Welcome to the beanbundle brew guide! Now that you have a hold of our freshly roasted beans you want to know what’s the best way to brew them. Here we have written a guide for you on how to extract the most from your beans, capturing all its essence and maximizing its flavours.
Freshness. Start with whole beans and grind them right before you brew. Grinding the beans too soon will lose many of the compounds that give your coffee its aromas and flavours
Precision. Using a scale to weight your beans instead of using a scoop will give you a much more consistent cup. Taking the guesswork out of the equation will actually make brewing a lot easier and ensure your coffee is to your taste every time.
Control. A gooseneck kettle will allow you to have a lot more control over how you’re pouring. The long spout allows you to control the flow rate and be more accurate with where your water hits the coffee.
Temperature. Water temperature is also an important aspect of brewing. You want your water to be hot but not boiling as boiling water will make your coffee taste bitter. If you don’t have a thermometer to accurately measure 195-202 degrees, let your water come to a boil and sit for 30 seconds to a minute depending on how much water is boiling.
Detail. Always wet your paper filers before you begin your brew. This will help seal your filter to the vessel and get rid of any papery taste.
