Brewing Basics

Brewing Basics

If you’re new to brewing, keep these tips in mind to make your perfect cup:

Press gently 

Pressing too fast or with too much force compacts the coffee grounds, making it harder to press into your mug 

Grind size

If the water is running through too fast, your grind is too coarse

Trust your taste 

Rather than focusing on brewing in the “right” way, prioritize finding a method that makes coffee you love. If it tastes good, you’re doing it right!
