Brew Guides

In general, use higher brew temp and finer grind size.

Recommended brew methods

  • Espresso
  • Cloth filter
  • French press
  • Moka pot
  • Aeropress



Ratio (coffee:yield): 1:2

Time: 27s

Water temp: 200f 

It works great with both regular and alternative milk. For black, we like to add 0.5-1oz of hot water to the espresso to open it up and bring out more nuanced flavors.

Pour over

We love using a cloth filter like Nel drip for a richer cup, but paper filter works as well.

Coffee: 30g

Water: 400g

Grind size: Fine salt 

Water temp: Right off the boil

The pour: Pour in a spiral from center to the edge. Bloom with 30g of water for 45s. After that, pour in the rest of the water (370g).

French press

Coffee: 30g

Water: 450g

Water temp: Right off the boil

The press: Press when the timer hits 5:30 mins. Pour immediately.

Aeropress & Moka pot

If you crave an espresso but don’t have the espresso machine at home, these recipes from James Hoffmann could help. They might not exactly produce an espresso but they still do create a beautifully rich cup.
