Brew Guides

Brewing coffee is about one thing only - pulling the good stuff out of that bean. The way you do that and how long that takes depends on you. That's why there are so many brewing methods out there. Everyone's into something a little different. We're here to help you get what suits you best. 


If you have somehow found yourself in possession of a nice smelling bag and no coffee brewer - check out our first 2 recipes. The Simple Strainer and No Gear Cold Brew don't need any devices. Just basic stuff from the kitchen. 


As for the rest of with brewers looking for recipe - scroll lower till you find the one for your device. And if isn't listed let us know on our Insta DMs @itsdopecoffee. We'll pester our copy and web guys into adding it ASAP. 😎

Let's go!


Did you know you already have everything you need to brew coffee at home? Pull out your favourite tea strainer and use our easy recipe to make a brew that’s way outside the tea strainer's usual job role and absolutely delicious.


Love coffee but hate the heat? This brew is the one for you.

Ridiculously easy to make, this recipe for cold brew is full of flavour, heavy body and very very low acidity. It takes a little time to brew but make a large batch and keep it in the fridge and you'll be sorted for days on end.

The best part? You already have everything you need.


Small brew, big punch. Its easy to underestimate the moka pot by its appearance. It looks like a very elegant water jug from afar but opening it up will show up an absolutely genius and very interesting way to make coffee.

Most of the methods you use always have gravity pushing liquids and sediments down. The moka pot moves the liquid up and along with it the intensity.  


Ah, France 🇫🇷. Designed in its modern iteration and patented in 1929, the French Press has stayed as it was for the last 90+ years. Yet somehow found a way to become a coffee staple in houses across the globe. We'd like to chalk it up to great marketing but it's more likely that happened because it's really easy, fast and brews big batches with no fuss.
Great coffee in 5 minutes? This is your guy.


For a man that’s got patents on patents, it was with the Aeropress that inventor Alan Adler struck gold. We’re not really sure what was on his mind when he designed it but to us, its best explained as a giant coffee injection.

A plastic, portable brewer that uses immersion and vacuum pressure to make coffee as tasty as an espresso machine but at 1/10th the cost? It shook up the scene like an earthquake!

And from this quake came a new to look at coffee, tons of new recipes and even a yearly 
Aeropress Championship!


This is the holy wait, more like the holy 'cone'...of coffee brewing.
This little V and it's 60 degree tilt [That's what the 60 in V60 stands for. Clearly they have a thing for keeping it literal.] changed the coffee world for the better. The V60 comes in many different sizes and materials but if you do it right, every cup is going to be bright, clear and layered with so much flavour that it's unreal!


If you're looking at this beauty of and thinking - 'this looks like a work of art', you're not exactly wrong.

A marvel born from the mix of chemistry labs, American ingenuity and the art of glass blowing, the Chemex is easily one of the most beautiful coffee makers. 

The Chemex brews coffee by straining it through lab grade filter papers at a steep incline. Besides being an absolute treat for the eyes, the syrupy, rich and dense cup it makes is a reward of its own.
