Coffee offers a diverse range of brewing methods that cater to various preferences and tastes. From practically ancient boiling practices to modern pressure and vacuum-based methods, coffee brewing is as rich and varied as the flavors it produces. Understanding these different brewing categories - decoction/boiling, infusion/steeping, drip/filtration, and pressure/vacuum - unveils a fascinating journey into the art and science of coffee preparation, each method contributing unique nuances and characteristics to your favorite cup.

Also of note, and while we have done our best to organize popular brewing methods into one of four key categories for simplicity, one can argue that certain brewing methods could fall under either more than one of these categories or a different category altogether. If you believe we have missed any brewing methods, could better organize, and/or could better categorize any of the brewing methods, then please let us know via our contact form.
