Coffee

AeroPress Directions

  1. Grind 22 to 24 grams fresh coffee.
  2. Stand AeroPress upside down with plunger extended and add coffee.
  3. Heat water to 190 - 195 F.
  4. Add enough water to wet the beans and mix them to ensure there are no dry pockets. This allows the coffee to bloom.
  5. Top off with water and let steep for 30 seconds.
  6. Put a filter in the AeroPress and wet it.
  7. Put cap on the AeroPress.
  8. Swirl the AeroPress around (to make sure there is no coffee stuck to the plunger), flip it over, and put it on top of the mug.
  9. Plunge for 10-20 seconds.
  10. Dilute the coffee by 50-60%. Optionally, if you want iced coffee, use a large mug and fill it with ice before you plunge the coffee into it.

French Press (30 oz) Directions

  1. Grind 80 grams fresh coffee.
  2. Put the coffee grinds in the french press.
  3. Heat water to 195 - 205 F. (Boil it and let it sit for 30 seconds.)
  4. Slowly add water to the french press.
  5. After one minute of infusion, stir the coffee.
  6. Let it infuse for 3 minutes more.
  7. Slowly depress the plunger. Make sure it goes down strait.
  8. Serve immediately. Don't let the coffee sit in the press for more than 10 minutes.

Chemex (6 Cups, 30 oz) Directions

  1. Grind 48 oz fresh coffee.
  2. Heat water to 195 - 205 F. (Boil it and let it sit for 30 seconds.)
  3. Place a filter in the Chemex and wet it using hot water. Pour out the water (the wetted filter should stick to the Chemex).
  4. Put the grinds in the filter. Pour just enough water over them to wet them and allow them to bloom for 10 to 45 seconds.
  5. Pour water slowly and in a circular motion over the grounds. Avoid pouring down the sides of the filter.
  6. Remove the filter and serve.
