Feel as though you are in a bind because you lack a coffee maker? Coffee has long been brewed before the invention of fancy and easy-to-use coffee makers so you still have choices. We’ll go through three simple ways to make coffee without a coffee maker in this post. 

In addition, different coffee makers produce cups of coffee that taste differently. It should be enjoyable to experiment with these various approaches.

The takeaway is that if you have the curiosity to search through your kitchen for the ideal mixture of basic ingredients and coffee, you can probably brew a cup of coffee that not only tastes good but also looks good and smells good. And a little caffeine high on top of that.


Similar to stovetop coffee but slightly more fussy, this method creates a thick, frothy, and strong brew. It’s not a fully traditional method for Turkish coffee, but it’s one way to get a really deep brew. Yes, the grinds should be in the cup at the end.

Turkish coffee is very finely ground coffee brewed by boiling usually with sugar, any coffee roast may be used. The coffee grounds are left in the coffee when served. Coffee can be ground at home using a manual grinder designed for an extremely fine grind or purchased already ground from a variety of stores.


If you don’t have a microwave, you can make coffee the old-fashioned way with this method. As long as you have a gas range, it will also function if you are without power.

You can use beans that have been ground finely or less finely, depending on the size of the mesh in your filter. The ‘filter’ technique involves putting your portable filter into your cup and adding your ground coffee beans. Afterwards, pour boiling water over the coffee and allow the filter to gently drip your coffee into your cup while slowly and continuously adding water in a circular motion to cover all the grounds.

To fill your cup, you might need to repeat this procedure again. Drink and enjoy after scooping out the filter and residue.


If you prefer less bitter coffee, this stovetop approach is ideal for you. All you will need for this is paper filters, water, cream and sugar (optional). To make your coffee, place your coffee and paper filter on the counter. Tie a knot in the filter by bringing the ends together (think of a packet like a tea bag). While bringing your water to a boil, pour this bag of coffee into your cup while adding enough water to cover the grounds.

Next, soak for 30 seconds. Remove the bag after 4 minutes of steeping. If desired, add cream, sugar, or both.


Mimic the same results you’d get with a French press coffee maker using a mug, bowl, and spoon with the following steps. Boil water in a saucepan on the stove and in a deep bowl, add your coarsely grounded coffee. 

Pour a small amount of boiling water over the grounds to saturate them, and use a spoon to press the coffee grounds to the bottom of the bowl. Pressing the spoon down on top of the ground, pour the remaining liquid into your coffee cup(s). Add sugar and/or cream, if desired.


There you have it!!!!!. You don’t need fancy tools to brew your coffee, you only need high quality coffee beans.
