BREWING FUNDAMENTALS

  • Preheat your brewing vessel
  • Weigh your ingredients
  • Make sure your brewing vessel is clean
  • Use water that is almost but not quite boiling
  • Make sure to wet all the grounds evenly
  • Rinse any paper filters with hot water before use
  • Be sure to grind the coffee to the correct coarseness for the brewer you are using
  • Fresh coffee will "bloom" which is CO2 being released as hot water hits the coffee
  • To adjust strength change the grind, not the ratio of coffee to water. For stronger tasting coffee grind finer for less intense flavor coarsen your grind.
