Here's the low-down on some of our favorite brewing methods. We've also included the grind you should use for your beans on each method so whether you grind your own beans at home or we grind them for you, you'll end up with some amazing tasting coffee. To ensure your beans stay fresh as long as possible, store them in a cool, dark place- do not store them in the refrigerator or freezer- and if you can,  grind your beans just prior to making your coffee.

COLD BREW

Cold Brew is a favorite for people with stomach problems. If regular, hot coffee upsets your stomach, cold brew is definitely your choice, and its milder pH gives cold brew a sweeter taste and more complex overall flavor. The brewing method consists of steeping coffee grounds for extended periods of time, then straining it and serving it cold.

FRENCH PRESS

French press is a simple coffee brewing device with a beaker and a plunger/filter. Coffee is made by pouring hot water over coffee grinds and letting it steep for a few minutes; then the plunger/filter is pressed down to separate the grinds. French Press coffee has a medium body, less than espresso but more dense than drip.

DRIP COFFEE

Drip coffee or filter coffee is the most popular preparing method in North America. The method involves pouring hot water over ground coffee beans; then the brew is strained with a paper filter, or a metal or plastic mesh. This method is quick and easy for your everyday cup of joe with consistent results and flavor.

V60 POUR OVER

The V60 is a cone-shaped dripper with spiral ridges along the inner wall and a single, large opening at the bottom. This design keeps the filter from sticking to the walls of the cone, encouraging extraction at the bottom and sides of the filter. Throw in a thin paper filter and fine ground coffee and a shorter brew time.

SINGLE SERVE BREWING

Single serve coffee machines brew one cup at a time. While not our favorite brew method due to the fact that some of the 'pods' contain inferior coffee, these machines are very convenient. The coffee is pre-packaged in variously shaped containers and inserted into the machine. A button is pushed, and coffee comes out.
