- 10 to 12 g of freshly roasted and freshly ground coffee.
-160 to 192 ml water (bottled water with added minerals is recommended)
Generally, it is recommended that:
To determine the volume (ml) of water to use for brewing, multiply the weight (g) of your coffee by 16.
Conversely, to determine the weight (g) of coffee to use for brewing, divide the volume (ml) of your water by 16.
- Heat water to between 175F (80C) and 195F (90C)
Feel Free to experiment by slightly changing these variables. It helps to stick to just ONE brewing method, until you have perfected the brew recipe and method to your taste.
Moka Pot/Percolator, AeroPress, Chemex, Pour-Over, French Press, etc.
Additional Brewing Technique for Aeropress: Stir the coffee mixture for 30 seconds, and then press down/filter it into the cup, gently and slowly for another 30 seconds.
It’s hard to imagine how varying the weight of coffee, the grind size, the kind or volume of water, or the water temperature, can make remarkable differences in your cup, but they actually do!
Have fun in the process of finding that Amazing Brew just for You!
