BREW / EXTRACTION GUIDE

Equipment specific guides are found below.

Coffee making is an art and a science, and small changes such as using filtered water or choosing a different grind size can play an enormous role in how your brew tastes. The guides below are by the type of equipment you are using. Use these as guides, not blueprints, playing with the ideas and honing your extraction process.

We offer these guides based on how we use the equipment and expect to see differences in our instructions compared to the manufacturer's state. Know that small changes, such as the amount of water(the dilution), grind size, all play a part, as do our individual preferences. Have fun with the process, get creative, and don't forget to stop and smell the coffee!
