All you need is the best quality organic grounded coffee beans, a kettle, a fine-mesh sieve, and a cooking stove.
Step 1 – Boil Water: In a kettle or saucepan, add as much water as you’d like coffee, plus a few extra tablespoons for each cup. For example 120ml to 130ml water for an India-size teacup or 240 ml for a standard coffee mug. Wait till the water starts boiling.
Step2 – Add Coffee: Add your favorite medium roasted fine ground organic coffee once the water reaches a rolling boil. I know you might be looking for the quantity of the coffee to add. For every 120ml to 130ml of water, you need one tablespoon of coffee or 2 tablespoons of coffee for every 250ml of water.

Also, make sure you cover the pot because you do want a flavourful brew. Wait about 5 to 9 minutes. Move the kettle in a circular motion to ensure grounds have all sunk to the bottom of the kettle.

If you are adding milk then make sure you adjust the quantity of grounded coffee accordingly. Your favorite cup of coffee is ready for the first sip. Enjoy it.
