Confessions of a coffee wannabean

Riedel revolutionized how we drink and appreciate wine by emphasizing the shape of the glass so that wine projects its optimum aromas, which, as we all know, are keys to a wine’s flavor.

Can Vaporiety do the same thing with how we appreciate and enjoy coffee?

Let me say first off that — though my day job is as a wine, food, and travel writer — I’ve been moonlighting as a principal in a startup coffee company called Vaporiety. Vaporiety doesn’t grow coffee, brew coffee, sell coffee, or make fancy cups to better enjoy coffee.

Rather, it's a fresh, new technology that we believe will help the coffee fanatic enjoy a fresh brew in the worst possible situation — when the fanatic is drinking coffee from a to-go cup or travel mug. Everyone will agree that drinking coffee on the go is a drama in which we’re making the best of a bad situation. We don’t have time to stop and smell the coffee, so we carry it with us, trying not to spill it or burn ourselves while drinking it, all the while lamenting the fact that it doesn’t taste as good as it should because of the closed lid.

One of my partners is David Pensak — a scientist who doesn’t drink coffee — came up with the obvious answer: If the lid is the problem, then change the lid.

So this Wizard of Lids came up with a technology — which he was sane enough to patent as tightly as a hen house door in fox country — that uses membranes that let the aroma out (in fact it concentrates it) while not letting the coffee slosh out. And it really does make the coffee taste like real coffee while still allowing it to be drunk safely.

Is it the next big-coffee drinking idea? I can’t say for sure. But I’ve been enjoying drinking from my beta cup for the past few months, so we may be onto something.

If you order a pour-over coffee in a Serious Coffee Shop, you get a performance full of drama: the vessel filled with coffee grounds suspended high above the cup on a special stand, the inexplicable pauses and patterns of the pour. Many silent minutes pass before they bestow The Cup of Coffee upon you.

Sure it&rsquos good, but is all that necessary? And let&rsquos not even talk about the price.

I speak as a coffee nerd who owns probably 8 or 9 coffee-making devices when I say the answer is no. You can make a pour-over coffee at home, without an expensive specialty apparatus.

All you need is a dollar-store funnel. I&rsquom serious.

What you'll need: the funnel, a cup, a cone-type coffee filter like these that you can get at the supermarket by the hundreds for a couple bucks, and some way to boil water.

And some knowledge: You want roughly 2 heaping tablespoons of coffee for about 6 ounces of water, a ratio figured out by specialists . (You can eyeball this after you&rsquove done it a few times if you want to get nerdy with a scale , go for it, but you really don&rsquot have to.)

If you can, grind the coffee just before brewing for much better flavor. Our favorite blade grinder is usually under $20 and coffee experts couldn&rsquot distinguish between it and the results of our top burr grinder .

Coffee tastes best if the brew water is between 195 and 205 degrees, just a bit cooler than boiling (which is 212 degrees). But pouring it cools the temperature into that zone, so you are good to go once it boils.

With that out of the way, here&rsquos how to make an amazing cup of coffee with your dollar-store funnel:

1. Put the filter in the funnel cone put the cone in the cup add the coffee and pour a little bit of water, just enough to wet the grounds. Wait 15 seconds or so. That opens up the flavor of the coffee.

2. Now slowly pour in the rest of the water, and try to wet all the grounds. If you want, get in there and stir them with a spoon to be sure that there are no dry pockets.

3. That&rsquos it. Enjoy an amazing cup of coffee. Feel free to tip yourself.
