How to Make a Quality Cup of Coffee
Start with quality fresh roasted premium coffee beans.
Use quality water. 98-99% of your coffee is water, so the quality of your water plays an undeniable role in the quality of your coffee. We recommend using filtered water because tap water will often include chlorine and other elements that will affect your coffee’s flavor. However, reverse-osmosis water is the best choice. Distilled water is not recommended.
Determine the grind you need based on your brewing method – longer brewing times use coarser grinds (like a French Press), while shorter brewing methods use finer grinds (like espresso).
Changing the size of the grind can largely influence the taste of your coffee, so feel free to experiment to find your preferred taste.
Using 1-2 level tablespoons of ground coffee per six ounces of water. Adjust the measurement to your taste.
Brew with water heated to between 195F-205F, i.e. just below boiling temperature. Store coffee in an airtight container, out of direct sunlight, and away from heat, cold, and moisture.
