutely delicious. The flavor is much smoother and your cup will be less acidic than if your coffee is brewed with an electric brewer or percolator.
Using a coffee dripper in your café is a great way to interact with customers, it’s fun to watch and you can even set up a bar for just coffee drippers, also known as a pour over bar. Drip coffee is also the best way to make cold brew coffee; it is much stronger so the addition of ice will not water it down to nothing, and you can use cold water to brew with a pour over coffee dripper, which simply isn’t an option with electric brewers. Pour overs are the ultimate in customer service, bring the coffee dripper to your coffee shop and show everyone just how fresh and delicious your coffee can be.
