The hanging ear that comes out is very light? Take a look at your cup!

Last Updated: 2024/03/01, I believe that everyone has prepared enough coffee earbags for the upcoming National Day holiday, so that they can have a free time in a year without being bound by those complicated brewing utensils and parameters during the long holiday. You can drink black coffee in the easiest way! This is also the beginning of the designer of the earbag.

This is also the original intention of the earbag designer, who hopes that everyone can drink a cup of hand-made drip coffee without spending a lot of energy. Do not need too many coffee utensils, do not need too accurate parameters, as long as a cup, a pot of hot water, and a bag of ears, you can undertake the important task of making drip coffee.

However, in the case of no electronic scale, many friends directly put the hanging ear on any cup, and then soak it with hot water for a long time, so it is very difficult to get the ideal hanging-ear coffee. On the contrary, it is very likely that the coffee will lead to two negative results: one is due to excessive water injection, and the taste of the coffee is weak. One is because the soaking time is too long, which leads to excessive extraction, which makes it very bitter!

that! We can observe the appearance and capacity of the cup to avoid the error caused by the lack of electronic scales and temperature control equipment. After all, no matter how simple it is, we still need some quality.

The capacity of the cup we can first know the capacity of the cup we use, and then combined with the conventional powder-to-water ratio to determine which cup the hot water needs to be injected into, in order to achieve the target amount of water, and finally extract the appropriate concentration. In general coffee extraction, 1:15 is the more commonly used ratio of powder to water, and the concentration of coffee washed out is more appropriate. On the other hand, the amount of powder in Qianjie is 10g, which translates to the amount of hot water needed for 150ml. If the capacity of the cup used is 400ml, we only need to inject water to 1/3 of the total height of the cup to get a cup of coffee with the right concentration ~ if the cup is 300ml, it is half of the cup, and the amount of water can be controlled around 150ml, and so on.

The shape of the cup because the shape of the cup is different, so its capacity and height are different. Then these factors will directly lead to different degrees of soaking of the earbag during cooking! For example, some shorter cups, because the cup body is not high, hanging earbags can directly touch the bottom of the cup. When injected with hot water, it will cause it to be soaked directly by the hot water at the bottom, so it is easy to overextract the coffee. In this case, we need to slightly lower the temperature of the water used for cooking and weaken the intensity of hot water extraction.

Qianjie suggests that you can directly boil the water to the boiling state, then open the lid and place it for 120 seconds, then the water temperature can drop to about 90 °C. using hot water at this temperature can ensure the flavor and reduce the chance of overextraction at the same time.

And those tall, large capacity cups, even after filling the right amount of hot water, the water in the cup will not be soaked in the earbag, because the water level is not high enough. Then we can use higher water temperature for cooking and extraction, and the range of 92 °C to 94 °C is a good choice.

If there are other props around us, we can also use them as assistance! For example, items such as chopsticks, spoons and toothpicks, such as friends who do not have a thin-caliber hot water bottle, can act as stirring sticks and stir around the center of the ear when they are poured into hot water. It can effectively increase the flavor of the extracted coffee.
