How to set your bunn brewer 

Bunn Brewers are known for their pace in the world of brewing, these machines by bunn are basically designed like huge tanks and when I say tank I mean the way they look, their durability. these tanks can give you delicious coffee within mere 3 minutes, how? they can produce coffee within 3 minutes as they come with a hot water reservoir, this design as eventually made homebrewing a lot easier. if you have early morning visitors you do not need to worry as you can make a lot of coffee without any hassle. each and every model of bunn is different and so are their ways to set up henceforth you need to know how so that you can set up your brewer the way it is supposed. 

 

Step – 1 

You need to lift the lid up which is on the top of your brewer and place the funnel into the compartment which is under the warmer switch, make sure you use bunn’s funnels only they surely make a difference. once done with the funnel part, fill your pot with water and pour this water in your brewer through the area which is under the lid. now just place your pot on your warmer and wait until the time the water flows from the screen to the reservoir if your reservoir is not full add more water. That’s all. 

Step – 2 

Don’t forget to plug in your brewer now, there would be a switch on the lower left side of your brewer. your brewer would need at least 15 minutes to reach the ideal temperature for brewing. 

Step 3 

Now you can finally brew your coffee by inserting a bunn filter into your funnel you need 2 ounces of coffee grounds and for measuring purpose you can use a tablespoon. you need to shake your brewer’s funnel so that your coffee ground gets evenly spread and after it simply slide you funnel underneath the on/of the switch and then press the on button. 

Step- 4 

lift the lid up and add a full pot of water and before closing it place your pot back on the warmer as soon as you will close your brewer’s lid the water will go into your brewer’s tank and you coffee would start brewing. 

Step- 5 

Once you are done with brewing you need to remove the funnel and throw the grounds, once you are done serving your coffee turn you’re warmer off. 

if you are planning to buy a new Bunn Brewer make sure to consider your needs first as each and every brewer is not for you some are for commercial use some for home use, it is not that if you buy the commercial brewer you cant use it at your home but it would just be a waste of money and I do not think you wish to waste your hard earned money, if you are a traveler you must go for the brewer which is portable because if you buy a brewer which stays at home it is simply wasting money 

How to make thick cold coffee at home? 

I have yet not met a person who actually does not like the concept of cold coffee, worldwide people love cold coffee, chilled, different flavor and chocolate sauce. for thickness, we need to use the whole cream milk and a blender is a  must for smoothness. 

Ingredients needed 

  • coffee powder 
  • whole cream milk 
  • sugar powder 
  • ice cubes 
  • chocolate sauce 

 

Method  

Take a small bowl and coffee powder and about 2 tablespoons warm water, mix it properly and once done with mixing place it aside. Pick the best ninja blender and put sugar, the mixture we just made, milk and 5 to 6 ice cubes, make sure that the mixture turns out to be frothy and smooth. 

Take a glass, if the glass is tall it would be nice, tilt your glass and on the sides pour some chocolate sauce and do not forget to rotate the glass while doing this and at the bottom pour some chocolate sauce and after this pour your thick cold coffee. 

Can we only make coffee with coffee grounds, actually no there are a lot of deserts which we can make with coffee grounds and one of them is tiramisu mousse, we make it especially with mascarpone cheese, it is like normal cheese cream only but has a lot more smooth texture and the fun part in using this cheese is that it is Italian, I would recommend fresh whipped cream and if you are worried about the calories you can use the whipped topping and the flavor depends on how you wish it to be, strong? add more coffee and if light then less coffee. I won’t recommend cake layer instead chocolate is what I would recommend and do not sprinkle the top layer with your unsweetened cocoa powder 

INGREDIENTS: 

  •  instant coffee  
  •  hot water 
  •  heavy whipping cream 
  •  powdered sugar 
  • marscarpone cheese 
  •  vanilla extract 
  •  unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • semi-sweet baking chocolate

Method 

Take a small bowl and put 1/4 lukewarm water in it and add instant coffee, mix well. keep it aside for 5 minutes so that it can cool down. while it cools down you need to beat the whipping cream it must form stiff peaks once done, chill it.  

In a bowl add mascarpone cheese and sugar powder, blend it using a hand blender, once you feel that the texture is smooth add vanilla extract and about 1 tablespoon of coffee, mix it well. 

It’s time to actually fold cream into the mixture of coffee, take a Ziploc bag and place tiramisu in it atthe bottom of the glass pipe, a very small amount and you need to put cocoa powder on the top layer, repeat this step. 

once you reach the top you will need to grate baking chocolate so that the first bite is sweet.  

that’s all about the thick cold coffee and tiramisu mousse do tell us how it was and if you are interested in some more coffee deserts, we have a plenty of recipes. so next time you have some friends coming over try this 20-minute coffee desert.
