Coffee Brewing Tips

The Basics

  • Always start with the highest quality coffee beans.
  • Keep your coffee making equipment clean.
  • Maintain freshness by grinding beans as needed.
  • Always use fresh, cold water for brewing coffee.

The optimum temperature for brewing coffee is between 196 and 204 degrees Fahrenheit. If using a filter or drip system, avoid brewing less than the brewer’s full capacity. Paper filters should be white and unbleached – also rinse before using. Use the proper ratio of coffee to water: the general rule is 1 level tablespoon of coffee per 6 ounces of water. Enjoy your coffee as soon as possible or if you want to drink your coffee later, pour it into a preheated thermos right after brewing. Coffee will retain optimum flavour and aroma for approximately 20 – 30 minutes after brewing.
