BREW GUIDES

Education is at the heart of everything we do. Whether it’s a quick phone call to discuss grinder adjustment or an SCA accredited course we believe knowledge is power. We’d rather arm you with the knowledge to make great coffee yourselves rather than place our coffee and you within a box. Here you can check out our brew guides.


V60/KALITA

  • 16.5g of ground coffee - Ground courser than V60/Kalitta
  • 250ml of filtered water 
  • Brew time 1min 
  • Extraction 30s 
  • Rinse your filter with hot water. This will get rid of papery flavour and will pre-heat your brewing gear. Discard the water before brewing. 
  • Put your coffee into the Aeropress. Pour all the water straight in and give it a good stir to make sure all coffee grounds are soaked. Put the cap on and wait for 1min. Your brewing time starts as soon as water hits the coffee grounds. After 1min flip your AeroPress into your container/cup and press it down for 30 sec until it's empty and enjoy!

AEROPRESS

CHEMEX

  • 42g of ground coffee
  • 750ml of filtered water
  • Rinse your filter with hot water. This will get rid of papery flavour and will pre-heat your brewing gear. Discard the water before brewing.
  • Pre-infuse your coffee by pouring 84g of water for 40s.
  • Then pour the rest of the water in a slow circular movement, try not to hold your kettle too high. When you finish swirl your brewer, this will even out the coffee bed and give you a better extraction. 

FRENCH PRESS

  • 30g ground coffee - Ground really course
  • 500ml filtered water
  • Pour hot water on your coffee and let it sit for 4min. Then after 4 mins passed take two tablespoons and stir the coffee. The coffee crust that has formed on the top will start to fall to the bottom. Using the two tablespoons just scoop out whatever is left on the top and put it in the bin. Let it brew for a further 5 min. Put in your plunger, but only press it halfway. Be gentle when pouring as you don't want to stir up the grounds that have sunk to the bottom. This will give you a much cleaner tasting coffee without any grounds floating around your cup.
