"A BEAUTIFULLY SIMPLE MACHINE THAT MOST OF US HAVE. GREAT FOR A FULL BODIED CUP OF COFFEE."

SO, YOU’VE PURCHASED SOME OF OUR WONDERFUL COFFEE AND YOU CAN’T WAIT TO OPEN THE BOX AND SIP YOUR FIRST CUP. LET’S MAKE SURE IT’S THE BEST CUP IT CAN BE. WE’VE CREATED SOME BASIC BREWING GUIDES FOR THE MOST POPULAR BREWING METHODS, ADAPT THEM AS YOU WISH, IT’S YOUR COFFEE AFTER ALL!

BASIC EQUIPMENT

THE BEST PIECE OF EQUIPMENT TO HAVE IN YOUR COFFEE ARMOURY IS A SET OF KITCHEN SCALES. THIS MODEST LITTLE GADGET WILL HELP ELEVATE YOUR COFFEE EXPERIENCE TO NEW HEIGHTS. NOW WE KNOW YOU’RE THINKING “OH GREAT, SCIENCE…” BUT IF YOU TRULY WANT THE BEST CUP, A LITTLE BIT OF EFFORT GOES A LONG WAY. YOU’VE SPENT YOUR HARD-EARNED MONEY BUYING THE BEST COFFEE SO LET’S TREAT IT WELL.


WE NEED SCALES TO WEIGH OUT OUR COFFEE AND OUR WATER ACCURATELY. GOOD BREWED COFFEE COMES FROM HAVING THE CORRECT RATIO OF COFFEE GROUNDS TO WATER, IN ALL BREW METHODS. SCALES ALLOW US TO ACCURATELY MEASURE THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF COFFEE GROUNDS AND WATER EVERY SINGLE TIME, CREATING THE PERFECT CUP EVERY TIME.


THE SECOND ITEM TO HAVE IN YOUR ARMOURY IS A TIMER. ENSURING THAT THE COFFEE GROUNDS COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE WATER FOR A SPECIFIC AMOUNT OF TIME, DEPENDING ON THE BREW METHOD, WILL HELP CREATE THE PERFECT CUP.
