Can You brew coffee with a tea steeper?

I have brewed coffee with my tea steeper in a pinch. If you are not grinding your coffee you should either buy a percolator grind, or if using a drip grind, you will want to use a filter. I have a used a melitta #2 coffee filters in my steeper. They require a little finagling, but I can get it in there.

How long should you steep tea?

What does it mean to steep your coffee?

People don’t think of “steeping” coffee, but, just as with tea, your goal is to get out the most flavour, without crossing that line where the brew starts to get bitter. – Satanicpuppy Nov 27 ’13 at 14:00

How do you know if tea is too hot?

The easiest way to tell if your tea has been in hot water too long is the taste. Oversteeped tea carries a very bitter taste, similar to what happens if you use water that’s too hot for green or white tea. If you do end up with tea that’s slightly too bitter, not all hope is lost.
