Brewing Tips

  • For light to medium roasts, brew for 4 minutes.
  • For medium dark to dark roasts, use a 3:30 minute brew time.
  • For very dark roasts, use less than 3:30 minutes.
  • To prevent coffee fines from entering your cup, wrap a thin cotton cloth around the strainer before pouring out the brewed coffee.
  • Alternatively you can use a coarser grind
  • If your coffee is too bitter, shorten the brewing time 
  • If your coffee is sour or salty, increase the brewing time slightly.
  • If your coffee is too watery or lacks flavour, add more coffee powder during the brewing process
