Process & Brewing

How do I brew this coffee?

Don't feel bad for asking! Here's a few guidelines to start.
Don't feel bad for asking!
Here's a few guidelines to start.
Always use filtered water! No matter how you're brewing, that's a must.
Grind beans just before brewing. If you pre-grind, your coffee flavors start losing complexity and tastiness very quickly. It doesn't go bad but just isn't nearly as good.
We also suggest spending a few extra bucks on a burr grinder not a blade grinder. You'll thank us later 🙂

Drip Machines

1) Use 1 level tbl spoon of coffee per 8 oz (or 1 cup) of water
2) It's best if your brewer filter is cone or V shaped rather than flat bottom so as to get maximum/even saturation of beans

French Press

1) Grind coffee a bit coarser than your drip coffee
2) Use 1 level tbl spoon of coffee per 8 oz of water
3) Heat filtered water to between 198-201 degrees. If you don't have temp reading on water, just make sure it's under boiling.
4) Pour water over coffee grinds and do one stir to make sure all coffee grinds are saturated
5) Set timer to 4 minutes
6) Press down to filter out coffee.
*If there's too much resistance when pressing, it means grind size is too fine so adjust your grind to coarser setting next time you brew.

Slow Pour

(If you're brewing this way, I'm going to assume you're REALLY into coffee so we'll be switching to ratios)
1) Use 1 gram of coffee for every 15 grams of water. For a normal cup of coffee that is about 23 grams of coffee and 380 grams of total water. About 20-30 grams of water stay in beans and filter if you did the math and the 1:15 ratio didn't line up.
2) Pre-wet your coffee filter before putting coffee grinds in it
3) Heat water to 198-201. Make sure to maintain that heat throughout process.
4) Your first pour should be to saturate the coffee grinds which will be around 40 grams of water. This is called the bloom. Let the water saturate for about 30-45 secs before next pour.
5) After the bloom pour, evenly gently pour water over grounds in increments of about 70 grams of water or 5 total pours.
6) The total time from bloom to finishing should be no longer than 5 minutes.

So there you go! These should help you out on your journey to great coffee. Adjust as needed to taste preference.
