We recommend that you buy fresh coffee beans and grind them on demand to prepare your beverage. Coffee is a product susceptible to rapid oxidation, this process is accelerated by grinding for the simple reason that grinding increases the surface that is exposed to oxygen.

We brew V60 or similar dripper in pursuit of clarity, so we use a lower temperature brew water. First you should rinse the paper filter with hot water from the kettle, to avoid paper aromas to alter your brew. Our method is pouring 80 grams of water over the grinded coffee. This step should take about 15 seconds for brewing and wait another 25 second for blooming. Then pour the rest of the water until you hit the target. The total brew time should be around 2:30 - 3 minutes. Adjust the grind size and temperature to match the desired taste profile.
