Brew Methods

Brew Instructions
A good cup of coffee is about freshness and precision. Always brew your coffee with filtered or purified water, and if you can, use a kitchen scale to brew for an optimal result. Store your coffee in an airtight container once opened so that every cup tastes as fresh as the first!

French Press

Measure coarse ground coffee into the base of the French Press. Use a ratio of 13 grams (3 level tablespoons) per cup of coffee to be brewed.

Pour enough boiling water over the grounds to wet them, then swirl the French Press gently to ensure that all the grounds are wetted. Pour the remainder of the boiling water. Wait 4-5 minutes, then plunge the grounds. Enjoy!

Chemex 

Line your Chemex with a filter and wet the filter with hot water. Drain the water from the bottom. Measure 33 grams (roughly the height of the wooden collar) of coarse ground coffee into your filter-lined Chemex. In a spiral motion, pour enough boiling water over the grounds to wet them. Wait 30 seconds for the coffee to “bloom” (release gas).

Pour boiling water in a controlled spiral motion, waiting once or twice to keep the basket from overflowing, until the coffee reaches the dimple on the base of the Chemex. If using a natural filter, compost your grounds and enjoy your coffee!

Percolator

Measure medium-ground coffee into the basket of the percolator.  Use a ratio of 10 grams (2 level tablespoons) per cup of coffee to be brewed.

Add the corresponding amount of water to the base of your percolator and heat the coffee over medium flame. When it starts to “perk” (frequent and rhythmic bubbling in the bulb of the percolator), reduce the flame to low and set a timer for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, remove the coffee from the heat.  Allow to rest briefly before enjoying.

Note: To reheat, remove the spindle and basket of grounds from the percolator and heat on low flame to desired temperature.

Electric Drip

Measure medium-ground coffee into a filter that fits your machine. Use a ratio of 10 grams (2 level tablespoons) per cup of coffee to be brewed. Add the corresponding amount of water to your brewer’s reservoir. Brew. Wait until all the water is completely brewed before enjoying.

V60 and other single-serve pourovers

Place your single serve pourover over your drinking vessel. Line with a filter and wet the filter with hot water. Drain the water from your drinking vessel. Measure 20 grams (4 level tablespoons) of medium ground coffee into the pourover.

In a spiral motion, pour enough boiling water over the grounds to wet them. Wait 30 seconds for the coffee to “bloom” (release gas). Pour the remainder of the water in a controlled spiral motion, waiting once or twice to keep the basket from overflowing. If using a natural filter, compost your grounds and enjoy your coffee!

 

moka pot icon

Moka Pot

Fill the base of the Moka pot with water to just below the valve. Fill the basket with fine ground coffee so that it is completely level, tamping gently with your fingers or the back of a spoon. Heat over medium-high flame. After about 7-10 minutes a hissing sound will indicate that all the water has been brewed. Enjoy as an espresso, americano, or in a milky beverage!
