How to make coffee at hotel without coffee maker
These days I was travelling around for business. I feel very tired when I arrived at the hotel every day and don't want to get out to order coffee. By the way, it's too much cold outside too. So I decided to make my own coffee and luckily I have all the tools I need in my baggage. So let's check how I did it.
First of all, this is not professional tutorial and not for professional coffee enthusiast. It's just for casual relaxing accidently situation which you don't have any choice and just use what you have to make coffee.
What I have is as below:
Mini juice blender: I use it to make juice on trip. Sometimes it works as grinder too but not good.
Thermos cup: I take it with me to contain hot water in my bag. Chinese like drinking hot water instead of cold water no matter hot or cold weather.
Electrical pot: The electrical pot in the hotel is not safe. Sometimes customer put wield stuff inside the pot. So I need my own electrical pot to make hot water.
So I didn't take professional tools even a manual grinder with me but I want coffee. So I will show you the steps.
Grind the coffee beans by blender. The mini blender lack enough power, and it will stop automatically per 5 secs. It won't grind very fine and good powder but it is OK for me. I don't mind and just need beans to be broken apart into fractions.
Then we need hot water. And the electrical pot take charge and boil the water in few minutes.
Pour the grounds into the thermos cup.
Pour hot water into the thermos cup and lid the cover. Shake the cup to mix the ground and water well.
press the lid to release the coffee after few minutes.
Finally I got the hot coffee which still contains few fractions of the coffee beans. For me, I don't mind and the factions can be gotten rid of easily. And the flavor and aroma are all right. Although it's not as good as home-made or shop-made coffee, it's a great choice if you don't have choice.
Remark: here I use the lid of thermos cup as the coffee paper filter to extract the coffee. The lid works well, and don't forget to clean the thermos cup after you used it. It will contain the flavor of coffee for days. If you mind it, don't imitate what I do！！
