Filter Brewing advice: 

We brew all the filter coffee in the coffee bar with the april brewer. Use a 1:17,5 brew ratio, aiming for a TDS of 1,25% or slightly higher for a clean and transparent taste. 

When brewing this coffee, we recommend a dose of 11.4g of coffee, a 200g of 200g of brewing water and a total brew time of 2:45-3:00. We recommend a grind size of 7,0.

Begin your brew with an initial 100g pour. Use your first 30g of the pour to saturate the coffee bed evenly whilst implementing a circular pouring technique. Continue your pour by completing the final 70g pour into the center of the coffee bed. Replicate this pouring format once again, commencing your second pour at 45 seconds. You can see below an example of the pouring structure:

 

1) 30g circular motion / 70g center motion (0:00)

2) 30g circular motion / 70g center motion (0:45)

 

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 100C degrees and the water hardness around 45ppm as this highlights the juicy and bright qualities of the coffee.
