Brewing Methods

How to create YOUR perfect cup of coffee!

When it comes to brewing a delicious, flavourful cup of coffee at home, the tool you use can make all the difference. With so many different coffee brewing methods, and lots of different products on the market, we’re here to break it down and help you make the best cup of coffee from the comfort of your own home. Whether you’re a coffee aficionado or just appreciate a good cup of coffee, these methods are perfect for the at-home coffee-drinker. 

Steeping method with a French press 

French press coffee is easy to make at home and produces rich, flavourful coffee using the steeping method. It’s also a great option if you’re making several cups of coffee at once. 

To make it at home, simply add medium coffee grounds to the press and pour in boiling water. Once it’s steeped for 3-4 minutes, press down the filter and serve. The fine mesh stainless steel plunger and filter help to eliminate any grounds in your cup, leaving you with a smooth, full-bodied, aromatic cup of coffee.   

Pressure method with an AeroPress 

The AeroPress coffee maker is a unique device that combines the convenience of a French press with the smooth taste of espresso. It’s durable, lightweight, and is a great option for a small at-home coffee bar or to take with you on the go.  

Using a gentle air pressure brewing process to extract the rich flavour and aroma from coffee, the result is a smooth, well-balanced cup of coffee. 

To make a delicious cup of coffee at home using the AeroPress, simply add coffee grounds and hot water to the chamber, then press the plunger through the coffee to extract the flavour. The AeroPress is completely customizable, allowing you to experiment with finding your favourite method. 

Pour over method (Drip) 

The pour over method is super simple to do at home, and produces a smooth, delicious cup of coffee. With the pour over method, you can brew the coffee directly into your favourite through a paper filter. Simply place a pour-over on top of the mug, insert a paper filter, add ground coffee, and pour hot water over the grounds (a gooseneck kettle is recommended for optimal pour over flow). The result is a perfectly brewed cup of coffee at home, with minimal clean up. 

Cold brew 

A good cold brew takes time and patience. This method will deliver a strong, smooth and sweet brew that will be well worth the wait. Gring your coffee beans on the coarsest setting available and combine with room temperature filtered water (20C or 68F) Let for 12 hours.  

Trying for the first time? We suggest 1 cup of beans, ground (NOT 1 cup of grounds) to 4 cups of filtered water. Like with our roasting process, you can adjust to find the strength you like.
