- Brew the Coffee: Place the coarsely ground Moravian coffee into the coffee maker’s filter or brewing chamber. Pour the hot water evenly over the coffee grounds. Allow the coffee to brew according to the specific instructions of your chosen brewing method.
- Serve and Sweeten: Once the brewing process is complete, pour the coffee into your favorite Moravian coffee cup. Add Demerara sugar or your preferred sweetener to taste. Stir well to ensure the sweetener is fully dissolved.
