Quick Fix: How to Make Coffee in the Microwave in Minutes


Do you love a cup of coffee, but hate the long brewing process? Don’t worry, because there’s an easier way to get your daily caffeine fix. You can make coffee in the microwave! All you need is a mug (or any other microwave-safe container), some grounds, and water. Once it’s done brewing, simply allow it to sit for a few minutes before drinking. Now that we’ve convinced you that this is something worth trying out — here’s how to do it:

Pour water into a coffee mug, or any microwave-safe container.

How to Make Coffee in the Microwave - The Best Way to Do It

  • Pour water into a coffee mug, or any microwave-safe container.
  • Measure out the water by using a measuring cup. You’ll need to use about 10 ounces of water for every 6 tablespoons of ground coffee.
  • Pour the measured amount of water into your mug or container, then stir in your ground coffee until it’s evenly dispersed throughout the liquid (you can also use pre-ground beans).

Place your coffee grounds into the cup.

Now that you have your cup and grounds, it’s time to add some water. If you’re using a mug, fill it about halfway with water and then place your coffee grounds into the mug. Don’t worry about how much room is left at this point; we’ll be adding more later on!

Microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute depending on your preferred strength of coffee and how many cups you’re making.

How To Make Coffee With A Microwave

The amount of time you microwave your coffee depends on the size of your mug, and how strong or weak you like your coffee. If you have a small cup and want a weaker brew, microwave for 45 seconds. For a large mug and a stronger brew, microwave for 1 minute.

Allow it to sit for a few minutes before drinking.

Once you’re ready to drink your coffee, allow it to sit for a few minutes before sipping. This will give the grounds time to settle at the bottom of the mug and allow them to absorb some water. This is especially important if you’re using an automatic drip machine or French press because they both produce stronger brews than regular coffee makers do.

Coffee is easy to make in the microwave — but you need a mug that’s microwave safe.

How To Make Coffee In A Microwave | Tips For Your Morning Coffee

When you make coffee in the microwave, you need to use a mug that’s microwave safe. That means no metal mugs, glass mugs or ceramic mugs. And definitely don’t use plastic mugs with plastic lids!

Here are some examples of cups and bowls that can be used for making coffee in the microwave:

  • Plastic cups — as long as they don’t have metal on them (like some travel tumblers do), these are fine. Just make sure there aren’t any cracks in them because water will leak out if there are any leaks in your cup!
  • Ceramic bowls with handles — These work great too because they’re wide enough so heat won’t build up inside while heating up your drink!
