Process Station: Finca Betel
Producer: Cesar Andres Ledesma Bermudez
V60 Brewing advice:
We brew the filter coffee in the coffee bar with the Hario V60 brewer. Use a 1:17,00 brew ratio, aiming for a TDS of 1,35% or slightly higher for a clean and transparent taste.
When brewing this coffee, we recommend a dose of 12,9g of coffee, a 220g of brewing water. We recommend a grind size of 7.0 (600 - 700 microns).
The pour structure as follows:
- 00:00 pre-infuse the grounds, about 35g of water (pouring gently into the center and circling outward, about 10s
- 00:40 pour 50g of water in 10s as fast as possible in concentric circles
- 01:10 pour 50g of water in 10s as fast as possible in concentric circles
- 01:40 pour 85g of water in 10s as fast as possible in concentric circles. Shake 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: 2:40 – 2:50 minutes
All grind settings reference a Ditting Sweet Lab 804. Please adjust your grind settings as necessary and use the recommended brew time as a reference.
Keep the water temperature at 99C degrees and the water hardness around 30ppm as this should equate to a deliciously juicy and clean cup of coffee.
