A great cup of coffee may be one of the best parts of waking up in the morning, but it’s also one of the hardest things to get right. Luckily, you can make homemade Philz Coffee just like you’d get in the store using these five steps at home.
What is Philz Coffee?
Philz is a San Francisco coffee company that has been brewing up small batches of coffee since the 1980s. The company is focused on quality, sustainability, and community involvement. Philz’s goal is to brew the best coffee in the world for people who believe that every day should be a great day. They do this by offering three types of beans (arabica, robusta, or decaf), which can be brewed from light to dark roast.
How to Make Philz Coffee at Home in 5 Steps?
If you’re craving Philz but don’t want to spend the time or money outside, try making it at home! This quick and easy guide will show you how to make your favorite Philz drink – from start-to-finish.
Step 1: Gather Ingredients.
To make your own Philz coffee at home you will need the following ingredients;
- Coffee beans.
- A burr grinder.
- A flat base filter.
- Water (1- 1 1⁄2 cups heated to 205 degrees Fahrenheit).
- Ice (2 cups).
- Milk or its alternative such as soy milk, almond milk, or lactose free milk and syrup of your choice.
- Two empty cups (for brewing and drinking).
Step 2: Grinder Settings.
The next step is setting your grinder. The key here is to have a grinder that’s appropriate for the type of coffee you’re using. For example, if you’re using whole bean coffee, then you’ll want a blade grinder.
However, if you’re grinding finely ground coffee from grounds already packaged, then use a burr grinder instead.
If you don’t know what type of grinder to purchase for your needs, ask an employee at the store where you buy your coffee beans or check out guides online for the best grinders for your budget.
Step 3: Water Temperature.
If you want the water to be near boiling, start with a cold water and turn up the heat until it boils. Once it boils, turn off the heat and let the kettle cool for 30 seconds. This will make sure that when you pour your hot water into your French Press, it won’t scald or otherwise burn you.
If you want the water to be lukewarm instead of hot, use a pot with a built-in thermometer so that you can set it accordingly.
If you don’t have either of these things, then do your best: fill a pot with cold water and heat it on high heat until bubbles form around the edges of the pot.
Step 4: Brewing Process.
Then with the help of a lid lock filter cover the container and brew the coffee for 20-30 seconds. Make sure it doesn’t exceed the time. You can also use timer for safety.
Step 5: Finish with Milk and Sugar.
Once your coffee is ready, you can finish it with milk and sugar. For a sweeter taste, add more sugar. For a stronger taste, add more coffee beans. If you want to make it really strong, brew it twice before adding the final ingredients.
