Making great coffee is important. And if you haven’t seen it yet, we’ve got our famous Cowboy Coffee recipe HERE.
But getting great flavor from coffee doesn’t just come from the coffee itself, but from your coffee pot. Just like cast iron, a coffee pot needs to be seasoned. Once you have it properly seasoned- and clean it properly- you’ll notice be on your way to having the best coffee in your life!
Cleaning: Never use soap on a coffee pot! Soap will eat away at any of your coffee seasoning and can also flavor it poorly. You’ll just need some good hot water and a good rinsing. Be sure to let your pot to air dry completely before putting it up.
Boiling Coffee: For new coffee pots, pots you’ve recently purchased you’ll need to build up some of that inside coffee seasoning. Fill your coffee pot with water and add the coffee ground. Bring it to a good rolling boil for about 10 minutes. Remove it from the heat and let is set all day. Letting the coffee absorb into the inside of the pot will help build a great flavor.
I recommend using a graniteware or enamel pot. You can use stainless steel, but it may take longer to build a good seasoning.
