We all love coffee, and office coffee shouldn’t be a punishment. Here we share some tips on how to prepare office coffee in your workplace better. Often, the “secretarial” coffee makers or percolators are used to make about 100 cups or 50 cups of coffee at the same time, but how to make a good coffee in the office?
For this type of coffee maker, several tips can help you make the coffee taste as rich as if you prepared it in a professional cup-by-cup machine.
First of all, the coffee maker must be clean and dry without water or coffee residues. Also, make sure the filter is free of coffee residue. Use a medium grind for this type of coffee maker and drop it evenly into the filter. The amount of coffee depends on how many cups you will prepare and the size of your secretarial coffee maker. But use what you would always use as a measure per cup for the simple coffee maker you handle.
Use carafe water at the same time for your coffee, preferably without sodium, and this will taste better and will be more gentle with your coffee maker to take care of it in the long term. After the water, put the tube where the hot water will rise to “wet” the coffee and then put the filter on top of it, followed by the lid. If you put cold water, the process will take longer and make the coffee stay in contact with the water for longer and release more caffeine; try to use water at room temperature.
Turn on the secretarial coffee maker and let it do its process, this may take about half an hour, but it depends on its size.
Once the coffee is ready, disconnect the coffee maker from the light; if you don’t, then preferably the filter and the tube should be removed since if the coffee maker is turned on and reheats the water, it will wet coffee again. It will release more caffeine, and no one will sleep that day. Waters! Be careful with your hands; the filter will be very hot; stir carefully.
It is best to invest in thermal jugs like restaurant ones, so as soon as the office coffee is ready, they would empty it into these thermal jugs, and the heat would be maintained, but the coffee would not continue to be “burned” to spoil its flavor.
One of the most recommended things is to calculate how many people will drink from this coffee maker and at what time, to be able to do the right thing and be able to drink it once and not save coffee and burn it.
