I've used the Mellita Coffee System for about 40 years. I find the system more convenient than coffee machines.
> If the power goes off, you can still make coffee if you have a gas stove or a camp stove.
> It is easy to brew exactly the amount of coffee you want, and exactly the strength that you want---including adjusting to new roast and grinds. You can even mix caffeinated and decaffeinated coffees if you wish.
> In a way, the Mellita system is more "sanitary". It is easy to forget a used filter in a coffee maker, maybe for weeks if you go on a vacation, and find a fungus garden in there. You can't ignore a used Melitta filter, because it is out in the open. If you forget a used Melitta filter, it and the coffee grinds just dry out. It is also much easier to wash the Melitta components---just a quick rinse under the tap is usually good enough. Caveat--some types of coffee are oiler than others---you may need to actually wash your cone and carafe if a quick rinse is not sufficient.
The carafes for which the "6 cup" and "10 cup" systems can nominally hold 6 or 10 cups off coffee (filled to the brim), but that is really irrelevant. A more important consideration is cups vs mugs. How many people still drink "cups" of coffee? So, it is the "mug-capacity" (1 mug = 1 1/2 cups) of the filters and cones which really counts.Read more ›
The short version is this:
1) Heat the water
2) Dose your coffee in the filter in the brew basket
The long version is this
1) Measure out your water
I use a cheap electric kettle and put only as much water in it as I intend to pour. This prevents any over-pouring. You can add 2-4 oz if you intend to do the pre-soaking (step #4)
2) Heat the water
It should be a little below boiling. I let my kettle heat to boiling, then immediately take it off the heating element and give it 10 secs or so to cool down and stop "gurgling" (boiling). It's important to preserve good heat, so don't lollygag with the next few steps or else you'll lose so much heat that the extraction doesn't work well. The heat matters because coffee is largely an oil, and as you know about water and oil, they don't mix. It is the heat that chemically effects the coffee grinds so they give off the maximum flavor. This is also why cold-brew systems take so long, not much heat. Of course, if there's too much heat you can scald the grinds and it will taste burnt.
3) Apply the filter
I do this while the water stops boiling. Also, This pour-over takes a #4 sized flat-bottom filter. These are easily found at the grocery store whether Melitta Brand or an off-brand.Read more ›
It may take a few minutes, but the boiling water is the key to the best brew, and the easily washable pieces insure no chemical build-up. C'est extraodinaire!
If you are a coffee afficianado, you will not regret this purchase, and the price is very affordable. Simplicity rules!
