It can be fascinating to have a barista brew your favorite blend of coffee, but it can also be great to be your own coffee guru at the comfort of your own home. For most people, having a daily dose of coffee is a ritual. There are times when it can be tempting to depend on a barista and have him or her serve your daily cup. The bad news is it may lead to extravagant expenses. The good news is there are actually several ways on how you can prepare your own version of a perfect brew at home. We share with you these handy how-to guides that will bring the classic freshly roasted coffee to your home.

One of the most common and easiest ways to create your own coffee is the pour-over method. For this method, there is no machine and electric power involved. It is more on observing the bloom, witnessing the first trace of coffee-drunk steam, and recognizing how the spiral of the pour brings the final cup into completion.

You just need to follow these steps:

1. Prepare and boil at least 20 ounces (600 grams) of water. We recommend that you place the water in a stainless steel container.
