Ever woken up to a broken coffee maker or espresso and yet still badly in need of coffee to start your morning? Well if you have, you did agree it first gets you pissed and then gets you into the confusion state on what to do. Most of the times we do relay on specific appliance for the doing of only one job, while it could also be used for other purposes. The making of coffee is limited to having a coffee marker, a French press, espresso or getting an instant coffee in the sachet. However, what happens when you have a broken coffee maker machine and have also run out of instant coffees, what then do you do? Well there is a solution to that, but you will need to know how to make coffee in a microwave to achieve that solution.
The using of a microwave to achieve the making of a coffee, although wired or seem impossible can be really done. Here are a step by step procedure in helping you make that coffee with your microwave.
Step-1 : If you are going to make a coffee in a microwave, then you have got to also know how to boil water without a stove and this is the first thing to do. You simply fill your coffee mug with clean fresh water or in any microwave-container that can hold the amount of water you did need to make the coffee. You place it in the microwave and then set it to boil or just warm it depending on your microwave settings.
Step-2 : Get a coffee paper filter or a cheesecloth, and simply input in it 2 tablespoon of ground coffee beans. The amount of coffee beans would be higher depending on how strong or light you did want your coffee.
Step-3 : Once your coffee beans have been place in a filter or cheesecloth, you fold it in half and turn it and fold it again in half. The folding can be done any how you seem fit but basically must be folded well, so not to allow the falling out of the coffee beans and should be folded in a ball like shape.
Step-4 : At this stage, you did want something to hold your folded filter so as to easily dip it in to your hot cup of water. Now there are 2 ways to do that. The first would be making use of a fork. What you do here is to flatten the folded top of your coffee filter and slowly but gently force it between the tines of the fork, well enough to hold the whole folded filter with the coffee in it. The other way of doing this involves the use of a paper clip. With a paper clip, once you have folded your coffee beans with a filter you hold it like an envelope and clip it’s ends, so as to hold the open ends of the filter.
Step-5 : As soon as step 4 is complete, you get your hot cup of warm or boiling water from the microwave and with the help of your fork or paper clip you steep the coffee beans in the filter in to the warm water for some few minutes while pressing it against the side of the coffee mug or cup to help squeeze the coffee.
Step-6 : Once your coffee grounds have dissolved and you have your dark coffee look, you can then add your milk or creamer and sugar and enjoy your coffee.
The use of a microwave in the making of a coffee does indeed help in the kitchen when your coffee machine is down and you badly need that cup of coffee.
