How to Make Coffee Without a Coffee Maker

How to make coffee without a coffee maker is not a difficult task as it may sound. All you have to do is follow every detail and steps carefully. It only happened to me a few times, but in both cases panic broke out before I could calm down and handle the situation properly. Do you know what we’re talking about?

When you wake up, go to the kitchen to start the coffee and find that the coffee machine is down and stops working. They know that they have “check engine” lights in cars, so why can not they have a similar warning for coffee pots.

In any case, you are a coffee machine, but you have no options. If you live in an area that is like most American cities, you can just go to the end of the block to a 24/7 convenience store and buy a cup. Or if you do not want to dress, you can put on a robe and drive through the gazillion fast food joints and get a cup there.

If you do not want to leave home, you can use this old technique that I learned in the army. I never really thought about cooking for 160 coffees in the field, all I knew was that you had to do it or that many angry, heavily armed men would be in your throat. So, how do you make so much coffee?

Well, you take a 20-gallon cauldron, fill it with water and place it in a field oven to boil. Then you take a piece of cheesecloth (or a T-shirt if you’re desperate) and shake about two pounds of coffee. They tie the cloth into a bundle and then throw it into the boiling water. Reduce the heat and wait about ten or twelve minutes for it to brew and you have 20 gallons of Joe ready to go.

Okay, you do not need 20 gallons, but you get the idea. Fill your broken coffee pot with water, or fill the carafe when using a dripping machine, and then pour this water into a saucepan and turn on the oven to cook it. Next you have the option to either use a cheesecloth (which you do not have cheesecloth?) Or a clean white sock that you never want to use again and add your normal amount of coffee. Bring the water to a boil and toss the sock.

If you do not want to use a sock, just add the coffee lose. Let it sit for eight or ten minutes and then pour it through a wire mesh into your cup or hold a coffee filter over the cup to catch the bottom.

As you can see it is not so difficult do make how to make coffee without a coffee maker. You just have to do as shown from the above discussion and have good coffee at your table any time you want. You can do it so easily and once you have done it you can drink it at the comfort of your house.
