Here’s your guide to brewing the best cups of thirty-thirty coffee at home. See below for our favorite methods: french press, pour-over, chemex, aero press, iced, and drip.
In addition to our beans and brewing equipment, your supplies should include a pour kettle, gram scale, timer, and burr grinder.
HOME DRIP MACHINE
All home machines are extremely different. For this reason it’s very difficult to give brew guidelines for these machines. Our best advice is to use 1.75g coffee/ 1oz. of water If you don’t have a gram scale we HIGHLY recommend at least making this small purchase (your taste buds will thank you). If you have no scale, use approximately 1 tbsp of medium grind coffee for every 4oz. of water.
With a little practice, anyone can do coffee by-the-cup at home. We recommend you sell your home drip machine at your next garage sale (or your neighbors) and take the extra few minutes to brew coffee at home with a Hario v60 or French Press. We think you’ll be a lot happier with the quality of the cup. We are happy to answer any brewing questions while you’re in our cafe or feel free to shoot us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
***If using a refractometer, we recommended shooting for a 19-21% extraction for all brewing methods
