Drip Bag Coffee: Brewing. Blooming. Serving

In recent years, coffee consumption is still a fairly popular trend. It can be seen in the number of coffee shops/cafes spread across Indonesia. Based on data from Euromonitor, the number of cafes in Indonesia is increasing every year, even increasing to 16% every year. Almost all cafes in Indonesia are always crowded with teenagers and adults. It happens because nowadays, cafes are not only a place to enjoy coffee but also a place to meet someone, a place to study for students, and even a hangout place for young people.

However, not all coffee lovers have to enjoy coffee at a cafe, there are also those who prefer to brew coffee at home. For those who prefer to enjoy coffee at home, the manual brewing method is the solution. What is the manual brewing method?

Manual Brewing Method

The manual brewing method is a technique of brewing coffee manually without the need for tools such as espresso or other tools that require electricity. This manual brewing method was chosen because it is simpler, saves electricity, and your money for a cup of coffee. The tools for manual brewing are also easy to find in offline or online stores, depending on the coffee needs you want to make. Different tools, different grind sizes of ground coffee needed. There are many manual brewing techniques that you can try at home:

Vietnam Drip

Vietnam Drip

Do you want to enjoy a cleaner milk coffee? You should try this brewing method. This method of brewing originating from Vietnam is very easy and the ingredients needed are also easy to find. Vietnamese Coffee itself in Vietnamese is “cà phê sữa nóng” which means brown dark coffee with milk. The brewing tool used is a Vietnamese dripper. This dripper is in the form of a metal cup (made of stainless steel) consisting of a filter tube, plunger, and lid. This tool is quite simple and the price is also affordable. You can make it an option for brewing at home. Besides the dripper, the ingredients needed are medium-grind size coffee and sweetened condensed milk. The brewing process is about 4 minutes.



This manual brewing is suitable for those who want to make coffee quickly and similar to espresso. However, unfortunately, if you use this brewing tool, you can’t brew large amounts of coffee. The ground coffee used for this tool is medium grind size. Besides the Aeropress tool, you also need to prepare a special Aeropress filter. In this brewing method, it usually does not occur Over-Extraction, because after the coffee is submerged in water for about 30-60 seconds, the coffee will be directly pressed and then filtered through the filter paper located at the bottom of the tool. So the taste of the coffee will be bold and have an acidic taste (sour taste mixed with sugar content in coffee which produces a sour taste like fruit acids) and of course, the aftertaste is cleaner.

Kopi Tubruk

Kopi Tubruk

You will often find this coffee brewing method wherever you drink coffee, like in angkringan or coffee shops. This method very much represents Indonesia. This brewing method also requires no tools, so this method is always preferred. However, if you are used to drinking clean coffee, you have to get used to the Kopi Tubruk grounds. The grind size used for this coffee is usually fine grind. Since the fine-grind size coffee will sink more easily and can be enjoyed immediately, and the resulting flavor will also be stronger. Indeed, the finer the grind, the more bitter it will taste if it is over-extracted, but it will not taste as long as the drink is not cold.

French Press


This manual brewing has become a favorite brewing for home coffee lovers because apart from being affordable, this tool is also easy to use. The French Press consists of a cylindrical tube, usually made of glass or clear plastic, fitted with a metal or plastic cap and a plunger that fits inside the cylinder and is accompanied by a sturdy wire or nylon mesh filter. The grind size of the coffee used for the French press is coarse grind because if it is fine grind it will seep through the filter and the brew will mix with the coffee grounds. In addition, coffee that is too fine can also make the coffee too bitter due to over-extraction. The brewing process using this tool only takes 3 minutes.

Pour Over or Drip


The pour-over method involves pouring hot water through coffee grounds in a filter. The water drains through the coffee and filter into a carafe or mug. Pour over is also known as a filter or drip coffee, although these terms include batch brewers. What sets pour-over apart is that it is made by hand-pouring the water over the coffee. So you may hear it called hand brewing or manual brewing. The technique has been used in Europe since the 1900s and elsewhere for much longer but was “rediscovered” by the specialty coffee movement in recent years.

Nowadays, coffee drip is a simple and inexpensive solution for those who want coffee without pulp and the taste is cleaner. This coffee drip bag usually comes in a package of coffee and a paper bag for the filter. What is drip bag coffee? What is the difference from ground coffee?
