BEFORE YOU BREW
- For best results, we strongly recommend starting with whole bean coffee and grinding with a burr grinder immediately before brewing. If you grind your coffee too soon, it will quickly lose many of the compounds that give it such delightful aromas and flavors.
- While it may seem complicated, we think using a scale actually makes brewing easier by taking any guesswork out of the equation.
- Compared to a traditional kettle, a gooseneck kettle gives you optimal control over how fast you’re pouring and where the water hits the coffee.
