Coffee Videos

Learn or get an idea of how to brew coffee thru these videos. Brewing your own coffee can add to the enjoyment of drinking it.  Think of it not as a waste of time, but as a reflective time for yourself,  or a bonding activity with others. 🙂

A Manual Brew Kind of Day: Aeropress

I love manually brewing coffee especially in the morning! And perhaps my favorite brewing method is via Aeropress 🙂




A Manual Brew Kind of Day: Moka Pot

Got 3 packs of coffee as part of the Chinese New Year gift bag offered by Curve Coffee Collaborators (in Muntinlupa City, NCR, Philippines). Here’s the time when I tried it for the first time. The brewer I chose to test it first was the classic Moka Pot.

A Manual Brew Kind of Day: French-pressed Latte?

Spending time in cabins is great. And there’s one thing I really love doing while in a cabin: making coffee! In this video, I show how I usually prepare coffee for family and friends: with milk foamed using the French Press. Try it, and enjoy a cup similar to cappuccino!

A Manual Brew Kind of Day: Classic CHEMEX!

The Chemex. It’s a classic invented by a chemist: Peter Schlumbohm in 1941. This glass brewer is so beautiful and elegant that I instantly fell in love with it. It’s the first manual brewer that I bought when my coffee curiosity started. But I’d say more than the design, the distinct taste of a cup of coffee made using Chemex is due to the Chemex bonded filter.

Going Electric: Non-dairy Cappuccino

Sometimes I go for electric grinder and brewer for faster preparation. And of course, espresso is something special! In this video though, I prepared coffee for someone else (sharing is for caring!). Also, I prepared cappuccino using soy milk – a great non-dairy substitute. You’ll see that just like milk, soy milk can be frothed quite easily.

An Unexpected Coffee Connection

6 months ago, I somehow got connected to the tourism head of a municipality in the province of Batangas, Philippines. It led me to teaching a group of people about coffee. In this trip, I visited the municipality again and had a chance to check on them a little bit.

Going Electric: Chemex Ottomatic

When I bought the Chemex, I actually got the coffee machine, which comes with the 6-cup carafe. They call the machine, Chemex Ottomatic. I don’t use it often as I prefer manually brewing, especially for a cup or two. But I can always take it out to have an easier time brewing a bigger batch to be shared with a group.
