V60 Brewing advice: 

We brew the filter coffee in the coffee bar with the Hario V60 brewer. Use a 1:16,67 brew ratio, aiming for a TDS of 1,40% or slightly higher for a clean and transparent taste. 

When brewing this coffee, we recommend a dose of 12,0g of coffee, a 200g of brewing water. We recommend a grind size of 5,5 (550 - 650 microns).

The pour structure as follows:

- 00:00 preinfuse the grounds, about 50g of water (pouring gently into the center and circling outward, about 10s. Grab the cone and aggressively swirl it to ensure the slurry is fully wet until 15s)

- 01:15 pour 100g of water in 10s as fast as possible in concentric circles  

- 01:35 pour the remaining water, 50g in 10s, gently in concentric circle

- 01:45 swirl gently. (this will break up any channels that may have formed during the pour, in addition to ensuring a flat bed and minimizing high and dry grounds) 

Total brew time: 2:30 – 2:40 minutes

 

Espresso Brewing advice:

For this coffee, the optimal dose would be 20,5g. Using a 1:1,9 ratio, we generally aim for an extraction yield of 22,1% and a target TDS of 11,5%. Depending on which grinder and set-up you're working with, the result will be varied however our recommended total brew time is between 20- 21 seconds brewing this coffee.
