So, you want an easy way to steep your coffee and have a quick clean-up? Tea infusers are a great option. First, I’ll make sure you know they exist (since that may not be obvious), and then I’ll get to the best part – these things work!
The coffee I brewed using the tea infuser tastes more shallow than other methods, but it’s an easy and fun way to make a cup.
Can You Use A Tea Infuser For Coffee ?
Yes, you can brew coffee using a tea infuser. You can use various items in your kitchen to brew some fantastic coffee: tea infusers, tea bags, or a teapot.
This technique is a great way to impress your friends by serving coffee in a teapot. For this method, you’ll need one of those more expensive teapots set out for viewing.
Make sure you have a tea filter in your teapot, to which you can add ground coffee. Grind 18 grams of coffee using a coarse grind. Next, bring 250 milliliters of water to a boil, then pour this into your teapot.
Fill your tea filter with ground coffee, then place it into the top of the teapot. Wait five minutes before you proceed; this usually gives plenty of time for the water to absorb all that delicious coffee flavor.

Which coffee grind will work best?
Perhaps best when brewing coffee, select a coarse grind; it’s similar to the cold brew.
You should use a coarser grind in your coffee if you want to avoid an over-extraction. Coarsely ground coffee looks like this:
I will give you some options of how to brew coffee using a tea infuser. I have used ground coffee beans but the results are similar for all brewing methods.
How does this brewing technique compare to others?
Cracks in the coffee beans are not as desirable for a good fresh taste. Use coarsely ground beans to get a more natural flavor, and using the filter found in your teapot will give you whole, bold coffee that tastes very similar to the French press.
I find that the flavors of coffee made with a tea infuser are similar to those in French press coffee because they are brewed similarly. Using a tea infuser while brewing your coffee will bring you a more robust cup of coffee, which is less oily than pouring over filters.

Can I make coffee using a tea bag ?
If you are tired of using generic instant coffee when you work or on vacation, I recommend making portable drink packets with tea so that you can enjoy delicious coffee no matter where you are.
The core concept behind the coffee bag is a French press; hot water steeps and soaks the coffee for a short time. In this case, a tea bag is the most convenient option. Just grind your favorite coffee to the finest level and place it in a sealed tea bag.
To make this drink, boil some water and pour it over the bag. Let the grounds steep for a few minutes before removing them. This coffee is probably not as good as drip or French press coffee, but at least it’s better than instant coffee.
Can you brew coffee using a tea ball?
You can. But you have to grind your coffee if you don’t want grit coarsely. This can apply in most cases and is valid for the way most people experience their coffee.
Controversially, I want to point out that you can drink unfiltered coffee. The easiest way is just putting the ground coffee in a cup and adding water. It’s one of the most commonly used methods for evaluating beans or roasts (by cupping).
So yes, you can use the tea ball if you want to – but do you need it? Follow the same steps as brewing a pot of tea:
– Put 20g of grounded coffee in a small container, pour 300ml of water at 195-205 degrees F over it.
– Once brewed and cooled, pour into another cup.
– If too sour or bitter, adjust time spent brewing accordingly.
It takes much more time than you think.

I started writing on the barista blog on RepublikCoffeeBar in 2018. It was a pure hobby site and I tested coffee products like coffee machines, beans, mug, and other accessories. After the first year, my blog is becoming a well-known coffee site with about 100 thousand visits per month.
In 2019 I decided to focus on RepublikCoffeeBar only. I became a full-time coffee blogger and was declared crazy by many.
