3 Simple Steps to Great Coffee
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
Use a medium-fine grind size. If you use too coarse a grind size, you may see a dripthrough rate that is up to 2x faster. If you use a fine grind size, you may find it more difficult to press. The average bag of preground store-bought coffee is a medium grind size that is optimized for drip coffee makers. For those who prefer to use a medium or coarse grind, we recommend the use of our Flow Control Filter Cap.
◾ 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!
