Craving a hot cup of coffee but don't want the jitters, the late night, or the dehydrating effects of caffeine?
Sounds like it's time to make decaf coffee!
Decaffeinated coffee is always at least 97% caffeine free.
Things You'll Need
- Decaffeinated Coffee
- Coffee Filter
- Automatic Coffee Pot
Insert your coffee filter into the filter holder. Using unbleached coffee filters keeps chemicals from straining into your coffee. Cotton coffee filters are becoming popular because they are very eco-friendly.
Pour 1 Tablespoon of ground coffee into a coffee filter for each cup of coffee you want to make. (i.e. 3 T. for 3 cups of coffee) This amount can be adjusted if you like your coffee weak.
Fill up your coffee pot with 1 cup of water for each cup of coffee desired. (i.e. 3 cups of water for 3 cups of coffee)
Pour the water into the water tank and flip the switch to turn the coffee machine on.
After about 5 minutes you will have a fresh pot of decaf coffee. Enjoy!
