Cup Quality

We've selected the highest quality green coffee to roast. We've carefully roasted the beans to achieve the optimum flavor possible for you to brew at home.  

Now it is your turn. How do you achieve the best cup quality out of the roasted beans you've just purchased?

Here are a few things for you to consider:

  • Grounds - We assume coffee consumers know that coffee should be ground when it is prepared. However, many do not know that the grinder they are using might be heating the grounds or grinding unevenly - causing flavor distortions. To avoid this, we recommend using a burr grinder with adjustable grind settings.
  • Water Temperature - extracting the most flavor from a roasted coffee bean happens when the water you're pouring over your coffee is hot - but not too hot. Optimum water temperature is about 198 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Brewing Equipment - a regular cup of coffee can be brewed many ways. Pour over, French press, drip or pod coffee pot - just to name a few. There are so many preferences but the most common is a drip coffee pot. When considering this purchase - at minimum be sure that you can achieve the optimum water temperature, the filter basket is a cone instead of a flat bottom, and that the coffee stays warm through an insulated carafe instead of a heating element which can burn your coffee.

Now considering all of these things, we recommend a ratio of two tablespoons of ground coffee to six ounces of water when you brew. Of course, do consider your personal taste preferences and adjust accordingly.
