Brewing Basics

  1. Use freshly ground coffee for the richest flavor and smoothest brew.
  2. Water quality makes a big impact on your coffee’s flavor! So always use clean, filtered water.
  3. Brew tastes a little off? Try adjusting the grind size. If it’s light and sour, try a finer grind. If it’s dark and bitter, try a coarser grind.
