Brewing Tips

  • ESPRESSO: We recommend a traditional 1:2 ratio if pulling as a shot . And this espresso really shines as an Americano. 
  • POUR OVER: We have been brewing this one on the slightly cooler side, with a 45 second bloom, 2-3 pours and a grind that let's us do it in under 3 minutes. A 1:16 ratio is a good starting point.  
  • FRENCH PRESS: We recommend the James Hoffman method for this roast: 16.67:1 ratio // medium grind (not too coarse) // add water, do not stir, brew for 4 minutes // after 4 mins break crust gently, scoop everything that floats // let sit for another 5-8 minutes // don't press all the way, only use it as a filter at the surface of the brew
