Brew tips and FAQ

As a coffee enthusiast, you understand the importance of brewing your coffee just right to unlock its full potential. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned coffee connoisseur, these tips will help you achieve the perfect cup every time.

1. Use Freshly Roasted Coffee Beans

The quality of your coffee starts with the beans. Opt for our freshly roasted coffee beans to ensure maximum flavor. Look for a roast date on the packaging and choose beans that have been roasted within the past two weeks.

2. Grind Your Beans Just Before Brewing

Invest in a good quality coffee grinder and grind your beans just before brewing. This will help preserve the aroma and flavor of the coffee. For a standard drip coffee maker, aim for a medium grind size.

3. Use the Right Water-to-Coffee Ratio

The ratio of water to coffee is crucial in achieving the perfect balance. A general rule of thumb is to use 1 to 2 tablespoons of coffee for every 6 ounces of water. Adjust the ratio according to your taste preferences.

4. Control the Water Temperature

The water temperature can greatly impact the taste of your coffee. Ideally, the water should be between 195°F and 205°F (90°C and 96°C) for optimal extraction. Use a thermometer or an electric kettle with temperature control to ensure accuracy.

5. Brew Time and Extraction

The brew time and extraction process can vary depending on the brewing method you choose. For a standard drip coffee maker, aim for a brew time of 4 to 6 minutes. Experiment with different brewing techniques to find your preferred extraction time.

6. Store Coffee Properly

To maintain the freshness of your coffee, store it in an airtight container away from light, heat, and moisture. Avoid storing coffee in the refrigerator as it can absorb odors from other foods.
