Brewing instructions

Cafézia Coffee can be brewed the same way you brew your regular coffee.  As it is with all coffee, brewing is ultimately a matter of taste and may vary person to person. Nonetheless, here are tried and true instructions to brew a great cup of Cafézia.

General Guidelines

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 natural 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

  • If grinding the beans yourself, grind to a medium-fine grind

  • Don’t let the coffee sit on the burner for more than 20 minutes or it will develop a bitter taste, like any coffee

French Press

  • Grind the beans to a coarse grind (between 0.75 to 1 mm)

  • Add the ground coffee to the French Press

  • Boil cold, clean 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

Espresso

  • 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
