There it began to brew the coffee, first in the usual saucepans, then in a special, ornate. Over time, for the convenience of one-pot handle was removed. The remaining extended, curved, flattened. Supervisory Arabs noticed that, if the pot at a certain height to make a more narrow and the edge of the widening, the coffee is even more delicious.
Traditional Turkish coffee is not brewed on the stove, and in the hot sand, burying him on the neck Turku with water and coffee. The water begins to boil, and Turku immediately pulled out of the sand. The procedure can be repeated several times to convey the flavor of coffee.

Coffee pots, which must be heated on the stove, and currently produced by manufacturers, including luxury tableware, despite the ongoing upgrading of household electrical appliances.
Generally, all coffee makers can be divided into two groups: those that must be heated on the stove, and electric. The first can be both conventional and hot spring. The second type of coffee makers are in turn subdivided on the drip type machines (filter and espresso, and more recently appeared and combined.
Coffee maker French press
One of the most popular coffee maker is the French press . It was invented in 1920 by French company Melior, in the 30-ies became widespread in Italy, and after the second world war in France, USA, China and Japan. In Russia, unfortunately, know little.

The coffee maker is heated, then poured the right amount of coarse ground coffee and pour hot water. Once the coffee is brewed for 4-5 minutes, the piston is slowly lowered down – the drink is ready.
Coffee is without grounds, less strong compared to espresso, but stronger than drip coffee makers.
Geyser coffee maker
Geyser coffee makers are very popular, especially in Italy.
It is believed that this coffee maker was invented by a Parisian jeweler Jacques Augustine initiative for the promotion of in 1827, and was improved by the French inventor Duran.
Any geyser coffee maker (for making coffee on the stove or an electric stove) consists of three sections. To make coffee, put the coffee maker on the stove, or turn on the heater. Heated, the water in the lower section forms a positive pressure and steam begins to pass through the coffee in the second section, where he is on a special high the tube falls into the third section, where it cools and condenses. Coffee grounds remains in the cylinder, and the coffee is strong and rich.

The automatic drip coffee maker
Automatic drip coffee maker (another name filtration or American) designed the Archbishop of Paris de Belloy in 1800.
These coffee makers have a heating circuit, passing through which cold water is heated to 87-95 ° C and drop by drop into the filter, where poured coffee. Coffee gives all the aromatic substances of the water, which flows into the flask.
An integral part of these coffee makers filter. Paper – disposable nylon – reusable. Sometimes nylon filter coated with a layer of titanium nitride (the Golden filter”), which increases its service life.
Tip: If you like strong coffee, it is best to purchase coffee low power (750-800 watts). As the water heats up more slowly, it has time to absorb more flavors, because of what the coffee is stronger.
In coffee makers espresso coffee is made by pressurized steam. This coffee maker can cook and cappuccino. Frothing milk a tube with a nozzle is lowered into the glass of milk, through it under pressure is driven vapor, which creates a froth.
The principle of operation of coffee makers is as follows: water is heated as soon as the pressure reaches the desired limit, the valve opens and the water passes through a tank of coffee.
Coffee makers class Steam Espresso characterized by low pressure (3.5 to 4 bar), cook them in a coffee can for 2-4 cups.
Coffee makers class Pump-Espresso is more perfect, they are pump-pump. The water enters the coffee pressure 15 bar, so absorbs more aromatic flavor of coffee.
