Coffee Brewing Tips

Posted by Lagares Coffee Roasters on Dec 14th 2017

Below are some tips/guidelines to help you properly brew coffee. 

Drip Brewer:

1. For a flat bottom filter, use a medium grind that resembles sea salt. Cone filters use a finer grind that resembles granulated sugar.

2. Use 2 tablespoons of ground coffee for every 6 ounces of filtered water. (adjust to your preferred taste)

(For best possible flavor, use filtered or bottled water and use a brewer that boils water between 195 and 205 degrees F)


Coffee Press:

1. Use coarse ground coffee that resembles sea salt, and measure 2 tablespoons per 6 ounces of water

(adjust to taste—I sometimes use 2 or 3 heaping table spoons per 12 ounces of water)

2. Fill the press with hot water that’s just off the boil (between 195 and 205 degrees F). Make sure to lightly stir to ensure saturation of all the grounds.

(For best possible flavor, use filtered or bottled water.)

3. Place plunger back on the press without pushing it down. Let the coffee brew for at least 4 minutes (I personally prefer to stop brewing at 4 min).

4. Gently push down the plunger until it reaches the bottom of the press.

Serve and Enjoy!
