Brewing Coffee

10 steps to a delicious cup of coffee

  1. Select your beans carefully. We suggest high-altitude grown, small-batch roasted Arabican coffee.
  2. Grind beans to the consistency that is appropriate for your brewing method.
  3. Always use clean equipment and a fresh filter for each brew.
  4. Use cool, fresh water. It is best to remove any foreign odors or sediment from the water.
  5. Ideal temperature range for brewing is between 195–205 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Use a sufficient amount of coffee;
    2 Tbs coffee or 1.5 in. bed depth of grounds per 6 ounces of water.
  7. Select the appropriate batch size for the most enjoyment and least amount of waste.
  8. Do not keep coffee over direct heat for more than 20 minutes.
  9. Stir coffee when using a steeping method.
  10. Temper brewing vessels and cups with dry heat or hot water before serving.

Enjoy!
