HOW DO I MAKE THE PERFECT CUP?

Brewing the perfect cup of coffee can be super simple yet completely satisfying, it only takes a little practice and the right ingredients to ensure that every cup is your favorite cup.

There are really only two rules to remember:

  1. Use the cleanest, freshest water possible.
  2. Measure you ingredients.

For starters its important to remember that how finely you like your coffee ground will effect its potency. Finely ground coffee will generally deliver a stronger cup of coffee than one made from coarse ground coffee.

Most coffee scoops are the equivalent of 2 tablespoons so you can always use a regular measuring spoon if you don't have something specific for coffee. Also, use filtered water if at all possible. Most importantly, don't be afraid to experiment. Try these measurements and then adjust until you find the strength that works for you, because the best coffee in the world is simply just the one you like!

Do these things and you're well on your way to an awesome cup every time!

GRINDS

WHOLE BEAN When you have your own grinder at home. Allows the flexibility to create most of the grind types below in small batches.
COARSE Our largest grind size. Great for french press and cold brew coffees.
MEDIUM COARSE Just between coarse and the standard grind that you see in ground coffee at grocery stores. Can be used for pour-over and drip coffees.
STANDARD Similar to ground coffee from the grocery store. Pieces are small and this grind is best used for pour-over and drip coffees.
ESPRESSO Finer than the standard. This grind is used mostly for espresso coffees only.
FINE Smallest grind we offer. This is a great option for those who like to use the Moka Pot.

ROASTS

LIGHT

Has the highest acidity and are the brightest of the three roasts.
This keeps most of the original coffee flavor in tact and is great with regional coffees as it allows those notes to be more pronounced.

MEDIUM

Coffee's natural qualities give way slightly to the roast's flavors and aromas creating a balance between acidity and body.
You'll still taste the original coffee, but the beans' will be complemented with fuller body from roasting.

DARK

Dark roast resemble chocolate and oils can be seen on most dark roasted beans. When you have a dark roast you are almost exclusively tasting the notes from the roast.
With this roast type, most of the original coffee's qualities will be lost; making it often difficult to pick out specific characteristics unique to its origin.
