How to make fresh ground coffee (not instant) at home?

Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing today how to make fresh coffee like you find in proper coffee shops and restaurants at home.  Actually, this recipe was a request for my blog. That’s why I am writing this. I also drink coffee twice a day. I prepared this particular batch at my sister’s home on the weekend. I used the Jalpa Gold coffee found easily in market for this. This recipe is not for instant coffee like Nescafe but for roasted and ground coffee such as Jalpa gold. To learn how to make instant coffee easily at home, please visit my earlier blog at how to make coffee at home.


I mostly use Jalpa gold to make coffee at home

I will be using a special coffee maker device for this recipe. These days, such steamers are easily available in the market at cheap price. They come in different shapes, sizes. I worked in a coffee shop in 2011 and I used a big coffee machine. I used to drink a lot of coffee I can’t imagine now. Sometimes I even drank 10 cups of coffee in a day! But no more. 2 cups should be the limit for all of us for a healthy, refreshing day. So, here we go.


  1.  Jalpa gold fresh coffee powder 4 tablespoon
  2. Sugar to taste.
  3. Milk 2 cups (optional according to your preference)
  4.  Hot water as required.


  1.  Coffee steamer any that is available.
  2. Coffee whisk optional.
  3. Big bowl for boiling milk
  4. 4 cups to serve coffee
  5. a Spoon


Step 1: This is the coffee maker that I use which can be easily used on top of our regular gas stoves. Separate this espresso-maker into its three parts.

steamers like these are easily available in market nowadays. They are safe to use on top of our regular gas stove.

These are the three parts of the coffeemaker. The lower portion (left one) is for water. The filter or middle part is where the ground coffee goes. The upper chamber (right) is for the finished coffee.

Step 2: Fill the lower part of the coffee maker chamber with cold drinking water.

Step 3: Take the filter basket and fill it all the way with coffee grounds, make sure it is full. Press slightly using a spoon.
