There are several methods for making coffee at home without a machine, including the following:
French Press: Coarsely grind coffee beans and add them to a French press. Pour hot water over the grounds and let steep for 4 minutes. Slowly press the plunger to separate the grounds from the coffee.
Pour Over: Place a filter in a pour-over cone and add coarsely ground coffee. Slowly pour hot water over the grounds, allowing them to bloom. Continue pouring water until the desired amount of coffee is brewed.
Cold Brew: Combine coarsely ground coffee and cold water in a jar or pitcher. Stir and let steep in the refrigerator for 12-24 hours. Strain the coffee through a fine mesh strainer or coffee filter.
Sock Drip: Place coarsely ground coffee in a clean sock or cloth. Tie the sock closed and place it in a cup or pitcher. Slowly pour hot water over the grounds.
Note: The key to making perfect coffee is to use fresh, high-quality beans and the right amount of water. Experiment with different brewing methods and ratios until you find the perfect cup for you.
