Some people like their coffee so hot that it is barely drinkable. Making hot coffee is easy when using instant coffee but how do you get the hot coffee with the awful taste of instant granules? Read on to find out how to make hot coffee from your favourite coffee maker.
Stovetop Espresso Makers
The stovetop espresso maker is also known as a “Moka Pot”. It produces coffee by passing hot pressurised water through the ground coffee. This method is known to produce the hottest brews of coffee.
Handy Tip for hot coffee # 1 – Warm your favourite coffee cup with boiling water before pouring in the coffee. This will ensure that the coffee doesn’t lose vital temperature when it hits the mug!
Drip Filter Coffee Makers
The Drip Filter type of coffee maker can make very hot coffee. Unfortunately how hot it comes out will depend on the model of coffee maker. The general rule of thumb is the older it is the hotter it will brew your coffee. If in doubt, just pour out your coffee from the coffee pot and whack it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Be careful not to boil it though as it will taste quite bitter.
Handy Tip for hot coffee # 2 – If using a drip filter coffee machine, heat up the milk before pouring it in your coffee
Making Extra Hot Coffee using a Nespresso Coffee Maker – BEST FLAVOUR FOR HOT COFFEE
Making extra hot coffee from a Nespresso Machine is quite easy if you cheat a little like I do and like flat whites. Don’t bother attaching the frother for this one. All you need to do is heat a cup of milk in the microwave for around 1 minute and 20 seconds (be careful you don’t boil the milk) and then use the Espresso setting to add the coffee to the hot milk. It tastes delicious and comes out piping hot – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
As you can see there are a few ways to ensure your coffee is as hot as humanly possible. I can really recommend using the nespresso machine as there are so many varieties to choose from so you can mix and match your flavours on a daily basis. Well worth the buy!
