Kalita Brewing advice:
We brew the filter coffee in the coffee bar with the Kalita 155. Use a 1:17,0 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 210g of brewing water. We recommend a grind size of 5,5 (600 microns).
The pour structure as follows:
- 00:00 preinfuse the grounds, about 40g of water in 10s (pouring in a concentric circle. Grab the dripper and aggressively swirl it to ensure the slurry is fully wet until 15s)
- 00:40 pour 120g of water in 10s in concentric circles
- 01:00 pour 40g of water in 10s in concentric circle
- 01:10 swirl gently. (this will break up any channels that may have formed during the pour, in addition to ensuring a flat bed and minimising high and dry grounds)
Total brew time: 2:15 – 2:30 minutes

For this coffee, the optimal dose would be 20,5g. Using a 1:2,5 ratio, we generally aim for an extraction yield of 26,2% and a target TDS of 9,9%.
