Kalita Brewing advice:
We brew the filter coffee in the coffee bar with the Kalita 155. Use a 1:17,5 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)
- 01:15 pour 120g of water in 10s in concentric circles
- 01:35 pour 40g of water in 10s 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 19,0g. Using a 1:2,5 ratio, we generally aim for an extraction yield of 23,5% and a target TDS of 8,9%.
