Cafézia Coffee can be brewed the same way you brew your regular coffee. As with all coffee, brewing is ultimately a matter of taste and varies person to person. Nonetheless, here are some tried and true instructions to brew a great cup of Cafézia.
There are a few guidelines that will always remain the same:
Measure to Taste: The general ratio is 2 tablespoons of coffee per cup of water. If you like your coffee stronger, add more coffee. If you like it weaker, add less.
Check your Water: Use cold water freshly poured from the tap. Also, make sure the water tastes alright. Use spring water if the water doesn’t taste great.
Clean your Machine: Make sure the inside of your coffee brewer is clean. Any oil or mineral residue inside your coffee brewer will hinder the taste.
Storage: Coffee deteriorates when it comes in contact with air. Store your coffee in a cool, dry place, ensuring the bag is sealed tightly.
Drip Coffee Machine
Follow your machine’s instructions
Don’t let the coffee sit on the burner for more than 20 minutes or it will develop a bitter taste, like any coffee
If grinding the beans yourself, grind to a medium-fine grind
Pre-ground Cafézia Coffee is the perfect grind for a drip coffee machine
Add the coffee to the French Press
Boil cold water and let the water cool for 30 seconds after bringing it to a boil
Add the water to the French Press and lightly stir the coffee
Let it steep for 4 to 5 minutes
Press the plunger down and serve immediately
If grinding the beans yourself, grind to a coarse grind (between 0.75 to 1 mm)
Pre-ground Cafézia Coffee works very well in a French press too
Press the coffee down tight into the espresso group (the part of the machine with the handle that fits under the espresso maker)
Follow your machine’s directions just as you would for regular espresso
Never use ground Cafézia Coffee in a whole bean espresso maker; these machines are designed to produce espresso with whole bean coffee only
