TOOLS -

An inexpensive digital scale, digital timer, and swan-neck kettle are key and essential tools necessary to truly immerse yourself in the brewing process - so go get em! It's a small investment that is so very worth it! We use this scale / timer and this kettle.

 

Let's start with some coffee basics - these are the fundamental rules-of-thumb to brewing a great cup of coffee.

COFFEE -

The coffee bean is the "ultimate" container for coffee's flavor, so coffee should only be purchased in whole-bean form and ground just prior to brewing. In general, coffee should be used within 30 days of the roast date on the bag. Store your beans in a cool, dry and dark place. Do NOT store your coffee in the ice-box.

WATER -

Use only cold, fresh, filtered, delicious tasting water. If your water tastes or smells blah, then so will your coffee. For best extraction results your water should be between 195º - 205º

GRINDER -

Coffee grinders come in two forms - blade and burr. If you own a blade grinder, throw it away (or use it only to grind spices). Blade grinders "hack" away at your beans producing uneven particles that result in poor extraction. A burr grinder produces a uniform particle that provides for a delicious and more nuanced extraction.

RATIOS -

Typical water to coffee ratios are 1 tablespoon of ground coffee to 3 ounces of water - or - 6 grams of ground coffee to 85 grams of water. Of course, your milage may vary, so with all coffee and brew methods, a little experimentation is necessary - tweak to taste.
