Here are a few of the ways that we prefer to brew our cup of small batch coffee. These are baseline recommendations and you can always adjust if you want a stronger or lighter coffee!

Water should be heated to 200-205° F for all brewing methods

Tip: To reach 200° F temperature without a thermometer, boil water, and let it sit for 30 seconds.

  • Grind: Course

  • • Add a heaping tablespoon (7-8 grams) of coffee to the pot per 200 ml (6.7 oz) of water

    • Pour over water (200° F) in a circular motion to ensure that all the grounds are submerged.

    • Start your timer and wait for 30 seconds. This process is called Blooming!

    • After 30 seconds give it a gentle stir to break the crust.

    • Let stand for 3-4 minutes

    • Carefully reinsert the plunger into the pot, stopping just above the water and ground coffee

    • Press the plunger down slowly, exerting steady pressure


  • Grind: Medium - Course

  • • Grind 45g of Coffee for every 720g of Water (200° F).

    • Wet the filter with warm water, empty out the Chemex, add grounds. 

    • Start a timer, soak grounds entirely until you have reached 150g of water. 

    • When timer reaches 1:30, add water clockwise until 450g of total water.

    • When timer reaches 2:30, add water until 720g of total water. 

  • Grind: Medium - Fine

  • • Grind 22g of coffee for every 312g of water (200° F).

    • Start a timer, soak grounds with 50g of water.

    • Let grounds bloom for 30 seconds. 

    • Continue adding water in 50g increments in a clockwise fashion until you reach 312g of total water.


  • Grind: Fine

  • • Grind 35g of coffee for every 250g-270g of Water. 

    • Start a timer, pour 150g of water (200° F) for 15 seconds. 

    • Stir until 35 seconds on the timer. 

    • Put the lid on, wait until the timer hits 60 seconds

    • Invert AeroPress, give it a swirl, plunge.

    • Add 100g to 120g of water to taste.


  • Grind: Medium

  • While the above methods are our most recommended ways to brew the best cup of coffee, we understand that your daily grind might include using a traditional coffee maker. For that we recommend...

  • • 17g of water for every 1g of coffee.
