April Brewing advice: 

We brew the filter coffee in the coffee bar with the April brewer. Use a 1:15,00 brew ratio, aiming for a TDS of 1,30% or slightly higher for a clean and transparent taste. 

When brewing this coffee, we recommend a dose of 12,0g of coffee, a 180g of brewing water. We recommend a grind size of 8.0 (1000 - 900 microns).

The pour structure as follows:

- 00:00 pre-infuse the grounds, about 90g of water (pouring into the center and circling outward, about 10s)

- 00:45 pour 60g of water in 20s, circling outwards  

- 01:05 pour 30g of water in 15s in centre. 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: 2:15 – 2:30 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.
