General Guidelines Around Brewing
- Always use fresh roasted coffee—ideally 4 to 5 days off the roast date—and grind your coffee just before you brew it. If you don’t have a home grinder, it might be time to invest in one!
- Flavour preferences are incredibly subjective, especially when referring to the strength of a brew. If you like stronger tasting coffee, increase the amount of dry coffee going in and keep the water volume the same. If you like your coffee not quite as strong, decrease the amount of dry coffee going in OR keep it the same and increase the amount of water.
- If you want to experiment with brewing, we recommend you only change one variable at a time to understand the difference it makes in the cup. Changing the grind, amount of coffee or the amount of water will all affect the final outcome, so change one thing at a time and see the difference it makes!
- Regarding brew times, if you are going way over the suggested brew time then we would recommend coarsening your grind. If you are going way too quickly compared to the brew time, make your grind finer. The end goal is to have a great tasting cup of coffee, so feel free to play around with your settings and customize your brew!
