Create Great Coffee: Basics

One of the beautiful challenges of coffee is how interesting and complex it can be. 

With this guide, we're hoping to break down and simplify some of those complexities to give a few basic rules to follow to have great coffee at home.

1. Use freshly roasted coffee (preferably from Heirloom) and grind as close to brewing as possible.

 

2. Brew with 195°-205° water 

 

3. Brew with a water:coffee ratio of 15:1 to 17:1 making adjustments to taste

 

4. Store your coffee in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place
