BREWING GUIDES

Preparing and enjoying a great cup of coffee is a pleasure, and few things as simple as brewing coffee provide such rich rewards. Brewing coffee is a lot like cooking with fresh produce: Start with the best, freshest ingredients, take care to do it well, and you will create something astonishingly delicious.

Taste and brew time tell you which direction to go. If your mouth feels dry with an ashy aftertaste, you’re likely grinding too fine. If the coffee tastes weak, sour, or a little papery, you may be grinding too coarse.

THE BASICS OF BETTER COFFEE

  • Use the best freshly roasted coffee. (Don’t worry, with us, you have this covered)
  • Store coffee in an airtight container, out of direct sunlight, and away from heat, cold, and moisture.
  • Brew with water heated to between 195 and 205F.
  • Use 2 tablespoons of coffee per 6 oz (180 ml) water, adjusting to taste.
  • Even though taking a hot cup of coffee is a titanic task for a mom, we recommend not consuming coffee with several hours of preparation, because the pH decreases significantly (it gets more acid). If we add that it is reheated, it will probably lose most of its nutrients and antioxidant properties.

HOW TO USE …

GRIND FOR EACH BREWING TECHNIQUE

Different brewing techniques require different particle sizes, based on how long water and coffee are in contact. Generally, brew methods with shorter contact times, like espresso or Aeropress, require a finer grind size; longer, slower brew methods, like French Press, work better with a coarser grind.
