Filter Brewing advice:
We brew the filter coffee in the coffee bar with the Hario V60 brewer. Use a 1:17,4 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 11,5g of coffee, a 200g of brewing water and a total brew time of 2:30. We recommend a grind size of 7,5.
Each pour is 50g of water at the following time:
00:00 (50g circle pour in 10s)
00:40 (25g circle pour / 25g centre pour)
01:10 (25g circle pour / 25g centre pour)
01:40 (25g circle pour / 25g centre pour)
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 45ppm as this should equate to a deliciously juicy and clean cup of coffee.
