There are lots of ways to make a stellar cup of coffee, but we've been using this tried-and-true recipe in our cafes because it pulls out amazing flavors and is super repeatable. For those of you who want to scale up or down, we brew using a 1:16.7 brew ratio. In other words, for every gram of coffee, we use 16.7 grams of water. One gram of water is equal to one milliliter of water.
- 24g coffee (Holiday Blend is great!)
- Kalita Wave, but any brewer will do
- Don't forget the Filters!
- Gooseneck Kettle w/ 200°F water
- Scale that reads to 0.1g
- Timer (if your scale doesn't have one)
Start a timer and pour 50g of water down the center in a slow, controlled stream. You can pour in quarter-sized circles.
00:30 First pour
At 30 seconds, pour a slow, controlled stream in quarter-sized circles until you've reached 150g water weight
01:00 Second Pour
When the timer reads 1min, begin pouring in a straight stream down the center until the scale reads 300g
02:00 Last Pour
Finish your pour at 400g and enjoy! Aim to finish between 3:30-4min
