What is a drip coffee maker?
Drip coffee, also known as filter coffee, is a popular brewing method where hot water passes through ground coffee in a paper or metal filter, extracting flavours and aromas.
The process occurs in drip coffee makers, ranging from manual pour-over setups to automated machines.
The brewed coffee drips into a pot, allowing customisation of flavour through factors like grind size and ratio. The result is a flavourful cup enjoyed as-is or with additions based on your preference.
